Options Sidebar

In the sidebar on the left are four tabs. Here is a breakdown of what you can do in each tab:

1) ‘Options’

How to set the display for your events feature: This option allows you to choose how you’d like the events displayed on the page. You can change the display format for your Events feature at any time without affecting your existing event listings.

  • List: Displays the events as a list. Provides the option to set the quantity of upcoming and past events displayed on the page. You can display up to 20 upcoming and 20 past events on the page. Event details are included in list view on the main page.
  • Table: Displays upcoming events in a nicely formatted table with columns (date, event, location) and a link to past events. Event titles are clickable, and will display a pop up with additional event details if specified.
  • Carousel: Displays 2-4 events on a slide at a time. Visitors can scroll through the events using the slider, or click to see the full list.
  • Calendar: A view of your upcoming and past events by month. Visitors can click highlighted dates for event details, and browse through the months.
  • Show share links?: If selected, this will display share links for the events, so that visitors can easily post your events to social media or send them by email.

2) ‘Tickets’

If you’ve selected the option to sell tickets for an event, this tab will allow you to view or print your guest lists. You can share this list with venue staff by sending them the URL and password.

3) ‘Payment settings’

This is used to set up payment processing for selling tickets. For more information, please view the ‘Selling Event Tickets’ help article.
