Let everyone know about your upcoming event by posting the news on your site.
The Event Details Box is a page element that helps to more effectively promote your events. The box appears at the top of the page and draws visitors’ attention, highlighting content and providing details about the event such as time, location, special subjects, contact information, and more.
The Event Details Box (see Summer School Conference sample at right) can be used with pages that describe your events and can also be used in news posts about that event, giving incentive to readers to follow the provided link for more information.
The Event Details Box (see example at right) should be created within the Events folder (or in a subfolder, if the event has its own folder there) in the Ektron Workarea.
After the Event Details Box is created, it can be added to any page, such as a hub page for an event, or to a news post about the event. To add the Event Details box to page or a news post about an event:
The Learn More Block in your Metadata tab will now show the content title. Submit the page or news post, and then look at the page in your Web browser to see the box in place.
You can also use Event Details Boxes from other IUP websites by simply navigating to the appropriate folder and choosing that element. For example, there could be a news post in the Department of Psychology that notes the MARTI event, and the MARTI Event Details Box could be
added to the Psychology post, giving instant access to further information with minimal effort.
