The Event Details Box is a page element that helps to promote your events. The box should appear at the top of the page layout to draws visitors’ attention. It highlights content and provides 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.
Remember to also create a news post about your event!
The Event Details Box should be created within the Events content 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.

When you are satisfied the page and the event details box looks the way you want, submit the page layout.
You can also use Event Details Boxes used on other IUP departmental or office websites by simply navigating to the appropriate content folder and choosing their event details box, giving access on your site to further information with minimal effort.
