MODULE: EVENT CALENDAR
The Artsopolis Event Calendar module remains one of the most robust solutions in the industry. Visually powerful, easy to manage, our event calendar is loaded with features and continue to expand as our network members help guide the development of our product.
Event listings can be managed from both the ‘front end’ user dashboard and administrative control panel. All submissions require approval by the website’s content administrator, though subsequent edits by front end users can be set to bypass the administrative review process. If the bypass option is activated then all listing edits will appear on the website immediately.
An unlimited number of event categories (and sub-categories) can be added. We also support “hidden” category types that can be made available on the event submission form, but not visible to the public. The purpose of such types are often as a means of gathering and sharing event listings that may not appear on the website itself, but will be made available to other calendaring partners via our Content Syndication module.
Our display management tool allows you to select events for spotlighting or featuring on the home page and all event category pages. Multiple events can be selected for spotlighting or featuring in advance, ensuring that your most important events are always prominently displayed. And, we also provide an ‘auto fill’ feature that ensures that if you have not selected any events for spotlighting or featuring that there will always be events to fill in those valuable positions.
