Create an event listing page

  1. Go to common content > Searches> Events – Insert Events Listing Settings
  2. On the template select a theme, venue or category
  3. Point the search url and details url to the events page you created in Create an event page step 1 and 2
  4. Add default placeholder for button text

Create an event search form

  1. Create an events search form under common content > Searches > Events
  2. Insert Events Search Form template (Found under Form Templates)

These ID’s will pull the latest dated events from the events system to be displayed onto the webpage.

    Add in lookup values if not found for the venue, theme, category. Create the lookup values if they are not available.
