How do I use the Events Widgets on my group's public website?

Use BigTent's  Upcoming Event Widget to publicize events on your group's existing public website.  Using this widget, you can stream events posted to your BigTent group right onto your website, and for privacy's sake, you get to pick which events show up.  

 

Groups who use BigTent's free Public Page will automatically have the upcoming events widget included on it.

To enable the Public Page, go to [group name] > Utilities > Manage > Group
Public Page and click to turn it on. 

 

 

To use the Upcoming Events Widget with your group's existing public website:
 

  • Sign in to BigTent and go to [group name] > Utilities > Manage > Widgets.

 

  • Go to the Upcoming Events section. You will then have the options on how far in advance you want events to display and the maximum amount of events you would like to display.  By default the widgets will display events in the next 3 months and a maximum of 5 events.

      
 

  • Copy the HTML code from the desired Widget and paste it into the code of your group's website on the page where you want the events to appear.

 

After you've placed the widget on your public website you need to select the events you want to be shared on the public website. This way, only select items (rather than every entry) will appear on your website.

 

Note: Only group administrators or members with event posting permissions can share  events on your public website.
