Updating Events

In Avada, the plugin called The Events Calendar controls the events and displays them to the user. This plugin is developed by the same organization that make the Avada theme, so it integrates seamlessly.

To update events and event components, Click on the Events sidebar menu to see all the sidebar options:

Event Components

In the Events sidebar, you'll have a bunch of options. The main ones that you need to focus on are these:

  • Events - These are the actual events. To make it easy on yourself, you can duplicate existing Events using the Duplicate This button. On the events edit screen, be sure to fill in as much information as possible. Within each event, you can optionally select Event Catagories, Venues, and Organizers to easily include helpful information directly in your event.

  • Event Categories - These are how your events will be categorized. This can help if you have many events and need to display different types on different pages. Some folks have categories for each year, event type (social, fundraising, etc), or other criteria.

  • Venues - These are the physical locations (or remote/online locations) wher your events will be hosted. Be sure to add all the venues that you typically use for your events to save time later. Fill in as much information as possible, including the address, so Google Maps shows up properly and users can find your events.

  • Organizers - These tell the user who is organizing the event, and provide contact information, like website and email address to the user.
