To add a new event to your site, go to your Dashboard, open the Events tab and click 'Add New'.
You'll be taken to a new page where you can add a new event. Here's what you can do:
Every event needs a title. It can be anything you want.
The slug is the actual link to your event. It will be added automatically after you've added a title. It doesn't need to be the same as the title though, so you can change it if you want.
The big white box is where you can add some information about your event. This is the actual text part of your event. Located on top of the content box is a toolbar so you can edit your text to be bold, italic, change its heading and more. The toolbar can be extended with more options. If your familiar with any document editor, you'll see the options here are about the same.
By clicking the Add Media button, located above the content, you can add any type of media to your event. The media will be inserted where you left off when typing. Images can be adjusted in size and positioned.
This is where you can enter the event's details, such as time and location.
Time & Date#
You can use the calendar picker to select the date of the event and specify at what time it starts and ends. It's also possible to tag the All Day Event, for when an event lasts an entire day.
If you haven't added any venues you can create a new one here. If you enter the correct address details and tag Show Map and/or Show Map Link, a map will be added to your events, so your fans will know where to find the venue.
If you have added venues, you can select one from the list or create a new venue simply by typing a name. The option to create a new venue will automatically appear.
If you haven't added any organizers you can create a new one here. You can fill the organizer's phone number, website and email address here. Email addresses will be hidden to prevent them from being spammed, and are solely for your own administration purposes.
If you have added organizers, you can select one from the list or create a new organizer by typing a name. The option to create a new organizer will appear automatically.
If the event has it's own website you can enter a link to it here.
This is purely for display purposes but you can add the cost of the event here so it'll be displayed on the event page.
The Publish box on the right side allows you to publish your event immediately or later, save it as a draft, change its visibility and preview the event. When you change its visibility to private that means only you can see it. If you set a password to the event then anyone with the password can view the event.
You can categorise events by adding categories here. For example, you're going on a tour. Just add a category named Tour. If you're performing at a festival, just add a category named Festival. This way your fans can select and see when you're doing what.
These options allow you to hide the event, sticky the event in the calendar view or feature the event when visitors view events lists other than the calendar.
To add a ticket to the event, you can search for it in the box. Tickets are products that have been tagged as ticket.
You can also add a new ticket to the event by clicking Add New Ticket. A pop-up box will appear where you can enter its details. For more information about adding tickets see: https://support.tunetail.com/docs/dashboard/tickets/adding-tickets/
Sometimes events get, for whatever reason, postponed or cancelled. Select the status of your event to let your fans know what's up. Don't forget to change the status when the event is guaranteed to happen.
The Featured Image is an image attached to the event which will be seen on top of every event, and on every list of posts (unless disabled). We recommend setting a featured image for every event. Featured images are automatically shown when sharing links on social media. They'll make your post stand out. For example, you could use the featured image to show off a poster or flyer of your event.
Event SEO Settings#
These settings affect how your event will be shown by search engines and social media. SEO settings are automatically completed but you can choose to override these. You can also choose for the event not to be indexed by your site and search engines, or to redirect to another event, post or page.
