Adding a menu item to display a list of Upcoming Events

created

If your site has the Soapbox CMS (Does my site have the Soapbox CMS?), with Soapbox Events you can create a menu item that displays a paginated list of Upcoming Events. This list can be filtered by a Term or Terms, if you are using Taxonomy to associate Terms with Soapbox Events.

To create a menu item displaying Upcoming Events:

  1. Go to Menus > Main Menu (or the menu where the menu item is located)
  2. Click New
  3. From Select Menu Item Type, click Events
  4. In the options that expand under Events, click Upcoming > Events
  5. In the Title field, type the name of the menu item that you wish to display to the end user
  6. Leave the Alias field blank. Non-Profit Soapbox will automatically create a web-friendly URL for you based on the title field. If you would like to customize the url, you can do so by entering text in the Alias field.
  7. Under Parent Item, select the appropriate menu item the new link should fall under.  If it is a main level item, do not select anything.
  8. For Access Level, leave it as Public. If you have a password-protected area of the site and wish to only display this menu item to logged in users, choose Registered.
  9. Under Parameters (Basic) in the right column, for Show Introduction, choose which option you prefer to display or not display any introductory text included in the Event Details

  11. For Show Venue, choose whether or not you wish to display the event Venue on the events list
  12. For Per Page, select how many events should be displayed on a give page of the events list
  13. For Page Intro, enter the text you wish to display at the top of the page above the events list. You can include images, embedded video and other elements.
  14. For Parameters Advanced, if you wish to display only events associated with a given Taxonomy Term, click the Select button next to Select Term
