Adding a menu item to display the details of a single event


If you wish, you can create a menu item that displays the details of a single event from within the Menu Manager of your site.

To create an event detail menu item:

  1. Go to the Menu Manager for your administrator
  2. Open the menu in which you wish to create the Event view by clicking the icon in the Menu Item(s) column. For most Engage sites without the Soapbox content management system, this will likely be the Hidden Menu or Soapbox Engage Menu but can vary based on your site structure.
  3. Click New
  4. From Select Menu Item Type, click Events
  5. In the options that expand under Events, Event > Details
  6. In the Title field, type the name of the menu item that you wish to display to the end user
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. Under Parameters (Basic) in the right column, under "Select Event" click on the "select" button. This will open up a popup window where you can see a list of all of your published events. From the popup window, choose the event that you want to display for this menu item by clicking on the event title.
  11. Click Save
