WEBINAR: Virtual Events with Zoom and the Soapbox Engage Events app, 11/5 at 3 pm ET Register >>

How can I send people directly to the registration page for an event?


For certain events, you might not want registration to require two clicks. Perhaps you already have a custom landing page somewhere else on your site with all the event details. As such, you might want to skip the initial event detail view for an event and link directly to the event registration page for the Events app. To do this, you'll need to use the secure URL for the registration page. That will vary depending on whether or not your site has a custom SSL URL or uses the Soapbox default SSL URL.

For Engage, you can use the following:

  • Soapbox Default SSL URL: https://{prefix}.secure.nonprofitsoapbox.com/component/events/event/rsvp/{event-id}
  • Custom SSL URL: https://www.myorg.org/component/events/event/rsvp/{event-id}
  • Example: https://demo.secure.nonprofitsoapbox.com/component/events/event/rsvp/127

For Engage, you may also swap out the "component/events/" portion of the URL by using the standard URLs for the default Upcoming Events or Calendar pages like this:

  • Soapbox Default SSL URL: https://{prefix}.secure.nonprofitsoapbox.com/upcoming-events/event/rsvp/{event-id}
  • Custom SSL URL: https://www.myorg.org/upcoming-events/event/rsvp/{event-id}
  • Example: https://demo.secure.nonprofitsoapbox.com/upcoming-events/event/rsvp/127
  • Soapbox Default SSL URL: https://{prefix}.secure.nonprofitsoapbox.com/calendar/event/rsvp/{event-id}
  • Custom SSL URL: https://www.myorg.org/calendar/event/rsvp/{event-id}
  • Example: https://demo.secure.nonprofitsoapbox.com/calendar/event/rsvp/127

If you use Soapbox CMS to manage your menus and have a customized URL for your calendar or upcoming events list, you can include it in the URL like this:

  • Soapbox Default SSL URL: https://{prefix}.secure.nonprofitsoapbox.com/{events-menu-item}/event/rsvp/{event-id}
  • Custom SSL URL: https://www.myorg.org/{events-menu-item}/event/rsvp/{event-id}
  • Example: https://demo.secure.nonprofitsoapbox.com/main-upcoming-events/event/rsvp/127

To figure out what your event id is, go to the Events Manager and grab the event id in the right hand "ID" column of your events list
