Firstly, to add a new event into Eventlist, you’ll need to be logged in as a front-end editor into your joomla site and have Eventlist module installed and activated.
This lesson is for front-end editing, which enables you to add an event, and venue from the front end of a Joomla site
Step 1. Adding a new Event
Click on the ‘Add new Event’ icon on the right hand side of the page
** Important note ** You will need to have Event ‘Categories’ set up in the category list. If this list is empty you can not save a new event. New event categories can only be added in the Back-end control panel of Joomla. Step 3, below explains this process in more detail
Step 2. Adding Event Details
1. – Add a Title into the title bar
2. Click on the “Select” button to select a venue from your current list – or – ‘Submit new venue’
3. Select category from your list -
** Important note ** If you do not have any ‘categories’ in your category list you will not be able to save your event.
Step 3. Adding a Category if you don’t have any Categories in your Drop-down list
The problem here is that you can’t add a new category to the drop-down list in Front-end editing. You will need to access the Back-end of your Joomla site, if you don’t have Back-end access you will need to talk to the site Administrator. Once inside Joomla go to ‘Eventlist’ in the ‘Components’ Menu, then either ( 1 ) open the Category window or ( 2 ) Add Category button in the main EventList control panel.
I’ll assume that if you have access to the Back-end of Joomla you’ll be able to Add a new category.
Step 4. Add Dates & Times
Add dates by clicking on the calendar button, insert time in the appropriate fields (*note*) Time format requires ” : ” as a separator.
Step 5. Select ‘Save’
You can go back and edit an Event after it has been saved by selecting the Edit icon
