During the creation or after you have created your calendar, you will be able to customize the categories that appear on it. This allows for you to be able to cater to the type of audience that is coming to your calendar or remove events that you do not want to appear on it automatically. To do this while creating your event calendar you can select the categories that you do not want to appear on your calendar as seen below.

After creating your calendar, you may want to change some of the settings for your calendar, whether this is the website URL, the location, the radius, or which categories you allow on your calendar. These settings can be changed at any time. To make these changes, you can follow these steps:

  1. Sign in to your Events.com account under ‘Calendar’ 
    Events.com Calendar sign in page
  2. Once in your account, in the upper right corner click on your name followed by ‘Dashboard’

Your calendar will require you to have a Google API token so that the Google Map will display correctly. Once you have created your calendar, we will automatically provide you with a Google API token.

If you decide to use your own Google API token, you will need to create your own Google Maps API token and whitelist it on your website. You can use this article to help guide you through this process: 

https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/javascript/get-api-key

Once you have created and enabled your token, you will need to replace it in the embed code. To do this you will place your token in the last line of the script.


<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1" />
<script src="https://unpkg.com/vue@2.6.12/dist/vue.min.js" />
<script src="https://cw.events.com/edc-calendar.min.js" />
<script src="https://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/js?key=‘YOUR TOKEN HERE’&libraries=places" />

The sidebar widget allows you to be able to add a small version of the calendar on any page outside of the calendar. This will help to promote your calendar on other pages and drive more traffic to the calendar. The sidebar widget will display a few events where users can see some popular upcoming events, go to the full calendar, or add an event directly from the widget.

To install this widget on any other pages outside of the calendar, you first need to gather your snippet by following these steps:

  1. Sign in to your Events.com account under ‘Calendar’
    Events.com Calendar log in page
  2. Once in your account, in the upper right corner click on your name followed by ‘Dashboard’
    Events.com Calendar dashboard
  3. In the list of ‘Your Calendars’, locate the calendar for which you are looking for and click on the ‘EMBED CODE’
  4. Finally, under the ‘Small calendar’ you will click on ‘COPY’ to gather your embed code

    Once you have copied your embed code, you will need to insert the following snippet into your website.
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1" />
    <script src="https://unpkg.com/vue@2.6.12/dist/vue.min.js" />
    <script src="https://cw.events.com/edc-calendar.min.js" />
    <script src="https://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/js?key=‘YOUR TOKEN HERE’&libraries=places" />
    

    To have this small version of the calendar be interactive, you will need to install the following script:
    The snippet you will use for this is:

    <edc-calendar token="TOKEN" interactive="true" width="WIDTH" height="HEIGHT" ></edc-calendar>

    Once you have installed the script, you will then need to decide which ‘WIDTH’ and “HEIGHT’ will best fit your website. We recommend the following combinations”

    300×600
    300×280
    300×100
    728×90

As required to be able to earn revenue from the revenue share program, you will need to add a navigation link that will take users directly to the event calendar page. You can prompt users to go to this page by calling it either “Event Calendar”, “Community Calendar”, “Local Events” or some combination of this to alert them to this section. From there, users will be able to see events happening in the area or add an event to the calendar.
