Drupal Promotional Calendar

You can now add dynamic events calendars to your sites. To do this, use the new Promotional Calendar content type in Drupal. Calendars can be added to the center, left or right sidebars.

Before you add a calendar, you will need to contact the Department of Event Management, x. 5362. Each department will receive a webName after the content and format of the calendar are determined. See below for instructions on how to add the calendar to your site AFTER you have received confirmation that a calendar has been created. (You will receive a calendar webName at that time).

  1. Go to the page or sidebar where you'd like to add the Calendar
  2. Click Add in the Edit Console
  3. Select Promotional Calendar from the list of content types
  4. Enter your department's webName in the webName field
  5. Enter the type of Calendar in the spudType field (see below)
  6. Press the save button
