CMS Modules

Events

The Events Module lets users post a series of events and activities to the site and easily manage them so visitors can view this information. Events can be displayed on the website as a list of upcoming events, or as an interactive calendar which lets visitors browse through each month or click on a certain day to view the events which will occur. Your clients can easily add, edit or delete specific event information, and the events list will update in real-time on the website.

The Events Module adds significant value to Freedom websites, allowing these sites to provide information and reminders about key upcoming events. Sites can also provide lists of upcoming events which are ordered chronologically and automatically updated when new events are added to the system. When clicking on a specific event, site visitors can view specific information about the event including date, time and notes, and can even RSVP online or purchase tickets, integrating with Accrisoft Freedom's commerce tools.

A typical configuration of the Events module on Freedom sites involves a calendar and a lister on the homepage, as well as a complete list of events on an interior page. The calendar will display the current month, with dates that contain events in bold. Visitors can click on a date to see all of the events for that day, or click to view the "Month at a Glance" feature, which brings up a larger version of the calendar and displays all of the events for the month. The lister on the homepage often displays 3-5 upcoming events, ordered by how soon they will take place. A link allows visitors to view a list of all upcoming events, or only those of a certain category.

Anyone in the company can add events to the site without knowledge of programming or HTML. Events are added using Accrisoft Freedom's easy-to-use WYSIWYG text editor.
