Pages: Events

Create date-specific content using Event pages and feature them on a sitewide calendar


With the exception of meetings, which have their own special type of page, Event pages are the go-to type whenever the content you want to feature is date-oriented. Event pages are designed to make displaying dates, both on the pages and their teasers, easy and intuitive; otherwise, they allow for all of the same powerful functionality that Standard pages feature, including text formatting, elements, and teasers.

Event pages are designed to prominently feature the date and title of the page, so they have a number of common uses, including:

  • classes & workshops
  • planned maintenance
  • open houses 
  • holiday events
  • any parties, celebrations, awards ceremonies, or other community events!

A less common, but equally viable use case for Event pages are blog posts, which you can see an example of here >
