Release Day: Building Calendar and Event Displays

The Date and Calendar modules are powerful and full of configuration options. When I was first learning how to use these modules, I scratched my head more than a few times trying to make sense of it all. Luckily for you, in this Using Drupal series on Event Management, Addison Berry knowledgeably guides you through the process of building an event content type with a date field, Views, and configuration that will enable you to add both calendar and listing displays of your date-based content to your Drupal 7 site.

This week, we've got three new videos for you, based on Chapter 6: Event Management, from the book Using Drupal, 2nd Edition:

In these lessons, Addison will walk you through the process of creating both calendar-based and list-based displays of events that are stored in a new event content type.

Interested in providing sign-ups for your events? Next week, Addi will introduce us to the Flag module: how to set it up to record sign-ups and keep track of attendees using Views. She'll also introduce a few other modules that can help you take your Drupal-based event management to the next level.

If you're enjoying these case-study based video lessons for site builders, then check out these other videos based on the Using Drupal book in this guide.

Happy event managing!
