  • 0:13
    In this series, Michelle, myself, and Karen
  • 0:16
    are going to give you step-by-step tutorials
  • 0:19
    in how to work your way through getting a calendar on your website.
  • 0:23
    We're going to start off by creating a field
  • 0:26
    that will help you get data into your calendar
  • 0:28
    so we have events that have date fields in them.
  • 0:31
    We're going to go over all the proper modules you need to install
  • 0:34
    and all the steps that it takes, where to download them, what to enable
  • 0:37
    just to get yourself up and running with the calendar.
  • 0:40
    We're going to introduce you to a new way of getting calendar going with a template
  • 0:43
    instead of using the old methods that we used to
  • 0:46
    where we had to do a lot of configuring of the calendar even just to get one.
  • 0:51
    We're going to go through configuring some blocks
  • 0:53
    and adding blocks to our website so it will allow us to have a mini calendar and upcoming events.
  • 0:57
    We're going to go over some different ways of displaying your calendar
  • 1:01
    and doing things like striping
  • 1:04
    across multiple days, if an event happens to go across a Monday to a Friday.
  • 1:08
    We're going to introduce how to bring taxonomy in
  • 1:12
    and add terms such as boardroom and other different types of rooms
  • 1:15
    and things like that so you can kind of get
  • 1:18
    some organization inside of your calendar.
  • 1:21
    Along with that, we'll show you can add a legend
  • 1:23
    to possibly your sidebar, or anything like that,
  • 1:26
    that shows those taxonomy terms
  • 1:28
    to just kind of make the calendar a lot easier to understand.
  • 1:31
    We're going to do some other stuff like customizing
  • 1:34
    the look and feel of the calendar
  • 1:37
    and get involved in using repeating dates or multiple dates.
  • 1:40
    We're just going to dive right in,
  • 1:42
    and by the end of this series, you will become a calendar guru,
  • 1:46
    maybe even a calendar master,
  • 1:48
    but certainly you will definitely know how to get a calendar
  • 1:51
    up and running on your website.
