Events

Introduction to Taxonomy and Views

In this webinar we will discuss:

  • Basics of Drupal Taxonomy – vocabulary and terms, focusing on creating taxonomy for the 'event' content type
  • Introduction to Drupal Views - a look at the views interface, how to edit an existing view and customize the 'Event' view with color coding and filtering using taxonomy.

Taxonomy Filters

You can use “Taxonomy” to filter your content. For example, let's say you have 3 locations and events happening in all those 3 locations. Visitors to your site may not want to look through your entire calendar at events across all of those locations; they may want to see only the ones happening close to them. What you want is a way to categorize your events by location, and allow your visitors to filter the events by location.

In the example below, we add taxonomy to the ‘Event’ content type and place a filter on the calendar.

Events

Creating ‘Events’ is a highly recommended step, as you want to keep visitors of your website informed on things going on in the store. The steps below give you all the options available when doing so. The only required options are those noted with a red asterisk*.

CREATE AN EVENT

Navigate to: Content > Add Content > Event

There are several available fields for you to utilize to create the content of your page:

Upcoming Events Detailed

Create a view that will populate with upcoming events, and will include a field for an author photo, the body, and date.
