The Event/Conference site structure is designed to cover the most common elements that are central to any larger event, but you can easily edit the menu and pages if they do not fit your needs. Choosing the Event/Conference site preset will pre-populate your website with these menu links and pages: HOME, Program, Speakers, Register, Logistics, About.
NOTE: Only the Project/Lab/Small Group site type offers the Event/Conference preset option.
Select Event/Conference from the options given in Step 2 of the site creation process.
- Click Next to select a theme.
- Click finish to redirect to your new site.
Below are tips and examples of the kinds of content to consider including in each section.
Purpose: To describe the programming for your event. There is also a sub-page for a separate schedule.
Examples: Session descriptions, an hour-by-hour breakdown of the event schedule.
Purpose: To highlight the presenters at your event. This section uses the people app to display profiles that can contain a bio and image.
Additionally, you could opt not to use the features of OpenScholar's Events App and instead embed a Google Form or link off to other event registration options.
Purpose: The logistical details that your event attendees will need.
Examples: Directions, maps, parking, accommodations.
Purpose: To provide an overview, history, or other background information about your event.
