Events and calendars are displayed on your RediSite using the Event List/Calendar block. By default, the Event List/Calendar block appears on the Home page, where it displays a brief list of upcoming events, and on the Events page, where it displays a monthly calendar. You can place additional Event List/Calendar blocks wherever you want them.

To add and configure an Event List/Calendar block, follow these steps:

  1. Add an Event List/Calendar block to your page. (See Add Blocks to a Page.)
    The Add Event List/Calendar dialog box opens.
  2. See the diagram and table below to configure the events displayed in the block, and then click Add to add the block to the page.

    • Future Events shows upcoming events.

    • All Events shows all past, current, and future events.
