Post an Event

The Events Feed Plugin displays a nicely formatted list of your upcoming calendar events and can be a very useful tool to spur community involvement. It works by collecting data from submissions to events.umt.edu, and displaying the content on a particular page in your site. You can post an event for the calendar at events.umt.edu. In the column on the right, click 'Post Your Event'.

Events Feed Helper

The Events Feed Helper will allow you to easily search for Category IDs and Event Tags for use with the Events Feed plugin in Cascade CMS.  Simply choose from the categories and tags presented and press the submit button. The Helper will show you which IDs and Tags correspond to your selection. After the Events Feed Helper generates the corresponding codes for your tag selection, you can insert these codes in the "Event Tags" field of the Events Feed Plugin. You can enter additional codes by clicking the green "+" icon.
