You use widgets to add content (such as stories, links and upcoming events) to your bulletin or web page. They are essential design features, and each one has a different function.
In this article we'll take a closer look at the Upcoming Club Events widget, only available for District accounts. This widget displays a list of events occurring in the future from the club accounts within your District. For a club to display the events in this widget for the district website, the club should set the Show on District Calendar option, from the event’s Details page.
If you are using the club version of ClubRunner, use the Widgets: Upcoming Events widget article to list your own club’s events on your club’s website.
To access any widget, you will need to be logged in to your District’s member area. Then, access your webpage editor through the top navigation menu, by clicking on Website, and then Designer Home.
In the Recent Pages section, hover-over the home page, or a custom page, then click Open.
In the Live Designer, click the Content tab in the top right.
Click the Events widget group in the Content tab. You may need to scroll down the list of widgets, or click Preformatted Widgets, to minimize this group.
In the Events widget group, drag-and-drop the Club Upcoming Events widget into a layout section displaying Drop Here, or above-or-below another widget on the page.
To edit the widgets properties, hover-over the widget in the left side live designer, then click the Gear icon in the top right. To remove the widget from the page, click the X icon.
