Add your Featured Event using the Event Block

To add a Featured Event using the Event Block functionality, you first need to create your Event Block

  1. Navigate to _blocks > reusable. Once there, click +Add Content > Event Block
  2. Enter a XHTML/Data Definition Block Name (previously System Name) at the top of theContentscreen.

The XHTML/Data Definition Block Name is the name that is displayed in the navigation panel in Cascade. Unlike the a page name, the XHTML/Data Definition Block Name of a Event Block will not appear in a URL.

Best Practice: Keep names short; use only lowercase letters, numbers and dashes. Do not use spaces or underscores.

  1. The fields in the Event Block are the same as the fields in the Featured Event manual entry, with two exceptions.
    1. The Heading for the Featured Event is added when you add the block to a page.
    2. You need to check the Is this a featured event? box to get the Featured Event Text box to display (this is the same as the Text box in the manual entry above).
  2. When you have filled in all of the fields, click the three dots ("kabob" menu) next to Preview Draft at the top right. Then, click Check Content & Submit to save your page. The spelling/link checker window will appear. Once you have reviewed and corrected any issues, click the blue check mark to finish submitting your page. Your page is not saved until you click this checkmark, even if you have no spelling or link errors.

Then, you need to add the Event Block to your page. 

  1. Select the Event Block radio button.
  2. Heading is large text centered at the top of the featured event section. Do not duplicate Title field, which will be pulled from your block (Heading can also be left blank). Suggestions: “Upcoming Event” or “Featured Event.”
  3. Event Block: Search or navigate to the event block you created.
