Updates to Events

We’ve made some updates to the Event content type and display. If you take a look at the Event content type in Drupal at https://drupal.unbc.ca/node/add/event (note that you’ll have to be logged in to see this), you’ll notice that we’ve added in some new fields.

Descriptions on how to use the new fields are included within the form. Training videos and documentation for web editors will be updated in the coming months, but in the meantime feel free to get in touch if you have any questions.

Here’s a preview of what to expect:

Add an Event Cover Image

New field: Event Cover Image

The Event Cover Image will display the image at the top of the Event page display, and also on the Events landing page at www.unbc.ca/events.

This is an Event displaying with a Cover Image (shown at the top), a Video Gallery and an Image Gallery down below.

The Events landing page displays a preview of the Cover Image to the left of the Events listing.

Create a Video Gallery

We’ve added in the ability to add Youtube videos to Events! Just paste the Youtube link into the Videos field.

New field: Videos

Video Gallery display

Add an Image Gallery

Create an Image Gallery directly in the Event by uploading images into the Image Gallery field.

New field: Image Gallery
