A map, or instructions on how to get to your event venue, are useful additions to your website! You can add one using the Venue section.
First, make sure that you are in the Registration Website Control Panel of the correct Event Workspace. Under Website Sections, click on the Venue icon nested in the ‘+ New Section’ module. A Venue section would be generated. Click on it to set it up.
Adding/Editing Event Venue
Click on ‘Edit Event Venue’ to set up your venue if you have not done so, or if there have been updates to it. In Event Overview, type in a postal code, address of your event venue, or the name of your venue. If it does not appear as an option, move the location pin in the map below the field manually to mark it. Remember to click ‘ Save’ once you are done. Head back to where you came from by clicking the ‘<’ arrow button in the Page Title Bar.
Look & Feel
You can choose to use either a solid colour, an image, or a video as the background of this website section. To use a solid colour, make sure that 'Colour' is selected on the switch placed under 'Background Type'. Then, simply select your desired hue from the colour picker or input its corresponding colour code (i.e. #FFFFFF) or RGB values. You will also be able to apply your Theme Colours by clicking their swatches in the colour picker.
To use a media, flip the 'Background Type' switch to 'Media' and then click on the ‘Upload Image/Video’ box to select your desired file.
- Recommended size: 2000px by 1125px
- Supported formats: jpg, png, mp4, mov, avi, wmv, 3gp, flv
You can also choose between a dark (default black) or light (default white) font colour for this section by toggling the switch placed under 'Text Colour'.
Adding A Map/Media
You can choose to add a Google Map widget, a picture, or even a video of your event venue. Simply click on the Information card to expand it, and select your preferred option - Map or Media. If Map is selected, it would automatically be added to your website. If Media is selected, click on the blue box to choose and upload your file.
You can add more information about your event venue by typing in the textbox under Additional Text. Parking details, or how to get there, are examples of useful information for your guests.
Under the Layout card, you can choose whether you want a centralized layout or a two-column layout with text on the right, or text on the left.
Remember to click ‘Save’ to save your work once you are done.
