The Home Page has a small sub-window designed for notices on forthcoming events, or other important news. This is displayed by a module called Forthcoming event notice, which displays an article called Forthcoming events. To change what is displayed on the Home Page, simply open and edit the article called Forthcoming events.

The intended way of formatting forthcoming events is in the form of a one-column table of very short entries, probably consisting of an event title and a date, with the event title linked to the calendar event, which should already have been created. This works best if the entries are centre-justified. See the example below.

If you want more than a single line in a table row, please use SHIFT-ENTER rather than ENTER, to avoid additional white space between the lines of text.

To add a link to a calendar event page:

  • You should already have created the calendar event;
  • In another browser window, open the calendar on the village website, find and click the event to open the event page for that event;
  • Select and copy the page's address from the browser's address window. This will look something like e.g. http://suttonpoyntz.org.uk/index.php/events-and-venues/village-calendar/icalrepeat.detail/2014/06/29/596/-/street-fayre.
  • Now, in the editor, select the text you want to act as a link, and click the Tree Link button. Paste the address of the calendar event page into the box labelled URL. For maximum portability, you should remove the leading http://suttonpoyntz.org.uk/ from this URL. In the Target tab, set Target to "Same Window". Click the OK button.

You can link to other pages, either in the Sutton Poyntz website or in other sites, in the normal way.

When you have finished editing the forthcoming events, click the Save & Close button, or the Close button to abandon your changes.

Here is an example of the forthcoming event notice, as of March 2019:
