Basic components

Basic components are very useful components that pagebloom supports. These include things like Calendars, News Items, FAQs, Testimonials and Forums.

Calendars display a collection of events into the future. You can add calendar events and specify a data and time and duration for each event.

The colour of the calendar will be based on your currently selected template/theme.

Only events that are in the past will be displayed in your calendar. This is what makes Calendar events different to news items. The news item summary panel always displays the last  news items regardless of their date. Calendar events 'auto expire' once their data has passed so you don't need to worry about removing them.

This makes Calendar events much more appropriate than news items for items that are really events which happen at a certain time.

If there are no future events in your organization then the calendar widget will not appear. It will automatically appear if there is at least one future event.

To add a Calendar event:

In the Admininstration page go to Basic Components > Calendar.

Click 'Add event' and choose the type of event you wish to add.

Enter the date and duration of the event and press Save.

You can disable the event at any time by marking it as not active.
