How to install a 25 Live departmental calendar
Setting up your calendar is a two step process. First you will create the Main Calendar Script page and then you will create the Calendar Block.
Main Calendar Script
Once you have found your department's main calendar select the Main script and copy it to your clipboard, then proceed to your CMS site admin screen. Next create a new general content page. To do so click the add content button, then in the resulting screen click "General content page".
Publish the page but don't provide a menu link. Verify that the script is working. See an example of a working script below. Once the page is published, edit the page and make note of the URL alias of the page. You will need the url alias when creating the Calendar Preview Block.
Once published your page should look like this.
Creating the Calendar Preview Block
When the main calendar page is created and published go back to the 25Live Calendar Scripts page and locate your department's Preview calendar script. Copy it then return to your sites CMS admin screen. Once there click on Structure and then Blocks. This will take you to a list of all of your blocks. Next click Add block.
Enter a title for the calendar preview block and go to the body section. You will need to change the Text format to Plain or Simple Text. Once that is done paste the Preview code into the body text area.
Next make sure that the teaser URL of the preview script is set to the right URL. You should have noted the URL of your published main calendar page on your departments site. Make sure the teaser URL points there. The correct format is "//yoursite.ku.edu/yourURLalias"
Finally place the calendar preview block where you want it. We recommend the Unit/Sidebar. For more information about placing blocks please see our How To page on Blocks.
When you are done your calendar should look like this.
