Show events in ticker

This article will show you how to insert an event ticker into a web page on your site. The event ticker shows upcoming events in a scrolling display without taking up much page space. The data source is configurable, allowing you to select events from categories or use metadata.

  1. Right click on your events folder and select New Content. The Create New Content window will appear.
  2. Click Web Page and then select your standard web page template, click Close.
  3. A new page will be created, give the page a title (eg. Events-ticker) and click Save.
  4. In the editable area of the page, right click to bring up the contextual menu. Select Insert Webcontrol and make any changes needed to the web control settings. Click Save, then Submit & Approve.
