With all of the following:

  • One or more pages listing all the forthcoming events

  • One or more pages listing all the past events

  • Each event archived automatically after the event date has passed

  • Forthcoming events automatically listed on the home page

  1. Select Content > Add Content > Events from the dark gray menu bar at the top of the page, then complete the form that appears.

    Do not set a domain-specific path.

  2. Save your page as draft, then review and edit as needed.

  3. When ready, select the Apply button to set the moderation state to Published.

  4. If a menu item to Events is not already included in your site’s primary navigation, let us know at Website and Communications Support and we’ll add it for you.

  • On one page combined with news

Create a new page or edit an existing news page, then add your news and events info.

  • On one page just for events

Create a new page, then add your events info.

You can model your event listings on one of these or create your own or ask for help at Website and Communications Support.

For all other School of Pharmacy sites

The School of Pharmacy Web Advisory Committee manages event listings that appear at the following locations:

Events on these sites appear with all of the following:

  • One or more pages listing all the forthcoming events
  • One or more pages listing all the past events
  • Each event has its own page
  • Each event archived automatically after the event date has passed
  • Forthcoming events automatically listed on the home page

Event listings can be shared among these sites. For example, a Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry event can appear on pharmacy.ucsf.edu as well as pharmchem.ucsf.edu.

Recurring events

In some cases, an event will have multiple dates or locations, and these are handled differently. Examples:

Should you require a recurring event, let us know at Website and Communications Support and we’ll help you set up and configure it, then train you to maintain its listings.
