UO Calendar module (Drupal 8/9+ sites only)

Use the Calendar button in the editor located on the right side of the editor bar which looks like a calendar page.

Insert UO Calendar content editor menu button

Clicking on this will open the calendar window where you can set your department tags as well as any other selections:

UO Calendar window select departments

If you would like to use the 3-up "slider" display option, go to the "Display Settings" tab at the top of the window, then choose the "slider" option from the "Calendar Theme" section:

UO Calendar window select slider option

Note: Do not ever check the "automatic" slide show option as this can cause users to miss your events!

If you are using the "Default" list calendar display option, you can turn off the "Share" buttons if desired under the Display Settings tab by unchecking those boxes:

UO Calendar window select no share buttons

Article and External Article News Feeds

Using article pages and tags, you can add dynamic content, such as news articles, announcements, etc., to automatic feeds.

The “Title” will be what appears in your automatic feed.

In the “Tags” section, enter the appropriate tag for the automatic feed you want your item to appear in (announcement, calendar, updates, etc.). You have to use the same tag every time because it pulls directly from the wording of the tag.

If the event is tied to a date that appears in your automatic feed, in the “Important Date” section, enter the date of your event. If it is only one day, you can uncheck the “Show End Date” box. If it is for multiple days, enter the starting date and the ending date.

If your news feed contains a summary of the item, click on "Edit Summary" next to Body to expand the "Summary" box.

Add a small summary (1-3 short sentences) of the information that is on the page. That summary will only appear on the page listing all of the items in your automatic feed.
