Adding an event in the EasyDNNnews module is identical to adding a normal article. If you want to publish an article as an event then it is necessary to select the option “Add as event” in the Add/edit form. Then the additional fields will be Start date and End date.
If the option “All day event” is selected, then it indicates an all-day event without time limitations. The option “Show end date” indicates the display of the event ending time.
The EasyDNNnews also supports recurring events. If you want to create recurring events then it is necessary to select the option “Recurrence”. After you have selected the option “Recurrence”, additional options are displayed which you can configure.
Recurrence type – here you can determine a type of recurrence which can be daily, weekly, monthly or yearly. The selection of each recurrence type enables further settings.
Events can be intended only for showing on the web site and also it is possible to enable the event registration. If you would like to enable the event registration then it is necessary to turn on the option “Enable registrations”. Turning this option on will show the additional form with registration options.
Turn this option on if you would like to enable user registration to an event. This option is not possible to turn off afterwards if there is an existing registration to an event.
Number of seats
The maximum number of seats (attendants) who can apply for an event.
Start of registration
Determine the time when the user registrations are enabled. The first possible choice is “After publish date” which means that the registrations are possible immediately after publishing. The second choice is “Number of days before event” where we can set the number of days before the beginning of an event when registration is enabled.
End of registration
Determine the time when the possibility of registration ends. The first possible choice is “When events starts” which means that registrations are closed at the beginning of the holding event. The second possible day is “Number of days before event” where you can set number of days before the event starts when the further registration will be disabled.
Seat reservation per user
Here you can determine how many seats a single user can register. If the option “Unlimited” is chosen, then the user can register unlimited number of seats. If the option “Mix-Max value” is chosen then it is possible to set the minimum and maximum number of seats a single user can register.
Registration type: registration on site is necessary, registration on site is not necessary
Here you can choose a type of registration. If the option “Registration on site is necessary” is chosen then the user has to be registered on site or has to register. If the option “Registration on site is not necessary” is chosen, then users can register to an event without the need to be registered on the site.
Add registered users to role
Here you can set the possibility of adding a certain DNN security role for a user after the registration. If the selected option is “None”, then users do not add a security role. If the option “Select role” is ticked, then you can choose a role to which user can apply after the registration.
If this option is turned on, authorization is required for submitted registrations.
Disable further registrations
If this option is turned on, further registrations are disabled regardless the duration set in the settings.
Visibility of attendants list: None, All, Select role
Here you can set to whom the list of registered users is visible. If the option “None” is chosen, then the list is not visible to anyone. When the option “All” is chosen, then the list is visible to all, and if the option “Select role” is chosen, then you can choose a security role to which the list is visible.
Field template of registration form
Here you can choose a group of custom fields for the registration form. A group of custom fields is created in “Dashboard > Custom fields”.
Turn on default invitations
If this option is turned on, then the event will use the default settings for invitations. The default settings are valid for the whole portal. Additional changes and adjustments of the rules per event are possible.
Turn on default reminders
If this option is turned on, then the event will use the default settings for reminders. The default settings are valid for the whole portal. Additional changes and adjustments of the rules per event are possible.
After you have configured all the options, save the article (the event in this case).
