Events and Tickets

Adding event tickets is done by building an event and adding a ticket to that event. There is one small caveat, you cannot add tickets to recurring events. You must build a separate event for each ticket. “The Events Plugin” “Tickets” addon is what is used to accomplish this.

How it works: Your website is built on Woocommerce, an ecommerce plugin. Everything that you sell, or charge money for, is a “Product” of Woocommerce. When you build an event and add a ticket the “Tickets” plugin is adding a “Product” to Woocommerce. (Though you will rarely need to, you can edit and delete and adjust all tickets/products here.)

Adding an Event:
From the Left Menu, Go to Events > “Add New”
This interface will be familiar as it is the same plugin that you have been using with some upgrades and addons. For the most part you will add an event just as you normally do, but with these differences:

1. You must put the dates, times and recurring info in the “Excerpt” section. (This is because we are not displaying the events with the “Events Plugin” we are using the “UAG Post Grid”)
2. Any event that you add a ticket to cannot use “Event Series” (recurring events.) Each event with a ticket must be built separately. (You can however, use “recurring events ” on RSVP’s)
3. Any event that uses a ticket MUST use the “Tickets” category in addition to the the placement category.
4. Tickets MUST be added by building an event.
5. Featured Images should be landscape images using the 16:9 aspect ratio or close to it. I recommend 1024px BY 512px.

Change Header Images

Almost all headers can be found in our “custom layouts” sections. To see them all, From the left side menu go to: [Appearance > Custom Layouts] All header sections will begin with “HEADER – 

For the most part, OTHER THAN CHANGING THE IMAGE, you will not need to edit Headers. Below is a short video that will show you how to change images. The majority of the images used in most headers are 1200 by 800 pixels.

If you want to keep the header as a full page header (where it takes up the full screen) you need to make sure the images that you use are at least 1200 by 800 pixels so that the images format correctly.When adjusting the height, notice that the height adjustment measurement is not in pixels “PX”, but in ViewHeight “VH”. View height is a percentage of the screen seen by the viewer.

50vh Is about the same as 800px on most screens. However, on smaller screens there may be issues using pixels. When you use “vh” it will show as a percentage of the screen regardless of the viewers screen size.

Edit UAG Plugin Content

CONTENT

The plugin “UAG” “Post Grid”
UAG “Post Grid” pulls posts, pages and events into content sections. You can adjust the settings on how, what and where these posts show up by clicking on the visible post above and using the controls on the right hand menu. My suggestion is that you FIRST duplicate this section and make adjustments and then delete the unwanted section when done editing.
