Step 1: Drag the Widget to your Sidebar

To activate your Upcoming Events Widget, go to APPEARANCE > WIDGETS and find the UPCOMING EVENTS Widget. Drag this widget to your desired location in your sidebar.

Step 2: Select Your Options

You can change the title of your “Upcoming Events” by changing the Title section. You have the option to select how many options are displayed in the widget or you can select how many days worth of events to display. Please note that you can use this widget multiple times, as we will demonstrate below.

Step 3: Getting down to the Details

If you are using categories, the Upcoming Events Widget is a great way to showcase the “Next ABCD Event”. For example, let’s say you want to highlight the next Restaurant Night. Change your Title to reflect the Upcoming Event, Limit the Number of Events to “1”, then check the box that says “Limit To: Events with these Categories” – select the category you wish to limit your display to and then click SAVE. This will allow you to only display the upcoming event in that particular category. It will update automatically as the date passes and the next event in that category is ready to show. Remember, you can use the Upcoming Events Widget multiple times, so you can also have a call out for your next PTO Meeting, or whatever you desire! Just be sure to SAVE your information!
