Adding an Event

When you go to the editor that you will use to enter events (JCE Editor), it is easy to feel overwhelmed because there are a lot of buttons on the screen.

Don't Panic

For the most part, these buttons are there to be used by those who wish to use them and to be ignored by those who choose to ignore them.  If you wish to format your event in a more fancy way, you certainly can.  Either use the Help button at the top of the group of buttons (the blue question mark) or look at the button reference at the end of this page.

Uploading Flyers: If you want to upload a flyer to use in your event, you will need to understand a bit more.  In your Event text, type in something like "Click here to see flyer".  Then go back and highlight it and then press the Insert/Edit file button (this one ==> filemanager).

Once you have pressed this button, you will get this screen:


Above the right hand pane, you will see this icon: upload (to the left of the help button).  This is the upload button.  When you press this, you get another window like this:


If you press the 'Add' button, you will get a dialog box that will allow you to navigate around your computer to locate the flyer you wish to upload it and then do so.  Then, in the original window shown above, you'll be able to choose the newly uploaded flyer from the list and then insert it into your event text.  (You'll be asked if you want to substitute the file name for the text, but you'll probably want to keep your "Click here for flyer" text.)

Important note:  If you want to publicize your event well, you'll want to use a PDF (Adobe Acrobat document).  This is -- by far -- the most widely used format for document reading and can be read by virtually anyone visiting the Region 2 website (regardless of whether they're using a Windows, Mac or Linux operating system).

If you do not have a PDF writer, there is a free one available for public use.  Click here to download "CutePDF"*.  This software, once installed, works as just another printer -- only instead of printing to your printer, it 'prints' to a PDF file.  (*Region 2 neither endorses nor is affiliated with CutePDF, but provides this information as a service to its members.)

Below, you will find a reference on all of the other buttons (some of these are NOT on the Region 2 website) available to your when adding your event.  Good luck!
