Help:Adding an event

We're really keen to have folk add events to the wiki as and when they are planned, so here are a few guidelines to get you going.

  • Firstly, you'll want to go to the Events page and add a link to your event. Load up the page and click the edit tab at the top of the page.
  • Add your link with the following style at the correct place in the events list. Order them by the date of the event, not the date you added the page.
*dd/mm/yyyy - [[Event title]]
  • Please get the formatting right as it makes our lives easier and makes the site look way better.
  • We suggest that if the event reoccurs annually you put the year on, or make it distinctive from next years event
e.g Mountain Festival 2006 or 2nd Mountain Festival
  • Once you've added the text save the page and then click the link you just made.
  • Once the editing form has loaded you can add your text. There are no real constraints to the formatting - just try to keep it tidy. If you want some tips on making your page look good see Help:Basic formatting
  • Remember to include:
    • Dates
    • Location
    • Times
    • Contact info
  • If you want to add some pictures, feel free to do so.
  • Hit preview to see what it's going to look like and if you're happy, hit save.
  • That's really all there is to it although you should know that events do not show up on the Main Page until it has been approved by one of the staff and until the date is drawing near.

If you have a series of events follow the advice below:

If you have a series of events for which the information is pretty much the same, but the date, venue, etc change, you can create a single "master" page with all the information on for example -

 [[The Climbing Walls Winter Bouldering League 2006/07]]

You can then change the way this looks on the events page to reflect the different dates or venues like so

[[The Climbing Walls Winter Bouldering League 2006/07 | The Climbing Walls Winter Bouldering League - Comp 1]]

People clicking on the link for The Climbing Walls Winter Bouldering League - Comp 1 will be directed to the The Climbing Walls Winter Bouldering League 2006/07 master page.
