Stanford Events Series module

Do you have a collection of ongoing related events? Try the Event Series module to collect events onto a single page and display upcoming and past events.

Stanford Event Series joined Stanford Sites during the Summer 2016 Updates. Previously it was only available to our Jumpstart clients, but high demand for this functionality on Stanford Sites, combined with our commitment to contributing back to the greater community brought this module to sites created on Stanford Sites.

Stanford Event Series requires the Stanford Events module. It uses the Context module to place event blocks on the event series nodes to display upcoming and past events. You can provide details and background information about the event series, such as the topics covered, speakers to expect, when the events are usually held (e.g. every third Thursday of the month), and other helpful information that applies to all of the events hosted in that series (like if there will be donuts provided at every event. Everyone loves donuts.)

Add Stanford Event Series to your site

  1. Log into your Stanford Sites site.
