Getting Started With Your Event Website

Your public website showcases all the information about the event, plus adds a place where attendees can build their personalized agenda.  We also made it easy to customize it by adding branding (please view Branding article) and custom pages.  

The event will be viewable on the website search page (www2.eventsxd.com) once it is published, but you can use the link under Settings (see below) to view it before it is published.

The website will include event dates and description, social sharing icons (based on the Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn information provided on the Overview screen) map to the event location, email, Speakers, Sessions, Sponsors and any custom pages.  Please note, any session or event resources will only be available in the app and cannot be accessed through your site.

Attendees can view the event (via the link you share or by searching on www2.eventsxd.com) and build their personalized agenda for the app.  When they click the star icon to add an item to their agenda, they will be prompted to login or create a user id.  This will be the same id they use to access your event from the app.  

Note:  If you create an event and then want to later change the event name (example: you create a test event), the URL will not change to the new event name.  If you do create a "test" event and then want it to become your actual event name, we recommend creating a new event in the Admin Portal so the URL has the correct event name. 

To view and customize the website, select 'Website' from the left navigation menu.

To Edit Site, Click On Settings:

  1. Event URL
  • Use this link to view the website
  • You can share this link with attendees (or they can search for the event on www2.eventsxd.com once your event is published)
  • Event URL cannot be changed/edited

Note:  If you create an event and then want to later change the event name (example: you create a test event), the URL will not change to the new event name.  If you do create a "test" event and then want it to become your actual event name, we recommend creating a new event in the Admin Portal so the URL has the correct event name. 

    2.  Contact Email (required)

  • Fill in the appropriate email address for attendee contact. Your attendees will be able to send questions through email from the website. If you do not designate an address, it will be sent to all the Event Admins listed under "Settings".

    3.  Contact Phone (optional)

  • Fill in the appropriate phone number for attendee contact.  The phone number will be listed on the event home page.

    4.  Website Name (required)

  • Provide a 10 character website name for the event.  

 

Note:  As the site is updated, it can take up to 15 minutes for changes to appear and you may have to reload the page. Or clear your browser history and changes will appear immediately. 

Add custom pages to the website to provide additional information, such as travel, hotel, etc for your attendees.

To Add Custom Pages:

  1. Select 'Custom Pages' tab
  2. Select 'Add Custom Page'
  3. Enter the data for each page
  • Title
  • Content (HTML may be added)
  • Choose the sort order (will be sorted after the standard pages)

    4. Click 'Save'

Click the URL button to view this single page as you edit. Note:  As the site is updated, it can take up to 15 minutes for changes to appear and you may have to reload the page.  Or clear your browser history and changes will appear immediately.
