Eventsquid gives you a balance between customizability and templated design. While design options may be limited compared to a custom-built website, our structured site styles require zero programming/design experience and allow you to launch your event in a days rather than months.
Take a look below at some of the key features in the WEBSITE section of the Event Builder.
LOGO & BANNER
By default, your organization logo will serve as your event specific logo. If you haven't uploaded your organization logo, follow these steps:
- Access your Event Dashboard
- Click the Manage Organization tab
- Select Organization Logo
The event logo can be different than the organization logo if you wish (the organization logo displays in the upper left margin of the page).
When uploading a new logo, try to make the graphic as close to 200x200 pixels as possible.
Just below the logo upload, you can either upload your own custom banner or choose one of our stock options. The ideal size for a banner image is 970 wide x 330 pixels.
After uploading your banner image, scroll over the bottom dashed border surrounding the image. Not only can you move the image around within the dashed border for framing, but you can expand/contract the allowable height of the banner image by clicking and dragging the bottom dashed border surrounding the image.
You'll see at the top of this section that you can select between two core website layouts:
- Classic Design
- Modern Design
The template can be chosen and re-chosen at any point during the event. Event after you launch, you are able to switch the web template - to aid this process, we allow you to PREVIEW a template before making the transition.
Each design have a different way of styling the content that you publish to your website. Perhaps the most noteworthy difference between these two templates is the way in which registration buttons are presented on the landing page, when you are using Custom Profiles (click HERE to read about the Optional Profile Button feature, which allows you to generate a unique button for each profile you are using).
Take a look at the two screenshots below. On the left, you'll see how the CLASSIC TEMPLATE displays profile buttons. They are all broken out within the main menu.
On the right, you'll see how the MODERN TEMPLATE displays profile buttons within a fly-out panel, that is accessed after a registrant clicks the button to REGISTER.
Additionally, the CLASSIC TEMPLATE provides you with a Central Registration Button Panel, which displays all custom profile buttons separately, in a panel on the home screen of your event:
This panel (as well the left-side button column) can also be hidden/collapsed using the Display Options tool within the WEBSITE section of the Event Builder.
Take a look below the site layout selector, within the DISPLAY OPTIONS tool (still inside the WEBSITE Builder). Within each section, you will find more detailed options for customizing the layout of your event website.
Click the EVENT WEBSITE - CONTENT PANELS section below. When expanded, you will see numerous options to hide certain elements/panels on your event website according to your preferences:
Take a look around the other sections in the Display Options tool to get comfortable with what is available to you.
The Background Image/gradient that you designate in the Event Builder can be set to display only behind the registration form or behind both the registration form and the event website itself. Our system has a small collection of stock background images that you can choose from, or you can upload your own (recommended 1250x1000 pixels):
To let the background image display behind your event landing page, check the box at the bottom.
We offer the ability to embed either a YouTube or Vimeo-hosted video on your event landing page. Make sure you extract the right code for your video.
Although only a single video can be published on the landing page, the Custom Pages tool (within the Website Builder) also gives you the ability to embed YouTube and/or Vimeo-hosted videos on those pages.
