Organizational units are responsible for writing and posting their event listings/news items to the GC website. ONLY events held at the GC are permitted to be posted.
Please allow 2-3 business days for approval of your event/news submissions.
Submission of events/news must adhere to GC standards. Please refer to the Kentico/CMS resources page.
To attend training in the Kentico CMS system, check our Kentico Training page.
When writing your title, make sure it can stand alone and people will get an understanding of what the news or event is, if only the title is displayed. Keep event titles to a maximum of xx characters (check with Piotr). Some versions of the calendar will display only the title without the description.
Put the most important information near the top, and concentrate on why people will want to come to your event or why people should care about this news. Most people will skim and scan the text, so use clear headings and break up text with bulleted lists and short chunks of content.
If you are adding an image to your event, make sure you have all of the rights and permissions to use the image. Images pulled from Google images or from news sources should not be used unless you have explicit written permission. All images should be 670 pixels wide by 300 pixels tall, high resolution with clear focus. Images must always have alt text.
Avoid uploading banners containing hardcoded information about your news item or event. Instead, upload a photograph accompanied by a short/long description and fill out all the other relevant fields (start date, website, registration deadlines, etc). This will allow people who use screen readers or other devices to browse the web, to access your content without any problems.
If you’re submitting news or events with a description in a language other than English, make sure to accompany it with the appropriate English translation.
