Last Updated: Jan 22, 2020
documentation for the dotCMS Content Management System

As event calendars become more populated with many different types of events, event filters make displaying and finding only the desired event type quick and easy. Whether on the front end or the back end of the events calendar, users can search for event types or tagged events with only a few clicks.

On the front end of the events calendar, visitors can choose an event category and filter for the type of event they are looking for. For more information please see the Categories documentation.

The event content type also has a field called Tags that allows users to label each event entry with keywords that front end/back end users can use to label and identify and filter events. For more information, please see the Tag Field and Category Field documentation.

Display detailed information about a particular event

Clicking on an event title will display detailed information about that particular event. Users can filter for similar events by clicking on the tag filters provided in the event detail.
