Linking, Image Sizes, Keywords & Event Details

 

Linking An Event

If you have a "Main Listing" page you can link your Event(s) using the "Associate with a Listing" field.  This linking can only be linked within the main account you are logged in with, you can not cross-link to another user account.  To have the event show under your main listing account, just start typing the main listing title name and it will show up, select the name click save and it is now linked to your main listing account for everyone to visit.   

Image Sizes for Event

To make your Event look good so people will want to click on it and read it, it is important to get all images the right size so they show correctly.

All the sizes are shown in the event area at the bottom of each image type.  For an Author, the size is: 120 x 120px, for photo gallery 1024 x 768px and for cover image 1920 x 480px.  If you want to add more photos to the text area you can do this using the same size as the photo gallery.
