Enter the information in the "French" tab.

It is in this tab that we will write the text. You will enter the title. It must be different from all other events.

In the "Presentation" field, you can enter a sentence or two. Be very brief! This text will also appear on Facebook if you share the page when done.

In the "Description" field, you can now write all the details of your event. If you have a lot of information to put, just write the first 2 paragraphs, and you will do the following in another step.

Blocks adjustments and additions

The template has been tailor-made for you. But this is only a template, it is to help you create your page. You can adjust it as you wish, and add the number of blocks you want. Like blocks for activity schedule, rates, location with a Google map, partner logos, ect. Do not forget to click on "Send" to save everything.

Final check.

When adding content, regardless of the type of content (images, text, videos, etc.), it is important to check the final result on the site. Check if the event is displayed in the event list, and click on the event to check the "detail" page of your event. Take note that it is better to use good quality images, and make sure you have the rights to use!
