If there is a problem with your event, DO NOT resubmit the event, please either access the event in the back end of WorPress ONLY if you are comfortable with that, or let Stefanija know what the issue is. The website administrator will receive notification when you submit your event and can check it for errors as well as add the venue google map.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]


If you are comfortable accessing the event listing AFTER submitting it, and would like to add the map manually yourself, use these images as a guideline and be sure to add the EMBED CODE in the HTML/TEXT view once in the event listing. It will not work if pasted into the VISUAL display area.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]Copy the venue name and full address and paste it into Google Search. Then click on MAPS. Once there, click on SHARE.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]When the SHARE window opens, click on EMBED A MAP, then click on COPY HTML. This is what needs to be placed into the HTML/TEXT area on the event listing. Access that by going to the back end of WordPress i.e., scienceforpeace.ca/wp-admin and clicking on the Event Calendar icon at the bottom of the left side menu bar.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”2439″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”2440″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_separator][vc_column_text]

ONLY those with access rights will see the link to ADD AN EVENT on the calendar. If you are logged in and do not see that link on the calendar page, please contact Stefanija.
