This guide provides instructions and information about Stanford Web Services Jumpstart platform, based on Drupal 7. We're building out the Drupal 8 (D8) platform — the new framework for Stanford Sites in 2020. In place of Jumpstart services, you'll soon see a new User Guide to help set up your website on the D8 platform.
The Stanford Event feature is used to display upcoming events on your website. You can display a few events in a block or see them all on a full page view.
Site owners can add, edit, and delete any event. Editors can only add and edit events. Events can also be imported from events.stanford.edu. Contact Stanford Web Services to set up the Stanford Events Importer.
Before starting, be sure to know the values for each of the fields listed in Stanford event field column.
You have several avenues for finding and editing an event. If you find the event you may see an Edit link which will direct you to the node edit page for that event.
You can either unpublish an event to keep it on the site (just not viewable), or you can completely delete the event. Deleting an event is not reversible.
