Introduction to Geography Based Calendar & Directory
The calendar and directory are key components within our Community Content Engine for local magazine and newspaper publishers and ads tremendous value to readers, advertisers and publishers.
By default, all sites tap into our shared database of events and directory listings so your calendar and directory will show all events and listings created on your site PLUS all events and listings from our database that are within the the zip code and radius (in miles) set at Settings > General > Feeds tab.
You can adjust what's shown in 3-way:
- Adjust your zip code & radius or leverage our advanced Geo Coordinates setting to be more specific
- Limit the business & event categories at Settings > Site Categories. Only events and listings in the selected categories will appear on yours site.
- Only show content posted directly to your site (or network, if you run a network of sites and have our network plan). Email [email protected] to adjust this setting.
You can also export events for use in print, use Content Snippets to cross-promote and cross-link within articles, and much more.
