Prerequisites

This tutorial assumes you are familiar with the following:

Internal and Community Events

Internal events/meetings are those entered by contributors employed by the City. They are not subject to a review process and are published to the calendar right away.

Community events are those submitted by the public, and must be approved before they show up on the site.

Events and Public Meetings

The online calendar items on our site can be broken up into two broad categories: events and public meetings.

Events

There are two event types:

  • Community Events: Parades, fairs, etc
  • Exhibitions: Used for long-running events, such as art exhibitions or special zoological visits, where participants may come at their leisure over an extended period of time.

Public Meetings

There are several types of public meetings:

  • Meeting: Used for meetings unless a more specific meeting type, such as an Aldermanic Meeting type, is provided.
  • Aldermanic General Meeting: General aldermanic meetings.
  • Aldermanic Committee Meeting: Scheduled aldermanic committee meetings.
  • Aldermanic Special Committee Meeting: Special aldermanic committee meetings.

Where Do They Show Up?

Events and meetings show up in several places on the site.

Our Site's Home Page

On the right side of our home page are two tabs: Events & Public meetings. The next four upcoming items in each category will show up here.

Our Site's Event Calendar Page

All upcoming events and meetings can be found on the Event Calendar page: http://stlouis-mo.gov/events/ .

You can also search events by going to the Search Events page in the Event Calendar section.

Your Organization's Event Page

Each organization on the site has its own events folder and page. This page shows all events and meetings sponsored by your organization.

Other Places

Depending on how you tag your events/meetings, they might show up in a number of places, including Neighborhood pages, Ward pages, and landing pages.
