Creating Event Types

First, log in to the back end of your website {i.e.}

Then, click  Events, and select “Event Types

On the right hand side of the page, you’ll fill in the Name, Slug (the URL friendly version of the name - usually all lowercase and contains only letters, numbers, and hyphens).  

Next, assign a parent term from the dropdown list to create a hierarchy.  (i.e. Music would be a parent term to piano). 

Once finished, click the blue  Add New Event Type button.  Next, navigate to Events and select the event that you wish to add this descriptor to, and then check mark the event type that you’ve just added.  Once you’ve done this, click the blue Publish button. 

You may also add an event type directly from this area by clicking the blue  Add New Event Type link.  Type out the title, and then press the grey Add New Event Type button.
