mojoPortal 201: How to Sell Events in mojoPortal
Written by Carole Bennett Friday, 8 June 2012
mojoPortal provides an extremely effective foundation for a robust website solution. With the addition of plugins, that functionality can be extended even further. The Event Calendar Pro plugin from Joe Audette, the creator of mojoPortal, will give you the ability to add event sales to your mojoPortal-based site.
You’ll find the installation instructions for the Event Calendar Pro on the mojoPortal site; after you’ve completed the installation, just add the Event Calendar Pro as you would any other mojoPortal feature. From there, you’ll want to start with the feature settings:
Once you get there, you’ll want to select the ticket/registration tab:
You’ll want to set your configuration according to your needs, then click the “Save” button.
Now it’s time to create your event. Click the “Add Event” link next to the “Settings” link.
As you can see from the screenshot above, this is the area where you can set all the event details, including price, duration, number of seats, as well as registration window duration.
As an additional bonus, the Event Calendar Pro has an RSS feed that can be used with the built-in Feed Manager to display upcoming events elsewhere on the site.
