This week we are discussing just how easy it is to customize the online display of your events in Membee.  It’s as simple as checking a few checkboxes or clicking and dragging sections in the Event Layout and Display Tab.

You can also customize an event layout based on the type of event.  Layouts for your annual golf tournament or dinner can be entirely different than for your networking, education or store / donation events!

To learn how check out the quick video below and/or the images following:

In the screenshot below you can see the Page Layout & Width sections:

  • There are two different "widths" of the event page
    • To use the 600 pixel layout the content area where you want to display your events on your page needs to be at least 620 pixels wide
    • To use the 930 pixel layout (our recommended implementation) the content area where you want to display your events on your page needs to be at least 930 pixels wide

Mobile Friendly Events!

Don’t forget that Membee’s Event widget (and all of Membee’s widgets) are now responsive!

This means that Membee’s widgets simply adjust to the size of the screen the visitor is using. The great thing about having a responsive design is that you maintain everything in one spot – you don’t need to develop or maintain a mobile site or app.

Have a Responsive Site?

Make sure to always double check widget settings in your admin copy of Membee (Login required).

If the responsive design checkbox is not checked the widget will not appear as a responsive design. So it’s always a good idea to go into your widgets (New Member, Events, Directory, eBilling, & Profile) to make sure the box is checked ensuring your members can sail smoothly while on a mobile device!
