It’s simple to add a recurring event to Folk Calendar. In this guide we show you how.
Add Your Recurring Event to Folk Calendar
Login or Register
You must have an account on folkcalendar.com to add an event
Visit the Add Event page
The Add Event page can be accessed from the header of every page on folkcalendar.com or by cisiting folkcalendar.com/add-event/
Add Event Name and Dates
Add Event Times
Add Recurrence Schedule
Events can repeat Daily, Weekly, Monthly or Annually. The Recurrence editor will allow you to select an appropriate recurrence. For Example
Weekly, every 2 weeks on Monday
Monthly, every 1 month, Second Sunday
Due to technical limitations, some recurrences are difficult to model:
Events that occur twice within a calendar month but don;t follow a weekly pattern (eg 1st and 3rd Sunday) currentl need to be added as two separate events.
It's not currently possible to model events that have a monthly recurrence based on the month end rather than month beginning, eg Second from last Friday. In this case the events have to be added separately and can't currently be added as a recurring event. Last weekday of month IS possible
Add Event Location
Add any additional event details.
You can add additional details about your event including a long description, website and telephone number. If you are cutting and pasting information from another website (eg facebook) or a Word Processor, you should paste into the Text tab at the top right. This will strip out additional hidden formatting that these websites place within the information. Events that have large amounts of hidden formatting will likely be rejected for publication.
Select Categories and Tags, and Submit
Finally: Keep an eye on email and spam folder
You will get an email when your listing goes live. If this doesn't arrive it may be because there was a problem with your listing or we need to clarify some details (usually locations or times). If there is a problem we will usually drop you a quick email and ask for clarification or further. If your event hasn't gone live within 24 hours (usually much sooner) and you haven't heard from us, please check your spam folder. Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo and other similar email services have quite aggressive spam filters these days and it's not uncommon for our emails to end up there. If there's nothing in spam you can drop us a message or contact us through the Folk Calendar Facebook page
