Content type

To display the content of your events, select the "Yapla Events" module. Please note that you must have events in you want Yapla to show them in the newsletter.
 

Note: Only upcoming events are available in this module, current and past events will not be available.

 

Display

If the application allows you to save a lot of time by avoiding copying and pasting texts or images and redoing the formatting, you still have to choose how to display the content. You can:
  • Give a title to the zone (not mandatory).
  • Define the display mode (Featured event, two columns with intro or with thumbnail).

  • Define "how far back" Yapla goes to search for events, and whether the selection is restricted to certain categories
  • Define the display order
  • And finally the language of the content retrieved

Once you have selected your choices, Yapla integrates all the corresponding content and you can choose which events to display specifically from the available events:

  • 1 only for featured event ;
  • 1 or more for two columns;

Add a call-to-action button

Your events are now automatically displayed in the newsletter, in order to allow your readers to go to the event on your website and sign up, it is important to create an action button. 

⚠️‼️ It is important to note that the action button directs to a single event page, so you need to have an event page on Yapla with the mosaic view.‼️⚠️

Here are the steps to create the action button under your events in the newsletter: 

  1. Use your event page (mosaic view) or create an Event page with all your events. You can hide this page by checking : "Do not display this page in the menu of your website"

    To learn more about this point, please consult the following article: Event Section

  2. Go to your event page on your website and click on the detail button of one of your events.
    In this example, we will use this page: https://demo.s1.yapla.com/en/newsletters-event

  3. Copy the url of the detail page of your event: https://demo.s1.yapla.com/en/newsletters-event/detail/the-2021-montreal-golf-bicycle-classic/10585
  4. Paste the url of the detail page of your event in : Event Application > Settings > Settings
