How to add a new show to the website
Before you start adding a show, you'll need…
- A image of the show poster or banner, preferably a JPG that is between 1000 and 1500 pixels wide. The image that appears on Home Page should be horizontal, but you can put vertical images on the show details page. There's no need to create large and small versions of images, Squarespace will look after this.
- The text for the show details page. This should include writer, director etc… running time and dates.
- The shows Event ID from Seat Advisor. You'll use this to create the Book Tickets button. You can get this from the show's URL in Seat Advisor.
Step 1: Create a DETAILS page for the show
Create a new page for the show in the correct location. If it's a 2016 show, you'll add a page to the 'Season 2015 & 2016' folder.
If it's a 2017 show, add a page to the 'Season 2017' folder (click the images below to enlarge).
How to create the Seat Advisor URL
The Seat Advisor URL for the Book Tickets button should look like the one below. The EventID at the end of the URL needs to be correct for the show you're adding…
Step 2: Add the Show Image to a Gallery
Images for ALL shows are stored in a Gallery called ALL THE SHOWS. Main Stage and Late Show images are all together in the same place, we'll use the magic of Categories and Tags to classify these later. You'll find this gallery in the list of pages towards the bottom of the NOT LINKED section of the Squarespace admin page.
Quick Tip: the order of images in the gallery determines their order on the site's pages. If you want to re-arrange the shows in the CURRENT SHOWS panel on the Homepage, just click and drag the images in the ALL THE SHOWS gallery until they are in the correct order.
