Events feed module

  Note that this page refers to home page templates prior to the 2019 university rebrand. New websites will use the rebranded style. If you'd like to update your existing home page template to the rebranded template, contact us.


An events feed module automatically pulls events related to a particular faculty/department/category that have been published to the university's event calendar (events.uoit.ca) and adds them to your home page. 

To submit an event to the calendar, fill out the Event Submission form. If an event category for your department or website does not already exist, request a new category so that any events related to your department or website can be tagged with this category when the event is submitted. Event submissions are reviewed by the Communications and Marketing department. Contact us for any inquiries relating to Event Calendar submissions.

  6. Enter the module heading in the Module heading field. 
  7. Select the module width for large screen sizes (the default module width for medium and small screen sizes is full width). For each screen size, ensure that the widths for any additional modules before/following this module add up to fill the grid of thirds. 
  8. You can reorder modules by clicking on the navy upwards/downwards arrows for each module. Delete a module by clicking on the red minus icon.image reorder
