1. Getting Started with WordPress

 

Januas is a WordPress Theme (Tip: What is WordPress?) designed to manage multiple events.

If you are an event professional that runs more than one event per year, congratulations “ you made the right choice.

Using Januas requires an intermediate knowledge of WordPress. Meaning that you should be confident with the basics of WordPress.

Our theme is made for WordPress.org (as opposed to WordPress.com) this means you need a hosting provider where to activate the theme. If you don’t have a hosting provider, we suggest WPEngine.

If you are not confident with WordPress, we suggest 3 actions:

1. Watch the following Videos: What is WordPress?How to Install WordPressThe Dashboard & Read the handy guides at WPBeginner. Everything you need to know about running a WordPress site is in the web.

As WordPress is a community effort, there is an answer for most of the doubts you may have.

2. Run a test installation with the default theme and give it a whirl. Play with it and get confident with different sections of the Dashboard.

3. Use the WordPress Forums and Docs. Search the Forums for your question, there will probably be an answer.

Back To Top

 

2. Getting Started with Januas

 

We built Januas using the best that WordPress has to offer to serve the purpose of running an event portal.

There are two main areas of Januas you should be confident with:

1 “ The Home Page

2 “ The Single Event Page

These are the true new introductions of Januas to the WordPress environment.

The Home Page displays a Featured Event and a selection of your upcoming/past events. You decide what gs where.

The Single Event Page collects all the information about a specific event. You decide what gs where and what to display for your Event.

But first things first. Let’s activate Januas.

Back To Top

3. Installing Januas

 

To activate Januas please head to Appearance->Themes

At the top of the page click ‘Add New’:

Click Upload:

Upload theme

Browse for the Januas .zip file and upload it

Click on Activate.

If you want more information on installing and activating themes in WordPress, read this article.

4. First Januas Settings

 

Now that you have activated Januas, it is time to set it up according to your needs.

Please head to Appearance->Januas Options (If you can’t see this item under Appearance, try re-installing the theme).

We always suggest to activate the theme on a fresh WordPress Installation with no plugins and no previously populated content).

Let’s have a look at the available options:

Options with sections

Click on Image to enlarge

Back To Top

4.1 Theme Color

Here you can decide the color of Januas. Your new theme comes in 5 different colors. Choose the one that works best with your identity.

Note: We do not offer support on further color customization. You may seek CSS and design skills to choose further customization.

Back To Top

4.2 Home Layout

You can decide whether to list your events horizontally or vertically. The horizontal layout will result in a two column layout, the vertical in a three color one.

We suggest to use the two column format when you have less than 6 events happening/happened. In fact the two column layout is perfect to display 4 or 5 events.

The 3 column layout is perfect for better visual impact and with 6+ events.

Once you have populated the site with your events, try switching between the two and decide what works for you.

You decide which event gs in the home page from the Event Information area.

Back To Top

4.3 Search Layout

Here you can decide how website visitors will be able to filter your events on the search results page.

You can let them filter events by Fixed Time Ranges as in the picture below:

fixed-time-ranges

or you can allow your visitors to enter their preferred time range, as in the screen below:

custom-time-ranges

This pretty much depends on the spacing between your events, as fixed ranges reach maximum a Year time range.

Back To Top

4.4 Home Quick Search

You can decide whether your visitors can browse your events by Event Category:

category - quick search

or by Time Range

time range - quick search

Once again the consideration to make here is whether your events are in intervals greater than a Year as your visitors won’t be able to visualize time ranges greater than ˜Next Year’.

Back To Top

4.5 Footer Left Text

Decide what gs in the left side of the footer. In the demo, it is this section:

Footer Left

Back To Top

4.6 Footer Right Text

As per the above “ this is the Right Section
footer-right

Back To Top

4.7 Dummy Content

Please read this carefully.

By ticking this box you will populate the whole site with dummy content. While this is great if you don’t know where to start, it is non revertible.

Therefore you will need to delete the unnecessary content generated. This can take quite some time.

We suggest to populate with dummy content only if you are not sure about how WordPress works and want just to edit content and pictures.

Note: Populating the site with dummy content ds not exclude reading this guide as you may still need to refer to it to change the populated options.

Back To Top

5. Changing the Site Logo

 

Please Head to Appearance-> Header

From here you can upload the logo of your organization. Note that this is the logo Januas on the demo Home Page.

The logo will appear through the site and on each event. Please do upload an image of exactly the size of 306 � 87 pixels. Altering the logo size will predict the functionality of the top bar.

11. Sessions and Speakers

 

This is another fantastic introduction of Januas Theme. We have developed a custom system to manage sessions and speakers. Sessions can be assigned to Tracks, a visual way to group similar sessions according to topic.

Before we start take a moment to understand how the Session/Speaker/Event Page Display flow works:

1. Create a Schedule page (you need to do this only once)
2. Create an Event
3. Create a Session
4. Create a Speaker

We will take you through the different steps, but it is key you follow the above order to easily add a Schedule to your event.

Back To Top

11.1 Creating a Schedule Page

 

Creating a Schedule Page is something you need to do only once. Please follow these steps:

– Change the Permalink Structure to Post Name (Settings->Permalinks)
– Go to Pages-> Add New
– Title the page Schedule
– Select from the Page Attributes box on the right hand side select ˜Event Schedule’

Template

– Publish the page and you are done!

Back To Top

11.2 Creating an Event

 

Please refer to the section above Creating Your First Event

Back To Top

11.3 Creating a Session

 

Creating a Session is super easy. Just head to Sessions-> Add New “ These are the different sections:

sessions

1. Session Title: Add the title of your Session

2. Session Description: Add here the description of your Session. If you want to add images or media, click on Add Media. You can see an example of a Session with a picture here. You can add a video or whatever pleases you.

Do consider the layout requirements and mobile version before adding large images. We discourage using the Featured Image function on Sessions.

3. Session Details: You can add Time and Date of your Session and most of all, link it to the Event of belonging. If you don’t see any event in the dropdown Event, this is because you have not created any Event yet, refer to the section above Creating Your First Event.

4. Speakers: If this is your fist Session, this box may be empty. Once you have created your first Speaker you will see a list of available Speakers here. Simply tick the box to associate one or more speakers to a specific session.

5. Session Tracks: Tracks identify a common topic area of different sessions. If you want to your attendees to quickly skim through the schedule tracks are very useful.

If for example you want to group all the Business sessions, just create a Business Track and Add it to the Session.

As for Event Categories we suggest to create Tracks for a specific Event in advance. In this way you will be able to quickly assign Tracks to Sessions.

To create Tracks in bulk, head to Sessions-> Tracks

Add the Name of the Track and its Slug.

Save and then click on Edit the newly created Track.

edit track

You will get this screen.

Track Color

Pick a Color for the Track, this will show on the Event Schedule (Box and Extended Schedule) on the Event Page.

6. Locations: Here you can specify the room or venue of a specific session. You can follow the same procedure of Tracks to bulk create Locations, although there is no need to specify a color.

That’s it, you have created your first Session!

Back To Top

11.4 Creating a Speaker

 

Creating Speakers has never been easier. Just head to Speakers-> Add New:

Add Speaker

Here are the different options, explained:

1. Title: here gs the name of the Speaker

2. Description. Here you can add a catchy description about your speakers. You can also add media but bear in mind that the official Speaker picture is managed by the Featured Image dialogue (#4).

This is the picture that will be displayed on the Sessions and in the Speakers Box on the Event Page.

3. Speaker Details: You can add Company, Short Bio, Website Url and Twitter Profile. Leaving one of these inputs blank will not show the corresponding information.

4. Featured Image: This is where you set the Featured Image that will be displayed whenever a Speaker is showed on the website.

Back To Top

11.5 Assigning Speakers to Sessions and Sessions to Events

 

Once you have created Events, Sessions and Speakers, Open a Session and link it to the relevant event. Also pick the speaker(s) of the session. Read the steps above to create them.

Back To Top

12. Best Practices and Tips

 

– We suggest to follow our directions and use the sections as instructed. Using the sections in different ways may result in compromising the layout. We won’t be able to help in that case.

– Install as few Plugins as possible. Januas is a quite complex theme. We custom developed all the different functions.

There are no plugins requirements. The performance of your theme is strictly linked to installing as few plugins as possible and to respecting the section purposes.

– Do backup “ always. Before making any changes do run a backup. We have a long history of customers losing their work because they did not back up.

13. Language Integration

 

If you want to edit the language files we provided, we suggest to use a free software called Pdit. Here is a comprehensive tutorial on how to do it.

The language files are located in /lib/languages “ You will need to save the files here once edited.

14. Event Espresso

 

Januas works great with EventEspresso. EventEspresso is a WordPress plugin which allows you to handle event registration and ticketing on your own site. To use EventEspresso with Januas you will need to purchase it from EventEspresso.com.

Please note that Januas only supports version 4.0 Beta and above. Also note that the above integration will only include the display of the ticket selector shortcode. More advanced integration will require custom development.

Once you have purchased and downloaded EventEspresso, you will need to install and activate it. Here is quick guide on how to install and activate EventEspresso.

After installing Event Espresso, the first thing you need to do is to choose a payment method.

EventEspresso comes with Invoice, Authorize.net AIM, Bank Draft, Check, PayPal Pro, and PayPal Standard payment methods. To choose a payment method go to Dashboard and then click on Event Espresso > Settings > Payment Methods.

Activate the payment method you want to use, and then provide the details required to use that payment method.

EventEspresso Payment Methods

Once you have configured a payment method, the next step is to create your event in the EventEspresso.

Go to the Dashboard and then click on EventEspresso > Events. Click on the Add New Event button to create your event.

Create new event in EventEspresso

Provide your event title, and add the description. Make sure that the event title and description and similar to your event details in Januas.

Adding event title and description in EventEspresso

After that scroll down to Event Tickets & Datetime section. There you need to select your event date and time and then enter ticket information. You can create different types of tickets here by clicking on create ticket button.

Adding Event Tickets and Date time

Once you are satisfied with the event, you can hit the publish button to make it live. EventEspresso will publish your event. On the Event page you will now see shortcode button below the Event Title.

Click on the embed button, this will bring up a popup containing an embed code. Copy this code, as you will need it in the next step. To display the ticket registration on your event, Go to Events > Name of Your Event > Registration, and paste the code you copied earlier paste it in the Registration Script field. Don’t forget to click on the save button.

15 Woocommerce

This tutorial is to set up Woocommerce with Januas. Woocommerce is a powerful plugin to turn your site into an ecommerce platform.

While Woocommerce is not a platform to sell event tickets, we have tweaked it to make it’s product selector a ticket selector.

Bear in mind that if you use Woocommerce as your ticketing option in one of our themes, you won’t get specific event functionality. ‘Products’ will become ‘Tickets’ and everything will be geared towards selling tickets, not products. The add to basket functionality will be dedicated only to selling tickets and selling other products than tickets may be compromised.

Once you set up Woocommerce, you can go ahead and create your ‘Products’. These will be effectively your tickets.

Our ticket selector can sell:

– External Products
– Grouped Products
– Discounted Products
– Variable Products
– Virtual and Downloadable Products

Please refer to Woocommerce documentation to learn more about products.

Once you’ve created your products you will need to place your ticket selector in the Registration Widget.

Now add the shortcode

to the area Registration Embed Code

Once you save, you should be able to see the ticket selector live on your page.

Note: External Products or Grouped products will display a ‘Read More’ Link
