Add a New Show

WordPress ( GigPress ) - These Tutorials require that your WordPress installation has the "Gigpress" plugin

Step #1

Log in to your WordPress dashboard http://yourdomainame.com/wp-admin

Step #2

Once logged in, select “Gigpress > Add a Show” from the left-hand side bar

Step #3

Choose the “Date and Time” for your gig using the drop-down menus available at the top of the page

Checking the box for “This is a Multi-day event” will allow you to set and “End Date” for your gig

Step #4

Select an “Artist” for the gig. Click on the associated drop down and choose from the options OR select “Add a New Artist” which will give you an additional field to create a new one

(OPTIONAL) Step #5

Enter the Name of the Artist or Gig in the new field “Artist Name”

Whenever you “Add a New Artist” that name goes into your Artist database and will be available to you from the drop down menu in the future. You can also alter information about Artists that will update all of your postings involving that Artist.

Step #6

Select a “Venue” for the gig. Click on the associated drop down and choose from the options OR select “Add a New Venue” which will give you a series of additional fields for the venue’s information

(OPTIONAL) Step #7

When Adding a Venue, you must at least add the required information for that Venue, which is the “Name” and the “City”, but you may fill out as much information as you would like. More information for your visitors is always a plus in our opinion!

Just like Adding an Artist, whenever you “Add a New Venue” that name goes into your Venue database and will be available to you from the drop down menu in the future. You can also alter, add to, or remove information about Venus that will update all of your postings involving that Venue.

(OPTIONAL) Step #8

All other fields for the gig you wish to add are optional! Feel free to add any of the remaining information you would like or deem necessary.

Step #9

When you have filled out All of the Required information and anything else you may wish to add, Press the “Add Show” button at the bottom of the page.

Congratulations! You have just Added a Show to your Gigpress calendar!
