Every event has to be assigned to one or max. two categories. Categories are important to make your event visble and findable.
My event belongs to a non-existing category - what should I do?
Choose a category which is close to your desired category
It is important to add pictures to your events to make it more visible. Please only use pictures you are allowed to use for event promotion - and add copyright information.
Which size do my pictures have to be?
Large-sized pictures slow websites down. That's why we limit the picture size for events to 120kb per picture. This is absolutly sufficient for the representation of your event.
This pictures of my event don't show up. What should I do?
By uploading pictures please make sure you activate the button "publish public". If you don't acitivate this button your pictures won't be transferred to our data partners.
If you upload a picture to your event, you can connect that picture to film-material.
The picture will get a player-link (on the corresponding partner-pages in the CultureBase-Network), which will allower the users to play the video.
This only works if the video has been added to our film-database, Film7. This is explained iin our Videotutorial zum Filmupload (german).
When the movie has been uploaded, please remember the film-id. To connect the picture and the video, do the following:
First, you open your event in stage6 and > laden ein Bild hoch , or choose a picture you already uploaded (go to the banner „media“ by clicking on the picture.
So the Link should look like this: https://cb-player.de/12345
After saving the entery, your event-picture should show an icon, signaling it is connected to the video.
How can I make my event more visible?
Try to enter as much information is possible. A good description with a programm or press releases.
Pictures are very important to promote your event – in calenders your event will stand out much more with a picture – but don't forget the copyrights.
