How to Create an Event in the Calendar

Anyone can view the Calendar by clicking on the left-most page link, called “ Calendar”, which appears immediately below the site title/strap-line.

To include a new event in the Calendar you must have a valid logon to To get one, either email me at my personal email or apply via the form on Network For Men

To logon: you will see the logon link near the bottom on the right under “META”.

Having logged-on, just click on “ Calendar” to bring up the Calendar, then clicking on a day will allow you to create a new event, and to edit or delete you own events. You may find this easiest in month-to-view.

Please use the colour coding which is illustrated by the dummy events I have entered under 2nd – 7th January 2017. These are,

  • Pale Blue: Parliament, including Welsh Assembly and Scottish Parliament
  • Green: Local Government
  • Yellow-orange: Universities, schools, teaching, students, NUS
  • Pink: Media, news outlets, journalism
  • Deep Blue: Feminist organisations & campaigns
  • Red: Men’s events ( conferences, actions, meetings, social events)

You are likely to be given permissions only to create/edit/delete your own events, but not to edit/delete anyone else’s.

For Authors/Editors of Wiki Pages

This is a Wiki, not a blog. This means that other people beside myself can contribute.

However, addition of pages and/or editing rights are restricted, for obvious reasons. If you wish to contribute in this way please apply via the form on Network For Men or use my personal email for those who know it.

Please do not add or edit either Posts or ordinary Pages (except for adding events to the Calendar, for which see How to Include or Edit an Event in the Calendar). Posts will be used for meta purposes only.

Please add or edit only Wiki Pages. You will find a menu item in the Dashboard for creating new Wiki Pages. Alternatively just link to a non-existent Wiki Page, then ‘view’ and click on the resulting (red) link.

Links to other Wiki Pages are created using the button for that purpose on the toolbar (second from right). Ordinary Pages/Posts do not have this facility.

When reading, Wiki links appear black but underlined. (I may change this unusual colour convention when I figure out how).

If a Wiki link does not exist it appears red. Clicking on a red link allows you to create the Wiki Page.

Links to ordinary Pages/Posts or external web links are done in the same way as any WordPress page/post, i.e., using the URL. When reading, links made via the URL appear blue and underlined.

Please end any new Wiki Page with an appropriate set of Wiki Page links, as illustrated by the existing Pages.
