Promoting Art in Fredericksburg Virginia and the surrounding area - Calendar of Events
Fredericksburg Arts has a plug in on its calendar that fetches your events and adds them to our calendar automatically every time you create a Facebook event. How easy is that!
No forms, no extra work.
Here how it works . . . we add your name from your Facebook page URL and add it to our settings. Every time you create a Facebook event it will automatically be uploaded into our “Pending” Calendar. We go in, click the appropriate boxes to add them to the particular calendar for your event, hit publish, and you are in.
Like everything with the Internet, however, there are a few “issues”. The first is hyphens. If you have hyphens in your Facebook page URL, it doesn’t work. This is easy to fix . . . go to your Business Facebook page and click on “About” in the navigation row under your Profile Pic. In the column that shows up on the left, click on “Page Info”. Under the info that shows up is “Facebook Web Address”. Move the cursor over that listing and an edit pencil will appear to the right. Click on the pencil and click on the “Change web address” (You may be directed to switch to your person page. Click on “Continue as [your name]” In the “Facebook Web Address” box delete the hyphens from your web address. Click “Check Availability” and “Confirm”. Send us an email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will add you to our Settings and you are ready to go.
Pages with County and Age restrictions also will not be uploaded automatically. To check your setting, go to your business Facebook page and click on the Settings button on the right side in the upper navigation bar under your notification icons. Under the Country Restrictions, make sure that your page is visible to everyone. If it isn’t click the edit link, click the button next to “Hide this Page from viewers in these countries” and leave the box above the button blank and click “Save Changes”.
Under age restrictions, it should say “Page is shown to everyone”. If it doesn’t click on the edit link and click on “Anyone (13+)” Click “Save Changes” and email us at email@example.com and we will add you to our Settings and you are ready to go.
