Adding an Event

Drupal's calendar is driven by content nodes. To add something to it, create a new event "node" and fill it out. That node is what the calendar will link to. If you select "Promoted to front page" (under "Publishing options") it will also be published to the front page, as a blog post like thing. Note: Please include an end time as well as a start time, even if it's just approximate. Otherwise chaos will ensue as different pieces of software assume different things.

Once you have created an event, it may take an hour or more for it to appear in the web side's sidebar and in the Google Calendar version of our calendar.
