We understand that part of the value of putting event information into UBCevents is being able to use it in promoting your group and events in whatever way you feel is right for getting the word out!
Currently, we provide three tools which you can integrate into your website with event listings from events in your calendar in UBCevents. These are:
- a code snippet for a list of events
- a code snippet for a calendar display of events
- an RSS feed
Depending on the tool you use to manage/maintain your website, and what you or your team members are comfortable with technically, one of these options may be better for you than the others.
To aid in the incorporation of our data into your website we have developed an RSS generator that can create code that’s ready to be added to a website.
Please download and read through our RSS Guide (PDF | 118KB). It provides technical information on how to work with each option to have it fit into the rest of your website.
The UBCevents team is also always available to help you out in making a decision or implementing this on your website. Feel free to get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Dr Akhtar began by exclaiming that bugs are sustainable, nutritious and delicious! I […]
