Build a URL to display specific information from your event website.

Introduction

In Grenadine event websites, some URLs are automatically generated by the system. However, you can use our URL parameters to generate your own URLs, by using parameters to filter and sort your data. This will allow you to send attendees and participants URLs that have been tailored to show specific information.

Building a Custom Page URL

To find a specific session or person, search for the type of category you wish you view. The categories will be shown in color on the schedule of your event website as shown highlighted in the picture above.

Find the category number you are searching for in the category table in global settings. As you can see the category ID we are searching for is 264.

Going back to your event website type this number in at the end of the URL as follows:

category_ids=264

Now you will only be shown items with that category ID, as shown below. You are able to search for more than one category ID by adding a comma, then any subsequent IDs you wish to search for.

Supported Listing Pages

The following URL slugs can be used to display information:

  • /organizations (lists the organizations such as sponsors, exhibitors and partners)
  • /organizations_by_category (lists the organizations, grouped by categories)
  • /people (lists people, including attendees and speakers)
  • /sessions (lists sessions and poster sessions)

Examples

Example 1: Grouped organizations by categories

To categorize your organizations for the grouping listing, you need to create the appropriate categories in your system and associate organizations with those categories.

Step 1: Create categories

Make sure you have the categories that you need. You can view your categories in the Categories table at /categories/manage. These are categories that you can use to categorize your organizations.

Also, take a note of the category ID and set that aside for later use.

Step 2: Associate categories to organization

Then add the organizations to your event in the organization screen:

Grenadine Event Manager -> Your Event -> Organizations

When adding them, make sure to categorize the companies with the appropriate categories form Step 1. This can be done in the drop-down in this picture:

Step 3: Create an organizations by category page

Next go to the website Pages table:

Grenadine Event Manager -> Your Event -> Website -> Pages

and add a page title that meaningful to you. Example: “Sponsors”

For your custom page, use a URL instead of entering page content manually. For the URL, use:

https://sites.grenadine.co/sites/…/organizations_by_category?categories=180,163,184

For the categories URL parameter, the category IDs are the ones that you took note of in Step 1 above, and the order is respected. You can replace or move the category IDs around as you need.

Finally you will have a page with your organizations grouped by categories.

Step 4: Hide built-in organizations pages (Optional)

If you ever want to remove some of the other built-in Grenadine organizations pages, then uncheck the “show” option and the page will no longer appear. Example:
