How to build a website

The Events on the hubStroud Calendar require a link to a web page that contains the full details of the event.

This could be a posting on facebook or a picture of a poster/flyer on twitter, but ideally you'll have a website.

If you don’t currently have a website there are a few easy ways of setting one up for free (you'll have to include the name of the provider in your site name or 'url', e.g. www.yourname.wordpress.com. Alternatively, you can pay and come up with a unique name, to use www.yourname.com as your web address). These sites offer layout designs, and you provide the content - inserting text (and images) into particular forms to create pages.

These services are fairly easy to use - if you are competent using word processing programmes you should be able to get the hang of it fairly easily. Contact Us if you need some help or advice.

If you are a charity or not for profit group, BT have a free website service that may help.
