5. Organizing your Hub via the Hub Management center

Hub Management is your solution for achieving maximum organization of the events on your hub.

This especially comes into play when you have multiple hubs located on one event page — in other words, different collections of events grouped by a commonality (i.e. Featured Events, Past Events, etc.)

Let's take it from the top!

How do I get to the Hub Management center?

There are two ways to access Hub Management:

1. Directly on page, by hovering over your Hub element and clicking the Manage icon:


2. Or, via the Layout tree:

  1. Click into the block that houses your hub element
  2. Navigate inside your hub element
  3. Click Event Hub → Manage Events

Next, let's take a peek under the Hub Management hood!

Remind me: How do I add events to a hub?

As we learned in a prior chapter, you're able to quickly add events to your hub via the green Add Event button in the upper-right of the Hub Management center.


Let's check out what else is capable within here!

Filtering Hub events

Filters are a way to program (or automate) your hub to only show events that meet a certain criteria. 

For example: Let's say a Hub's filter is set for Upcoming events only. The moment an event you listed on the hub is over, it will automatically un-list itself from the hub. No further management required!

You're able to filter the events in your hub by the following:

  • Date: You can choose to display any combination of Upcoming, Ongoing, TBD, or Past events.


  • Featured: You can choose to display only Featured events, Non-Featured Events, or all events regardless of Featured status.


  • Distance: Choose to only display events within a specific mile range of a visitor's IP address. Talk about relevant!


  • Page Type: The Page Type filter allows you to display Only Event Pages or Only Hub pages.



When would you use the Hub Pages Only filter? 

A common use case would be a User Groups program where the the program's home page has a main Hub section with various cities (i.e. NYC, Philly, Boston, and DC) listed on it. Each city on the home page Hub clicks out to its own Hub page with events from the city listed on it.

Hubs within hubs! Pretty meta, eh? We'll show you an example later in this article. 

  • Tags: Quick Splash refresher! Tags can be added to event pages in the Settings tab to keep your events organized and indexed in your events dashboard.

Within your hub filters, you can also choose to display events according to their tag:


Note that you're able to use any of these filters in conjunction with one another. There's no limit on the level of specificity when it comes to organizing your Hubs.


Sorting Hub events

In addition to filtering your Hub, you can also sort the events within your Hub by Upcoming First, Closest First, Popular First, Alphabetical, and Date Created.


Maximum number of events


To avoid the Hub's list of events becoming too long, you're able to limit the number of events you'd like to display. This feature can be paired with the "Show More Button" Hub element, which allows for paginated loading of events. 

We'll discuss it more depth in a later chapter!


You'll notice a second tab within Hub Management called "Share." This is where your hub's embed code lives — yup, you can iframe (AKA embed) your hub anywhere on the web, including other Splash pages.

This is another feature we'll discuss a bit later.

Great Use-Cases: A peek behind the curtain

As we mentioned earlier on in the article, the features of the Hub Management center become most powerful when you have multiple Hubs on one page.

Check out an awesome example of a hub page utilizing two separate Hubs, filtered and sorted specifically for Featured Events and Upcoming events:

Now, check out the Hub Management settings of their Featured Hub:

  • Filter: Featured only
  • Sort by: Upcoming First
  • Max Number of Events: 75


And now the check out the Hub Management settings of their Upcoming (Non-featured) Hub:

  • Filter: Non-featured Only
  • Sort by: Upcoming First
  • Max Number of Events: 75


Next, check out an example of a Hub landing page utilizing Page Type and distance to display various regions, each with their own Hub page.

In this example, the person visiting the page is being recommended various User Group pages — Hubs organized by topic — based on their proximity to the hosting cities.

You can see filters and sorting being utilized within their Hub Management center:

Page Type: Only Hub Pages
Tags: !city
Sort By: Closest First
Maximum Number of Events: 6


Next, we will learn how to maximize filters using our navigation element in your Hub
