How can I use Happening?


Happening is a feature that we added to the system with which you can show your own content in the RSS templates or in tickertape. This way you can show news items that you have created yourself without needing a RSS feed. When connecting Happening to the RSS template, it automatically displays the content you filled in into the Happening. For more information about showing Happening in tickertape, click here.


1. Go to [Happening] via [Media] in the left menu.
2. Press [Create] in the right corner to create a new Happening. For editing an existing one, click on the name of the existing Happening.

3. Fill in a name for your Happening where you can recognize it by (this name is not visible on screen, this is only for you).
4. Create a message for your Happening. Fill in a Title, Text and Image (optional). NB: You can also edit a message by clicking on the pencil icon to the right of the message.
5. Select [Send message]. The message is now saved in your Happening. You can create as many messages as you want and every time you want a new message to appear on screen, you can add a new message and it will automatically be detected by the RSS template.
