    TIP: A common layout is to have Events in one column on a home page and News in another column, side-by-side. For a 2 column layout for News and Events - choose the Column Listing option. The panel must be placed in a column.


    TIP: If you are adding a listing to a side panel make sure to select the correct listing, or you may find that your listing shows "No upcoming events."
