To get your event details, open your Event Plan from Google Drive in a separate tab or window Copy and paste the event details.

Highlight the text and select “Copy.”

Return to your Site.

Insert a textbox.

Then, paste the information.

Now all of your information appears on the website.

But because it is all in one text box, you don’t have much control over the layout.

To give yourself more control, add text to different text boxes.

Then, you can move the text boxes around the page.

Adjust the width of each textbox, and shift the text to the left, right, or center.

Next, choose a theme for your website.

Themes are like templates.

They provide pre-set options like colors, font styles, and other design elements.

Choose a theme that works best for your event and site layout.

Next, preview your site.

Google Sites automatically adjusts the layout and formatting to fit on other devices, like phones and tablets.

Preview how your website will look on multiple devices.

Click the X to exit Preview.

Once you’ve added and formatted the details for your event, move on to the next video to create a new page with a map.

Now, it’s your turn: Add text from your event plan into text boxes.

Choose a theme.

And preview for different devices.

Then, move on to the next video to add another page.
