This page describes how to display meeting data from the WSZF server on your area or region website.
Each area and regional website in the WSZF can have its own meeting list, which will appear under the URL for that area or region but get its data from the root server. (BMLT calls this a “satellite.”) We recommend using crouton – the other satellites have not always kept up with the latest changes to accommodate virtual and hybrid meetings.
To use crouton with WordPress, install the crouton plugin and set the parameters. Then on your meeting list page, include a shortcode [
bmlt_tabs]. The resulting table of meetings will be “responsive,” that is, adjust its format appropriately for a laptop or a smartphone. There are lots of options for crouton, but that’s the basics! See https://bmlt.app/crouton/ for more information; crouton’s settings interface also includes some documentation.
If you have an area or regional website built using something other than WordPress, you can use
croutonjs instead. There are some directions on GitHub at https://github.com/bmlt-enabled/crouton/tree/master/croutonjs, including a sample web page. Another option is to create a one-page WordPress site called
meetings, and link to that from your home page.
Finally, we could have a WordPress page on https://wszf.org for displaying local meetings, and include the service body ID as a parameter of the URL so that the page could be reused by multiple service bodies. However, the URL for this page would include the zone’s URL rather than the local one, so this would probably be best seen as an interim solution until an area gets its own BMLT meetings page.
