You can format your events in your newsletter using the following tags. They will be replaced by the actual value from your event when the newsletter is generated.

Note that not all tags are available for every event calendar and some are only available in the pro version.

If you don't see the tag you want included, let us know!

Conditional Tags

Most tags can be used in a conditional statement. For example:

{if_event_cost} ... {/if_event_cost}

One special tag is

{if_end_time} ... {/if_end_time}

which will only show the content if there is an end time specified and the end time is not the same as the start time.
