I have a Theatre website that I'm creating in Drupal 8, and I need to create an Event content type. This content type will be displayed on an Events page listing all Events in ascending order from closest date to latest. (I'm pretty sure I can get Views to do this.)
This is how each node should look like when listed on the Events page.
I know I need to create fields for:
- Event Poster
- Event Presenter
- Name of the Event (This would be the Title Field)
- Day(s) of the event
- Time(s) of the event
- Event price(s)
- Link to external Ticketmaster-type website to purchase tickets
The problem I have is that not all events are only set up to be on one day or at one time; some events may be listed like the following (Where there are multiple time listings for the day) or some might be where the event is being held for multiple days and may have different times of when it is being held.
What field type should I use for the datetime field? Is there a special module I should get for this that allows multiple dates to be listed? Do I even need to worry about a special Time field or do I just keep it as a plain text field for the user to just type in the time(s)?
TL;DR: How do I create a date field that allows to list multiple days (maybe times) and then sorting the content type by the days of the event in ascending order?
