This website is a prototype for an idea that I have been working on for ten years! It is continually changing and I hope to make this the main site for anyone that wants to find something in Topeka to use.
It is being built with those who live in Topeka and the surrounding area but not limited to them.
There are 4 sections to this website.
- The Topeka Newsletter is the first part. It is going through some major overhaul since most of the information can now be found in a better organized manner on the website. This is free for any locally owned business to use to promote their business.
- The Community Calendar is actually the most important part of this website, right now. Each community should be informed on what is going on. This doesn't just mean the bar scene. When I say informed, I mean fundraisers, sports, daily food and drink specials, sales, entertainment, recreation and anything else going on. This calendar tries to include anything that the public is invited to. There is no charge to include your events. We enter all the events so it saves business owners time. They just need to send us the information and we will take it from there.
- Everything Topeka is a plethora of information compiled in a map based program. Here you can search and find different venues in different categories. You can pick one or all categories to search. This search will not find information that is not on the map though so you will need to use the website search function also. It is free to be listed with a simple profile and an affordable way to enhance your listing.
- Everything Else is more businesses that are not listed in the Map feature. There is a guide page that actually will lead you in the right direction. http://everythingtopeka.com/everything-topeka/all-categories It is free to be listed with a simple profile and an affordable way to enhance your listing.
We have 2 different search bars. We use a program called Hot Spot and it does not integrate with the rest of the website at this time. So you will need to use both places if you can't find what you are looking for. Search Articles option will search everything but the maps. It even includes the calendar.
