Formating views promoted to front page
The best settings to output a view of recent events as a block promoted to the front page:
-style: html list.
-row style: fields.
-filters: node type= event.
-fields: node:Nid (excluded from display), node:title (ticking output this field as a link and using a link path of “node/[nid]”. These settings allow to output the title wrapped in a hyperlink to the node id, make sure that Node: Nid comes *before* Node: Title, as they are order dependent. (the order of the fields has to be properly arranged).
I chose to add a display of type block, and after saving it, from site building > blocks I configured the block to show on only the listed pages (<front>).
