Form Builder Addon

The add-on works with MEC version 4.2.3 and higher.

The Form Builder is a new add-on for MEC which employs Elementor Page Builder.
It allows you to style the tickets’ booking form however you want. In order to use Form Builder you need to have MEC Pro and Elementor Page Builder installed and activated.

For installation, first, make sure that both MEC and Elementor Page Builder are installed and activated. Then, head over to your WordPress Dashboard > Plugins > Add New and upload, install, and activate the add-on

For the file’s fields, you need to make some adjustments.

1. You can set certain limits for uploading files from MEC Settings > Upload Field. These limits include the size of the file or its format.

2. The size for the file to upload is set by the php.ini file which is the file handling your site’s server. : upload_max_filesize on php.ini file. For more information please contact your host provider.
