Frontend Event Submission

You can select a static page for Event List and Add List page using this option. It is similar to the main WordPress settings for Homepage and Post page. The difference is that you should put a specified shortcode (below the “select” option) into whatever page that you want.

Therefore, from the first drop-down menu you can choose your static page to show the events created by your users. The second drop-down menu is used to set the page for add/edit events by your users.

Note: You can also copy the shortcode written in front of each option and then place it in the page that you want to set as your static event list page or add/edit page.

  1. Enable event submission by guest users: by selecting this option, you let anyone (even non-logged in users) submit to events.
  2. Enable mandatory email and name for guest user: by selecting this option, a box would appear which asks for  name and email from the non-logged in users.

Hi there, this is not working for our site: https://www.freu-raum.at/veranstaltung-erstellen/ After submission nothing happens. The event is not visible at the dashboard. Alltough Enable mandatory email and name for guest user is activated, it's not active. And Recapcha ist not working... "Fehlerhinweis für Inhaber der Website: Schlüsseltyp ungültig"
