Front-end 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.

Front-end event submission - WordPress Event Calendar
  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.

Important knowledge: If you want to change date format on single event page (frontend of the single event) you need go to WordPress Dashboard > Settings > General > Date Format (and also time).

 

You can adjust what is shown on the end-user event submission form. Except for the event basic information and requirements, you can choose from Event Links, Event Cost, Featured Image, Event Categories, Event Labels, Event Color, Event Tags, Event Location, Event Organizer, Hourly Schedule, Booking Options, and Fees/Taxes Options as well.

Hi. Is it possible to create an add-on to customize this form? For example: I would like to add or change a few titles above the fields or even add an extra field. That would be a very handsome addon.

The only thing stopping me from purchasing the Pro version and some addons is the fact that you cannot add extra fields to the event submission form. Is this something that will be added in the near future?

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"
