Events+ Issues / Questions

1. When I try to edit an Event from the Edit page at https://christiangays.com/edit-event/ I don't have a start or end time for the event so it won't let me publish. What do I need to do to bypass this requirement?

2. Start and End Time boxes and too narrow to fit in the full time.

3. How can I show people what time format to use?

4. How do I remove everything under Publish button - i.e. Add user, user email, attending, Add button

    Hey Mary,

    Hope you are doing great today. :slight_smile:

    1. When I try to edit an Event from the Edit page at https://christiangays.com/edit-event/ I don't have a start or end time for the event so it won't let me publish. What do I need to do to bypass this requirement?

    When you edit an Event, if offers the option to disable start, or end time in your event, you just only have to enable that option, so that you can publish without a start/end time. Doesn't that work for you? To be sure, I just created a new event, and I was able to publish with start/end time disabled.

    2. Start and End Time boxes and too narrow to fit in the full time.

    I'm afraid, I'm not able to understand you fully here? You meant the start/end input boxes are too narrow? If yes, ie how it would display by default. Please advise what I'm missing here.

    3. How can I show people what time format to use?

    When you publish an event, the Events+ plugin by default uses the WordPress time format, configured under Settings > General > Time Zone, and displays events according to that.

    You can enable Local Timezones add-ons, so that the time gets converted automatically to the visitors timezone, when they view your events.

    4. How do I remove everything under Publish button - i.e. Add user, user email, attending, Add button

    When you edit the event, you'll notice the Screen Options section, where you can choose what you want your dash to display, from that un-checking the Event RSVPs option should remove the mentioned section. Wouldn't that work?

    I hope this helps, please advise what I'm missing so that we could help get you sorted asap. Have a nice day. :slight_smile:

    Kind Regards,
    Nithin

    1. You are showing a the backend "Add Event" page. My members who will be posting the events will not have access to the backend. They will need to add and edit from https://christiangays.com/edit-event/

    Here is screenshot again.
    Please note that there is no start or end time box to tick or un-tick.

    2. In same screenshot please notice that there is too much padding so the last number of start time and the last number of end time cannot be seen. Only half is showing.

    3. I am not asking how to set my time zone. I am asking how I convey to my members when they want to enter an event, do they show it as 19:00 or do they show it as 7PM or 7:00 pm - i.e. how do THEY know what to put. When I first entered the time I entered 7:00PM and it wouldn't accept it so I had to try several other formats before I found the correct one. There should be a line of text saying

    "Use 24 hour format - example 19:00 to show 7PM". How do I insert that?

    4. Again, my members will not have access to the back-end. They need to add and edit from https://christiangays.com/edit-event/ so I need to make the front end template usable for people who may only ever use it once. It must be EASY. Please note that I did go into Add Event and I removed the screen options as shown, but it has no effect on the front end edit page that my members will be using, so I need to be able to remove everything under the Publish button.

    Hello Mary,

    I'm sorry for the confusion on our side.

    Please note that there is no start or end time box to tick or un-tick.

    Yes, I can confirm that on my site also. Let me speak with developer why there is this difference in setting time between back-end and front and form and what we can do about that.

    2. In same screenshot please notice that there is too much padding so the last number of start time and the last number of end time cannot be seen. Only half is showing.

    Please try this CSS code:

    #eab-events-fpe-start_time,
    #eab-events-fpe-end_time {width: 70px;}

    You can
    a) add it to the child theme style.css file
    b) use this small plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/simple-custom-css/

    There should be a line of text saying

    "Use 24 hour format - example 19:00 to show 7PM". How do I insert that?

    Please try this small code snippet

    <?php
    
    add_action( 'wp_footer', 'wpmudev_add_infoabouttime' );
    
    function wpmudev_add_infoabouttime() {
    	?>
    <script>
    jQuery('#eab-events-fpe-date_time').before('<p>Use 24 hour format - example 19:00 to show 7PM</p>');
    </script>
    	<?php
    }

    You can add it to functions.php file of your theme or use it as MU plugin http://premium.wpmudev.org/manuals/wpmu-manual-2/using-mu-plugins/

    4. How do I remove everything under Publish button - i.e. Add user, user email, attending, Add button

    Did you manage to fix this already? There is nothing now under Publish button now

    kind regards,
    Kasia
