Facebook & Events + & Meetup.com

We have Events +, also a Facebook page that is private and a Meetup.com account.

What would be the best way to make them all work with one post? From looking it over, posting to meetup, then it sending to the website with Events + and then that sending to Facebook seems it would work?

Is it possible to have the website send to meetup.com? That way it is sending out to others from the one resource?

What would be recommended so that we get maps, and all other information on all web resources?

    Hi Louis,

    Events+ only has an option to import Meetup and Facebook events, I'm afraid that there's no option to export them or to create events on either of them based on the event created in WordPress.

    I'm not sure if there's a possible workaround for Meetup.com but Facebook has disabled exporting posts as events from their API, sometime last year I believe.
    So I'm afraid that this kind of setup would require event created in facebook and then exported to other places, if Meetup.com allows it.

    If you need to customize this then you can post a job in our job board where you can hire a developer to assist further:
    Please note that, no WPMU official staff members are allowed to work in the job board.

    Thank you for the reply!

    So I understand that doing it so that it is automated as 'Meetup -> Events + -> Facebook' would not work? In that the Events + would use WPMU for the middle man to pick up the event from Meetup and then replicate it to Facebook?

    Hey there Louis,

    hope you're doing good and don't mind me chim in here! :slight_smile:

    That's true, the "Meetup -> Events+" part if possible, but the "Events+ -> Facebook" isn't, and as stated before by my colleague Predrag, this would require some custom development.

    You could also check the "If This Than That" approach, but again, I don't know if it provides a "create FB event" action. https://ifttt.com/wordpress

    Warm regards,

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.
