Join Carrie Dils for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding an event submission form, part of WordPress and Genesis DIY: Community Website.
- Now that we have forms capability on our site,…let's enable a way for community members…to submit events via the website.…We'll create a new page…and just title it, "Submit an Event."…If you have some submission guidelines,…you could enter those right here.…Then, we'll go Add Contact Form.…And, in this case, we'll need some fields…related to Events.…
Once you've added in the fields you'd like,…be sure to set your email notifications…and then add the form to your page.…Now, let's add a way for people to access…this submission form.…We'll do that via our menu…and nest it under the Events menu item.…With that, now we've given community members…a way to submit an event.…Now, keep in mind, this won't actually…add an event to your calendar.…That'll be something that you…or your site administrator does.…You'll receive the event submission via email…and then, if you've approved it, you can get…any additional information you need…and then add it as an event.…
