    Can the Community Events plugin be set up to support BOTH logged-in users and anonymous users?

    pickleshy,
    Thanks for getting in touch! If you allow Anonymous submissions, then logged-in users can still access the Event Submission form also. Try that and let me know if it accomplishes what you’re wanting. Thanks! 🙂

    Perfect. I enabled anonymous submissions and went back to the /add page, and saw the “My events” button right there.

    What I’d like to do is encourage people to log in to add an event, but still allow anonymous users to post if they need to do so. So, I think I’ll customize the plugin to add a prompt when the user is logged out: “Sign in to manage your events, or submit as a guest below.”

    Thanks for the help!
