Does default content settings still need to appear in front end form

    I have set my default city/country to Bristol/UK. Do these fields still need to be included in the front end template to be caught each time a user submits an event or can I strip them out of the template, the logic being that are always in Bristol/UK so why display this to the user?

    Thanks for any advice on this.

    Correct Answer

    welshartnow,
    Thanks for getting in touch! If you’ve changed your ‘Default Content’ settings in Events->Settings->Default Content, then the Community add-on will honor those settings on the Event Submission form. With that being said, those fields will still need to be on the form in order to be submitted as data with the event. If you want to hide them, you could do so with some CSS by using ‘display:none,’ and the field information will still be submitted. Does that make sense?

    Give that a shot and let me know if you have further questions. Thanks! 🙂
