Remove Required fields / Changing Error message

    Hey you amazing people at Modern Tribe.
    Still having a few issues with a couple changes if you could please help me out…
    how can I remove a required field on the community events submission form so its no longer required to submit an event. I previously found the .php to edit what it said (instead of having “Name of Event”, its now “Your name”) so if the field doesn’t get filled out the error message reads out “Event Title is required”.

    below is my edit;

    So.. my questions are;
    1. How can I remove the required-ness of the “Event Description”
    2. How can I change what the the error message says when the required field(s) aren’t filled out?

    I’ve looked over the forums as im required to do…
    the few different things on it didnt seem to help very much;

    in advance, thanks heaps for your wonderful work & help 🙂
    review coming soon 😉

    Correct Answer

    Thanks for getting in touch! Take a look at this tutorial, which should point you in the right direction. The tutorial will show you how to edit the message that’s displayed when the required fields aren’t included, and will also show you how to edit which fields are marked as required.

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