Second Event Submission Form

    Is it possible to have 2 event submit forms on one site? (use submit form as template and make enhanced version to show to some users) One would be for free events and the other for member (paid) events.

    Hi John,

    That’s not currently possible as a standard setting or anything of that order: we’d be open to any feature requests you might post along these lines but I wonder if alternatively you could customize Community Events and its templates to add extra fields, etc, but only expose them if a specific criteria is met (such as a URL query like details=extra), such that the standard form appears when a customer visits:

    example.com/events/community/add

    And additional fields are exposed when they follow a link to:

    example.com/events/community/add?details=extra

    A simple test like this would help determine if that parameter is set:

    if ( isset( $_GET['details'] ) && 'extra' === $_GET['details'] ) { /* ... */ }

    You’d also need to build in a handler to save the extra data, but of course that would be true even if you had a truly separate form. Does that help at all?
