    I've got the plug in installed and everything and from my knowledge its working on its default setting.

    Now basically what i need to know is how am i able to get registered or guest users of my site that want to post an event on my site?
    And I can edit, approve or decline it?
    Is this even possible with Events Manager? or is there something else out there?
    Completely lost on this thing cant get a grasp of it all help is greatly appreciated.

    thanks

    Hi,

    You can do that by going to the options page at Settings > General > Event Submission Forms > Allow anonymous event submissions?-yes and assign a Guest Default User

    to approve or decline events, you can unchecked user capabilities publish_events at Settings > General > User Capabilities then you can use shortcode [event_form] to your page

    Hi thanks for your help I've done that however the "guest default user" only has "admin" in the drop down box.
    And i cant assign a guest default user other than the admin, is there something else im missing?

    Thanks
    John

    you can create a dummy user at wp > user which has a subscriber role and assign that in Guest Default User.

    Any references on how to "use shortcode[event_form] to your page?

    I would like to have a "Event Submission" button so people can submit their own event that is modified by me. I followed the above instructions of:

    You can do that by going to the options page at Settings > General > Event Submission Forms > Allow anonymous event submissions?-yes and assign a Guest Default User

    to approve or decline events, you can unchecked user capabilities publish_events at Settings > General > User Capabilities

    basically, you just need to paste this shortcode to your page [event_form] then if you allow guest to submit events use the option at Settings > General > Event Submission Forms > Allow anonymous event submissions?-yes

    If you unchecked user capabilities publish_events, events will not the publish without the approval of the admin and for notification when a new event was submitted you can set that using the options page at Settings > Emails > Event Email Templates > Event Submitted then fill in Administrator Email.
