    My Edit Events page is at http://lichfieldlive.co.uk/events/edit-events/

    I've searched and searched and searched and can't find anything that even hints at my issue to start figuring it out.

    I've poured over the settings but can't see anything.

    One thing I have noticed is the documentation tells me there should be capabilities settings section but I don't have one. http://wp-events-plugin.com/documentation/user-capabilities/

    Did you check the settings at Settings > General > User Capabilities

    As I've already said, I do not have that section in my settings.

    sorry misread your post, can you try to deactivate other plugins or revert back to default theme for a possible js/jquery conflict? Also, is this in a buddypress, multisite or normal installation?

    thx

    are you on multisite? If so, then it'll be in your network admin settings (link should be there in the admin bar)

    I'm a seasoned pro at de-activating plugins and themes to troubleshoot ;) No effect...

    It is a multisite and I found the capabilities section, thanks!

    Subscribers (the role attributed to non logged-in users IIRC) have the ability to create new events though: http://screencast.com/t/QtVm3DDaGRm

    Any more ideas?

    Thanks

    @philipjohn, am well aware of that :)

    If you don't want subscribers to create events, you need to uncheck edit_events and delete_events. publish_events allows subscribers to publish the event too

    "If you don't want subscribers to create events" I want the opposite in fact - I want anyone to be able to create events.

    You'll see that subscribers have the ability to add events, which should - I believe - allow non logged-in users to post events but they are isntead told to log in.

    At the moment, I'm using a Gravity Form to allow anyone to post an event but that doesn't allow me to offer the complexity inherent in timings (especially recurring) and choosing locations that the plugin form has built in.

    ok, in that case your screenshot would allow just that, but they would be pending rather than published immediately.

    I'm guessing then that you need to look at Event Submission Forms section in the Settings > General tab of EM. This should be blog-specific even in MS mode. If you enable guest submissions, and assign an owner to be a subscriber, you should get all the permissions in order.

    Hope that helps!

    Hmm... I have anonymous submissions set to Yes and the user set as a subscriber account that isn't used but still no dice.

    Thanks for you help so far - I think I'm going to try making the Gravity Form more intelligent instead!

    or hold on for about a day... I just tested this out myself and you're right, it doesn't work! should have trusted you more given you're a vet at this ;)

    Lol! Purely a veteran at de-activating plugins and themes - everything else is educated guesswork ;)
