I’m trying to customize the Events Calendar plugin for a client project. I’m using the block editor as default editor on the site and would also like to use it at the Events Calendar. However, I want a custom template to be shown in the frontend with some selected data I want the site administrators to configure in the backend.
I noticed that when I switch to the block editor for the events, I’m unable to edit any event data somewhere else than in the blocks you provide. Using the classic editor, the additional event data are stored in custom fields, while at the block editor, everything sits inside the blocks.
I want to be able to configure the event data (date/time, venue, organizer…) outside of the actual content area of an event. Right now, I (or later the client) would have to create the according blocks and add the event data but then have to remove it from the content again, as I don’t want it to be shown with the blocks on the single event page.
Now my question is: is there any setting that would allow the event data to be edited in custom fields (like for example at the Yoast plugin at the bottom of the editor), while I can use a custom template and have the event content actually be used purely for the content? I searched through the knowledgebase and documentation provided, but I couldn’t find any answer to this.
