[resolved] add new forms to Event Details to display in sidebar (4 posts)

    I've got another support post listed already, but I figured keeping the issues separate would be good. So what I would like to do is add extra meta data forms to the Event Details box on the back-end. The original site I'm rebuilding from included event specific multimedia links in the sidebar and I would like to be able to do the same thing in WordPress. So, having simple forms in the event details that if filled in with a URL would generate a uniform link in the sidebar — is that possible?

    Thanks Zack - it's really helpful when reports are split up to be able to track each one - and it's also much easier for others with the same problem to find a solution.

    You can add an extra metabox to the event-edit page (an event is just a post of 'event' type so post meta etc is completely supported). But you can't add extra fields into the event details meata-box (currently, but I will add in an action that will allow you to do this!).

    What you're suggesting is absolutely possible. Having added an extra metabox (see this example) with the appropriate fields you can then save these multimedia links as post meta. I'd recommend then creating a widget (that only does anything on a single event page) - which takes these saved urls from the post meta and lists them.

    Alternatively you could make use of the 'custom fields' that events do (or can, see the settings) support. 'Custom fields' are just an easy way of storing post meta.

    It sounds like what I need has less to do with the Event Organiser plugin and more to do with adding additional meta data through A) a separate plugin or B) by hand coding. I'm not sure I'm up for creating my own widget, but I've found a few solutions using additional plugins and editing some of the theme .php files, though so far none of the solutions are entirely ideal.
    I appreciate your feedback though. Thanks.
