Thank you for the quick reply -- I played with the settings for "event bookings", and wish that I had found this plugin years ago when I had to hand code (borrowing heavily from others) an application form -- it was painful, given that I am not a programmer.
Thus having begun using WordPress - with all of its great plugins - like yours, am really delighted. However, the types of bookings that I'm wanting to do now are quite simple, and I am thinking of going with a simple "contact forms 7" form with a button link added into the event listing. I would be able to manage the bookings quite simply through e-mail, though not as elegant as your form; but simpler for my needs at the time.
Thus the request -- I'd like to keep a list of 'finished events' (showing a track record of our events for the year), but only have the reservation button available for events that have not yet finished. I thought that a "date conditional" might suffice, but was unable to figure the necessary code from the tutorial (no fault of the tutorial - which is great), just that I'm no programmer, unfortunately. Any thoughts....?
