    Hello,
    First of all, congratulations for this great plug-in. :)

    I have a question, Is there any way to allow anyone to submit an event through a form for approval by an admin?

    After looking into it we have been using gravity forms. They should get you there in style.

    Hi Shane,

    I'm a bit new to your forms but I also have the same question. I would like to develop a form where users could submit events as well.

    I'm not a programmer, I'm a designer. Could you tell me: if I used gravity forms, would I need to develop coding in order to integrate user submissions to your event database?

    Hi Mikey,

    Thats a tough question - it depends on what you are going to try to do. Probably not is my answer (but maybe). Gravity forms is a nice plugin and takes you most of the way without having to much in the code.

    I've started working through a free plugin called TDO Mini Forms that seems to me, to have the potential to do the job. What I don't understand now (again as a designer and not a coder) is how to program the forms to submit information to the Events Calendar. I'm now heading into the database to have a look at where your data is stored. If it's custom fields, that's going to make my life a bit easier!
