Support » Plugin: Events Manager » Simplified booking system

  • Resolved rowefx


    Hi all,

    Firstly I would like to make the obligatory thank you for such a great plugin.

    Now on to my question!

    I have set up my events page with my events, all works fine. No problems. However my events booking works a little differently to what the plugin wants to do out of the box.

    From my understand the events and bookings are all managed through WordPress, which is great, but not what I’m looking for.

    I simply want an external link (my event registrations are handled externally) so I just need a link on my event listing. The link needs to expire once the event has finished, I believe this functionality is already there though.

    So my question ultimately is can I just have my booking area be an external link? I could use the description box and possible hide everything else with CSS, but this a little hacky?

    Any guidance would be appreciated 🙂

    can I know what do you mean by “external link” ? is that means you’ve wanted to manage bookings in the frontend and not on the wp admin-dashboard? if yes, try Events > Settings > Pages > Other Pages > Manage bookings page >

    Hey, thanks for the reply.

    What i mean is simply a link for a booking, for example the external link would be something like:

    But this link needs to expire after the event date has surpassed.

    I’ll have a look at the Manage bookings page now.

    Thank you 🙂

    you could get this to work by enabling bookings, adding a cut-off date and using the conditional placeholder like {has_bookings} to show the link (which could be an #_ATT attribute) in your formats. you don’t have to show the booking form, remove the #_BOOKINGFORM placeholder.

    see these:

    Hey Macrus,

    That’s great. So far I have this:

         *external url needs to go here*

    How would I tie this in with the CMS?

    Many thanks 🙂

    I actually got this working after reading through the docs. I created a custom attribute

    Custom Event and Location Fields

    I then added to my formatting, I was definitely over thinking things, I didn’t think it would be as simple as that, great plugin! 🙂
