    Hello,
    Just some questions:

    -How can I add a submission form in a static page without showing it in the event list?
    I don’t want this as a “proper” event, it’s just a page where registered and logged in users can submit their participation because they are official members of the community.

    -How can I automatically add users to an event without the need to log-in to their profile and submit the event for them?

    -Are there any ready to use format for the events list page?
    I’m trying to add the cover photo but somewhat I can’t get a good result considering most of my users are from mobile.
    Even if I add a column for the photos near the name/place/date information, the text is not centered and has a weird look.
    There’s something about the class of the table (events-table/event-time/event-description) that doesn’t allow the name/place/date to be centered with the cover photos.

    Thank you

    A booking (and the booking from) is always linked to a specific event. You can not say “Hey some day I will be there”. If you do not book a specific event there is absolutely no way of knowing when they will attend.

    You don’t! Loggin in is the correct and only way to link a user to a booking. Not logging in means they are not verified and anyone could book in their name.
    Not logging in = no user linking. Simple.

    In Events > Settings > Formatting> Events List Page you can define your 100% custom layout. All you need is basic knowledge of HTML and CSS.

    I was meaning that i don’t want to show the event in the events list. Maybe with some conditional?
    The fact that this event isn’t really correlate with a date and a place is just because it isn’t.
    It’s like a “subscribe” button, without any consequence to the users.
    This way I can manage in the back-end who is really an official member.

    As stated before, i don’t know why (if I’m an Administrator) I can log-in in the front-end as an user and link it to a booking, but I can’t simply do that in my back-end in the Events > Bookings page with the simplicity of a button to integrate users in an event.

    Done, thank you

    I can log-in in the front-end as an user

    The key word here is: log-in. If not logged-in, there is no link to any user account. 😉

    I can’t simply do that in my back-end

    Yes you can, but that is EM Pro feature (one of the many great ones). Then you can simply select a user from a drop down and add a booking using the integrated Offline Payment Gateway, without switching users.

    Sounds like you “need” BuddyPress, which is fully integrated into EM. I have not used it myself, but I do see a lot of other EM users (here in the forum and Pro forum) using it. That way you can assign events to certain groups, allowing only those group members to book a ticket for that event.

    It comes across as if you want to do a lot of work by hand yourself. (No rudeness intended!). Perhaps if you described what your ideal, automated booking situation would have to look like, we can point out some helpful settings and/or plugins. 😀
