Support » Plugin: Events Manager » Very simple event creation form

  • Resolved Steve Greenham



    I’m wanting to let our club members create sailing events, but with most of the fields pre-set. Really it would be as simple as cutting the event-editor.php file down to only require:

    – start date
    – finish date [would always be whole days]
    – one of two categories (one for each of our boats)

    The event name would always be “Club Sail”. the location would always be our home marina. Has anyone already produced something like this?

    I’ve seen all the references to taking a copy of the standard template file, and have done so but the copy doesn’t seem to be being picked up. I’ve copied event-editor.php to


    and also tried




    I’ve just made a minor change to one of the labels (changed “Birthday Party” to “Steve Birthday Party”). The change shows up when I edit the event-editor.php file in the original location, but not if I make a copy to the above location. Could someone confirm which is the correct destination directory?

    you can try something like wp-content/themes/Your Theme/plugins/events-manager/forms/event-editor.php

    Hi Angelo, that works and it is now the local copy of the form that is being displayed. Thanks.

    Unfortunately, the date picker is now not working and entering a date manually throws an error telling me to use the date picker. Do I need to copy another file across as well?

    it’s should not affect the date picker however did you modify the date picker format under Events > Settings > Formatting > Date/Time Format > Date Picker Format
