Community Events

Let users add their own events to your calendar!


Accept user-submitted events on your site with Community Events, a helpful add-on that makes it easy to manage event submissions while also retaining full control over your calendar.

Community Events adds an event submission form to the frontend of your website so users can add events to your calendar without needing admin access. Standard event fields allow them to input basic event details, and you can even give them the ability to add categories and tags based on your predefined settings.

Plugin settings allow you to maintain complete event management control. You can require users to register with your site before submitting events (or not), choose whether events are published immediately or held as drafts for moderation, and control whether users can edit their events after submission. It’s all up to you – just configure your options and let the event submissions start rolling in.
