So I have installed your free version of frontend admin acf and I am looking to buy the pro. But I need to know if there is a way to get the start date, end date and set the event category. So far it fills in every other post meta area but sut need the last three and a payment option which I believe is included in the pro version. I am the developer so if you have any technical solutions i would love to know them and then I can buy the pro version and implement them

I don’t understand what you mean when you say “get the start date, end date and set the event category”. Do you want to display them?
November 3, 2022 at 5:06 pm #5600BrianGuest
We are trying to use a form to let user publish their own events into our tribe events calendar.
the acf fields are title ,start date, end date, description, category, and image. all the fields are getting applied to the new event posting except the start and end date/time and the category.
So I am wondering if there is a way to map those three fields to save and be applied to the new event post in wordpress I know I can find the tribe event field names to map them to since the tribe events calendar has good docs to find hooks and stuff
So yes I want to display them but first I want to save them to the event post field values so i can just use the event calendar templates

Is that something that is possible using tribe_create_event function or even using tribe_update_event once the form submission is approved
November 4, 2022 at 8:09 am #5606
I understand now.
What you need to do is the following assuming you are using this plugin: https://wordpress.org/plugins/the-events-calendar/
Give the Start Date field the name: _EventStartDate, and the end date field the name: _EventEndDate

Ok I will give it a try I think I may have tried it once but it wasn’t working. And this plugin does have a payment gateway option correct?
November 4, 2022 at 11:05 pm #5613BrianGuest
It is working now thanks I had tried changing those field names earlier but something wasn’t allow it to update and now it is. SO that’s great

Brian, yes, we have a payments addon that works with Stripe and Paypal.
I am glad the start and end dates are updating now.

Hey so got the event date and time to save but do you know how to save have an acf field save to a category for the event post type I tried name the field post_category but that doesn’t seem to be saving it.

One more question. If using a payment gateway does the funds get captured right away? Or if we have the form submission for a new post set to need admin approval, does it only collect the funds once the post is approved? That is how we would like it to work user submits payment, form submission goes to admin approval area and then once approved the funds get captured
November 16, 2022 at 9:41 pm #5818BrianGuest
So just checking in to see if you have a way of not capturing the stripe funds and just authorize the payment. So I think the Stripe docs talk about Payment Intents API is there away to hook into that so we can just save the payment info for later like after the admin approves the post?

just checking back in this issue. We did purchase the pro plugin should I direct my questions to a different forum?
November 17, 2022 at 8:40 pm #5825
Sorry for the late response. For now the way it works is that the client is charged before they can submit anything.
We definitely should add support for Payment intents. That way you can also have subscriptions.
This is the place to get guidance for using our plugins. Please also add feature requests for anything you would like us to add.
November 17, 2022 at 10:07 pm #5826BrianGuest
Ok so I can add that to the feature request and see how that goes.
We also were hoping to not have a submit button if the payment button is there. It would be cool to have the payment button submit the form if you are using payments. But yeah it would be cool if the payment intent was hooked up maybe just for when the post needs admin approval then once the submission is approved the end user would get charged. We kind of thought that was how it would work. I think I can use a payment link for now that they can set up in stripe to save the payment info and capture it later. But not 100% on that.
If I was to submit a feature request do you guys always add those features or is it upto you guys what you add and don’t? If you were going to add it how long would it be until it was ready for use?
There was one more question in the above thread which was
Do you know how to save the taxonomy to the tribe event calendar post? I got the date and time to work and I was looking through the docs for tribe and the tribe_creat_event function says it is using post_category to save the category but I tried using that in the form still can’t get the category to save
November 18, 2022 at 6:44 pm #5829BrianGuest
I got the categories to save finally had the saving of the form wrong but figured it out.
Now the only problem is since the last update of your plugin the event will not publish. It looks published but you have to actually go to the event and hit update again for it to actually show on the front end. IS there something you guys changed? It was working before the last update
November 20, 2022 at 10:16 pm #5851
It is possible to disable the submit buttons, but the payment button wouldn’t submit the form. But you are right, that should be an option.
Our rule of thumb with feature requests is: as long as it has to do with the plugin, we will add it. How long it takes depends on how complex of an issue it is and how many people ask for it. We just created the list so, for now, this request is pretty much one of the firsts in line.
