I would like to show whether the events are approved or pending approval. Is there an easy way to do this? I was thinking of doing it via categories (i have opened another thread to see how to enable that), but is there some other way we can show categories along with approval state of the event? Maybe Custom Field? If Custom Field, can we add that as a filter?
How are you ‘approving an event’?
You could use a custom field yes, EE events are custom post types so you can add a field to the event and output it on the page, however, I’m not sure what you mean by ‘add that as a filter’?
If you let us know the use case for this we should be able to advise better.
Events are approved manually by the department head. What I was hoping to see was, on calendar page we have sorting for Category and Venue, and wanted to add another sort/filter where event will either be in Approved State or Pending Approval
I added the categories with hierarchy, but on the drop down, its showing as separate items, so its not working the way i was hoping
How can I add a custom field and show it as a drop down like Categories and Venue?
Thanks in advance for your help
Ok, but in Event Espresso how are you ‘Approving’ an event? Whats the difference between an Approved event and a Pending Approval event?
Whilst that’s possible to do you’re going to need custom development to add that feature, you’ll likely need the help of a developer familiar with PHP, WP and Ajax requests.
I will also depend on how you are setting ‘Approved’ and ‘Pending Approval’ on the events.
Can you explain further on how you were hoping they would work?
Unfortunately, customizations such as these are not something we can provide on the forum. You would need the help of a developer to add that feature for you, if you are not currently working with one we have some that are familiar with Event Espresso listed here:
