    Hi Brajesh

    Good to hear ๐Ÿ™‚

    I have now purchased the Community Events plugin (extension for the Events Calendar with 30 days refunds period), so I can test it out. The Community Events works fine in some way:

    1) Users can add new events that I can set as published when submitted
    2) Users can see a list of their events
    3) The events get viewed on the calendar

    But the Community Events plugin doesn’t solve this:
    A) Users can not add RSVP to an event even though I also have installed the free Event Ticket plugin
    B) Users can not select a BuddyPress Group for the event
    C) If the user adds an event from their Profile Page he can add a group
    D) If the user adds an event from their Profile Page he can NOT add an RSVP
    E) If the user adds an event from their Profile Page the event gets saved as a DRAFT

    Given these issues I think – for me – the best solution would still be to use the combo Events Calendar Pro + Event Ticket + BP Events Calendar and try to get the BP Event Calendar updated so it can save events as published AND add RSVP.

    Hi Torben,
    That sounds good.

    It will be nice to know which route you went with it finally in the future.

    Hi Brajesh

    I definitely think that I will follow this route:
    Events Calendar Pro + Event Ticket + BP Events Calendar

    To begin with, I will try to remove some of the elements in the bpec-event-form.php I don’t need to make it more simple:
    – Organizer
    – Event website
    – Ticket

    Then I will try to see if I can fix the draft-issue myself or I have to get help from the plugin developers (but they don’t seem so communicative like you!)

    Doing that I can accept that I have to add an RSVP manually as admin if a user asks to get it on an event. Later on I will try to get that fixed too of course.

    What do you think of that?

    Best regards
    Torben

    Hi Torben,
    That looks good to me.

    For changing event status, try this and let me know if it works.

    Open
    ‘bp-events-calendar/includes/class-bpec-event-form.php`

    On line 183, try changing this

    
    $this->posted_data['post_status'] = 'draft';
    

    to

    
    $this->posted_data['post_status'] = 'publish';
    

    Does that make any change? I haven’t tried it but it may work.

    Regards
    Brajesh

    Awesome. It worked! Thank you! ๐Ÿ™‚

    But don’t you think I should make the change in a separate custom plugin instead of hard-coding the original plugin? Or what is the best practice here?

    You are welcome.

    You are right about the changes.

    For template changes, you can copy it to your theme.

    For the plugin change(like publish), I am not sure if there is a filter that they have provided. For now, you may keep the change in plugin and ask them to provide a filter for status in future.

    Hi Torben and Brajesh,

    Torben did you find a solution allowing your users to add their ticket pricing by themselves?

    Best regards,

    Hi Beuza,
    Thank you for asking.

    I did not look into it any further. I am not sure if Torben was able to find something.

    Regards
    Brajesh
