ACF and Events Manager

  • Hello,

    This looks exactly like the plugin I need, however I am quite rusty with my web design/development skills.

    I noticed on the Events Manager support forum someone mentioned they created ACF and was able to use it with Events Manager.

    Is someone able to provide a guidance as to how I create a WYSIWYG attribute on my create event page?

    I figure it is something to do with the Events Attribute but not sure how to link ACF and EM together.

    Would love a guide on how to do this.


  • So I think I got somewhere.

    I was able to add the filed to my edit-event.php within EM and it displays on the front end.

    However when I click on submit event it does not do anything and therefore the event is not saving.

    I added:
    <?php acf_form_head(); ?>
    <?php the_field(‘sponsors’); ?>
    <?php acf_form(); ?>

    Do I need to add something else to save the field? Or is there is a conflict between ACF and EM when I use this approach?

  • Does it need to be an input type?

    Sorry I feel like this might have been done before and I don’t have much coding skills so getting lost as to how best to:
    – Display this field to a user
    – Have them update the field
    – That field be saved against that event

    Would love some help.


  • Hi @startershut

    I am little confused in what you are trying to achieve.

    Are you trying to add more fields to the events manager?

    Kinldy explain more on how far you are so that we may be able to help.

    In the meantime, have a look at this article
