Can this plugin allow registered site visitors to add an event to the “regular” Event Calendar page… not just to the user’s profile? I would like the events, once approved, to appear on the calendar. I think my question is similar to the one posted above.

Hi,

I’m wondering the same thing as the previous two people.
Can an ultimate member member post an event to Events calendar that is seen publicly by everyone else who visits the website?
I mean are all the events posted through your plugin going to appear on Events Calendar and be visible to everyone?

Yes, all the events posted/created through Ultimate Member Events Calendar plugin are actually stored as Events of “Events Calendar” plugin and appears publicly to be seen by everyone on Events Calendar. However, various privacy settings of the plugin “Events Calendar” & “UM Events Calendar” do apply to the visibility.

Thanks !
