Facebook Events Import


I just bought your plugin and I’m interested in letting my users add their Facebook events to the calendar. Is it possible for them to import a Facebook event and the fields will be automatically filled?

I see you have an addon for Facebook and Google import but will my users be able to import their events?

      I am not sure what function you are looking for exactly.

      But, if your user has admin access, yes they can import them.

      I will recommend you to test the plugin live on our demo site so that you can be sure the function you are looking for exist:

      The functionality doesn’t seem to be there.

      Imagine the following scenario:

      My members are contributors (not admin) and they can add their own events.

      But they already have a public Facebook Event which they don’t own, for example https://www.facebook.com/events/216526268771874/

      They could add all the information in the event submission form and link to the Facebook event or,

      — this is my request — to just click a button “Import Facebook Event” which will fill all the event details based on the Facebook event page.

      I found a plugin in the WP directory which can import Facebook Events by event ID (without app ID) to Eventon but I would like to offer this possibility to the users, from the front-end.

      Do you think this is something you can add do your plugin?

      I love the design of your plugin, keep up the good work!

      Yes, those options are not available.

      You can certainly open a new feature-request ticket for this and, if it gets enough votes from other users, it will definitely get added in future updates.
