In our last tutorial, we showed you how to create an Add an event page to allow users to create events within your JEvents Calendar in Joomla 3. In this tutorial, we'll walk you through the steps a user would take to add an event.

  1. Click the link

    Now that you have added a menu link allowing users to create an event (see the link above), go to the frontend of your website and click the Add an event link.

  2. Login

    If you are not logged in, login to the frontend of your Joomla 3 site, otherwise you will see the the following warning:

    You are not authorised to create/edit events

  3. Add the event details

    After you login and visit the Add an event page, you will see a form where you can add an event. For example, you can type in a subject, choose an event colour, and type in details about the activity.

    In our testing, we did the following:

    Subject Brad's Birthday
    Activity Wed Apr 9, help us celebrate Brad's birthday at Paul's Pizzeria.

    We then clicked the Calendar tab (see screenshot above), set the Start date and End date, and then clicked the green Save button towards the top of the page. The event will be added and you will see the following message:

    Event Saved

    Now that we've added a new event, let's show you how to display a calendar on your Joomla 3 site so you can see the event!

Unfortunately, I was unable to replicate your issue, but was able to find a post on the JEvents forums which may resolve your issue.

I have the same problem, in the backend configuration (Configuration - Event Editing) there is a multiselect box "Required fields", where you must choose at least one required field from the core fields... the problem is I really don't need any of those :( this was not the case in the previous versions where I kept things neat and simple by selecting a category, entering the title and start/end time/date. Is there a way to avoid this? Thanks in advance!

Unfortunately, I am unaware of a way to avoid the required fields without making significant code changes to the plugin itself. You may want to contact the developer of the plugin for more information.

Unfortunately, I was unable to replicate the same error that you are having. Be sure that you are using Joomla 3, and have added all fields within the calendar.
