where in gform_pre_submission_4 , 4 is the id of your form so you can change that

Kyle answers:

The code works https://github.com/adispezio/gf_ecp_frontend_submission/blob/master/functions.php

Have you double checked all of your inputs?

Here is the code I use for the date if you want to try adding this, you will have to update the form ids to yours

$php_startTime = strtotime( $entry[4].' '.$entry[5] );
$php_endTime = strtotime( $entry[6].' '.$entry[7] );

$title = $entry[12];
$desc = $entry[13];

$StartDate = date("Y-m-d",$php_startTime);
$StartHour = date("h",$php_startTime);
$StartMinute = date("i",$php_startTime);
$StartMeridian = date("A",$php_startTime);

$EndDate = date("Y-m-d",$php_endTime);
$EndHour = date("h",$php_endTime);
$EndMinute = date("i",$php_endTime);
$EndMeridian = date("A",$php_endTime);

$post = array(
'post_author' => $current_user->ID,
'post_status' => 'publish',
'post_title' => $title,
'post_content' => $desc,
'post_type' => TribeEvents::POSTTYPE,
'EventStartDate' => $StartDate,
'EventEndDate' => $EndDate,
'EventStartHour' => $StartHour,
'EventStartMinute' => $StartMinute,
'EventStartMeridian' => $StartMeridian,
'EventEndHour' => $EndHour,
'EventEndMinute' => $EndMinute,
'EventEndMeridian' => $EndMeridian
);


$the_post_id = tribe_create_event( $post );


Creativira comments:

Kyle,

Thanks for your contribution. Will try it out.


Kyle comments:

I can help you build the rest of this out if you want to go this route instead the code from http://anthonydispezio.com/ let me know

I prefer to use the gravity form and events calendar hooks instead of what he used in his code. So in this case I would rather use the $entry from gravity form instead of $_POST and tribe_create_event will work best.


Kyle comments:

Here is the code for organizer too, you'll have to adjust the entry ids here as well

$post_2 = array(
'post_author' => $current_user->ID,
'post_status' => 'publish',
'post_title' => $title,
'post_content' => $desc,
'post_type' => 'tribe_organizer',
'OrganizerOrganizer, => $entry[16],
'OrganizerEmail' => $entry[17],
'OrganizerWebsite' => $entry[18],
'OrganizerPhone => $entry[19],
);


$the_post_id_2 = tribe_create_organizer( $post_2 );


Kyle comments:


Here is everything (don't forget to change the form id on the after submission line 1):

add_action("gform_after_submission_2", "create_event_org", 10, 2);
function create_event_org($entry, $form){

$current_user = wp_get_current_user();

$php_startTime = strtotime( $entry[4].' '.$entry[5] );
$php_endTime = strtotime( $entry[6].' '.$entry[7] );

$title = $entry[12];
$desc = $entry[13];

$StartDate = date("Y-m-d",$php_startTime);
$StartHour = date("h",$php_startTime);
$StartMinute = date("i",$php_startTime);
$StartMeridian = date("A",$php_startTime);

$EndDate = date("Y-m-d",$php_endTime);
$EndHour = date("h",$php_endTime);
$EndMinute = date("i",$php_endTime);
$EndMeridian = date("A",$php_endTime);

$post = array(
'post_author' => $current_user->ID,
'post_status' => 'publish',
'post_title' => $title,
'post_content' => $desc,
'post_type' => TribeEvents::POSTTYPE,
'EventStartDate' => $StartDate,
'EventEndDate' => $EndDate,
'EventStartHour' => $StartHour,
'EventStartMinute' => $StartMinute,
'EventStartMeridian' => $StartMeridian,
'EventEndHour' => $EndHour,
'EventEndMinute' => $EndMinute,
'EventEndMeridian' => $EndMeridian
);


$the_post_id = tribe_create_event( $post );
$post_2 = array(
'post_author' => $current_user->ID,
'post_status' => 'publish',
'post_title' => $title,
'post_content' => $desc,
'post_type' => 'tribe_organizer',
'OrganizerOrganizer, => $entry[16],
'OrganizerEmail' => $entry[17],
'OrganizerWebsite' => $entry[18],
'OrganizerPhone => $entry[19],
);

$the_post_id_2 = tribe_create_organizer( $post_2 );

Hi viracreatv,

Are you aware of the Community Events plugin published by Modern Tribe? It comes with the functionality you're looking for:

Creativira comments:

Hi jazbek,

Thanks for your reply. Yes, I'm aware. There are fields not require such as venue, cost, etc. Customization is not user friendly. Prefer Gravity Forms for all forms on the site for consistency.
