I’m just starting to set up a site that will list organizations and also list events that those organizations will hold.
I would like to set up two ways for them to submit listings — one will contain the fields for establishing the information for the organization, and one that will contain the information for events that it will hold.
So the first will ask for:
Name, contact person, focus area (tags) website, etc
The second will ask for:
Event name, date of the event, location, etc
Is this possible?
I have set up Organization and Events as categories. Was that a good idea?
What you’ve mentioned is possible but only through a single submission form i.e. you can collect all the information about the organization as well as the events under one form and you can use any custom form fields for this. The custom form fields can be setup under BD Admin -> Manage Form Fields. Beyond that, setting up different forms for collecting different information is something that would require direct hacking into the core plugin.
Setting up Organization and Events as categories might work as well, but normally, it is good to use the primary function of your directory for the categories. So for example, if you have different types of events then you can setup a category for each type and the Organization name/details can be handled through the business name and description fields etc.
