We love events.

It’s great to be able to meet people to share experiences and knowledge, or just to have a good time. Also, it is wonderful that the internet and tools such as The Events Calendar allow us to reach more people and celebrate our special occasions in the most organized way with just a few clicks.

If you have an event organization company, or if you are part of a company that constantly organizes events with its clients, you may want to give someone on your team specific responsibility for creating the events on your site.

Of course, what you want is for this person to create events from the frontend of your site without having to deal with wp-admin, that is, to create events without losing the main look of the website.

And that’s what we want to show you in this short and simple tutorial.

For this we’ll use the WP Frontend Admin plugin. This plugin allows you to view and edit any backend page on the frontend of your site with a simple click.

Important Questions

1- Can I use other plugins to create web apps?

Yes. You can display any admin page on the frontend, and it works with all WordPress plugins.

Yes. You can use it with other page builders such as Elementor, Visual Composer, Gutenberg, Divi, Beaver Builder, WP Page Builder, Page Builder by SiteOrigin, Oxygen, Live Composer, Brizy, and many others to create great sites.

3- What if I cannot see this page on the frontend after login?

If you can not view the page after log in, you need to use one of these roles:

In case you don’t want to assign one of these roles, you can create a new user role with the User Role Editor plugin. This new user role needs the edit_tribe_events capability.

You can hide all elements you want. It all depends on you. Just be careful not to hide important elements that your users may need in the future.
