I need to create a schedule, something like this: hidden link
I have looked at so many WordPress plug-ins and none of them really do what I need, which essentially is to have a combination of repeating and one off events that can all be shown together in a filterable calendar. The link above does use a WP plug-in and would be ideal but it requires subscription to a third party service. Before I spend an unimaginable number of hours trying to figure it out, do you think this can be achieved using WP-Types? or are you aware of a plug-in that already exists that could save me a lot of time?
On a related question, I have already started playing about with it and the first obstacle I have hit is that I need to add a custom field for just "time" rather than "date & time". How is this possible?
Thank you for contacting Toolset support, I'd be delighted to assist!
While Toolset is a rich suite of tools to use to build just about any site, I fear that at least from my perspective that it could take some time and effort to build form scratch. I'm not saying that it can't do it, just that personally I feel as if there is already a solution that works, why not use it?
The first plugin that comes to mind is Event Manager. Many of our users have modified it with the help of Toolset, such as adding custom Taxonomies or Fields. I don't think that it can render like in the example though!
There are some sites out there with Event and Booking plugin reviews, check it out! hidden link
At the time of input in a CRED form, the time format isn't supported. However, when it's a matter of displaying the value of this date field (with a post, page or view). You can format it using Types or Views short codes. Because all dates are stored in Unix Timestamp format, so these can easily be converted into desired format, when needed.
I don't think I explained that very well – for the recurring classes, I don't need a date, only a time. So am I correct that when setting up the custom fields for that post type using a date field is not the way to go?
Right, what I'm trying to say is - we don't have a time field in Types currently. To add one would require some custom development and the above was just one way of writing some custom code to accomplish this.
The "Date" field works for the time as well. All you need to select "Input date and time" when configuring your field. However if you are looking for a "time only" field, that's not possible with Types. Since "time" (hour/minutes/seconds) itself have no value when separated from a "date".
