View Full Version : Create post based on event

Is there a way to automatically create a corresponding post when an event is created?

No there isn't. Integration in WP at the moment only includes displaying the calendar.

Thanks a lot.
Is there an integration with Twitter and/or Facebook where events can be pushed to FB automatically?

Actually, there is no integration with any 3rd party right now that allows for automatic posting.
This is not because of lack of resources, but rather because of the closed source of EPC.
The best alternative that I can propose is my RSS feed module, however, it wouldn't work for automatic posting of only-new events.

That's a shame.
The RSS feed might work, What else would it pick up?

Normally, a single GUID is generated for each event added to an RSS feed.. and the system keeps track of new items by matching that GUID with it's own list of known GUIDs...
Problem with this is that my RSS feed generates a new GUID every time that the RSS feed is refreshed... so there won't be any tracking of existing events possible.
