Frontend Event Submission adds to the versatility of the Modern Events Calendar as you cut unnecessary backend processes. This means that every single user doesn’t need to create an account to book.
You can select a static page for the Event List and Add List page using this option. It is similar to the main WordPress settings for the Homepage and Post page. The difference is that you should put a specified shortcode (below the “select” option) into whatever page that you want.
Therefore, from the first drop-down menu, you can choose your static page to show the events created by your users. The second drop-down menu is used to set the page for add/edit events by your users.
Note: You can also copy the shortcode written in front of each option and then place it on the page that you want to set as your static event list page or add/edit page.
