The Form Builder is a new addon for MEC which employs Elementor Page Builder.
It allows you to style ticket forms however you want. In order to use Form Builder, you need to have MEC Pro and Elementor Page Builder installed and activated.
For installation, first, make sure that both MEC and Elementor Page Builder are installed and activated. Then, head over to your WordPress Dashboard > Plugins > Add New and upload, install, and activate the addon.
NOTE: The addon works with MEC version 4.2.3 and higher.
Make sure to enable this option from Elementor > Settings > General.
In order to create your first form, please go to MEC > Form Builder and click on Add New With Elementor.
Styling tickets with Modern Events Calendar Form Builder Addon

Two ways to set the Modern Events Calendar form builder addon
In order to enable the form in the back-end of an event with a ticket, you need to uncheck the box for “Inherit from global options” in MEC Settings > Booking Form.
Now you have two options to choose your form.
1- You can use the traditional method and create your form in MEC Settings > Booking Form which has the default style.
2- You can also click on “Elementor Form Builder,” and select your desired form which you created before; by simply selecting it from the drop-down menu.
There is another way to set this form, in this way you can set this form as the default Booking Form on all published events. In order to enable this form, you must go to the M.E.Calendar > Settings > Booking > Booking Form.
Now update your event or publish it if you just created it and then click View Event. Click the register button to be redirected to the booking section or have the booking module pop up open.
Complete the purchase, and then the form you have created will be available there. Check everything to make sure everything you created with Modern Events Calendar from Builder Addon is working accordingly.
For the file’s fields, you need to make some adjustments.
1. You can set certain limits for uploading files from MEC Settings > Upload Field. These limits include the size of the file or its format.
2. The size for the file to upload is set by the php.ini file which is the file handling your site’s server: upload_max_filesize on the php.ini file. For more information please contact your host provider.
- You can create a separate form for each event.
- Both the classic form builder and the Elementor form builder addon can be configured.
- For a classic, go to MEC Settings > Booking > Form Builder and you have the option to set a global form for all your events or you can customize your very own form from the event’s editing page. or skip all that and have created your very own forms using the Elementor addon.
