Autoselect event in dropdown
I've a request for a feature.
We run a website which uses The Events Calendar. On a content page, we explain what the event is and at the bottom we place a button to the form to subscribe or sign up. But that form has a dropdown of multiple events, so the user has to choose the right event. What we want is, when you click on the button, there will be (from our side) a parameter included in the url like: [url]?event=[eventname], and when the page with the form is reached, the form will try to pickup that event parameter and select the common event in the dropdown, see screenshots for further explanation.
What we want is to add a parameter to the url of the button like this
Then this dropdown will try to select the right option if the value is equal to the url parameter
Please let me know if this is possible to build. If not, do you have suggestions for me to make a better flow, so the visitor doesn't need to select their event after they were redirected with the intention they will be signing up for the right event.
Let me know! Thanks!
It sounds like you need help with your customization, which is not something we can provide. However, if there’s a specific change we can make to our plugin(s) that would make it easier for you to customize, please make a new post and we can consider it for a future release.
