    Is there a way to attribute an event created in the back end to a front end user?

    So for example could I create an event in the back-end on behalf of a user how would I make them the organiser?

    You can use the organiser metabox (check screen options and/or Settings > General if this isn’t appearing) on the edit event screen to select a WP user account as the organiser. But you can’t assign the event to a person without an account.

    Hi Stephen,

    I have checked the screen options and checked to display author, but this only let me change the submitted back to the admin. Which meta box should I be able to change the organiser in? I have currenty Event Details, Event tickets, event categories, event tags and featured image.

    I could not find any relevant settings in setings-general

    Hi Lukas,

    I’ve taken a look at this, and I’ve found that in certain circumstances the event organiser/author metabox might not appear even when selected in the screen options. I have two test installs: one where it is working, and one where it isn’t, so I’ll be looking into this.

    In the mean time, you could quick-edit the event.
