Add-On Type(s)

Extension, Fieldtype, Module


Automatically set Entry Dates and Expiration Dates using custom date and time fields to make managing events channels a breeze.

Event Helper combines an intelligent extension with a no-frills custom date fieldtype to offer a simple but powerful way to manage events in ExpressionEngine���®.

  • Setup multiple channels with discrete settings on how start/end dates, start/end times, and expiration dates are managed in each.
  • Intelligently set the Entry Date and Expiration Date for your events using the best combination of supplied dates and times.
  • Use native Date fields, or better yet, use Event Helper’s custom date field to simplify the date picker with date-only selections and a configurable fixed timestamp.

Event Helper works seamlessly when creating or updating entries from both the control panel and via Channel Forms.

Requires ExpressionEngine 3.1.0 or greater. Support for start times and end times requires the free Time Select fieldtype (included in download).
