“If you set your calendar to go back to the main plugin page for view or signup links on the calendar, the links that normally return you to the main sheet list page will be modified to return you to the calendar that you came from (extra parameter added to URL), and the text will be changed to reflect that you will be taken back to the calendar.”
This is one of the features listed under the Volunteer Sign Up Sheets Calendar Display.
I do not want to use the popup feature, but I want volunteers to be able to go back to the calendar page instead of the main list after they sign up. What do I have to change in order for that to happen? Thanks!
That’s not currently a feature. If you redirect them to the main sheet list page for signing up, there will be text links where they can return to the calendar (if they don’t submit the form), but the signup form itself is an html posted form to the server, so it will just reload the page it is on. The signup form page and the sheet list page are actually the same page, it just shows something different on the page depending of if the form has been posted or what arguments are set in the URL.
Going back to the calendar page after the signup form is submitted would requiring processing the form before WordPress starts to output page headers (before it starts to process the shortcode that displays the page content), and then forcing WordPress to redirect to a different page. Not as simple as it may seem, and it would require modifications to the main/free plugin, as the calendar plugin is not handling the signup form if you aren’t using the popup signup form.
You can certainly add this as a feature request, and I can try to figure out if it’s possible.
