Hi Jonathan,

I use the Custom Field Template Plugin to add e-mail, location and name
fields etc to event calendar.

> Sounds great :-)
> Actually I'm not yet at the point of customizing my template, but
> already in the admin panel, when I create a new post, an event only
> has a "start" and "end" for the date, and a "All day" tick box. I
> don't see any location or geo field. Do I need to activate this
> somewhere ? At least I didn't find anything in the configuration
> panel. A configuration file to edit somewhere ?
> Thanks for the precious help !!!
> It looks like a really great plug-in, does exactly what we need !
