List all live broadcasts + custom fields
- January 21, 2021 at 3:15 pm #108065
Does anyone know if I can have a list of what is live right now? Can’t find a shortcode for that.
I have also added custom fields (with jet engine) but for some reason, it doesn’t show up
Any ideas are more than welcome!

You can check which channels are live by going to “My Account” on WpStream and “Your Live Events”. It will show all your events and whether they are recorded or not, and if they are live. I am not sure what you mean by custom fields.
Please let me know if this is what you are looking for.January 21, 2021 at 3:38 pm #108068
Appreciate the quick response! Though I was hoping for a way to display on my homepage which broadcasts are live now for a regular visitor to hop right in.
When I couldn’t find that option I added two custom fields when setting up a stream, where you enter your title, description etc. A field saying starting at this time and ends at this time. This way I can display live streams on the homepage. Though when I create a custom field it doesn’t show up.

Sorry I couldn’t be of more help regarding this.January 22, 2021 at 11:43 am #108190
Great to hear – though I will be needing it quite soon.
If anyone is curious I found a workaround. Adding custom fields did work with ACF – so I will have the streamer adding their estimated start time and estimated end time and then I display all broadcasts in between these time on the homepage as “live now”. It won’t be as accurate but close enough.

I will not be able to provide you with the exact timeframe but if other viewers vote on this, it will be prioritized.
And thank you for your recommendation! We really do appreciate it when our valued customers contribute to this forum 🙂
