Sure, I’m using Croco Jet Engine, not AFC but I’m sure it can be done with ACF as well. What I did was to add a steps a broadcaster need to go through to go live. Before going live I have a form with a hidden field se it looks like a button. The button saying something like “I’ve reviewed event details and are ready to go live”. When that form is submitted the post is updated with a custom field saying it’s live, page is refreshed and a condition is set to the WPstream “start live event” to show when that field is active.
This works well since it’s easy to have a listing grid in the homepage only displaying posts with the live active. I have another form that also shows when it’s live saying something like “finished broadcasting” that does the opposite. Though this step is easy for a broadcaster to forget so I’m honestly keeping an eye on live listings and addressing it if they do.
Hope this helps.
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.
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.
