Integrate Advanced Custom Fields with The Events Calendar Community Events

Advanced Custom Fields fields play well with TEC Community Events using some basic template modifications

Getting Advanced Custom Fields to work with Modern Tribe's The Events Calendar is simple - just create the ACF fields or groups, assign them to "tribe_events" post type, and the new fields appear in the event add/edit form.

But is it possible to get them to show up on the front-end forms for The Events Calendar's fantastic Community Events? And more importantly, does the data from those fields get saved to the database?

Yes, and yes.
