Feature Ideas

Howdy. In our adventures to create tools that help you kick ass, we could use some advice. What are you looking for that would make you more successful? What features do you want to see? What should we build next?

Our tools help the right people, get to the right place at the right time. How can we improve our products and make them super awesome for you and your users?

Before posting your idea, please look to see if someone else has suggested it, or something very similar. That will help us better understand what features are the most widely asked for, and address those requests most efficiently. Duplicate threads will be deleted!

Please not, this is NOT a place to get support or ask questions about how the plugin works. If you need help, please visit our forums. If you use our free core plugin, you can post in our forum on WordPress.org

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

  1. Make external event link a button or word instead

    Where we can make a External Event link a button instead of the full external link. If the external link to the event is quite long it doesn't make a pleasant design. The long external links are ungly on their own in body content of a blog post. If we could use the words "link" or external website.

    I also posted this to the WordPress forums.

      • Integration with EventFul

        Hello - new user of the plugin here. We are a large community of activists and bring together a number of events - so far Evenbrite plugin has been amazing.

        I wonder if it would be possible to import from Eventful? They have a great accessible API and the monitor the fair use of this: http://api.eventful.com

        The API is quite extensive. But in particular I'd like to search by keyword, location and venue.

        Thanks!

          • Remove /category/ from urls

            For SEO purposes, remove /category/ from urls like mysite.com/events/category/music/ for SEO Purposes. It should be mysite.com/events/music/ instead.

              • Event 404s Redirect to a Custom Page

                So, I'm getting lots of 404 errors in my webmaster dashboard. I know this is somewhat of a common issue with this plugin. So, I had an idea of how to solve it.

                I just thought that when searching for a date that shows empty results, you could redirect to an editable page to give the customers whatever kind of message you want would be much nicer that a 404.

                Basically, all event searches that return zero results are shown as a 404, but it's not REALLY a 404. It's just an empty page with no events on that date.

                  Thanks for this idea Micha. I can definitely see how a custom page would be handy. However, if you are experiencing that many 404 errors there is probably a deeper issue. Have you tried posting in our support forums (http://m.tri.be/e9)? We can help you troubleshoot there.

                • SEO Friendly permalinks: event/month-day-year/title

                  It would be great to have a bit SEO friendlyness for the URL structure. Either: event/month-day-year/title or event/category/month-day-year/title.

                  This would most certainly benefit everyones events to show up on Google abit better and the URL structure would keep consistent and clean all the way :)

                  More thoughts about URL friendlyness is described here: http://searchengineland.com/seo-friendly-url-syntax-practices-134218

                  • add waitlist capability

                    If events are sold out, it'd be nice to have a waitlist capability for last minute ticket cancellations.

                    • [Multisite] A single calendar on the front page and it should contain ALL events across the network.

                      At this time, there is no way to share the calendar across sites. Each subsite has it’s own calendar.

                      Add or share all network sites events (from the multisite installs) from their calendars to the main WP install calendar. I mean I want to have a single calendar on the front page and it should contain ALL events across the network.

                      I think it is a cool idea and you can see how that could be super useful & time saving.

                      Can this be done?

                      • Facebook Events: display attendees

                        It would be great to see an additional section in the single event pages for Attendees.

                        Additionnally, in this "Who Is Going" section, there would be two horizontal tabs : JonSmith Attendees (custom text) | Facebook attendees

                        We could find the number of attendees between parenthesis right after the headers. The Facebook section would of course appear only if the event is linked to a Facebook event.

                        Inspiration came from a competitor, Wantickets, see here the last section : http://www.wantickets.com/Events/ShowEvent.aspx?eventId=156513

                        Cheers!

                        • Allow Third Parties to Write Extensions for an Extension Marketplace

                          We have lots of ideas for The Events Calendar that we'd like to develop ourselves, relating to facilities management, notifications, and volunteerism. It would be nice to work out some kind of arrangement where you could sell them and take a piece of the profit. You could also ensure that your high UX standards are maintained this way.

                                    • Automatic/Batch Import of Events from Individuals on Facebook

                                      Currently we can only subscribe to import events from groups and pages but many of us also want to import events hosted by individuals.

                                      Manually fetching event ID numbers is tedious, especially when there is a recurring event hosted by an individual.

                                      One way to tackle this can be by having the same mechanism we have for groups and pages - simply enter the Facebook account username or ID number and the plugin will list all the events for that user.

                                      Another way is to import every event that we marked as "going" on Facebook.

                                      • Future & Past Events Widget (Confirm Event Attendance)

                                        I know "RSVP" on an event page has already been suggested & you've marked it as under review ,I can't agree more a tick box to confirm users attendance that populates a list of attending users names would help make this calendar even further ahead of its competitors.

                                        But I think the end user, i.e. the subscriber to any ones website and the whole reason we build them, would most appreciate the fact they can click their attending & have a widget they can click to see their future & past events. There is also a future events widget so…
