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. Featured event area

    As i believe, this plugin missing featured events section ( slider ) on event list page itself. ( also widget )

    It could be view like map view. top we could have featured events then page continued by list of events.

    This gonna be really good feature since customers can make extra income from this.

    • 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

                  What do you guys and gals think?

                  • [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!

                              How does one "easily" follow up on a forum thread posting? Each time I return I have to search for the needle in the haystack to check the current status for my post. This is way too time consuming and counter-intuitive.

                              I am simply trying to follow up on a post I submitted a few days back on support for Timezones via UTC. We are starting to get complaints from our international members regarding the confusion caused by not having the timezone displayed.

                              • Event Redirect Link from Calendar

                                Add an option to redirect an event to a static page, post or external URL. Event shows in calendar grid and listings, but when the user clicks the event, they are immediately redirected to the destination URL.

                                This allows placing events into the calendar such as those managed by a third party, FB events, or recurring events that have a specific landing page and URL, and allows the user to immediately get to the correct page.

                                (Currently, we are doing this with a separate redirect plugin. Works, but it's extra plugin overhead.)

                                    I have a lot of old, inactive organizers so it would be great if they wouldn't show up and clutter the drop down by default.

                                    ---
                                    My site has about 4-5 regular organizers that post several events per day and many short-term organizers that rarely post more than one or two events. As time goes on, it will have many more of these one-time organizers.

                                      Would be great to be able to set the permalink within CSV if possible, as well as any tags and the featured image location.

                                        How about insert watermarks on the events featured images?
                                        - event ongoing
                                        - event ended
                                        - event sold out

                                          The Time filter returns events based on if their Start Time and End Time falls within the selected time frame. For example, selecting “Afternoon” displays an event that has a Start Time of 10am and an End Time of 1pm, since the event would still be occurring during the 12pm-5pm “Afternoon” time frame.
