Feature Ideas

Hey there and welcome to our feature request forum for The Events Calendar, Event Tickets and all of the premium plugins we develop provide on TheEventsCalendar.com!

We’re always looking for new and awesome ways to improve our products. We think they’re pretty great out of the box, but we also know that there are often things that could make them even better for how folks like yourself use them in the real world. 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? That’s where we can use your help!

If there are features that our products do not currently support but you think would be a huge added value for you and lots of other people, then please share them here with us. The submission form will walk you through a few quick questions to get the ball rolling.

Before posting your idea, here are a few tips that will help make your request stand out and succeed:

  • Look to see if someone else has suggested the same idea, or something very similar. Many ideas are being submitted and it’s very possible that another request already exists. In that case, add your vote to the existing request.
  • Be as descriptive as possible. What does the feature do? Where would it be located? Who would use it? How does this improve the overall experience of managing an events calendar in WordPress?
  • Use mockups, if possible. Pictures are worth a thousand words and having a visual often brings a greater level of clarity to an idea.

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 help desk. If you use our free core plugin, you can post in our forum on WordPress.org.

  1. More sophisticated related events results

    This is an idea to improve the “related events” feature on Event Calendar.

    As of today, this feature basically only relies on categories and tags to suggest related events, which is very basic to say the least. There are free WP Plugin out there like “Yet Another Related Posts Plugin” that are based on a customizable algorithm to suggest related posts based on more than simple categories and tags.

    For instance, I could imagine that in addition to categories and tags, related events could be based on geography (ex: other events in Colorado / other events within 80 miles from…

  2. Featured events quick edit

    Add support for the featured event checkbox when in bulk edit mode and/or in Quick Edit mode.

    That way you don't have to individually set the featured event status on each featured event one by one.

  3. Allow event descriptions appearing in the main blog loop to be stickied

    More or less as in the title. In order to promote a specific event, it would be useful to have the description that appears in the main blog loop stickied in the same manner that an ordinary post might be.

  4. Shortcode > Featured Organizer

    As well as having a tribefeaturedvenue shortcode it would be great if there was a featured organiser. I know you can create a list of organisers and venues using the shortcode plugin but I want specific results. Fingers crossed

  5. Option to show EXCERPT on Upcoming events widget

    Would be great if in the PRO version, the events list widget could have the option to show the excerpt - a check box just like for the Price, Venue, City, Address, etc. Thanks :)

  6. Update the Countdown SHORTCODE to include next event functionality

    The Events Calendar is a great plugin and very useful for a lot of situations. My one major suggestion so far is as follows:

    It would be very helpful to add the "countdown to next event" functionality to the Countdown shortcode. The widget doesn't always fit into a sites design and having to update the current shortcode every time an event passes is quite cumbersome.

    The shortcode can be styled using css to greater effect in some cases.

    There was a functions.php code addition that someone added in the support forums for this in 2016 but it tends to break…

  7. Shortcode to display all Event Categories used

    I would love to see a shortcode that scrobbles all event categories used (with filter parameters built in, of course) in much the same way that Wordpress can scrobble all post categories by default in a sidebar widget. Also, some kind of automated Javascript that gives you the option (maybe in the settings or back-end) to specify which pages you'd like to display the event category widget on (i.e. all event-related pages, everything under /event and /events) would be awesome.

    I could definitely see the utility of this feature in other applications besides just a sidebar event categories widget, but…

  8. Allow x Number of Upcoming Recurring Events to Display

    It would be great to be able to show more than just only one upcoming event in a recurring series. Ideally this would be per recurring event series so you could customize it different for different recurring events. This would be helpful in situations where one recurring event dominates the calendar for the next few weeks, but you still want to be able to show more than just one.

  9. Private Link Events without need to log in

    We had an organization we wanted to allow to purchase tickets before going on sale to the public. However the event gets posted to our calendar and we'd rather it not be seen by the public until the general sale. This seems like something many business and organizations might want.

  10. Add support for Project Nami / MSSQL

    Currently Tribe Events uses several SQL commands that are not supported by MS SQL, causing errors to appear in the admin dashboard when the plugin is installed on a Project Nami instance. (Project Nami is a fork of Wordpress that uses MSSQL instead of MySQL.) Using the $wpdb API instead of raw SQL or a custom abstraction layer will enable this plugin to be used on Nami installs as well as traditional MySQL environments.

  11. Show Date (Tuesday Oct 2) as Featured Image if no featured image assigned.

    Is there a way to show Date as Featured image instead of grey calendar icon?

  12. Option for "all day" events placement in one day page

    Please add an option to put "All day" event at top or bottom in One Day page.

    There are events that starts at a specified hour, but actually they are always put after "One day" events
