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.

I suggest you ...

    • Jalali calendar instead of Gregorian calendar

      Hi, it would be great to add Jalali and Hijri Calendar to the core as an option. because they use different types of date.

      • Compatiblity with Page Widgets and similar plugins

        At the moment if you add an event calendar widget to a widget area from the post itself, using a plugin such as Page Widgets (http://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-page-widget/), the category selector doesn't work, because, not expecting to be loaded on the post edit screen, it doesn't load all its scripts.

        This can be fixed if you want to make your plugin compatible, by modifying line 18 of /events-calendar-pro/lib/widget-calendar.class.php from

        if ( $hook != ‘widgets.php’ )

        to

        if ( $hook != ‘widgets.php’ && $hook != ‘post.php’ )

        Now everything works. I realise that if you were to implement this you’d want…

        • Use Organizer's Featured Image as the Event's Featured Image

          In cases where you don't upload or don't select a featured image for an event, use the organizer's featured image.

          Many themes allow you to use a post's featured image in different scenarios: home page sliders, widgets, archive pages etc.

          • Remember end user filter settings

            About the filters, is it possible to save filter settings for the calendar per user for when a user visits the site next time, so that the user does not need to set all the filters again every time?

            If that is not possible it would be a pretty awesome feature.

            • WP-Admin listing of venues and organizers with more columns/data

              I would like to see more data fields in the admin dashboard listings for my venues and organizers, such as:

              venues: address, city, hyperlink, phone number
              organizers: name, email, web page, phone

              Is that already possible?

              • Add an XML importer

                Enable importing events/venues/organizers via XML (either file or URL, preferably URL). Some great event feeds are available in XML only.

                • Create black out dates for community submitted events, such as holidays

                  Allow for an event to have a "priority" that can override & block out other events on that day

                  As an example ... I have a fitness center client that has 40 recurring events and they fall on the same day of the week as Christmas. It would be great to set up "Christmas" to be the main event that 1 day and override all the other events that are recurring so we don't have to modify the 40 events because they are closed on that holiday.

                  • Choose Which Events Show on Blog, Rather than All or None

                    Maybe you could see a window with a list of all the events, and check which ones to add to the blog, or you could choose an event category whose events would show on the blog.

                    • Allow different page layouts for calendar views and single events

                      I would love if the calendar was one page layout (in my case full width) and an event page a different one (in my case with a sidebar). The calendar needs lots of room so it makes it sense to display it full width but for an event page I would like to show ads and other content in a sidebar.

                        • Add ability to Tweet event posts when published

                          Hook into the WordPress JetPack Publicize plugin or to WP-to-Twitter plugin to tweet event posts when they are published. This should hook to the WP Shortlinks feature (wp.me) or to Twitter's shortener (t.co) so links can easily be included in the tweet.
