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. Add option to show the featured image on the map view

    It would be great to have an option that would allow us to display the event image for the event in map view in the event pop up.

    Or it would be nice to at least have an easy way to format the popup that is displayed when a pin is clicked.

    • Recurring Event Featured View

      We have a lot of recurring events. I'd love a master single event view template that could be linked to as a "Featured" view. This would look similar to the single event template except instead of a single date, it's a master featured recurring event page that has the date info for the series in one post.

      Basically instead of a date like January 20 (single event date) it could say "Weekly on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday" or "through March 15"

      This helps big time if we are sharing events on social media or other websites so that we…

      • Multiple ticket prices for an event

        Permit multiple ticket prices for a single event: For instance:
        Regular Admission, Premium Seating, Senior (or Student Discount), Members (or Kids under 12) free.

            • Add option (maybe extension) to use abbreviations in US & Canadian state/province names

              Option (maybe an extension) to use abbreviations in US & Canadian state/province names: New Hampshire (NH), South Carolina (SC), British Columbia (BC), Prince Edward Island (PE).
              Many websites (including ours) use the abbreviations instead of the default full state name, which is a clumsy workaround and results in a dotted line under SC, BC, etc. (unable to reproduce this here)

              • Add dates to tooltip in "Display all events with the same venue" extension

                The tooltip now displays:

                • Make "Events Calendar Pro" a Standalone Plugin

                  Over the years, The Events Calendar Pro (paid plugin) has become too dependent on The Events Calendar (free plugin). That is, you cannot use TEC Pro without installing TEC first.

                  Recommend converting The Events Calendar Pro into a standalone plugin for the following reasons:

                  (1) Less bloatware.
                  (2) Fewer plugins to manage on the back-end.
                  (3) Fewer plugin conflicts to worry about.
                  (4) Easier to troubleshoot plugin conflicts or problems in the back-end.
                  (5) Opportunity to streamline (make more efficient) each plugin (independently from each other).
                  (6) Last, but not the least, a simpler code and faster processing time which…

                      • Add "location" to Venue in Events Calendar

                        SEO wise, the Events Calendar prevents rich card feature from google. It's just missing a value for "location" under venue. Unfortunately, there is no "location" field, just Venue.

                        • Ensure content in ajax requests can be json encoded before json encoding.

                          In version 4.6.20.1 of The Events Calendar, ajax data is not sanitized for non-UTF-8 content prior to json encoding, allowing the request to silently fail.

                          The list class (the-events-calendar/src/Tribe/Template/List.php) has an apply_filters call, but does not capture the return variable, preventing us from solving this ourselves.

                          Ensure the content can be json_encoded:
                          $response['html'] = mb_convert_encoding($response['html'], 'UTF-8');

                          Or correct the apply filters call:
                          $response = apply_filters( 'tribe_events_ajax_response', $response );

                            The following accessibility issues have been identified:

                            Color
                            – Link text – green link text on white background provides insufficient contrast (NOTE: this issue is caused by the theme rather than the plugin per se) (Hemingway theme).
                            – On the “Welcome” page, on the video, the headings lack sufficient color contrast (blue text on black).
                            – On the “Add New Event” page, in the “Date & Time” section, the hint appears to lack sufficient color contrast (light gray on white).
                            – On the “Tags” page, the “Add New Tag” button seems to provide insufficient color contrast (white text on blue). …

                            • Separate data away from wordpress post meta database tables into independent tables

                              A giant way to speed up the performance of events calendar plugin: store the data in dedicated database tables instead of wordpress' post meta.

                              Woocommerce just did this and I think all plugin developers who potentially have a lot of data to store should, too:

                              They’re claiming a 30% boost but I ran some tests after migrating test data on a development site with your plugins and I easily got even better performance increase benchmarks! This is a really good idea that you guys would greatly benefit from implementing because the more events that are stored using the current…

                                      I'd like to be able to create a set of recurrence rules, with both regular occurrences and exclusions - and then save them as a custom named ruleset that I can apply to another event.

                                      We have many events that run on a regular basis outside of school term-times. We can manually exclude the dates that fall within school holidays, but it would be a massive timesaver to only have to do this once and save it as for example "school holidays 2018" so that we can apply this custom set of rules to any other event. This has broader…

                                      • Resize pictures automatically and speed up pages

                                        The events calendar has options to show events in widgets and in the calendar. There it always uses the standard wordpress pictures and does not resize them. This is a problem for users, as they have to load a lot of data. It also reduces the page rank at Google.
                                        Therefore I want the plugin to resize the images automatically to save data and rank better in Google.

                                        • Add unique classes to each month title in span.tribe-events-list-separator-month

                                          I’m using JS to add the name of the month as a class to the span.tribe-events-list-separator-month

                                          The goal is to use custom graphics for the month headings instead of text. The JS I’m using is not very foolproof, and only fires when the page is finished loading. I had to hide the “next/prev events” buttons, because they reload the page with ajax, so my JS doesn’t get triggered, and the month headings then “disappear”.

                                          If that span had a class with the month name or month number in it already, I wouldn’t need the JS, and it would work perfectly.
