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. elementor

    Elementor is the biggest thing to hit Wordpress and is growing in popularity and ability on day by day basis.

    It's time that Tribe should make Elementor a priority for easy integration and allow the non-intermediate users the ability to adapt their websites.

    I am sure a simple widget plugin to bring in the relevant meta data would suffice to start

  2. RSS Category Filter

    Ability to filter RSS feed by category.

    We use ECPro & Tickets Plus to manage all our events (a mixture of public and private). Would like to be able to filter by category so that we can easily market events to people interested in a particular type of training course via integration with our ESP. At present it's unusable as using the RSS feed provides links to private training courses and doesn't allow us to target people with courses that might be relevant to them.

    I have seen admin comments that other technologies are being introduced but no further information…

  4. "Move to trash events older than" setting - option to make this user defined.

    We need a way to have past events moved to the trash, but 3 months is too long of a time period. It would be much more useful if that field was user definable. Even 1 day would be better... but an option to trash events that are over would be a better option for us.

  6. 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…

  7. update the body class if the calendar is used as the homepage

    Right now, if the events calendar is set as the homepage, the body class tags do not contain a 'home' identifier. This means themes which rely on that tag to apply formatting only to the main page will not work.

    I'm not 100% sure that's the case, but it seems that wordpress relies on the first body tag being 'home' to detect if it's the homepage or not, and the calendar simply won't add that tag when I set it to the homepage.

  8. Implement automatic redirects for events that have passed and been deleted

    We run events across the country and when these events pass they are deleted and return a 404 page when crawled by Google. I suggest you implement an option within the settings for an event to "redirect to this page after deleted" and then a field to input the redirect url.

  9. Conditional tag that returns true for any view related to Tribe's event plugins

    There are several conditional tags that check if certain views are being displayed like "tribe_is_month()", "tribe_is_day()", "tribe_is_map()", "tribe_is_event()", "tribe_is_venue()" etc.

    But if you need to check if _any_ of the event related views are displayed, you need to combine many of this checks in one huge functions.

    There are several examples available online that try to solve this (http://pastebin.com/c4yujaZC, https://gist.github.com/jo-snips/2415009, https://clicknathan.com/web-design/tribe-events-calendar-conditional-tag/ etc.) but they are incomplete (not covering all views) and "cumbersome" to use because every "tribe_is_..." functions should be wrapped with `function_exists()`.

    I believe a function that returns true for _all_ event related views should be…

  12. Please provide an option (maybe an extension) to use abbreviations in US & Canadian state/province names

    Please provide an 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).

  16. 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 );

  17. Meet accessibility criteria

    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). …

  18. 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:
    https://wptavern.com/woocommerce-custom-product-tables-plugin-now-in-beta-boasts-30-faster-page-loads

    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…
