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 ...

  1. 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).

            • 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). …

              • Add option to reorder zip and city for certain countries

                In quite a few european countries, the usual (and also "correct" in terms of what postal services expect on an envelope) way to write addresses is like this:

                Venue Name
                Street 23
                12345 City
                Country

                While the notation of street and number ("123, Park Avenue" vs. "Hauptstraße 17") isn’t an issue (since it’s only one field in the database), addresses like "Berlin, 12345 Deutschland" (instead of the correct "12345 Berlin, Deutschland" are quite disturbing.

                I am aware that src/views/modules/address.php could be customized by the user, but I would strongly suggest to add an option to reorder zip and city. This…

                • Reusable Event Template

                  In addition to being able to define a "ticket template" as described in another feature idea (https://tribe.uservoice.com/forums/195723-feature-ideas/suggestions/3825421-reusable-ticket-defaults-profiles-as-per-venues-a), I would suggest that this same functionality be extended to events themselves as well as tickets.

                  We currently use the Advanced Content Templates plugin (https://www.advancedcontenttemplates.com) for this purpose but it is limited. For example, Advanced Content Templates can't:

                  - insert the event category/categories
                  - insert the event tag(s)
                  - insert pre-defined a ticket(s)

                  Having a templating system for events and tickets would be a real time-saver for those who hold the same or similar events multiple times.

                  Thanks!

                  • customize color for tribe-events-list-separator-month

                    I would like to be able to customize the color for the class : tribe-events-list-separator-month

                    Being able to change the BG color/styling would be very handy indeed for a site that doesn't use white as it's BG.

                    Thanks!

                      Be able to change the colors on the tribe_events_list shortcode date graphic and event title without having to use custom CSS or other coding. Or provide a support answer for this issue with the CSS required so that we can easily grab, modify and paste into our website custom CSS.

                        • Add more features to the customizer

                          Currently the customizer only allow for adding colors etc. it would be so useful to be able to use the customizer to change the tile/font/etc of a calendar view (month, week, etc.) without having to deal with css and code.

                          Such a simple thing should not be so hard to implement!

                            For a better SEO friendly URL structure I suggest the customization of the permalink structure including the category for the single event and maybe the date of th event too.

                              Greetings,
                              I am writing this to give you a suggestion to develop an Android and iOS app for your Event Plugin. I am a freelancer an often use this plugin for my clients as I love it. Unfortunately, Many Clients do not want to login to their dashboard to add an event. They often say if there is any way to add events from mobile phone or if they can add an event on Google Calendar, it should be added on Website Events page too on auto. So I face such feedback. Today I thought to give you a suggestion…

                                Allow users to save, star or favourite events. So they can plan which events they would like to attend. This would be a huge value-add to the end user where there are a lot of events to choose from and they may want to attend a few.

                                • 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.

                                    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.

                                      • Add true Subscribe Functionality for iCal & Google

                                        Downloading an iCal file is NOT THE SAME as a true subscribe to calendar function where users calendars are updated automatically with new events, changes to events and so forth. It's a total disappointment to find out that the other suggestion was closed when it the suggested feature was clearly not implemented. Having a static download is actually worse because users think they've subscribed and never get updates and have no reason to believe that they aren't getting the latest info.

                                          We are planning to add this functionality when we have some open development resources to complete it. Thank you all for your patience!

                                          This snippet changes the “iCal Export” buttons to be webcal:// links, which suggests to calendar applications that they should subscribe instead of downloading the .ics file.

                                          It requires The Events Calendar version 4.6.5 or newer.

                                          Allow the map view to be set as either satellite or road map, instead of defaulting to road map.
