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.

      • In "single-event/php", the 'back to all events' link includes a hard-coded double left angle quote. This should be wrapped in a span element

        In "single-event/php", the 'back to all events' link (line 28) includes a hard-coded double left angle quote («). This should be wrapped in a span element, like the next and prev event links do, so it can be hidden via CSS. At the moment the only way to remove it is to dupe the whole template.

          • Remember sorting preference in backend

            When you sort by date in admin backend, it doesn't remember your sorting preferences. Advanced Post Manager doesn't have an option to set a default sorting order too.

            The original order (start date, descrending) is not great for me because I rarely need to work on events from 2020 and I'd much rather have ascending order.

            Option to hide events past ending date (and remembering the settings) would be a nice feature on top of that.

            • custom coloring for shortcode tribe_events_list

              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!

                Thanks!

                • Allow HTML markup in Additional Fields

                  It would be very helpful to be able to use HTML markup and styling in text Additional Fields. I wanted to enter a set of links as a styled list, the result was a string of comma-separated links.

                  • Events categories and events dates in the permalink structure

                    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.

                    • Allow Featured Events to Display at the Top of the Event List Widget

                      The display from the Event List widget looks better when there is a Featured Event with image at the top. Therefore, I would like an option to show the next Featured Event (or two or three) at top, followed by the non-featured events.

                      I can almost do this now by using two Event List widgets, one above the other. The top one can be set to "limit to featured events only." If the the bottom widget could be set to "limit to non-featured events," that would do the trick.

                      • Editable delay for tooltips

                        The tooltips for events show up very, very quickly. Practically instaneously. It’d be great if we could easily edit that to provide some delay. Otherwise, on calendars with many events, moving your mouse across the month view is chaotic.

                        • Add links to the top of the calendar for previous/next months

                          My background is in usability (I have a degree in Human Factors Psychology). One of the things that I was surprised not see in the calendar view was a set of links at the TOP of the calendar for previous/next months. I see them now at the bottom, but as a user looking to go to the next month, and with the bottom of the calendar cut off on my screen, I was confused for a bit when trying to figure out how to get to the next month.

                          It would be fine to have the links at the bottom,…

                            Currently, the options allow you to use your WordPress timezone OR local timezones for each event. None of these options will automatically update the date and time of your event based on the user's local timezone.

                            • inside the widget: show only when registration is open

                              It would be awesome to add option inside the widget: show only when registration is open.
                              It would be helpful when you have several events and couple of them got registration already closed.

                                  Would like to include the "Powered by Events Calendar Pro" link on my client's calendars (to share the love and tell the world how awesome the plugin is) however, the link needs to open in a new tab rather than replace my clients calendar page.

                                    • 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.

                                        • Custom ICS Feed URL (permalink)

                                          We should be able to make custom permalinks for ICS feeds, so, instead of:
                                          http://wpshindig.com/events/map/?action=tribe_geosearch&tribe_paged=1&tribe_event_display=map&featured=false&tribe-bar-geoloc-lat=51.5073509&tribe-bar-geoloc-lng=-0.12775829999998223&tribe-bar-geoloc=London&ical=1&tribe_display=map

                                          We should be able to specify .ICS export links for certain custom filter, like:
                                          http://wpshindig.com/eventsfeeds/yearlylondonevents.ics

                                          This is a much nicer link and easier to distribute in posters and QR codes.
