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. Community Events: Remove Image Upload Option

    We have a client that does not like that users are able to upload images as it is crowding their media folder and server overall.

    Is there an option to remove the image upload option, either currently or scheduled for a future maintenance release?

    Thank you!

      • Add $£ Advert Space On Each Event Page For Stallholder Logos

        Advert spaces for stallholders to pay to feature their business logo and stall location on the event page they are attending keeping adverts relevant to visitors and bringing in some income!

        This will bring money into Community Events - monetising each individual community event page. Not a widget as the sidebar/widget areas cannot be customised and made relevant to individual events!

        [Click here to feature your business at this event + 3 logo spaces horizontally and free text description: for example, Find me: Main Hall left-side Stand 37. Clicking placeholder advert takes stallholder to payment gateway].

        • Event Statistics for Community Organisers

          I’m an entrepreneur, and I use the community events plugin to enable clubs and bars in London to list their events on my website. The problem is I find it hard to convince them to do so, because the community events plugin doesn’t display any visual or meaningful stats, e.g. how many visitors landed on their individual event pages (should be a stat), how many people bought tickets over time (should be visual like a line chart), how many people abandon the cart etc.

          Most other ticket platforms show stats for event creators, and it provides valuable information for organisers…

          • Option to have community events in main view sidebar

            This is regarding the main event view (https://example.com/events). This would be an optional layout configured within Community settings.

            For logged in users, default showing sidebar with their community events (My Events), and button to add additional events, with way to edit events in My Events.

            For non-logged in users, default showing full width main, with Community Events button (or similar) to show or hide sidebar.

            For any users allow sidebar to be hidden, giving full width to main view (e.g., Month events).

            • Customize Community Events Endpoints

              Would be great to have the ability to change the slugs/endpoints for the pages generated by the Community Events Plugin.
              Even simply adding a filter to the multiple `$router->add_route` lines and the `communityRewriteSlug()` in Tribe\Main.php would go a long way to helping devs better integrate Community Events into their sites.

              The most obvious use case is for sites building a User Panel: the ability to move the user's events list to my-account/events, (/add, etc), but any site that has multiple user actions that need to be managed (WooCommerce, BuddyPress/BBPress, the myriad of Directory, Classified, Buy Ads, subscription management, etc) would…

              • Allow editing of Venue/Organizer creation boxes

                Currently it is not possible to edit the Venue/Organizer meta boxes that display when creating a new Venue/Org on the Community Events Submit an Event form.

                Although we can perform a template override on [our-theme]/tribe-events/community/modules/organizer-fields.php, editing this file does not control what appears on the event creation screen (apparently this is actually coming from wp-content/plugins/the-events-calendar/src/admin-views/create-organizer-fields.php). Thus, it is not possible to change the Venue or Organizer meta boxes (e.g. the order of the fields) that appear on the Community Events Submit an Event form.

                Please change this so that we can edit these areas of the form (as we can…

                  • Add the ability to have multiple days for one event type. Would be very helpful for weekend events and would display correctly.

                    The only way currently to enter an weekend long event is to add 2 events, one on Saturday and one on Sunday. Other wise it does not display correctly and confusing to the reader. You desperately need a weekend even option with different recurring options. I see many people are asking for this. Thank you!

                    • Optimize / clean up event submit form by removing selectable options

                      A switch in the settings to hide or turn off the follwowing fields in the event submit form would be useful:
                      d) Timezone (not necessary if there are only events of one country/region)
                      e) Recurring events (not every calendar needs them)

                      • If created via Community Events then show user who created it, as well as some information from their profile.

                        It would be great to see who created the event and a little about them when viewing the event via the event's page!

                            Now, community events (CE) all get merged into the Main event calendar. We have no control to speak of to keep the two separate. I can call just CE, or I can call everything BUT CE, but there is no simple way just remove CEs from the from the MC. All your filters are -inclusive- and you have no -exclude- filters. If our categories change (as they do) with the current setup we also have to edit every -inclusive- call.

                            2) there is no way for force a category on CEs. Folks adding a new ce have the option of…

                              • We need a possibility to block some Categories for Community Organizers (with account or anonymous).

                                By blocking a category for some organizers or anonymous submitter we would still have the possibility to create exclusive calendars which will only show the events created by the admin.
                                I would love to see that as an option.

                                  • Add entry field for Event Excerpt to the Community Events event submission screen to improve look of tooltip

                                    I am using Community Events to have non-admin people submit their events for course listings.
                                    The tooltip for these events look awful as the HTML is stripped out of the event description when the wp_trim_words functions is run.
                                    I realize that this has already been addressed by not stripping the HTML from the excerpt of the event, however entry of the excerpt is not available in the event submission form in the Community Events plugin.
                                    On the event submission form in Community Events please add the Excerpt as a entry field.

                                      • Enable latitude longitude for the community events front end submission form.

                                        We have a lot of events that don’t have a proper address, and I’d like to offer them the option to enter those in if they know them. Even better to offer a link to a tool to find them out. These fields are available in the backend for events, so I don’t know why it shouldn’t be for the front end. I feel like there should just an option to click on from the settings, rather than having to create a customized version of the front end template.
