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 support forums. If you use our free core plugin, you can post in our forum on WordPress.org.

I suggest you ...

  1. Integrate with Headway theme

    At the present time Event Calendar Pro munges the Blogroll and query filters for the Blogroll whenusing Headway development environment. Activated, it causes posts to be listed in random order, and if a Headway query filter is used, it stops working altogether. It works fine when no query filter is used but still causes the Blogroll to appear in random order.

    • Performers at event

      Hi Tribe team,

      We run a multi-event single establishment events website and we have different musicians and actors, dancers, singers etc.that come here.

      We would love the ability to associate the singers/musician etc. with the event.

      Rather than having to paste in the blurb of them every time they are here, we can associate which performers are associated with which day of events (especially recurring events).

      IS this possible without the need for a new feature or is it in the pipeline?

      Thanks

      Mark

        • Make a default template for dark sites

          This calendar is, by default, compatible with light themed sites. I suggest you to make a default theme aiming sites that uses dark patterns.

          • Specific Roles/Capabilities for Event ticket checkin

            Setting capabilities for The Events Calendar and add-ons (such as Wootickets) to an event specific scope would allow better control over distributing tasks for events. Would most useful for Wootickets, and other ticketing add-ons, so that the Event organizer or whoever is in charge of the event itself could be able to check attendees in, without being given access to more content on the site. Current, viewing attendees requires an edit_posts capability, which opens up a lot more access than should be necessary for that task.

            • Compatiblity with Page Widgets and similar plugins

              At the moment if you add an event calendar widget to a widget area from the post itself, using a plugin such as Page Widgets (http://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-page-widget/), the category selector doesn't work, because, not expecting to be loaded on the post edit screen, it doesn't load all its scripts.

              This can be fixed if you want to make your plugin compatible, by modifying line 18 of /events-calendar-pro/lib/widget-calendar.class.php from

              if ( $hook != ‘widgets.php’ )

              to

              if ( $hook != ‘widgets.php’ && $hook != ‘post.php’ )

              Now everything works. I realise that if you were to implement this you’d want…

                Set up ticket bundles - for example selling a All Access Pass (all events) or a Pass for a couple of events that provides either tickets for each event and/or for limited seat events a count per pass purchased towards each single event included in the pass.

                • Improve accessibility of event forms

                  For admins and users:

                  1-When a form element is required but the Label does not contain the word "required", it will not be spoken by a screen reader. Add aria-required="true" to the input tagging. This will inform the screen reader that the specified form field is required. Example: <input name="name" id="name" aria-required="true">

                  2- When keyboard focus is set back to the form element with JavaScript after an incorrect response, the feedback message will not be read by a screen reader. Give the feedback message a role="alert" when it displays. This causes the feedback message to be immediately read by the…

                    Google and Outlook do this in their calendars and it helps make the 'calendar' view more user friendly to see one block that spans 3 days rather than 3 individual entries for the same event

                          Hi, it would be great to add Jalali and Hijri Calendar to the core as an option. because they use different types of date.

                            When doing a keyword search when month/calendar view is default, it would be much more user friendly to display a list if search results of all future events rather than just searching and displaying those (if any) in the current month and having to scroll through.

                              In cases where you don't upload or don't select a featured image for an event, use the organizer's featured image.

                              Many themes allow you to use a post's featured image in different scenarios: home page sliders, widgets, archive pages etc.

                              • Import "Get Tickets" link from Facebook event posts

                                I purchased the Import Facebook events plug in and was shocked to find it doesn't import the "Get Tickets" link from the Facebook event, according to this forum.

                                This is a major disappointment, IMHO. This function should be added or else the lack of this function should be disclosed in the plug in description. It defeats the purpose of this plug in.

                                The whole idea of the plug in is to support automation and prevent duplicate data entry. Yet, I have to enter the link to buy tickets manually on my WP site for each event? Doesn't make any sense.

                                    About the filters, is it possible to save filter settings for the calendar per user for when a user visits the site next time, so that the user does not need to set all the filters again every time?

                                    If that is not possible it would be a pretty awesome feature.

                                      My customer has a very large database of events (currently about 35.000). Many of them are recurring events, with quite some recurring over several weeks each day! This makes it hard:
                                      - to identify the actual event (as in the understanding of our client the event is WHAT happens and not WHEN, so differentiation by dates and showing all of the does not make much sense
                                      - to keep an overview of all current/coming events, as basically you have 1 same event there over several pages.
                                      - edit the right (first occurrence) of the event, if something changes later.

                                      This…

                                      • Hide http:// from Event Website URL text

                                        More of a bug ...

                                        Under Details, the website has the "http://&quot; automatically included. The Organizer does not display this by default. I suggest it not be displayed across the board.

                                        • Hide weekend days

                                          Using the “Filter Bar” displaying to the left of the calendar the calendar itself will gets very cramped. An option to "Hide Weekend DAys" would help this.

                                          “Event Espresso” has this on/off option.
