        Hi Steph! We can certainly take that on as a general point for all our future development, but I'd be interested to know if there was one or more of our plugins (and/or one or more views/screens) that you were particularly interested in, here. Thanks :-)

          Thank you for a great idea Heinz.

          If you are not selling tickets using Event Tickets Plus, then this is already possible. You can use the Event Cost field for the event to specify the currency and cost for each event on the Add New event screen. While this field can be hidden automatically at times, this extension can keep it available at all times.

          If you are selling tickets with Event Tickets Plus then we are somewhat limited by the ecommerce platforms. For instance, WooComerce only supports one currency for the entire store. However, as that article mentions there are some independent third parties that attempt to add this feature to WooCommerce. If you are using one and have had success with it, please let us know what it is in the comments below.

          Cheers!

            Thanks Brad! The first issue should have been resolved already - but the broader point you make about adding the link at all is still valid: we'll treat that as a bug and aim to resolve it in an upcoming maintenance release.

              Thank you guys so much for your feedback. Work on this is about 50% complete.

              However, when we reanalyzed our priorities we realized that some of our new features, like year view, should be put on hold for now to make time for some higher impact endeavors. We are currently focused on bug fixes, architecture improvements, and polishing our current UI. While these improvements are not as “flashy” as new features like year view, they are helping a significantly greater portion of our users than this sort of new feature. Thus, we have to focus on these for a while longer. Once those tasks are complete we will have some extra time for exciting things like finishing year view.

              Cheers!

              Howdy Henryk,

              Good question. We do not yet have a beta available.

              When year view was about half way complete we had our priorities shift a little bit. We are currently focused on bug fixes, architecture improvements, and polishing our current UI. While these improvements are not as "flashy" as new features like year view, they are helping a significantly greater portion of our users than this sort of new feature. Thus, we have to focus on these for a while longer. Once those tasks are complete we will have some extra time for things like finishing year view.

              I will update the status of this to more accurately convey that it is on hold for now, but work will resume as soon as we have time.

              Cheers!

                  Howdy Anonymous,

                  This unfortunately only gets about 1 vote every 3 months. Our more popular feature requests can easily get that in a day. Thus this is naturally lower priority.

                  To be up front, I doubt it will ever get implemented as a native feature. We get many new feature requests every day, more than we could ever possibly build. And so we rely on various metric to prioritize which ones will actually get built. This one scores low in our metrics.

                  This might already be possible with third party add-on plugin. Have you tried using any of the HTML to PDF plugins available? For instance, DK PDF claims to be able to support custom post types, and can convert their pages to PDF:
                  https://wordpress.org/plugins/dk-pdf/

                  Might that work for you?

                  Cheers!

                    This is a great idea and we really appreciate you sharing it. It is very possibly something we could build as an extension or an enhancement we could include in of our feature updates. We will continue keeping an eye on this, and slot it as soon as we can amongst our hundreds of other great feature ideas.

                    Cheers!

                    Howdy Anonymous,

                    Before responding I just wanted to say I really appreciate your passion for getting this feature on the roadmap. That's a lot of research and I am stoked that your shared it.

                    The truth is we have hundreds of feature requests we would love to implement, and this is one of them. Some of those feature requests demand many months worth of work, all for one feature request! In total we probably have enough feature ideas to keep us busy for 5-10 years, assuming we ignored every new feature request that comes in during those years.

                    Obviously we can't do them all, so we have to prioritize. We have many metrics that feed in to prioritizing. One of them is votes, another is forum topics. And while it's hard to quantify, we definitely try and gauge people's passion for a feature as well, passion such as yours. There are many other factors we have to consider, and after considering them all we build out roadmaps. As I stated a couple weeks back, this is something we're keeping an eye on. It gets on average about 2 votes per month. Yet we have feature requests that get 2 votes almost every day. And sadly, 6 forum topics over 4 years is also quite low, though I'm sure we could dig up a few more.

                    All the same votes are not our only metric. In spite of the relatively low public interest in this feature, we are genuinely hopeful that we can find time to build it. It all comes down to when. Right now our current roadmap goes out about a year, and this isn't on it. Hopefully it will sneak in some day soon.

                    Please let me know if you have any questions. Cheers!

                    - Brook

                      Thank you all for sharing your feedback. It is very informative to know folks wish to use that calendar.

                      In the interest of collecting more information about this, would any of you be willing to share the RSS feeds you have that contain events? We would like to examine the format these events are in, and see if there is any commonalities between them. Unfortunately RSS feeds do not have fields like “start date” or “end date”, or any other event related fields. Thus, it is probable that there are a wide range of formats being used for sharing events over RSS. We will need to examine them to better understand what it will take to build this feature.

                      Cheers!

                      Thanks for your continued feedback here. We would love to serve all of your needs. To help with this please share a link to an event feed that you would like to import, if you can.

                      So far we only have one feed shared with us. We will need a number more to better understand y'alls needs. The one shared thus far appears to put the event's startdate within the <pubDate> field, and it contains no end dates. Thus, any event imported from it would not contain end dates. The only fields that could be imported would be the title, start date, and description. If this sounds like the behavior you would like to see, please let us know!

                      Thanks for the feedback.

                      Right at this time we're going to leave the status for this request as "Needs More Votes" - simply because while it has already gathered quite a lot of support Gerlando does a great job of highlighting that it is the sort of thing that would likely require some level of developer-expertise for users to take advantage of.

                      So - while we're not discounting the idea - we would like to see really strong support before moving forward with the concept.

                      Thanks for the suggestion. We would like to see more votes on this and not sure how feasible it would be to import events by rss as we need the start and end dates always formatted the same way. I think more likely we will end up using the WordPress REST API to do something similar once it is integrated into WordPress. But if enough people vote on this, it is certainly something we would look into.

                      Howdy guys,

                      Is the goal here to import events that are published via RSS from other sources? Or is the goal to include other RSS feeds within the events RSS feed, which can typically be found at: yourdomain.com/events/feed/ ?

                        While a bit of a roundabout solution, one possibility is to get the iCal export link and then run the .ics file through a converter such as https://icsconvert.appspot.com/

                                  Hello all,

                                  Perhaps adding a third-part plugin tying-in to the built-in WordPress comments functionality could work ?

                                  Here a few plugins that seem promising:
                                  https://wordpress.org/plugins/comment-rating-field-plugin/
                                  https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-review/

                                  Let us know if that helps.

                                  Cool idea! Would this be for before the event, or only after?

                                    Hey folks!

                                    We're still looking into this feature and we can see that's gotten quite a few votes a long the way -- we are indeed interested in digging in further!

                                    One thing we're struggling with is finding the exact audience for embedding calendars on other sites. The reason being that we recently released a new service called Event Aggregator that allows any site using The Events Calendar to automatically import events from other sites, including other calendars using The Events Calendar:

                                    https://theeventscalendar.com/wordpress-event-aggregator/

                                    That said, we've been trying to define other use cases where importing events using Event Aggregator may not cut it and where embedding the calendar would be a better solution.

                                    Here are a few scenarios we're thinking about to give an examples:

                                    As an event promoter, I would like to allow my website visitors to embed the calendar I manage in WordPress on other calendars so that the events gain a wider audience than my site can do alone.

                                    As a Community Events user, I would like to allow those who submit events on my website to embed a filtered view of the calendar on their sites so that they can promote their events on their site as well as mine.

                                    As a band manager, I would like to embed the calendar of concerts we manage in The Events Calendar on other sites and places where I promote the band so that I can increase visibility of our shows.

                                    As an administrator at a university with multiple campuses, I would like to embed the calendar of our main university site onto the sites for our various campuses, most of which are not currently managed in WordPress and are unlikely to do so, so that I can consistently manage one calendar across all sites.

                                    Can anyone either confirm the those examples as legitimate use cases or offer your own summaries for us to consider? If you offer your own summaries, please follow this format:

                                    As a _____, I want to be able to _____ so that _____.

                                    Thanks so much!

                                    I would think an iframe is possible for the time being, at least for a stripped-down version of the calendar.

                                        While our tickets may not have functionality like WooCommerce's variable products or grouped products (or maybe your idea is slightly different than either of those), you might be able to benefit from this available snippet: https://gist.github.com/cliffordp/5a769159a2bf64f0b1b1dbbde243d109

                                            Hey Matt,

                                            It is actually a combination of both.

                                            We are looking at API updates as they are coming and it currently looks way more promising than it did initially (based on the latest API documentation: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/graph-api/reference/v2.7/event).

                                            That being said, more votes usually bumps the priority of feature requests, so keep them coming :-)

                                            Cheers

                                            That is a great question Jeremy. We are going to investigate their setup and see. It is entirely possible they have a special agreement with Facebook.

                                            Right now the Facebook Graph API leaves no room for interpretation: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/graph-api/reference/v2.2/event

                                            > You cannot create events via the Graph API.

                                            But they have recently updated their API. And we actually have an investigation going on right now to see if that will change anything and allow us more capability. I just added looking into ticketfly as well, in case they have found a work around.

                                            Cheers!
