        XML is an incredibly flexible format that can be used for all kinds of things, so we would ideally identify one or two common "flavors" of event-focused XML first of all.

        If you're interested in this feature, please help us by sharing examples of XML feeds that you would like to use. Thanks!

          Hi there! Just wanted to note that using the post Duplicator plugin to duplicate events that have tickets in it, also duplicates the event attendees which might be undesirable in many cases.

          Thanks Lauren for flagging this.

          @Jim We are sorry to hear that this third party plugin does not work well in combination with the SiteOrigin plugin.

          In reality, you could use any plugin that duplicates custom post types.
          You might have to try a few to find one that works for your situation.

          You might start with this one: https://wordpress.org/plugins/post-duplicator/

          Dear Pam,

          Thank you for your input on this topic.

          As you can imagine, we get a ton of new feature requests every day.
          Even though we are super grateful for such an engaged client base, we unfortunately cannot code fast enough to implement all of them.

          As such, we have to prioritize new features based on User Votes and feedback.

          It is also worth noting that until this becomes a part of our plugins, you can absolutely use a third-party free plugin to duplicate events.

          There are many of them out there (that support custom post types), but here's one apparently specifically intended for our plugins :-)

          https://wordpress.org/plugins/duplicate-tec-event/

          Cheers and Thank you for your understanding!

          If anyone here does need help getting this solution to work, please open a support topic. The Post Duplicator plugin forums can give you in depth help with that plugin. Our forums can help provide more general advice along with specific details on our Custom Post Type if needed.

          Thanks!

            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.

            Please reference https://theeventscalendar.com/knowledgebase/implementing-custom-code-snippets/ for how to implement custom code snippets and let us know how this works for you.

              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 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!
                - Brook

                  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/

                  And here’s a code snippet specific to the Twenty Sixteen theme that may be a good starting point for your own theme’s printer-friendly styling customization: https://gist.github.com/cliffordp/edec7dff1e2d92333682759d0b8de7de

                  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!
                  - Brook

                  This resource may also be helpful (a starting point) for you to add custom CSS to your site, especially if running Twenty Sixteen theme: https://gist.github.com/cliffordp/edec7dff1e2d92333682759d0b8de7de

                    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!
                      - The Modern Tribe Support Team

                      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/ ?

                        Thank you for clarifying. One possible solution that you can implement right now is to click "Screen Options" in the upper right, and change the records per page to a large number such as 999. Then all of the records will be shown on the one page, and you can use your browsers find function to search through them. On Windows you would press Ctrl + F to open up the find, on Mac its Cmd + F. Type in "joe", and it will help you jump straight to any records containing that word.

                        Does that sound like a useful temporary solution? We have many popular feature requests, and so it could be a while before this gets implemented. Hence why I am interested in providing you with a solution that works now.

                        Cheers!

                            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?

                              We’re continuing our work on a huge revamp of recurring events that would pave the way for recurring tickets. Additionally we’re working on backend improvements to tickets to support this kind of complicated functionality. Please continue to share your use cases in comments so we can strategize the scope of this long-awaited feature.

                              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

                                Per https://theeventscalendar.com/knowledgebase/embedding-calendar-views-tribe_events-shortcode/#common, only 1 category can be entered in the shortcode.

                                I'd like to be able to do something like this:
                                `[tribe_events categories="bbq,holidays,community" and="true"]`
                                (since the default would be `and=false` which means OR, not AND)

                                Another name for this shortcode argument might be `filter="and"` or something else.

                                    Thank you for the feedback Denon.

                                    You make a valid point about the snippets. We are working on improving how these integrate with our plugin while keeping in mind that including all of the snippets in our core code would create a really high number of options available, which in turn might reduce clarity.

                                    So this is very much a balancing act.

                                    As for the design feedback, I'll make sure I forward your comment to Jony Ive. We do share your disappointment on how he failed to make our plugin look like it was designed by Apple ;-)

                                      Hello all,

                                      As it stands, we currently do not support PolyLang as multi-language solution.
                                      That being said, we are in the process of increasing support for multiple languages.

                                      For now, our focus is on completing WPML support. Once that is done, we will absolutely take a look at the very popular PolyLang plugin.

                                      Thank you for your patience and understanding on this.
                                      Hang in there as we work our way to this and keep the votes coming!

                                        Hello all,

                                        We have started working on improving the whole cancellation and change of event process.

                                        It is too early to provide a timeline for now, but hang in there as we make this a reality!

                                        Dear Ross,

                                        We could not agree with you more, which is why this is now part of our roadmap.
                                        Please know we appreciate every suggestion we receive.

                                        Prioritizing them is no easy task and we are trying to get through the list of new feature as fast as we can.

                                        Thank you for reaching out to us

                                        Thanks for all your votes and comments. We'd love to be able to deliver a solution, but it's not scheduled to do so yet. Keep voting and sharing your individual / specific use cases!

                                        This is indeed a great idea!

                                        Could you see something like this being an integration with an email service, like MailChimp and/or Campaign Monitor? For example, sync an attendee list with a subscriber list in one of those services, then set up automation to email attendees as the event draws near?

                                        I've added this ticket to our system for further consideration, but would love your additional feedback here as well.

                                        Thanks!

                                          Thank you @Denon for taking the time to provide us with some food for thought as well as some your find of a slider plugin that works great for you.

                                          As for the look of the calendar, you are right, we do aim at making it as customizable as can be. If you are experiencing issues with updates overwriting the changes you have made, you might want to use a Child theme and/or some template customization. You might want to read our Themer's guide to get a sense of how that works: https://theeventscalendar.com/knowledgebase/themers-guide/

                                            Implementing a graphical solution, where you can click on a given seat and it will reserve it, is probably not possible due to the complexity and technological limitations.

                                            However, would the ability to upload an image of your seating map/chart work? From there you could specify a list of seating names in the backend and when a user purchases a ticket they can select from a drop down of available seats, and cross reference it with your seating chart image so they now which goes where. We realize this will not be as fancy as many people are picturing, but since it is actually possible to implement it is a compromise we would be interested in looking into if this will solve your needs.

                                            We have a KB article about this: https://theeventscalendar.com/knowledgebase/ticketing-using-seating-chart/

                                            If you're looking for a seating chart option, you might want to consider using our Eventbrite Tickets plugin. Eventbrite recently added a seating chart feature.
