Your organization puts on events and you need a way to create, manage, and display those events for maximum exposure. You need a place to collect RSVP’s, spread the word about your events through social networking channels, maybe even charge for those events and collect payments online – not just at the event. We’ll, we’ve got you covered – with the Events + plugin.
Events + is a fantastic plugin for anyone putting on webinars who wants a more thorough registration screen than what the webinar software companies provide. It’s a great plugin for nonprofits which want to request donations online for people attending events in-person. It’s perfect for nearly any situation where you need to create and display events inside your WordPress powered website. With it, you can take event registrations, manage and track attendees, even export lists of those registrations.
In this tutorial we’ll show you how to install the Events + plugin, configure the settings, and we’ll walk through some of the more powerful features like the templating system, ways to extend the plugin, and, of course, how to link it all with your PayPal account for taking payment.
