What is the Events + Plugin?

In case you aren’t yet familiar with it (it’s only a month old, after all), the Events + plugin gives you a flexible WordPress-based system for organizing meet-ups, parties, dinners, fundraisers, or any other type of event you can think of – be it online or off.

It can do everything Facebook Events can do (and more), but it is also completely WordPress based.

  • Integrates with PayPal. Sell tickets to your event and accept payment in any major currency.

  • Facebook and Twitter login. Guests can RSVP with their social media profiles – no WordPress account required.
  • Integrated Google Maps. Simply insert Google maps with built in direction features for attendees.
  • Widgets included. Easily display event attendees, upcoming events and most popular events in any widgetized area of your site.
  • Compatible with any WordPress theme. Looks great out of the box or customize the style and layout to fit your site.
  • Keep tabs on who’s coming. Monitor the guest list from your WordPress dashboard, with the option to display public RSVPs on your site.
  • Works perfectly with Multisite and BuddyPress. Beautiful BuddyPress integration, including groups support
