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.
  • Hassle-free interface. Creating your event is as simple as adding a new post to your WordPress blog.
  • 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

  1. Elliot – You might suggest this in the forums where the developers are more likely to see it and more detailed discussion can take place. The developers are always happy to hear ideas for improvements, and many do eventually get implemented.
