If time is of the essence, we’re out of it this week!

Posted on February 27, 2011

This is just a quick note to explain the current progress of Events Manager. I’m pretty close to a release candidate that’ll incorporate some pretty cool features. Some of these include:

  • SEO-Friendly Permalinks
  • Ticketing, with functionality to charge for bookings
  • Advanced booking management, and integration with WordPress’ user management system
  • BuddyPress and Multi-Site Compatibility
  • Bugfixes
  • Loads more

Thing is… I’ve run out of time, as I’m about to set off on an planned-yet-already-postponed holiday. The update is close to completion, but i don’t like releasing half-done work for reasons that would require an essay to explain (don’t think I’d want to write that even if time permitted!).

This is a much needed break, and I’m looking forward to getting back next Saturday with a fresh mind to knock out a release candidate for you all to play with and give your feedback, as well as an update to EM with bugfixes.¬†Unfortunately, that’s about it now….. until next week!

    MEGA excited about the release… haven’t found a better Events plugin from a customisation perspective and all it lacks at the moment is member integration (to charge more for non-logged in people) and payment facilities! If you’re adding that – the 10/10!

    Release! Release!

    Hope you had a great holiday

  3. Great, I’m looking forward to the SEO-Friendly Permalinks. I’m using it for a 200 event calendar as it’s so quick to update and add new events.
