    Please add in your desired feature requests for the upcoming version of the Event-O-Matic and I'll do my best to include it.

    Some recent suggestions that will be included:

    • Make Google Map inclusion on the event detail page optional.
    • Internationalize address system.
    • Fix "'Array ( [0] => Array ( [user_email] =>" bug on confirm page

    What else?

    • email admin on submission
    • Sidebar widget (especially for submission form)

    Other than that this thing is exactly what I wanted.
    Great little plug-in! Thank you!

    Sub7th, check your spambox - all admins should receive an email when an event is submitted.

    Can't find the sidebar widget. This is the only thing stopping me from using this excellent plug in.

    Please help.

    Also, what happens when an event is recurring?

    Thanks,
    Don

    Hi Don, check your widgets for "Upcoming Events". That is the EOM widget.

    The EOM requires all events to be added independently. This was done to keep spammed recurring events from clogging the system. Eventually the EOM will allow users who submit to track their events and resubmit recycled events as needed.

    Matthew, thanks for getting back to me so quick.

    I think I know what the issue is. I've installed another calendar plug in that has a widget also called "Upcoming Events"

    I already added a few events to this one, and I can deactivate it. However, if POM doesn't work for me, will the previous events on the other plug in still be there?

    That may be the issue. Since I'm working on the updated version of the Event-O-Matic Widget this afternoon. I'll make a note to update the Widget with a more unique name. This might reduce confusion with other event plugins in future releases.

    Your settings should be unaffected with deactivated widgets.

    Any chance we'll see a submission sidebar widget with that update Matthew?

    I don't think that is possible, simply due to the size required by the current EOM submission form. The form is a 2-stage process and is more complex than what is permitted in a sidebar widget.

    Bummer, probably explains why I can't find any event submission widgets with sidebar submissions.

    Thanks for the quick response!

    One more request;

    When entering Venues from the admin panel, the ability to add Lat and Lon rather than an address. Some of the Venues I'm listing don't have street addresses which makes it difficult to add them to the venue list.
    Right now I cant add lat and lon at all and if you leave the address field empty EOM wont let you add the venue.

    Matthew, I disabled the other calendar, activated EOM, and the sidebar widget does not work. Please help.

    Don, I'm assuming you are using the event cal 3 plugin, which installs a separate plugin to use the widget. You will need to have both their plugins installed and active to use their widget. Don't disable a plugin if you want to use their associated widget.

    Using Version 1.0.1

    Do I have to enter a code in the widget?

    I didn't disable EOM. I had another calendar plug in that I disabled.

    If you are talking about the EOM's plugin- this version will show upcoming events at one particular venue. Enter in the ID number of the venue you would like to show and click save. Find the ID number by looking at the venue listings in the EOM admin. Note this will be significantly altered in the new release.

    I have to enter all the venues? I am doing this for a merchant organization, that has around fifty or so merchants, including restaurants, galleries, etc.

    So I'd have to add several different widgets, one for each venue, regardless if it has an upcoming event?

    I love that this is self submitted. I want merchants to submit their own events (I'll create all the venues ahead of time), so all I have to do is approve them.

    Can this be done?
    Thank you ahead of time.

    Also-- I don't see an ID number anywhere on the admin.

    Matthew,

    I just did a test event and it automatically showed up on the Merchant Association Facebook page (because I integrated the blog with the account) so if I use this, the event automatically updates the Facebook Page.

    AWESOME!

    Please get back to me soon, about the widget not showing up, I'm lovin the plug in so far.

    Thanks,
    Don

    The sidebar doesn't have the functionality to show every event coming up at every venue - this functionality is reserved for the main [eom-listings] shortcode.

    Is there somewhere I can see the sidebar in action? Mine still doesn't work.
