[Plugin: Eventify™ - Simple Events] Feedback and Suggestions (6 posts)

    I was attracted to this plugin because it can automatically update the blog when creating an event. Almost none of the calendar plugins I've seen can do that. I tried this plugin and would like to offer a few suggestions that would make it more suitable for my needs:

    1. When using the front-end form, events are posted to the blog with the administrator as the author. I never publish anything on my sites as the admin because it is a security risk. Can you set the author of the blog post to be the same as the user who creates the event?
    2. All times are formatted in military time. Can you add an option to choose AM/PM instead of military time?
    3. Can you make the entries on the calendar link to the corresponding blog posts?

    Those features would come in very handy. Thanks for considering my suggestions!

    Best wishes,

    Fred Chapman

    Hi,
    Luv your plugin since I was searching regular Posts (not custom post type) with event fields to fluently mix with other posts in special output template

    • Could be cool to directly create events in post section instead of selecting post in options, easier for me : I do need to use exactly same category as posts and have special fields and option assigned to posts admin by my theme
    • Would be nice to have googlemaps integration for locations
    • I urgently need to use event date in html ouside of post content, I've tried <h3><?php print date("d/m/Y",strtotime($str_event_time)); ?></h3> but it gives 1/1/70 each time and I would be really interested to have séparate spans to css for day, month and year. It would be interesting to have a post template with all post fields separate so we could make self templates...

    Can't subscribe to Eventify Pro : http://www.eventifypro.com and http://designerfoo.com doesn't seem to work?!

    Thanks in advance...

    Hi Janay,

    Sorry, been working on designerfoo.com's redesign and eventifypro.com didn't know about that, but you can always ping me @designerfoo on twitter. I rarely check the support forums here, so if you guys have to contact me please just email me :) its sooo much faster :) i [at] designerfoo [dot] com

    Could be cool to directly create events in post section instead of selecting post in options, easier for me : I do need to use exactly same category as posts and have special fields and option assigned to posts admin by my theme => will add this to the next release :)

    Would be nice to have googlemaps integration for locations => in the works :)

    I urgently need to use event date in html ouside of post content, I've tried <h3><?php print date("d/m/Y",strtotime($str_event_time)); ?></h3> but it gives 1/1/70 each time and I would be really interested to have séparate spans to css for day, month and year. It would be interesting to have a post template with all post fields separate so we could make self templates...=> OK will make the templates, but if you need help with getting the date outside of the post content, let me know :)

    Thanks a lot Designerfoo for considering my suggestions!!! I'm eager to try the new release!!!
    Yes I need help to get the date(s) and location out of the post content : http://conexion.cluster003.ovh.net/blog/news/
    (See here I did use the events created with eventify but had to add two custom fields to my post for date and location to be able to show on top of image...)
    I'll mail you If needed, thanks a lot again. Didn't find any plugin close to this one!!!
    Janay
