Events Manager
[resolved] feature request: bookings for recurring events (5 posts)

    hello!

    first off id like to say that this is hands down the best, most elaborated and feature rich free events managing and booking plugin available for wordpress, and i have checked out all the free ones - none of which comes even close. i am definitely sticking with this one.

    using events manager for a dancing class website, one thing i am missing though is the possibility to let users book recurring events. dance courses are implemented as recurring events, one course spanning 6 weeks, one lesson per week. i have modified some plugin files and added some hooks to achieve this (first off by making recurring events public via the provided filter hooks), but the problem with this is the maintenance overhead when updates are available, and secondly the lack of stability because its not widely tested. overall, the needed changes to the plugin files are not too substantial since recurring events are just regular events with the recurring database field set to 1. it would be great if this feature could make it into the official release!

    second thing i miss is the support for recurrence exceptions, which i worked around by defining a custom field with some text and a conditional template tag {has_exceptions}, but the user still has to delete the individual exception events after updates to the recurring event.

    anyway, thank you for making this great plugin!

    cheers - stephan

    Hi Marcus

    Any developments in this area? I am setting up a U3A site, and this feature would be exceptionally helpful for users booking full courses.

    Great plugin BTW, awesome for free :)

    Stephan, would you mind sharing the changes you made as a starting point? I'm looking to do the same thing.
