CampTix & Events Calendar for Meetup Groups

Description

“CampTix & Events Calendar for Meetup Groups” is an add-on for CampTix and The Events Calendar that lets you use these two great plugins to manage events for your meetup group.

“CampTix & Events Calendar for Meetup Groups” adds the following features:

  • New ‘Sponsor’ taxonomy for events so you can specify any number of sponsors per event and display them on event pages
  • Link up CampTix tickets and events allowing you to display event attendees on your event pages
  • Public RSS feed of event attendees – useful for integrations with services like Slack

You can see an example of this plugin in action on a single event page from my local WordPress meetup group in Cape Town here and here. And here’s an example of the attendees RSS feed filtered to show a specific event’s attendees.

Note that this plugin requires CampTix and The Events Calendar (or Events Calendar PRO) to be installed – without them it is effectively pointless.

Usage

All you need to do is install the plugin, add your sponsors and link up your events and tickets from the event edit screen.

FAQ

Why did you make this plugin?

I built these custom features for my local WordPress meetup group in Cape Town and thought it was worth sharing them for the benefit of other meetup groups around the world.

How do I display a specific event’s attendees in the RSS feed?

To make the attendees RSS feed only display attendees for a specific event, just add ‘?event=EVENT_ID’ to the feed URL.

How do I customise the RSS feed?

Copy the templates/feed-attendees.php file into the root folder of your active theme (or child theme) and then edit it there. If the RSS temmplate file exists in your theme then the plugin will use that one instead of the default.

Can I request additional features?

Yes – by all means, please post on the support forum with your feature request and I’ll see what I can do to accommodate them.

How can I contribute to this plugin?

You can fork the GitHub repository here.
