This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.



ETEvents is a plugin designed to work with the Event theme provided by Elegant Themes. The Event theme lacks any event registration management and relies on third party websites to maintain that information. The ETEvents plugins allows event creators the ability to permit users to register (book), cancel, and reserve entry into an event all without third party websites.

All the instructions for installation, the support forums, a FAQ, etc. can be found on the plugin home page or on the plugin overview page.

Will this Plugin work with themes other than the Event theme by Elegant Themes?


Is there a plan to make this plugin work with other themes in the future?


Can anyone register for an Event?

No. Only users with a valid email, first name and last name will be able to register for an event.

Are the automated generated emails customizable?


When an event is full and users are put in the reserved list – are they automatically bumped up in status when other users cancel their bookings?

No. I know. It was a lack of functionality on my part due to lack of foresight. Hopefully, future versions will allow that.
