Installation

Always take a backup of your db before doing the upgrade, just in case …
1. Upload the events-made-easy folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
3. Add events list or calendars following the instructions in the Usage section.

Usage

After the installation, Events Made Easy add a top level “Events” menu to your WordPress Administration.

  • The Events page lets you edit or delete the events. The Add new page lets you insert a new event.
    In the event edit page you can specify the number of spaces available for your event. You just need to turn on RSVP for the event and specify the spaces available in the right sidebar box.
    When a visitor responds to your events, the box sill show you his reservation. You can remove reservation by clicking on the x button or view the respondents data in a printable page.
    You can also specify the category the event is in, if you activated the Categories support in the Settings page.
    Also fine grained control of the RSVP mails and the event layout are possible here, if the defaults you configured in the Settings page are not ok for this specific event.
  • The Locations page lets you add, delete and edit locations directly. Locations are automatically added with events if not present, but this interface lets you customise your locations data and add a picture.
  • The Categories page lets you add, delete and edit categories (if Categories are activated in the Settings page).
  • The People page serves as a gathering point for the information about the people who reserved a space in your events.
  • The Pending approvals page is used to manage registrations/bookings for events that require approval
  • The Change registration page is used to change bookings for events
  • The CRON page is used to plan automated EME tasks (like sending reminders, cancel unpaid registrations, newsletter)
  • The Settings page allows a fine-grained control over the plugin. Here you can set the format of events in the Events page.
  • Access control is in place for managing events and such:
    – a user with role “Editor” can do anything
    – with role “Author” you can only add events or edit existing events for which you are the author or the contact person
    – with role “Contributor” you can only add events in draft or edit existing events for which you are the author or the contact person

Events list and calendars can be added to your blogs through widgets, shortcodes and template tags. See the full documentation at the Events Made Easy Support Page.

Reviews

Love this plugin

Been using it for years… highly customizable, tons of features that I don’t even use, but still gives me a great platform for events. Very robust event planning plugin and calendar.

Wow! What a great plugin.

Full points for Frankie and Events Made Easy.

This is an incredibly powerful plugin and it works right out of the box. You can –literally – install the plugin, put the “events” page into your menus, and start adding events. Everything just works from there. The plugin will generate event listings, event description pages, booking forms, confirmation email and everything else you need to manage your calendar of events. Of course, some things need configuration ( like a reply-to email address ) but all the web pages work from default settings.

Payments are made easy too. It has simple, single click integration with a wide variety of payment platforms.

Fully integrated with your WordPress membership database, so you don’t need to run a second system. Everything is in one place.

If you want like to play, you can configure the output of the default web pages. Settings for every aspect of those pages are in your control. You can set up defaults for everything (and there is a lot) and you can over-ride everything.

In addition there are templates, a bit like Smarty, which can be almost everywhere. Templates can include conditional logic with IF statements and LOOPS, which are based on values from the event data. How cool is that!

Shortcodes allow you to integrate your events into posts and pages. Your shortcodes can include search queries based on date, time and category and they can call templates. The logic is simple and flexible. The mix of search and templates ( and conditional logic in the template ) means that you can do a lot (!) with shortcodes. In fact, the “basic usage” page in the documentation ( did I mention that there is good documentation ) says “you need to use shortcodes on regular pages to get anything done from EME.” That’s so not true, but it is does give you total control.

Plus, there are hooks and filters, so you can knock yourself out.

Terrible experience

I do not recommend this plugin at all!

I didn’t easily understand how it’s organized and the support is quite unfriendly. I am uninstalling this and using another plugin.

No one forces anybody to create a plugin and provide support, so if it’s to be rude to users, might as well do something else.

high customisable and simple

I like this plugin – simple, clear and high customisable. i can do a lot of fancy automated things 🙂
not to mention is a great support and documentation!

Thank You!

Great plug-in

Great plug-in. Did a little research on which one was best for event management before trying this one and have been really pleased. Once set up my templates it is easy to create and manage new events.

2.0.58 (2018/10/13)

  • Captcha fallback if no freetype support is compiled in your PHP GD library
  • Option to set the use of a captcha per event or membership
  • Captcha is now always case-insensitive, so the corresponding option for that is removed
  • Correctly replace #_ADDBOOKINGFORM_IF_USER_HAS_CAP{xx} and #_USER_HAS_CAP{xxx} if user is not logged in too (idem with the similar MEMBER_OF and IN_GROUP placeholders)

  • Fix for editing recurrent events on specific days (the check for end date is not needed in that case and was blocking the edit)
  • Fix for storing custom answers (they were stored, but deletedd immediately after)

2.0.56 (2018/10/02)

  • Small improvement in member start/end date calculations for new members when defined in the backend (made it more logical)
  • Fix new location being added through event add

2.0.55 (2018/10/02)

  • Add grace period for memberships, to allow people to remain member for a number of days after the end date has passed
  • Add “one extra free period” for memberships. This is mostly for the fixed period membership type, where people “jump” in the middle of a current membership period but still need to pay the full price. This option then allows them to receive 1 extra membership period for free. Example: someone becomes a member for 1 year (membership starts in Jan) in June, he would need to pay full price but only receives six months (till Dec). So either you calculate pro-rata the price for him (not possible automatically yet), or you give 1 year free (so it would end Dec + 1 year)
  • Added API function eme_get_booking_post_answers, this allows people to easily get the POST answers for a booking for e.g. own discounts
  • Fix showing draft events (when paging event listings or in the calendar)
  • Fix for updating old version of EME to latest (argument count was wrong for function eme_get_mailings in the upgrade procedure)

2.0.54 (2018/09/23)

  • The captcha will now return an error if the wordpress configured temp dir is not writable
  • The captcha was removed if correctly entered, but other form validations might fail later on, so we take care of that now and not invalidate the captcha until the whole validation is ok
  • Added event placeholders #_ADDBOOKINGFORM_IF_USER_HAS_CAP{xx} (shows the booking form if user has a certain WP capability) and #__USER_HAS_CAP{xxx} (usefull as conditional tag check)
  • Avoid double “Required field” messages
  • Fix a setting logic so you can still rsvp after the start of an event if configured so
  • When editing a recurrence with ‘Specific Days’, only 1 day was shown
  • Add a missing html div-tag to the eme calendar

2.0.53 (2018/09/15)

  • SECURITY RELEASE
    Please update to this release if using the client clock functionality and EME version>2.0.48
    Info: the cookie is now stored using json_encode and not serialize, to avoid for Object Injection
    See https://www.owasp.org/index.php/PHP_Object_Injection
    Reported by pluginvulnerabilities.com (Thank you guys!)

2.0.52 (2018/09/13)

  • Fix #_EDITEVENTLINK and #_EDITEVENTURL (had wrong nonce)
  • Fix a double escaping in the location marker balloon format (resulted in double links and maybe not all image showed in the balloon)
  • Fix showing the list of uploaded files in the edit-booking window

2.0.51 (2018/09/11)

  • Fix map balloon format
  • Remove a double function call

2.0.48 (2018/09/03)

  • Show reason of failed mail in the mailing report
  • When mailing is finished with failed mails, let the mailing contact person know
  • Fix mail error message after rsvp
  • Fix massmail popup dialog

2.0.47 (2018/09/03)

  • Fix mail sending and error reporting in the admin backend

2.0.46 (2018/09/02)

  • Allow file upload fields.
    This causes all forms to require a reasonably new browser, but already tested on: IE11 (Edge should be ok too), Firefox and Chrome (also Android versions)
    The field upload can also be done for persons in the backend (if defined as a dynamic field)
  • #_FILES can be called for bookings and members, returning the files uploaded for that booking or member (all files uploaded!). However: a custom field that was
    marked as “Person field” (so asking for personal info) will not be returned when using #_FILES
  • #_PERSONAL_FILES can be called bookings and members, returning the files uploaded for the relevant person
  • Show smtp debugging only when sending a test email
  • Implement an optional limit on the datetime people can start using the rsvp form (“Allow RSVP from” setting per event, complementing the “Allow RSVP until” setting)
  • When editing a booking and the price of the event changed in the meantime, take the new price into account and show a warning
  • Activate ignore_filter in the calendar shortcode (option was documented but not activated)
  • Marker clustering is now possible again too (it was on google maps, now also on openstreetmap)
  • Bugfix for multiple maps on one page
  • Bugfix when moving a booking from one event to another (the data was lost)

2.0.45 (2018/08/25)

  • Simple bugfix release

2.0.44 (2018/08/25)

  • Moved from Google Maps to OpenStreetMap since the Google Maps service now requires a credit card etc …
    This helps me in deciding not to try and integrate Google products anymore (not even recaptcha)
    Because of this, the #_ADD_DIRECTIONS_FORM currently will not return a form anymore (might become a map later on)
  • Revamped some recurrence code
  • Bugfix: when looking at a single location in the frontent, a 404 was returned
  • Bugfix: default page template was not selected for new events

2.0.43 (2018/08/24)

  • Added booking placeholders #_DISCOUNTCODES_ENTERED and #_DISCOUNTCODES_VALID (or #_DISCOUNTCODES_USED) to show the discount codes someone entered and those that are valid (the used ones)
  • Allow a different wordpress page template to be used per event (like any other wordpress pages)
  • Fix so #_MAPS returns empty and not a warning if you don’t have Google Maps activated
  • Bugfix when reusing a mail (html code was not escaped correctly)

2.0.42 (2018/08/21)

  • Formfields of type ‘people’ are now stored per person, so you can ask for extra personal info during rsvp or membership signup
  • Autocomplete now also works for the membership form
  • Bugfix for massmail popup dialog (it popped up on the wrong condition)
  • Bugfix when trashing a person (memberships and groups were not removed)

2.0.41 (2018/08/19)

  • Added separate view for mail archive
  • Implemented people trash and restore, together with an option to simply remove personal data (like the wordpress request for removal does)
  • The unsubscribe form shortcode eme_unsubform now takes 1 argument: template_id. This template can use the following placeholders: #_EMAIL, #_MAILGROUPS, #_GDPR (or #_GDPR{xxx}), and #_SUBMIT (or #_SUBMIT{xx}). If you want your own form for unsbscribe, use this on a page and not #_UNSUB_URL

2.0.40 (2018/08/17)

  • Re-added the default setting for massmail for new persons
  • Option added to show a popup if a person selects ‘No’ for #_OPT_IN or #_OPT_OUT. This allows to ask the person if they are sure that they don’t want to receive mails
  • GDPR removal of a person keeps the person id, but removes all user info in it. This allows reservation counts for events to stay correct.
  • In the events overview you can now filter on start or end date, or both (in which case it is a range for events starting on or later than the first selected date and ending on or before the second selected date)
  • The subscribe form shortcode eme_subform now takes 1 argument: template_id. This template can use the following placeholders: #_EMAIL, #_MAILGROUPS, #_GDPR (or #_GDPR{xxx}), and #_SUBMIT (or #_SUBMIT{xx})

2.0.39 (2018/08/16)

  • Removed the default setting for massmail for new persons. This setting was not GDPR compliant. If you want to know if a person wants massmailing or not, use the #_OPT_IN or #_OPT_OUT placeholders in your form (and #_OPT_OUT is not GDPR compliant as well)
  • Added a popup if a person doesn’t want massmailing, to ask them to be sure
  • Bugfix for disabling the honeypot field
  • JS bugfix if gmap is not enabled or API key not defined

2.0.38 (2018/08/15)

  • Added the option to require a password for rsvp submit, together with a new rsvp form placeholder #_PASSWORD
  • Groups can now be designated for “mail only”, and then people can unsubscribe from those groups in the new subscribe/unsubscribe form
  • Added [eme_subform] and [eme_unsubform] shortcodes, so people can subscribe/unsubcribe to email groups
  • Added placeholders #_EVENTS_COUNT and #_EVENT_COUNTER for eme_events shortcode. This gets interpreted for the templates and results in the count of events shown in the list (#_EVENTS_COUNT) or the position of the event in the list (#_EVENT_COUNTER)
    These can then be used in conditional tags to create dynamic templates based on the position or the amount of events
  • Most booking placeholders concerning people no longer need “RESP” in them, meaning you can almost literally copy the rsvp form format to the mail format and the resulting mail should reflect the expected result
  • Added placeholder #_GDPR for forms, shows just a checkbox that needs to be ticked, otherwise the form will not submit. Extra explanation is yours to add of course.
    Also added #_GDPR{xxx} where xxx is an extra label text for the checkbox
  • All rsvp related placeholders for events now use the linked event for rsvp info (some were missing)
  • Since the google maps api key is now required, don’t show the map anymore if not so, but show a warning
  • Add a generic option to disable the hidden honeypot field
  • Attempt to disable caching for the captcha image by some caching plugins
  • Bugfix for attendance url

2.0.37 (2018/07/31)

  • Added option template_id_no_events to [eme_events]
  • New rsvp placeholder #_ATTENDANCE_URL, will allow you to create an url (and using any other wp plugin create a qr-code), to send to the booker. When entering, this is scanned and checked:
    • if it is paid for
    • if the number of times this link is used is not higher than the amount of seats
    • only valid 5 hours before the event starts and until the event is finished (these limits can be set per event)
  • Added conditional tags #_IS_ENDED_EVENT, #_IS_USER_IN_GROUP{xxx} and #_IS_USER_MEMBER_OF{xxx}
  • Added #_ADDBOOKINGFORM_IF_USER_IN_GROUP{xxx} and #_ADDBOOKINGFORM_IF_USER_IS_MEMBER_OF{xxx}
  • Allow RSVP from one event to be linked to the RSVP section of another event
  • Several email subject formats can now also be customized per event
  • Moved the setting concerning the “required field text” for form fields to the section “Other”, because it also applies to membership forms and not just rsvp forms
  • Fix when editing personal info for an existing booking, together with autocomplete fix
  • Bugfix: mail to all active members of specific memberships was not working

2.0.36 (2018/06/26)

  • When showing a calendar day with only 1 event: redirect to that event, solves title issues
  • remove an old code fragment that did php output buffering
  • Added action eme_approve_rsvp_action, executed immediately after booking approval. 1 parameter: $booking (contains all info of the booking in an array)
  • Send an approval mail if total price to pay is 0 (due to discount or so) and auto-approve is set
  • Added an option to add events and locations to the link search when creating links in the wordpress editor
  • Correctly show the payment form for memberships too

  • Documented the eme_people shortcode
  • Added options template_id_header and template_id_footer to the eme_people shortcode
  • Added #_GROUPS to attendee, booking and people placeholders, returning a csv list of the groups a person is in
  • Added #_GROUPS to dynamic data condition placeholders for events and memberships, returning a csv list of groups a user that is entering a form is currently in
  • Added eme_if condition ‘incsv’, so for ex. you can compare if a certain person is in a certain group and based on that show/hide stuff
  • Added extra dynamic data conditions (like ‘contains’, ‘notcontains’ and ‘incsv’)
  • Make EME compliant with the new wordpress gdpr functions

2.0.31 (2018/05/07)

  • Revert the global use of Nuberformatter, not every php installation has the intl extensions loaded (even though it is available in cpanel etc …)

2.0.30 (2018/05/04)

  • Don’t store the IP when creating a booking, this is unneeded info to keep and might be a problem for GDPR compliancy
  • Fix sending custom event mails to specific wordpress users/groups
  • Allow sending a preview mail for event mails
  • Add payment gateway and transaction ID info to booking/member payment info
  • Improve FirstData payments (other currencies except USD accepted now)

2.0.25 (2018/03/26)

  • Planned mailings now get their conditions reevaluated before the mailing starts (groups and such) so the result of the mailing will be as close to reality as possible on that moment
    This change is kindly sponsored by Alex Floris
  • Cancelled mailings had wrong statistics (reported 0 cancelled), this has been fixed

  • Better country/states management

    This allows us to have persons in EME without email info now (it might seem archaic, but it happens …)
  • Bugfix: make state edit work again

2.0.19 (2018/02/24)

  • Use and enfore a list of states/countries for RSVP and people/members
