Idealien Rideshare

A custom post type for you & your community to get to where you want to go using less gas and having more fun together.

The Idealien Rideshare plugin creates a custom post type which enables you and your community to get to where you want to go using less gas and having more fun on road trips. It has been designed towards both event and city-based rideshares so that drivers and passengers in the same city can co-ordinate their travel to whatever festival, concert, workshop, WordCamp, etc they are attending elsewhere.

The admin form is easy for adding / editing rideshares for those who have access to your sites' admin console. To make the process as easy for your extended community, this plugin also provides an exceptional Gravity Form to let anyone submit their rideshare request via the front-end of your website.


  • All drop-down data elements (event, city and rideshare type) are setup as taxonomies which you can easily add / remove the plugin defaults to suit your situation.
  • From the front-end with Gravity Forms, users can add a city or event which will add to those taxonomies – your rideshare options grow without content wranglers having to do anything.
  • Multiple shortcodes / options to display the rideshare list and form. Designed to support those who have no desire / capability to modify their themes but also extensible for those who do.
  • v0.2 - Adds ability to set shortcode parameters via querystring (list only rideshares for a particular city or event or type)
  • v0.2 - Adds ability to notify registered users via email about contact requests.
