[resolved] Duplicate Events (8 posts)

    I understand from a couple threads that Recurring Events won't be looked at anytime soon, but I was hoping you could add a duplication option on events so that I can create a recurring event and duplicate it multiple times editing the dates on each, thus making the process much quicker.
    Thank you

    This has also been requested by our users... a simple 'copy event' button would be very handy.

    Recurring events IS available in the Pro version of the plugin.

    To be fair, plugin authors need to make a commercial decision as to what is and isn't included in the free version of their plugins. If they offer workarounds in the free version so you don't need to buy the paid version, they'll never make any money!

    Thanks Thea, for the plugin authors I completely understand that. However the workaround is already available in a sense as I can manually create another entry as duplicate so the feature would ease that process as well as handle other cases where you want a similar event (not a recurring one) but don't want to go through and create it from scratch.

    Hi everyone,

    Thea is quite correct that recurring events is supported by Events Calendar PRO - it's highly unlikely we will be adding this functionality into the core plugin.

    Duplication of events though (and you might even find existing plugins out there that add this for posts generally) is certainly something we'd consider. Please do post a feature request:

    Thanks Barry,
    Appreciated, rather than open a new request I just upvoted the existing one.
    All the best,

    Thank you - yes upvoting an existing one is definitely the right course of action there (and anyone else coming across this thread wondering about the same thing, please do the same as it can help us to prioritize new features).
