Support » Plugin: Theater for WordPress » Events vs productions

  • Would be great if I could clarify the terms ‘event’ and ‘production’.

    I create an event. A film that is showing in our cinema.
    I choose Event New, and it lists in the Event screen.
    I add, say, five dates that the film will show.

    I think, the the film (that lists as an event, in the event screen) is in fact a ‘production’. And each individual date is an ‘event’.


    • listing an event, should list an individual screening of the film.
    • Listing a production ([wpt_production_events]) should give the film, its details and a list of the screening times (events).
    • A list of productions will give me list of all the films available.

    (And the Events menu and screen would be less confusingly called “Productions” )

    Grateful for feedback if I am understanding these things correctly.

    I can understand the confusion.

    The plugin is internally using using the production / event convention. This is also still the case when you are using the shortcodes.

    On the front end everything has moved to the event / dates convention.
