Support » Plugin: BP Event Manager » Feedback and Suggestions

  • Hi dear @zaheer01,
    Here is my feedback from my tests so far (and some suggestions):

    1. Edit/Delete event on front-end by event creator/group admin/group mod (needed)

    2. Support for private and hidden groups. Events in those groups still appear on the /events/ page, and in the widget and are searchable by a search tool, for example BP Global Search, which is not good for privacy.

    3. Impossible to set an event that starts and ends in the same day. For example, I cannot set an event for July 14, 2019 from 2pm to 4pm

    4. I suggest a different layout for aesthetic reasons: Only one tab on the main group navbar. This tab could have three subtabs; one for Upcoming/Past events, one for Calendar and one for Event creation.

    5. The — bug still persists when you move from a week to the next week using the arrows > and <

    That’s for now. I may come back if I find something else to report. I understand that this is a new plugin; so all these inconveniences are somehow normal. Your plugin is an excellent plugin and I thank you.

    @georgio-1 you are awesome. I need that type of feedback to make my plugin awesome. For now i am stuck in something after few days you’ll see an updated plugin.

    Thank You Very Much.

    Thank you for your responsiveness and your kind words!

    Some more feedback:

    6. Give the possibility to choose which day the Week starts. Sunday is not convenient for all countries. And even in countries that prefer Sunday, a group creator who organizes events on week-ends may choose Monday because a two-day week-end event will display as broken on the Calendar, if the Week starts on Sunday.

    If the site has users from different countries (expecially if it is multilingual) I think that the group creator should choose the week start day (not the site admin).

    7. CDNs. As for jsdelivr.net, I think that it would be good to include the validation file in the plugin to enhance the sense of privacy. This is good in some cases, e.g.
    -communities with concerns about privacy (scientists or businesspeople collaborating on projects)
    -sites that make Privacy a strategic argument. That is they sell more than services, they “sell Privacy” as well (vip clubs…)

    As for bootstrap, it slows my site 780ms, tested on https://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/insights/ so I removed the line temporarily.
    I think it would be better to serve icons from a folder in the plugin.

    8. Allow Group creator to deactivate Events (if they don’t need it) and decide who can publish events (group users, group mods).

    9. Insert Event in the Activity Stream (only for Public groups)

    10. When clicking on an event to go to its single page, there must be a link to return back.

    11 Make Attendees display automatically on the Event Single page or give an option to activate display (without using shortcode). This is not important, just for convenience.

    12. Add Google Maps or Openstreet feature for event location.

    13. Maybe add a page on BP User Profile with events they created/participate.
    This is good if the group creator is an Event Organizer. It also allows to see in what events our friends participate and maybe attend those events, since we normally trust friends’ choices.

    14. Maybe add a separate text area in the creation form, so that group creators can insert Paypal button code (for charging or donating).

    I think that BP Event Manager has an enormous potential!
