[resolved] Integration with buddypress (8 posts)

    As mentioned in my previous post, I am considering moving towards using your plugin. It seems more developer friendly (that's me!) and simple on the front-end. My site is buddypress centric though and I am a bit concerned about the integration between the two. Is Events Organiser designed to integrate with Buddypress, any known plugin conflicts, etc.

    The more info the better.

    Hi,

    I've never tested/used BuddyPress with Event Organiser, however someone has made this plug-in: https://github.com/christianwach/bp-event-organiser which integrates the two. (And there are no known conflicts).

    The only issue with the above mentioned plug-in, and this will relate to your other comment, is that the calendar is cached (but no per-user). This makes attempts to have per-user calendars buggy. This is something I'll address in the next update (adding a filter to change the cache key).

    There's no in-built feature for displaying a per-user calendar, but I suspect that the above plug-in might enable you to do that. With Pro there is a 'user is attending' option for the calendar to display a calendar of events that user has purchased tickets for.

    Awesome, this answers many of my questions. Will look into that integration plugin you mentioned.

    Quick question, when you say "With Pro there is a 'user is attending' option for the calendar to display a calendar of events that user has purchased tickets for" do they specifically have to have went through a "purchase behavior" or does this encompass free events they RSVP'd for? I likely will only have free events for now.

    It includes any events they've registered for (regardless of whether doing so required payment or not). It does require their booking is confirmed (when using the PayPal gateway this is usually instantaneous, offline bookings require manual (admin) confirmation, and the case of a free booking, confirmation is automatic).

    Awesome, thank for the quick reply. Also, just to verify/reiterate, there is no free RSVPing with the free plugin version?

    That's correct - all booking features are in Pro.

    Awesome, thanks. Will be purchasing shortly :)

    Plugin is great so far, expect to get a lot of support questions from me - about 80% of which I will end up answering myself within a minute of posting them haha
