    Hi – I’ve installed Open Tickets Community Edition to evaluate it. I like the implementation other than the Event Calendar doesn’t look too great with our Template:

    Event Calendar

    If we stay with Open Tickets, I will need to buy the GAMP extension but I’m hesitating because I’d like all the components to look like they are part of the site.

    Interestingly, the event page to purchase tickets looks pretty good:

    Account

    Any thoughts or advice?

    Thanks!

    Hey @gmorgan1,

    In the basic community version, the calendar is the only method, that is built in, for displaying the events. With that in mind, we do have another extension, called Display Options. This extension gives you a few more ways to display the events.

    It provides you with a couple shortcodes you can embed in your content. One of them allows you to show a list of upcoming events on your site. This list is completely style-able (via css) and customizable (via template overrides in your theme) depending on your needs.

    The extension also provides you with a shortcode to display a ‘Featured Event’ (or a series of featured events). This shortcode is also style-able and customizable the same way as the upcoming events shortcode.

    Both of these shortcodes also have ‘sister widgets’. These widgets accomplish the exact same thing as the shortcode, only you can embed it in a widget area on your site instead of the content of your site, adding another level of flexibility.

    In addition, this extension allows you to show all your events, in your shop view. This way when users visit your standard ‘shop’ interface for WooCommerce, they will not only be presented with a list of all your ‘swag’ products, but they will also be presented with a list of all the upcoming events, and the prices of those events.

    Display Options provides you with a bunch of new ways of displaying your events, and each of them are customizable as you see fit. That being said, with a little ingenuity, the tools you need to generate your own interface for displaying your events, are available to you already, if you have some technical background and are able to put code together to accomplish what you want. The plugin was written with the concept in mind that you may be displaying, or even using, the software in a way that we have not anticipated. Thus it is extendable with a little programming time on your part (or hired by you).

    Hope this helps,
    Loushou
