New plugin: GigPress
GigPress is a WordPress plugin built specifically for touring bands. As a website developer who was often building websites for independent bands — and always using WordPress as CMS of choice — I was constantly frustrated by the lack of a simple, viable method of incorporating live shows and tours into these websites. So I figured I’d brush up on some PHP and build my own.
GigPress incorporates all the common requests you might have for a plugin of its ilk, including:
- Ability to list both upcoming shows and past shows, chronologically rolled-over as tour dates pass
- Grouping of shows into nameable tours
- Auto-linking to Google Maps for venues with a street address
- Fields for venue and ticket-buy URLs, age restrictions, ticket price, and notes
- Built-in functions to display upcoming shows, past shows, and a sidebar listing
- Widget support
- Outputs XHTML-compliant, semantic markup
