Support » Plugin: GigPress » no updates since ModernTribe took over

  • I am seriously worried about the future of Gigpress. It’s been neglected ever since ModernTribe took over – no news, no updates, no commitment. I hope this brilliant plugin is not turning into a lame duck all of a sudden. Derek Hogue would deserve better.

  • Agreed! I finally gave up. They (Modern Tribe) posted a plug-in last year to run Gigpress posts into their calendar app but I never could get it to work properly and never got any more support on it other than “we’ll look into it”.
    Since I was already making custom post types with Toolset I set up venues and bands and events and imported as much Gigpress data as I could into those post types and made a page to display upcoming gigs but there’s still no calendar integration which now that I’ve gotten used to it I don’t really care about any more.

    Hi @nadworks (and @robbie),

    We have by no means ‘given up’ on GigPress. In fact, some updates will be shipping soon πŸ™‚

    A number of factors influence frequency of updates, though, and a slower pace of development does not mean the plugin is necessarily being neglected – rather, especially with a relatively small but stable and mature plugin like this one (which has been in development since 2010), there aren’t many truly high priority fixes that are required.

    They (Modern Tribe) posted a plug-in last year to run Gigpress posts into their calendar app but I never could get it to work properly and never got any more support on it other than β€œwe’ll look into it”.

    I located your forum post and unfortunately the advice you received may not have been entirely accurate. Based on a quick reading it actually sounds like it is working as intended and so I’ll follow up in that topic with some more detail (I realize you may not wish to use the integration any longer yourself, but the reply could help clarify things for others).

    Thanks again to both of you for your feedback πŸ™‚

    Agreed @nadworks same here…

    @barryhughes-1 i’m curious about the future updates.
    I’ve got a warning about the latest update 2.3.18 [2017-06-28] that it hasn’t been tested with the current version of WordPress 4.8

    Good luck!

    We missed updating the relevant tag, but there are no known issues using GigPress with WordPress 4.8 πŸ™‚
