Support » Plugin: WP Event Manager » One of the WORST plugins

  • I get there’s a lot of praise out there for this plugin, but from a developer’s perspective, I have to say this is one of the worst architected and managed projects in the WP ecosphere. There have been a number of breaking updates, with no noticeable improvements in areas related to user experience/interaction, granular control over the view system and database optimization. I have this installed for one client, and their daily frustration with this system is a major point of stress for both of us. Their documentation is poor. The plugin has an extreme over-reliance on the WP post object, and I’m concerned its only a matter of time for a security hole to open up, exposing the post table to problems.

    DO NOT RECOMMEND.

    @madrid2020,

    Are you sure that you are using our plugin ? WP Event Manager? Because we did not found any query from you in our support forum of WordPress Org and our Support Ticket system.

    You mentioned poor documentation but that also not true in our case https://wp-eventmanager.com/knowledge-base/.

    Also, we do not given frequent breaking updates and plugin itself do not have extreme over-reliance on the WP post object too.

    Other plugin with same name Event Manager so may be it?

    Can you please recheck and let us know if it is not our plugin and kindly please revert review and if it is our plugin then we are ready to help you at any level.

    Thank you for understanding.

    Regards
    WP Event Manager

    Nope, its your plugin. Look at this logic, for example:

    if (
     get_event_location($post)=='Online Event' || 
     get_event_location($post) == '' || 
     $post->_event_online =='yes' 
    )
        return true;
        else
        return false;
    }

    If the event location is empty, even if I specify “NO” for “Online Event”, it still shows it’s an Online Event! This is terrible! AND THIS ONE ISSUE IS MAKING MY CLIENT CRAZY. Cmon, you really need to unit test your work. It’s painfully obvious that you don’t.

    And this code too:

    function display_event_location( $map_link = true, $post = null ) {
    
    	$location = get_event_location( $post );
    
    	if(is_event_online())
    	{
    		echo apply_filters( 'display_event_location_anywhere_text', __( 'Online Event', 'wp-event-manager' ) );
    	}
    	else if ( $location ) {
    
    		if ( $map_link )
    			echo apply_filters( 'display_event_location_map_link', '<a  href="http://maps.google.com/maps?q=' . urlencode( $location ) . '&zoom=14&size=512x512&maptype=roadmap&sensor=false" target="_blank">' . $location . '</a>', $location, $post );
    		else
    			echo  $location;
    
    	} else {
    
    		echo  apply_filters( 'display_event_location_anywhere_text', __( 'Online Event', 'wp-event-manager' ) );
    	}
    }

    The system defaults to “Online Event” regardless of what I define in the fields. If I leave the location empty, and set “No” for the “Online Event” field, it still returns “Online Event.” Plus, if the Location field forces the calendar to link the text with a google map. What if I don’t want it to do that? Can I leave the link off? Your code says that I can’t. There’s so many forced and hard coded decisions that you make for end users. What if I don’t want a roadmap? What if I want a higher/lower zoom factor on the map? What if I want to use Apple maps?
