  • There’s two features that I would absolutely love to have in EO.

    1) An RSS feed that will post the event a week before it is set to start – this will let me post a link to the event on Twitter reminding people to show up or book tickets for the event.

    2) Mailing list summary. I would like to be able to have a weekly or fortnightly email which summarises all the events coming up for the next 4 weeks.

    I’ve been wrecking my brain trying to find something that can do parsing of the .ics file for both of these features (which I guess would be the ideal solution) but haven’t been able to find a solution so far.

  • I think this is too niche to have in EO, but its entirely possible with some custom code.

    A mailing list, and scheduled publications of events / posting to RSS feeds would be interesting add-ons though! Unfortunately I don’t have the time at the moment. But I am trying to encourage third-party developers to make add-ons for EO, so I’m working on improving documentation and provided hooks/actions (

    As I said, though, the above features are possible now, I can outline how they might be done:

    For RSS:

    For the mailing list

    • Create a WP cron job to be triggered every week/fortnightly
    • Create a cron job to be triggered every week
    • Query events using eo_get_events (see docs similar to above.
    • Create the e-mail content from the returned events, then send via wp_mail() (codex).
