Support » Plugin: Events Manager » Waiting List, thumbnails, excluded list and other features

  • Resolved Lara C


    I’m using the free version, and it’s good so far, but need help with some features, and I don’t know if they are available in PRO.

    1 – Waiting List

    Is that possible to create an waiting list? I saw in another post that we can activate overbooking, and so if someone already confirmed to an event cancel, then we can aprove others in the list.

    Is that correct? I’m having trouble with this configuration.

    2 – Thumbnails widget

    Does Pro version has an widget with thumbnails, or shortcode, to add upcoming events in other pages? I checked “no” for “disable thumbnails” on config page, but don’t see the option to include event list with thumbnails.

    3 – Where the excluded go?

    There’s not an excluded list? I just excluded someone by mistake, what should I do?

    4 – Is there any other plugins?

    I saw a plugin for Events Manager and Woocommerce. Is there any oficial list of Event Manager plugins?

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

  • Hi Lara,
    EM user here too. 😉

    1 – Waiting List
    Nope. EM does not have this feature. “Overbooking” simply means that you will let an admin overrule the maximum available tickets. Personally, I am working on a Waiting List add-on, but I can not give you an ETA on that.

    2 – Thumbnails widget
    EM works with html placeholders & shortcodes. So you can simply use the Text Widget to create a widget yourself, styled to your personal needs. Just use the shortcode [events_list]Your widget markup per event here[/events_list]

    I am using this code myself (it can get you started) :
    <table class="sidebar-agenda">[events_list blog="all" pagination="0" limit="5" category="-5,-7"]<tr><td><a href="#_EVENTURL" title="#_EVENTNAME – #_CATEGORYNAME in #_LOCATIONTOWN on #_EVENTDATES at #_24HSTARTTIME o'clock."><div class="alignleft">#_EVENTIMAGE{55,55}</div><strong>#_CATEGORYNAME</strong><br>#_EVENTDATES<br>at #_24HSTARTTIME o'clock</a></td></tr>[/events_list]</table><a href="/events/" class="button">View the calendar</a>

    3 – Where the excluded go?
    What do you mean with this? EM does not have an option or setting “excluded”.

    4 – Is there any other plugins?
    There are indeed many third-party add-ons. As far as I know there is no “official” list. You can do a search in the WP repository, but there is even more to be found on Github. 😉
    If you are looking for something in particular, you can ask on this forum. Other users are very willing to help out.

    I have already created several EM add-ons. ust lick on my name above and you can see my contributions. 😉

    About the “excluded” it was a poor translation, I wanted to say “deleted” registrations.

    When you delete, it’s gone? Or can we recover somewhere?

    And about the other add-ons, I’ll see with client if there’s something that they want, and then check out.

    Many thanks again! =)

    about #3 sorry for the confusion but do you have additional details or screenshot where is this in particular?

    “Delete” means “delete”. 😉
    So as soon as you click “delete”, all that info is lost forever.

    Now, if you actually meant “rejected” (perhaps lost in translation), those bookings are still there, but not shown by default. You can use the dropdown filter in the bookings overview to change the shown booking statuses.
