Support » Plugin: Event post » Why don't you create a new post type for events?

  • I think your plugin concept is great except for one thing – it’s based on standard wordpress posts instead of creating its’ own post type for events, or otherwise, letting the admin designate which of the post types have event post features.

    That’s my 2 cents. I’d love to see it implemented one way or another 🙂 or even help out with coding this modification. Please feel free to contact me.

    I haven’t tried this plugin yet, but just so you know, I found it because I was looking for an event plugin that does NOT use custom post types.

    There are plenty of other plugins that use custom post types for events. Few allow you to make a regular post into an event.

    (My 2 cents. 😀 )



    It seems that it would be exactly what I am looking for, however short codes not working?

    [Eelv_news_form] shows the tag as it is (not processed)

    [Events_list] and [events_map] shows as a blank page.

    My web is configured as a WPMU (WordPress Multi-User) site using BuddyPress, the plugin is enabled only on the main site. It is likely that this plugin is not compatible with a WPMU type site, I would like the author to update this plugin to be compatible with a WPMU site please.

    Also I would like to suggest that instead of allowing a user to arbitrarily choose a colour to make an entry, have it so the admin chooses what colour the entry will be based on category (assign colour by category).
