GigPress is wonderful, but I can't really rate it 5/5, because the default show listing isn't responsive.
In order to make the show listing responsive, you need to do quite drastic changes to the templates. Not for the inexperienced.
I hope this will change, now that Modern Tribe is behind the wheel.
I've been using Gigpress for years and it's still the most solid events plugin. Never had issues!
Its early days but this looks like a great plugin - easy to use and just what I needed.
I use this plugin on serveral sites, it works perfect and does a really good job. With csv export data is save for any future changes.
A cool feature would be a search function for locations to edit them. Looking through the whole list is a task if one forgot the exact location name... :p
Other thing would be to have one central database to access from different band sites. I log every gig on my personal and on the band site. As long as there isn't a gig every week it's not a big deal.
Been using this one for years on multiple musicians' and bands' sites. Totally solid. Easy to work with, very thorough documentation.
Great plugin. The developer didn't take any shortcuts and goes above and beyond to make this friendly for anyone to use. I wish more plugins were developed this way. There is tons of documentation for developers to integrate this into their theme and make this plugin completely customized to themes. For people who are fine with using the plugin as is, it has great shortcode options and a widget to quickly add events to your site. The most valuable part of the plugin though is the fact that it works with google structured data so your events show up in google search results.
Most of the good event plugins on wordpress.org require you to purchase a premium version to actually get it to work how you want. This plugin gives you everything up front. Would recommend this above all other event plugins for musicians.
Lots of options. Shortcodes, template tags, widgets... a fairly robust and great plugin. Love it!
I use Gigpress for an independent singer/songwriter. It does all we need and more - plus it was easy to fine-tune to our special needs. Great!
I'm a musician and have used it on my sites, friend's Websites, and commercial Websites. It's a fantastic plugin that should be part of any band Website powered by WordPress.
This app is a godsend. Very easy to use and helps make booking shows a much more streamlined process. Great job, guys. What a brilliant tool.
If at all possible in future updates, this is the only feature on my wishlist:
Allow users to update & tag their Upcoming Tour Dates Page. Right now, the app lets you tag or create a WP Post with the show info, which is very handy, but the WP Page with the full list of all of our show dates is what really needs to be updated. If a Post & Page could be tagged at the same time, even better.
Again, fantastic app. Thanks for all of your hard work.
