FAQ

Are there any troubleshooting steps I should try before I post a new thread in the support forum?

First, make sure that you’re running the latest version of Event Tickets. If you’ve got any other add-ons, make sure those are current and running the latest code as well. Also be sure to check our knowledgebase.

The most common issues we see are either plugin or theme conflicts. You can test if a plugin or theme is conflicting by manually deactivating other plugins until just Event Tickets is running on your site. If the issue persists, revert to the default Twenty Twenty theme. If the issue is resolved after deactivating a specific plugin or your theme, you’ll know that is the source of the conflict.

Note that we aren’t going to say β€œtough luck” if you identify a plugin/theme conflict. While we can’t guarantee 100% integration with any plugin or theme out there, we will do our best (and reach out the plugin/theme author as needed) to figure out a solution that benefits everyone.

I’m still stuck. Where do I go to file a bug or ask a question?

Free plugin users can post in the Event Tickets support forum on WordPress.org. Our team reviews that forum weekly to look for bug reports.

If you’re already an Event Tickets Plus subscriber, you’re entitled to our actively-monitored Premium Support on our website. Generally, except in times of increased support loads, we reply to all premium support tickets within 24 hours during the business week.

What’s the difference between Event Tickets and Events Tickets Plus?

Event Tickets is our free ticketing plugin that has all the basics you need to sell tickets and collect RSVPs on your website. You can use Event Tickets with or without The Events Calendar.

Event Tickets Plus is a premium plugin that runs alongside Event Tickets and enhances it with extra features, including custom registration fields, shortcodes, WooCommerce integration, our mobile ticketing app and more.

Read more to learn which plugin is right for you.

Do I need The Events Calendar to run Event Tickets?

Nope! Event Tickets works with or without The Events Calendar. Even if you don’t have The Events Calendar, you can create RSVPs and tickets on WordPress pages and posts.

Can I email attendees using Event Tickets?

Yes. Event Tickets automatically sends an email confirmation after attendees register or RSVP for an event. If the attendee purchases a ticket, the confirmation email will also provide a ticket to scan at the door for admission.

What add-ons are available for Event Tickets, and where can I read more about them?

The following add-ons are available for The Events Calendar:

  • Events Calendar Pro, for adding premium calendar features like recurring events, advanced views, cool widgets, shortcodes, additional fields, and more!
  • Event Aggregator, a service that effortlessly fills your calendar with events from Meetup, Google Calendar, iCalendar, Eventbrite, CSV, and ICS.

Reviews

20 October 2021
A very well done plugin, simple and easy to use.
10 October 2021
My big complaint is that Event Tickets Plus, a chargeable add-on for the sale of tickets does not correctly support the Block editor. That alone is very poor, but was acknowledged more than a month ago without a fix, a fix date or even a listing on the 'known bugs' page. I have been able to make it work but only by continually switching between the older editor and the block editor. Further, there are features missing. There is no option to create a duplicate of events and tickets. I have the same multiple formats of tickets and have to manually enter them every time. There is also no good way to use WooCommerce analytics or the Tickets plug in to easily see sales of tickets over time. Every event has to be checked manually. I could do something with SQL I guess, but this should be a basic feature. Once the tickets are created, the system seems to work fine.

Easy to use and configure and high functionality even in the free version
13 September 2021
..it seems to be exactly what our community group needs. However, I have been unable to get it to work and the support for the free version consists of posting to the forum and hoping someone will help. Sadly, help has not been forthcoming so we are unable to use this element of the Events calendar. Such a shame
7 September 2021
Since I purchased it, I've had to offset dates/times because it changes the date that it displays. Most of the time I get javascript errors when creating events and it doesn't work. Support is not at all helpful. RSVP/Ticket buttons randomly show up or don't.
