EventPrime – Events Calendar

Description

EventPrime is an easy to use, beginner-friendly WordPress Events Calendar plugin. Using EventPrime, you can now create events with a single click. Just click on a date from the Events Calendar šŸ“… in the WordPress backend and begin creating an event starting from that date. Create free as well as paid Events by enabling Bookings šŸŽ« from EventPrime’s Event Settings. PayPal payment gateway is supported out-of-the-box. The EventPrime event plugin also allows you to create and assign Event Types, Performer(s), and Event Site(s) to your Events.

EventPrime is the newest event plugin built by the RegistrationMagic plugin team and in active development since past 12 months. EventPrimeĀ provides WordPress users the same level of control over event management that RegistrationMagicĀ provides over user registrations. We are eager to get as much feedback from you as possible on our new event booking plugin. Give it a go and let us know how we did.

Cheers, EventPrime Team

With EventPrime, you now have an event management system to create an event list the way you always wanted. No more difference between the event calendar you create from the back-end and the calendar that is visible to users on the front-end. The Event Calendar on the front-end will appear exactly the way you configure it from the back-end. Event management in WordPress is now as easy as it can ever be.

EventPrime is an event plugin that supports free event bookings, paid event bookings, single day events, multi-day events, event performers, event sites, event gallery, event registration, event calendar widget and a lot more. Check out our Starter Guide to get up and running with this awesome event manager tool.

EventPrime Front-end

Shortcodes

The Event Calendar

On the Front-end, EventPrime sports a beautiful yet convenient event calendar layout. The events can be displayed monthly, weekly, daily, event list, or as event cards. Hovering over any event in the calendar will display the event card in a pop-up. Viewers can see all information in brief about an event on this event card. Clicking on the event card will lead to the individual page for that event. Users can register as attendees for an event if event registration is enabled for it.

Directories

In addition to the comprehensive Events Calendar view, EventPrime offers complete directories for entities associated with events. The directory pages are created automatically on your site along with the installation and activation of EventPrime. The directories include:

  • Event Types
  • Event Sites & Locations
  • Performers

Single Entities

EventPrime also allows you to create individual entity pages using shortcodes with ID parameter. You can setup individual pages for:

  • Single Event
  • Single Event Type
  • Single Event Site & Location
  • Single Performer

User Account Area

The Directory and Single entity pages are for displaying Events and related entities. For a user to see his/her own activity with events, our event booking plugin offers a full-fledged User Account Area on the front-end. With this EventPrime page, users can login and manage their event booking. Users can also cancel their event booking and find directions to Event Sites where Events are booked.

Widgets

EventPrime offers you 4 highly useful widgets to setup anywhere on your site. These are:

  • Countdown Event Widget- This is a reverse countdown to upcoming events which you can select from the Widget settings. The upcoming events countdown displays the Days, Hours, Minutes and Seconds left till the event goes live.
  • Slider Event Widget – This widget is a slideshow of the Featured Images from various Events on your site. Clicking on a Feature Image from the slideshow will lead to that Event’s individual page.
  • Calendar Event Widget – A smaller view of the Events Calendar that lists upcoming events underneath it.
  • Event Site Map – This widget contains Google Map with markers of all Event Sites & Locations.

What’s Next?

EventPrime is in active development with a lot of features planned ahead. Here’s a quick glimpse of what we have in queue for the future…

  • Recurring Events – One of the primary uses of an event planner system is to plan a series of events, that recur at specific intervals, well in advance. EventPrime team understands this and is working on introducing recurring events to its event planner toolset soon.
  • Multiple Payment Gateways – It is always important for an event organiser to accept event booking payments with their choice of payment gateway. EventPrime event booking plugin is going to make it easier for event organiser by adding more payment gateways. In addition to the existing payment gateway support with PayPal.
  • Import/Export Events – No event organiser or event planner tool can work standalone. That is why EventPrime team is going to add Import/Export events feature to work with other popular event management tools.
  • More Event List Widgets – We plan to add more widgets to our event list plugin. Widgets such as Featured Events, Recommended Events, Most Popular Events etc. Our aim with these widgets is to propel EventPrime to become the best event list plugin for WordPress.
  • Save Events – Event attendees find it easier when they are able to save preferred events to their user accounts for future reference. The EventPrime event list plugin will soon give this power to such event attendees.
