I can't believe the scope of this product! There are so many features that are available. You can have a fully functioning events page with ticketing, payments, RSVP, Calendar... the whole shebang. And all for free! I did however choose to support these awesome developers and their products by donating. I hope they keep up the good work and continue to release updates. Thank you so much!

very good plugin really free. Needs time to understand how it works and to configure it but then works very well. I recommend it especially for clubs that want to have a functional registration system without spending too much.

Registro de cambios

2.2.78 (2022/05/16)

  • Fix leftover php issue in ExpressiveDate.php so it works with php 8.1 and older

2.2.77 (2022/05/15)

  • Fix some php issues (trying to be ok with php 8.1 seems more daunting than expected)

2.2.76 (2022/05/15)

  • Add filter eme_wp_userdata_filter, which allows you to set extra info for the WP user being created after a booking (if that option is set)
    The current EME person is given as argument (array), the result should be an array that is accepted by wp_update_user
  • Fix waitinglist management in case a booking is not paid for but booking approval is not required
  • Check free seats just before the payment form is shown, in case pending bookings are considered as free we need to make sure at the moment of payment seats are actually available
  • If the option is set to consider pending bookings as free seats, pending bookings younger than 5 minutes are considered as occupied seats as well as to avoid possible clashes with slow payments (only if online payment for that event is possible)
  • Added the possibility to filter on category in bookings overview
  • Added #_YOUNGPENDINGSEATS: gives the number of pending seats younger than 5 minutes for an event (those are counted as occupied too, even if pending seats are considered as free)
  • Added #_YOUNGPENDINGSEATS{xx} gives the number of pending seats younger than 5 minutes for the xx-th seat category for a multi-seat event
  • Include all member attachments in mails to the contact person

2.2.75 (2022/05/06)

  • Fix BCC mail sending
  • Add option for newsletter sub/unsub per person too (the automatic mail for new events)
  • Add extra SEO permalink prefixes for calendar and payments
  • Added placeholder #_BOOKING_CONFIRM_URL (which gives a nicer link for a booker to confirm his booking if permalinks are active, not just the payment url)

2.2.74 (2022/04/25)

  • Allow filter on email settings, so you can e.g. change server/port/… based on the ‘to’
    The filter is called eme_filter_mail_options and takes 1 array as argument:
    $mail_options=array(
    ‘fromMail’,
    ‘fromName’,
    ‘toMail’,
    ‘toName’,
    ‘replytoMail’,
    ‘replytoName’,
    ‘bcc_addresses’,
    ‘mail_send_method’, // smtp, mail, sendmail, qmail, wp_mail
    ‘send_html’, // true or false
    ‘smtp_host’,
    ‘smtp_encryption’, // none, tls or ssl
    ‘smtp_verify_cert’, // true or false
    ‘smtp_port’,
    ‘smtp_auth’, // 0 or 1, false or true
    ‘smtp_username’,
    ‘smtp_password’,
    ‘smtp_debug’, // true or false
    );
    The return should be the filtered (changed) array
  • Optionally show event categories in bookings
  • Make «#_SINGLE_EVENTPAGE_EVENTID» placeholder work as expected
  • Add generic placeholder #_SINGLE_EVENTPAGE_LOCATIONID, returning the location id of the event currently being shown (so you can e.g. show a location map of the current event in a widget)
  • Add generic placeholder #_SINGLE_LOCATIONPAGE_LOCATIONID, returning the location id of the location currently being shown (so you can e.g. show a location map of the current location in a widget)
  • #_PAYMENT_URL placeholder (also used to have the user confirm a booking) was not showing the link if online payment for the event was not possible

  • Delete old answers for custom fields for people if appropriate (when the custom formfield is no longer present) if updating the person in the backend
  • Allow 0/empty as value for planned actions «Schedule the automatic removal of unpaid pending bookings older than» and «Schedule the automatic removal of unconfirmed bookings older than»
  • Correct Donate button

2.2.71 (2022/04/09)

  • Better plan cron (WP only takes 24 hours in a day, not taking summer/winter timezones into account)
