Your organization puts on events and you need a way to create, manage, and display those events for maximum exposure. You need a place to collect RSVP’s, spread the word about your events through social networking channels, maybe even charge for those events and collect payments online – not just at the event. We’ll, we’ve got you covered – with the Events + plugin.
For years, creating and managing live events was the work of a few savvy party planners; people who could make your event a very personal experience, yet also one that appealed to enough to achieve the intended goal – to create buzz, raise money or awareness, or just to have an old-fashioned blow out. There are so many details that go into planning an event few developers have successfully integrated that functionality with our online world. That is, until WPMUDEV brought us the Events+ plugin.
Events+ is Powerful Event and Booking System
Earlier this week we featured Seth Shoultes over on the WP Plugins blog. Seth is from Salt Lake City in Utah. He developed the Event Espresso plugin which you can buy straight from WP Plugins. On Monday he introduced us to his wife, his cute little boy, his dogs, and his love of coffee. I wonder if that’s where the title for his plugin from, eh? :)
A new major player arrived on the scene for BuddyPress communities. I’d like to introduce you to TikiPress, a new plugin that combines event management, ticketing, BuddyPress, EventPress and WP E-commerce. Intrigued?
Essentially TikiPress allows you to create events, tickets as products, attendees, and everything you need to organize events. The combination of these three major plugins gives you social networking, ticketing, and full-featured event management right out of the box.
Collect payments for your event
Set attendance limits / Ticket stock
Collect attendee data on the Checkout Page via the TikiPress Survey Tool
We’ve just released a major update to the BuddyPress group calendar plugin.

Added email notification of new events. Configurable by group admins and individual user preference as well. Also you can set the default for all groups via a define in the plugin file header.
Fixed defines for default settings at head of file. Choose default permissions, group email on/off
