Hello Event adds event management and ticket sales in an extremely easy way to any WordPress site! Just drop in the plugin and you’re ready to go. Welcome to the “Hello World” for events!
With this plugin you can easily create and manage events (like concerts, training camps or competitions). The events you create have fields for location, start and end dates (and optionally times for events that are not full-day events) and can be presented in different formats, both in lists and in calendars.
If you have installed WooCommerce you will be able to generate and sell tickets with a simple click. On the event page a link will point to the tickets in WooCommerce and in WooCommerce there will be a backlink from the ticket to the event. And in the backend dashboard you will immediately see how ticket sales progress for each event
Hello Event supports different date and time formats and is of course multi-lingual and currently comes with translations for English, French and Swedish. More languages will be added, and if you want to add other languages yourself, you can easily do that for example with the help of the Loco plugin.
Hello Event is iCal compatible and the event pages will display an “Add to calendar button” to allow users to insert the event into their calendars. The plugin can make use of external services to present the locations of events. For this purpose either Google Maps or OpenStreetMap may be used.
Although the plugin is perfect for use by the non-technical site creator, it is also developer-friendly with shortcodes, hooks and all styling provided by CSS that can be overridden. To get you going immediately the plugin will automatically show event-related information when a post of the “hello_event” custom type is presented. For more control, you can switch off the automatic insertion of the this information and use the shortcodes provided wherever you want.
To enhance the organic SEO of your site, all pages that present events provide Structured Data descriptions of the event – see Google documentation on Structured Data.
With Hello Event you can now use WooCommerce and all its different payment gateways to handle the ticket sales! Easy peasy!
