Eventify – An Event management plugin for wordpress.

Current Version: 1.8.a

Eventify is the first of my many to come, wordpress plugin(s). I developed it for, they were looking for a plugin that would do the job of showing up coming events and was easy to mange and install.

With Eventify:

1. One can edit the CSS for the popups to virtually anything!
2. Display next “n” events or Display events happening in the next “n” days.
3. Widget uses plain javascript and does not interefere with any other scripts loaded e.g. jquery, etc.
4. Bulk upload events into the database using excel csv format. *Please view the [how to video]( first – which is a little outdated just note there are 6 columns now in the order of title, date, time, desc, venue, event timezone*.
5. You can show events as popups or as wordpress posts.
6. Repeating and Multi-day events support has been added since 1.8.a. and images/links can now be used.
7. Use [eventifytag] anywhere in POST/Text Widget/PAGE to display the list of upcoming events.
8. Back up all your events and restore anytime How To Video

**Tag Usage**

To display events as list on a page/post/text widget use the following shortcode

[eventifytag displaytype="events" displayno="1"]

displaytype can be either “events” or “days” and displayno has to be a valid number.

If you set the displaytype as “events” – Next *n* number of events will be listed. This number is set using the “displayno” parameter.

If you set the displaytype as “days” – Events occuring in the next *n* days will be listed. This number is set using the “displayno” parameter.

Bulk Upload How-to

Please Note: Now there are five fields instead of four and all the five have to be there while uploading using CSV. Fields should be in this order -> Event Title, Event Date, Event Time, Event Desc, Event Venue & Event Time Zone ->This order only. Rest everything remains the same as the video above.

    Thanks for the great plugin!
    I’m working on a Mac and in the normal Eventify “settings” window the calendar to enter the event-date doesn’t pop up. this happens on Safari and Chrome. I only see a very thin frame.
    Is there the option to display past events?
    Is it possible to change the date-format global?

      Hi Karsten,

      Thanks for the pat on the back! I think another JS is interfering with the JS on eventify. I will have to take a closer look.

      Yes, to display past events, just select proper value when of X days in the settings, giving enough room for past events.

      I working on the Date format bit. Currently in the process of revamping this site and I know I have been sitting on a new version of Eventify for a very long time, sorry about that. But I promise you I haven’t given up on Eventify yet!

    i was in need of a plugin in which the form is customizable according to what i need the second it comes as a post or comment to me not straight published which then i authorize it to be publish then comes in a calender as well as in a customizable list with pic logo on it , and last every item on list opens in its own page with the pics and the information on it. do you think you can make some thing like this i am happy to discuss the money if it is a motivation. but you have done very good job till now . i think its best around.
    let me know if you are interested in it

    GREAT PLUGIN! I’ve searched high and low for something like this. Totally customizable which is ideal. Crazy question, on the “Add Event Widget”, is there any plans on simply making that a pop up window down the road? It takes quite a bit of space on the sidebar. It would be ideal to have a simple button “add event” that triggers a pop up box that contains all the necessary fields. Thanks….

    I love your Eventify. Just one thing is missing: How can I display the weekday before the date in the widget by using the upcoming events? It would be nice so people do not have to look the date up.

    Hi there

    Wow super great work. Love your plugin it’s exactly what I need.
    I have a problem with the Pop-Up. When I add an Event as a Pop-Up an afterwards clicking on the Eventlink to show the Details it doesn’t open the popUp I get a 404. Somehow I have a javascript error: jQuery(”a.qtip-target[title]“).qtip is not a function.

    Did you already had a problem like this an can help me?

      April 10, 2012 at 1:30 pm

      Yes, and I can tell you its a JS lib/code that is interfering. This should be taken care of in the next release coming up in June.

    I’m using your plugin for a client ( url listed in website field ) and just upgraded to the newest version of Eventify – the side bar widget is no longer loading events that are popup or page based.

    It is loading the copy I’ve added in the widget – but nothing I do seems to get the events to show up in the side bar. Can you please advise?

    First of all – this is one of my favourite plug-ins in this area, thanks so much.

    I would love to give users with the ‘editor’ role (so not just admins) the ability to add events when logged in. So from the sidebar, instead of the widget.

    I hoped to find a way to change access levels, but didn’t finy any. Hope you can help me with this!

    Thank you for the nice plugin. I tested the plugin and I found some problems.
    Bug Report : (1) When add eventify on right sidebar through widget it extends to outside of right sidebar, and box size appears too big. (2) After adding an event through sidebar as a visitor, the event is not automatically displayed on the event box (widget). When try to reload the page (event box at this time empty) to show the latest added event, the event adds twice ! (3) When clicking the display events widget (in chrome 13), no pop is shown instead the page goes to black, when clicking it goes off.
    Help Needed : I need to customize it, like,
    (1)Instead of time start and time end, need to show event start date and end date through calendar.
    (2) Instead of time zone I need to add website of the event.
    (3) When event popup is shown, the description should be shown only at the end and stripped the long description to two or three sentence.

      Its probably something in the theme file which is causing this to be! Please check on a plain vanilla install of WP with the default theme, first and let me know if it still gives problems.

    Your plugin would be ideal for my current project if I can make it work for me.
    I installed the plugin and everything seemed fine until I tried to enter an event. I get an message that says “Event Added!” but when I scroll down to the Event list it’s not there. I’ve tried it a few times – it’s just not saving my events. :? My site is running on PHP 5.2. Not sure what to do. Do you have any idea what could be the problem?

    Otherwise, it looks like a great plugin. :) Hope I’m able to use it! :!

      Hi again,
      Thanks for your prompt response. I tested plugins and themes and this is what I found:
      1. The Eventify from under Settings Now the calendar in the date picker in the plugin settings page does not work when I’m using Tubepress is also active.
      2. the tag [eventifycalbig] doesn’t display the google-style calendar in my Events page:
      when I use the current theme. I will work if I use the WP Twenty10 theme. Unfortunately I have to keep using the current theme.
      I don’t know why those plugin/themes break it or how I can fix it. Any suggestions?

      A few questions & requests:
      - Is there a minimum width needed for the calendar to display correctly?
      - I want to be able to approve or deny (monitor) the event posts by guests. Is there a way to do that?
      - If I add a post as a pop-up will it still be visible as a post in the archives and RSS?
      - It’d be great to offer the users a way to add a photo or flyer – either from a URL or uploading from their own computers.

      Thanks so much!!

    Really like the plugin. It was exactly what I was looking for. I am running into a problem with the calendar feature. I am using the “[eventifycalbig]” shortcode but running into a problem with the javascript populating the “#calendarem” div. The javascript shows in the DOM and is filled with the correct data, however it doesn’t fill the div at all, thus causing the calendar not to be displayed. Is this usually a conflict between libraries?

    Awesome plugin, thanks for sharing.

    I had a couple questions, does it tie into posts even if I only use pop-up? I ask since I am using with CRM theme that could be conflicting. I am also setting this up on a multisite installation, does it work? I have added it and tried adding events and nothing appears, even though it says added successfully. I deactivated and resinstalled and didn’t work. I also recently upgraded to WP 3.1, not sure that matters or not.

    Thanks for any insights on your part.

      Hi Steven,

      You cannot directly use the shortcode within a .php file, you can use a filter that call’s the function that the shortcode associates with. Why don’t you set up a sidebar in the in footer and just use the widget that comes with the plugin?

    Eventify seems very cool to me. I am anxious to use it. Am relativey new to WordPress, so just have a few quick questions:
    1) I tried typing in mock-events into the Eventify Control Panel, with all the fields filled-out, including event venue, time, time zone, etc. Then I followed the instrictuons by adding into my code:
    [eventifytag displaytype="events" displayno="2"]
    But the result was not what I expected. My webpage did not list eventything, it just showed:
    02/09/2011 – First Event Title
    02/10/2011 – Second Event Title

    I would like it to list all of the fields (I thought it would automatically). How can I do that? Also, how can I change the date format so that it will be 10am February 10, 2011?

    2) I am living in China and for some reason the video on your site is blocked here. I downloaded the EventifyEg.csv list. Do I have to update and upload it into a particular directory? Or how does that work? I assume it’s just a matter of updating that file, uploading and then the Eventify events will be updated.

    Sorry I am relatively new to WordPress, I hope my questions are not too basic.


    BTW, I think your website is great. Especially like the tutorial.

      February 9, 2011 at 4:28 pm
      Author: Designerfoo

      Hi SAM,

      1. The short tag you used works perfectly, it displays the first 2 events that occurring first, please watch the videos on this page to know more about using the plugin. If you cannot view the videos directly, use a proxy like hidemyass[dot]com. The rest of the fields are visible once you click on the event.

      2. You just have to change the values in the csv file and then upload.

      Don’t worry about the questions, if you have more, email me directly :) Happy Day!

    I have been using this plugin for a little while, but have recently experienced a problem – the box where you type the date of your event will not allow anyone to click or input anything. This means we cannot create new events. It happens in both the backend WP admin area and through the widget interface. I have tried uninstalling, deleting then reinstalling the plugin, but no joy.

    Can you suggest anything that might help? There is a shortage of really good, simple events plugins and this one was so useful – when it worked!

    Thanks for the previous reply … Now I have a real problem … Somewhat foolishly I installed Eventify on the live site “” and used the sidebar widget with a title of “Events soon”. The widget never displayed in the sidebar apart from the title which remain on the “home” page. I deactivated Eventify to try to get the widget showing, but now I have the titkle of the widget remaining and the page load times drastically increased. Other links from the “home” page seen to display and load at normal speeds, but importantly do not show the title remnant.
    I understand that it outside your remit to provide whole site support, but these issues have arisen since installing Eventify. I do have other issues too since the installation of Eventify like new content not showing and changes to content not showing even though in Dashboard the changes are visible!
    Any thoughts would be very welcome!

    Great plugin! It is exactly what we need for our community members.

    However, I want to put 4 questions/comments.
    First, if I chose an option POP UP by submitting an event, when I try then to open the event, I must scroll up to the upper part of my browser. I know that I have to scroll, but many people wouldn’t as they would thing smth is not working…
    Second, is there any way that I choose the category where the event as a POST get’s automatically published? Uncategorized seems very bad on a website…
    Third as I edit the info on an event, which initially has been submitted as event-type-post, the post doesn’t get overwritten. So you have manually to fix the content (for example change in the hour/date). Can you think maybe of that…
    Fourth, as you have the default option ‘close the option to chose between pop up and post’, by default you will have only pop up.
    Is there a way that you can implement in the admins’ settings to choose the default to be only as post?

    I’d really appreciate if you can take a look at my points, esp. point number 2) :) )) Thanks a lot!

      Hi Derfeluk,

      You can modify the date structure via the widget, where there is a dropdown with four date format options. I am currently working on a complete overhaul of the plugin, and the alpha will be out in october, it will have a lot of things same, but a lot of things simple and more integrated.

    Eventify works great !

    It would be nice in next version to be able to chose the colour of the event for the full page calandar!
    A ) It would be a good way (and maybe easy) to create visual categories, and with a quick look, everyone would see the related events.
    B) If 2 events are the same day, now they almost look like only one !

    Otherwise, it is simple, easy and already with some cool and usefull options !

      Hi Stan,

      Thanks for the pat on the back. Sure A and B are both feasible and will be added in the next update, which is due in october this year, long wait I know, but it will be worth it :)

    Hi, I think my theme is interfering with the javascript popup for the eventifytag. Can you take a quick peek and let me know what you think? Look at the bottom middle of the page, you can click the event title and nothing happens.

    Thanks for any help you can provide! I’ll be sure to donate some $ if I can get this plugin working.

    I’m adding events but some don’t show up in the listing widget. Any idea what could have caused this? The site I have this plugin installed is I’ve added a number of events, maybe around 7 and 4 are showing. The other three are posts on the Blog, but I went through the Add Events process to try and them up. I’ve attempted multiple times, still doesn’t work.

    Hi, I’m testing your plug in on a subdomain on my website, it looks great so far, roughly it’s exactly the model I need – nice idea.
    I am trying to use the bulk uploader, but it won’t work. I have the format exactly as is demonstrated on your video, and I have made the text the same, to try to find the reason it won’t upload. I am using csv, as required, and 6 cols, I just can’t seem to get it up there. It does something, but the once it’s done it the file disappears from the upload box and does not appear as uploaded.
    I can enter a single event easily. Can you help?

    Can’t wait to see the new release! Is there a possibility that submitted events can go into a certain post category i.e. “Events” and get sent into a moderation queue before publishing? We’d even pay for you to customize it to include those features.

      I am adding the feature of categories and adding events to a particular category if they are post based events. Moderation queue is something that I don’t think, at the least, at this moment will be released, but sure, if you did like me to customize the plugin for you, mail me and we chat there :) I am very affordable! :D

        Thanks for the reply. I’ve been out of pocket but will be in touch soon regarding customization. We are looking to switch away from the Viva Events plugin we now use (which posts events to the front page as the event date approaches) to your plugin should this work. Our current plugin is based on TDO mini forms I believe. Here is the current submission form:

        Yours is so much cleaner with the Ajax and all and I think it would reduce the number of tech support requests we get from our submitters.

      If you can edit the code and replace all str_ireplace with str_replace, that should do it, but I would require some more info to help you, like the version of PHP installed, etc.

    First of all, thanks for your contribution to the wordpress community. I must admit your calendar is simply excellent.

    I have just one… ok… maybe two questions concerning the problem I faced recently. I want to use this calendar as a chess tournament announcer (, saying that the calendar will be mostly used as a post-feeder for the website. What I need here is… I just want to be able to access those posts directly from the calendar window by clicking on one of them. Is it possible? Or maybe it should work like that, but I’m doing something wrong?

    There is one another thing. Since I’m using POST instead of POPUP option in general, is it possible to disable the popup cloud at all or at least to show it without the description field? The announcments that I’m willing to post on my website are always kind of long texts. This situation causes some particular troubles with loading of javascript, meaning if I have long text to publish everything is going right until I want to see the results. Even though the data is stored in the database and I can see posts as well, my calendar is not showing up and it definitely has to do something with the length of the string.

    Thanks in advance for help.

      I would be willing to customize, the plugin for you. The new releases of the plugin, 1.7.d fixes alot of issues with the calendar, see if it works for you now…

    I love your plug-in Eventify! One problem though – after I have installed it, I was able to add an event from the control panel, however the widget in the website will not show the calendar to select the date and it does not allow me to type in the date either.

    What can I do to remedy this issue? Thanks so much!

      This seems like a jQuery and another JS Lib conflict issue atleast in the frontend, if you are using a theme, which is custom made, etc, it is either implicitly and directly importing jquery OR its using another JS lib that may be conflicting with the eventify’s date picker, if you can provide a link, I will be able to tell you more about the same. Thanks for using the plugin!

    great plugin, it is exactly what i was seeking. the only problem im having is that i use the widget in the footer of my site. when the modal window is triggered it measures document height, not screen height to define where the modal displays, thus requiring the site visitor to scroll up to the top of the document to see the modal. is there a way to use screen height instead?

    the screen height variable seems to be loaded with document height (simply swapping to the ‘window’ argument doesnt work):
    var maskHeight = jQuery(document).height();

    thanks for making such a useful plugin!

    I use your eventify plugin, and perhaps for the next issue, you can make it compatible W3C.
    In eventify.class.php about line 914, you put a link attribute in the body tag instead that in the head tag.

    Perhaps, can you put it in the function add_js_css_theme ?

    Hi Manoj, Eventify Is very simple and that’s great, but can you make it to work with the plugin (Mingle) mingle is a community plugin. if you could make a version where the user can upload there events to there “profile editor” in the mingle plugin so it will show up on the “profile” page in a section on the page or make it when people press there event button a shadowbox pops up with all there events they uploaded in the frame, and at the same time there should be a main event page where all the users events are listed on a page in alphabetical order by state and city That would be Great. Thank You For You and Your Plugin.

    Hope to see it Soon, That it would be Great!

    Love the plugin, but it doesn’t like my site. It locks the up down scroll bar in IE8. Works fine in other browsers (Safari, Chrome, FireFox). Compatibility problem with theme?

    @robert I have added the date support and venue support in 1.1.c :) hope thats fine now.. as for the time zones, I quite did not understand where would you like these? To be displayed on the widget ?

    I was wondering – instead of the css styled “popup”, is it possible to enable it for use with Shadowbox / Lightbox etc?

    Also – I agree with the date formatting – it really needs to go International !!
    Is it possible to put this in the options section?

      Hi Craig,

      I will work on the lightbox/shadowbox popup. For now I have added the date formatting option and added a venue field too.. hope this helps.. The new version is 1.1.c

    great plugin. I have a suggestion for you. could you make it a bit more international? I really need dates in DD/MM/YYYY format rather than MM/DD/YYYy format.

    Should ne easy enough to pick this up from the WP Date Format constant?

    Keep up the good work

        Would also be good if you could include an optional time field and possibly a location?

        That would make me very happy :-)

    thanks so much!

      Get into the plugins folder. There would be a CSS folder, inside that there is a file called – popup_widget.css – you can use this file to edit and margin’s, make the popup appear any way you like :)

        Hi, I was wondering if I can edit the information shown on the pop up. For example Im not interested in showing the “end time” or the “timezone”.

        1. which file should I go and edit for the above?
        2. from which file the pop up “calls” the date/info etc?

        Best regards, great plugin

    the video was great. its a very good needed plugin, no doubt. congrats for the initiative.

    one more suggestion, there should be an option to give a hyper link for that event with a post already published on the net

    i tried this in a wp-mu site. after adding the event, the admin page went white. when refreshed, the event was not there!. so its not properly working in wp-mu

      Hi ONS, sorry for the wp-mu mess up.. I haven’t tested for wp-mu yet, just trying to make it through the next release which would be hopefully next week, but before that I have to finish this site :)

    Great idea! I just happened to be looking for this capability. Two observations: 1) the time drop down in the admin panel needs to be a bit wider; and 2) you should add a time zone field. Cheers!

      Hey Jon,

      Thanks for the pat on the back :) Glad you liked it.. Will definitely add the time zone and time drop fields :)

    Hi Damien,

    Could you point out where and which line the error is, I can correct it for future releases. Thanks.

    Hi designerfoo,

    If I remember good, the errors are the following:
    - line 935 : Close It => miss space between “#” and class=”

    - line 946 : miss ALT attribute for img tag.
    & there is a problem W3C with the tag div here but I don’t understand why.

    - add in function add_js_css_theme()
    the line echo ” . “\n”;

    in eventify.widget.php
    remove the line echo ” . “\n”; (don’t remember the line)

    I think that I put everything.

    best regards

    Yes, but you may have to code a bit. The file is within the PHP folder, called eventify.class.php
