FAQ

Are there any troubleshooting steps I should try before I post a new thread in the support forum?

First, make sure that you’re running the latest version of Event Tickets. If you’ve got any other add-ons, make sure those are current and running the latest code as well. Also be sure to check our knowledgebase.

The most common issues we see are either plugin or theme conflicts. You can test if a plugin or theme is conflicting by manually deactivating other plugins until just Event Tickets is running on your site. If the issue persists, revert to the default Twenty Twenty theme. If the issue is resolved after deactivating a specific plugin or your theme, you’ll know that is the source of the conflict.

Note that we aren’t going to say β€œtough luck” if you identify a plugin/theme conflict. While we can’t guarantee 100% integration with any plugin or theme out there, we will do our best (and reach out the plugin/theme author as needed) to figure out a solution that benefits everyone.

I’m still stuck. Where do I go to file a bug or ask a question?

Free plugin users can post in the Event Tickets support forum on WordPress.org. Our team reviews that forum weekly to look for bug reports.

If you’re already an Event Tickets Plus subscriber, you’re entitled to our actively-monitored Premium Support on our website. Generally, except in times of increased support loads, we reply to all premium support tickets within 24 hours during the business week.

What’s the difference between Event Tickets and Events Tickets Plus?

Event Tickets is our free ticketing plugin that has all the basics you need to sell tickets and collect RSVPs on your website. You can use Event Tickets with or without The Events Calendar.

Event Tickets Plus is a premium plugin that runs alongside Event Tickets and enhances it with extra features, including custom registration fields, shortcodes, WooCommerce integration, enhanced Stripe functionality for Stripe for Tickets Commerce, our mobile ticketing app and more.

Read more to learn which plugin is right for you.

Do I need The Events Calendar to run Event Tickets?

Nope! Event Tickets works with or without The Events Calendar. Even if you don’t have The Events Calendar, you can create RSVPs and tickets on WordPress pages and posts.

Can I email attendees using Event Tickets?

Yes. Event Tickets automatically sends an email confirmation after attendees register or RSVP for an event. If the attendee purchases a ticket, the confirmation email will also provide a ticket to scan at the door for admission.

What add-ons are available for Event Tickets, and where can I read more about them?

  • Events Calendar Pro, for adding premium calendar features like recurring events, advanced views, cool widgets, shortcodes, additional fields, and more!

We recently started using Events Tickets, along with Events Calendar Pro and needed assistance with some customization. Frank with the support team was quick to respond and get the ball rolling for taking care of our needs. Very knowledgeable and went above and beyond to make sure we were taken care of, and again quick to respond to additional questions. Highly recommend the Events Calendar Pro and Tickets plugin!

We've been building event sites for our clients for a while and before using this plugin we'd explored a lot of the 3rd party platforms which our clients didn't want because of how much the fees were and how limited the actions were. We found this and it was perfect for us. We've used it for multiple events and it has some really great features. There are still some features and things that I hope they'll add to continue improving it, but as it stands now, it's been really versatile and helpful. I also want to give a should out to their support. They're super fast and super helpful.

Very helpful assistance in resolving a small but very annoying issue for my French commercial website. After some discussion and testing, the team found a good solution to help me. Many thanks.

It works partly, but crucial features like limiting the number of tickets/RVSPs per person or requiring e-mail activation (particularly for RVSPs) are missing. There is no spam protection at all. UPDATE: The automatic e-mail dispatch (e.g. confirmation e-mails for RSVPs) does not work even though it is activated.

I had originally gave this plugin a 5 star review last year, but after I realized that some payments were made without a ticket being issues or without a notification being sent. Scary! Once I found this out, I filed a ticket, but they couldn't do anything to help, and it wasn't fixed for weeks. So, I had to audit all of our ticket sales periodically, to make sure I didn't miss any, then manually issue tickets and email folks. Took wayyyyy too much of my time. I liked the fact that it was free, and it worked great after they fixed the issue, but I would be reticent to use it again because of all of the extra work I had to do. I wish I would have paid more (in fees) for a more tried & true ticketing platform.
