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 โ€œtough luckโ€ 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?

The following add-ons are available for The Events Calendar:

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

Despite having over 18 months of warning from EDD that their plugin needed updating, they have failed to make any progress whatsoever. They use incompatible, depreciated methods which means tickets sold do not have the attendees details saved, just the purchaser. If I could give this negative stars, I would.

This works great for my little group in scheduling events and maintaining rsvp's! The support is also very helpful and answered my question within 24 hours.

This was, once, many moons ago, really good. But alas no more. Each update continually conflicts with something. Major aesthetic and functional changes are implemented with no option to not have. Basics like working with WooCommerce just suddenly disappear. I've used this product for years but having lost a whole day trying to undo the carnage caused by the latest appalling update (6+) I've sadly concluded my time would be better spent finding a new ticketing solution

I have run into very few issues using Event Tickets but when I have, the support I've received has been quick and very helpful.

Good. But it would be better if it had more customization options.
