Events V2 BETA released

with 2 great new features!

Today we released the 1st BETA version of the Events Add-on for GeoDirectory V2.

You can download it from your account area now.

Events V2

as for other add-ons for V2 previously released, we mainly improved the back end UI. However for Events we also decided to add 2 highly requested features.

  1. Enabling any Custom Post Type to be an Event Custom Post Type.
  2. Better linking between events and other custom post types.

All CPT can be an Event CPT

Of course you must have both the Events and Custom Post Type add-on installed, in order to create new Events CPTs.

This means that you can have events with different names, categories, custom fields, prices and now you can link events with other events. The possibilities are endless.

Better linking between Events and CPT

With V1, you could only link 1 or more events to a single place and vice versa.

Now there are no limits. The link another CPT system is now a MultiSelect custom field that is very easy to add to your add listing form.

Adding 1 event linked to multiple places

one event multiple places

Front end event listing linked to multiple places

one event multiple places front end

You can link 1 or more sub-events listings to another event listing. You can link events to a CPT listing, Venues for example.

You can create a custom post type “Artists” and link each artist listing to the events listings they will be performing at.

You can create a Event post type called organic markets and a CPT farmers and link farmers to the organic markets where they sell their fresh produce.

The events add-on V2 BETA can be downloaded by current members in the “your account” area.

Please report bugs in the dedicated forum as usual:

We believe the combination of the new Custom Post Type and Events add-ons for V2 will be game changers. What do you think about them? Let us know in the comments down below.
