September’s maintenance release cycle is in full swing…now that we’ve kicked Events 2.0.9 out the door, each of the add-ons is following suit. Next up comes Community Events (“for all your frontend event submission needs)”. This 1.0.3 release is fairly heavy on bug fixes and lighter on the feature/content tweak side. If you’ve reported a Community bug over the past 2 months there’s a very good chance the fix is included in the list below. Similarly, if you’re looking to run Community in another language, this release also includes no fewer than 5 new or updated translations.
Release Notes for WordPress Community Events 1.0.3:
Small features, UX and Content Tweaks:
- Clarified messaging regarding pre-populated “Free” text on cost field.
- Disabled comments from the frontend submission form.
- Added a filter — ‘tribe_community_events_event_categories’ — to allow users to filter the category list that appears on the frontend submission form.
- Added a new hook — $args = apply_filters( ‘tribe_community_events_my_events_query’, $args ); — at a user’s request. This alteration allows you to tap into the WotUser object and pull out a list of events the user has access to and add them into this query.

If you find a bug listed above persists — even after updating The Events Calendar to 2.0.9 and Community Events to 1.0.3 — tell us at the forums and we’ll help you out best we can. Similarly, if you’re interested in providing a translation file for a language we don’t have yet, let us know…we’d be happy to include yours in next month’s maintenance release and will comp you a free license for your efforts.
