Release: WooTickets 1.0.1

We’ve just released an update to our WooTickets add-on, and users should expect to begin seeing update prompts for the 1.0.1 release over the next 24 hours. This release is mostly bug fixes, with a couple minor features and some new translation files thrown in too. Our goal here was to both ensure things play smoothly with yesterday’s WooCommerce 2.0 release, and to address a handful of bugs that users had noted as critical pain points. Specifically:

Small features, UX and Content Tweaks: 

  • Added code to allow for translation of PDF tickets when The Events Calendar 3.0 is released.
  • Various minor UX tweaks to smooth integration with WooCommerce 2.0.
  • Incorporated new Norwegian translation files, courtesy of Eyolf Steffensen.
  • Incorporated new Italian translation files, courtesy of Andrea Palermo.
  • Incorporated new German translation files, courtesy of Peter Schönmann.
  • Incorporated new Czech translation files, courtesy of Martin Kristan.
  • Incorporated new Brazilian Portuguese translation files, courtesy of Diego Meneghetti.
  • Incorporated new Greek translation files, courtesy of Panos Efstratiou.
  • Incorporated new French translation files, courtesy of Fabien Decroux.

Bug Fixes:

  • Removed a fatal error that showed on view.php for All Day events that occurred without an end date for ticket sales.
  • Fixed an issue where tickets would not show on the frontend for certain users once upgrading to WordPress 3.5.
  • WooTickets now registers orders that have been manually added by a site admin.
  • PDFs generated on orders of >10 tickets now include correct number of pages.
  • Removed a repeating message that duplicated every time you updated an existing ticket.
  • If you’re running WooTickets alongside our Eventbrite Tickets add-on, having the two active no longer kills the frontend ticket form.
  • Pressing the checkout button two or more times in rapid succession will no longer create duplicate orders.
  • Preemptively addressed a jQuery issue impacting the plugin’s interaction with our forthcoming release The Events Calendar 3.0.

Breaking from the past tradition, we did not release an update to The Events Calendar or Events Calendar PRO alongside this build — as a result you should have no problem running it on Events 2.0.11.

We’ll be following this up with a more feature-centric WooTickets release in the coming weeks, too. No promises as to a specific timetable…but we’ve gotten some great ideas in our WooTickets feature request thread, and are working now to implement those in a way that makes sense and meets everyone’s needs. Stay tuned on that end.

In the meantime, please let us know if you encounter any problems with the latest version. As always, thank you for your support and for using The Events Calendar.
