Hey there! Virtual Events 1.0.2 is out and it features the addition of an embedded password for all Zoom meetings, as well as the option of filters that can enhance the password functionality for virtual events.
This is a minor release that should be smooth sailing when updating. That said, it’s always a good idea to backup your site and test changes in a development environment before installing this on your live site, as you would with any other WordPress update.
Here are the detailed changes included in the release:
- Feature – We updated the Zoom meeting start and end times when the event start and end times are changed, without having to regenerate a new Zoom meeting link.
- Feature – We added embedded passwords to the Zoom meetings links, visible on the backend browser hover and frontend hover for logged-in users.
- Feature – We added the tribe_events_virtual_meetings_zoom_meeting_password filter to control whether Zoom Meetings should be protected by a password or not.
- Feature – We added the tribe_events_virtual_meetings_zoom_password_requirements filter to control the requirements of the password generated for Zoom Meetings.
- Feature – We added the tribe_events_virtual_meetings_zoom_meeting_include_password filter to control whether Zoom Meetings URLs should include the password or not. By default the password will not show to visitors that are not logged in.
- Fix – We ensure that we correctly check for Zoom API credentials to enable and disable the “Connect” button.
- Fix – We ensure that we always check that an event is virtual before outputting the virtual event label.
- Fix – We ensure that the password is now included in RSVP & ticket email links.
- Fix – We added back the option to include a virtual event link in ticket emails.
- Tweak – We removed an unused duplicate template file.
- Language – 0 new strings added, 9 updated, 0 fuzzied, and 0 obsoleted
