Jumping into 2012, there’s a lot we at Modern Tribe have in store on the WordPress plugin front that we’re extremely excited about. The first of those is out today: The Events Calendar / Events Calendar PRO 2.0.3, which patches a number of bugs (some critical, some minor) that were introduced in the 2.0.2 code base. We are well into 2.1 and development is going strong.
Release Notes for WordPress Events Calendar 2.0.3:
Small features, UX and Content Tweaks:
- Incorporated tribe_get_custom_field() to code base as per this forum thread
- Code updated to account for additional translation strings, as per this forum thread
- Made the $sep param of TribeEvents::maybeAddEventTitle() optional
- Organizer data can now be changed on an already-published entry in core
- tribe_get_start_date() fixed
- Future instances of custom recurrence no longer display inaccurate start/end times
- In views/single.php on lines 58, 60 & 62, changed tag to <? instead of <?php
- Required changes to WP_PLUGIN_URL (line 126) & WP_CONTENT_URL (line 930) in the.events.calendar.class.php
- Deleting a single instance of recurrence in PRO (whether from the list or from within an entry) now works correctly with appropriate prompts/dialogue boxes
- Attempting to change from a saved organizer/venue to no organizer/venue now works
- Venue no longer behaves bizarrely when no address data added
- Fixed issue where event links broke for recurring events whenever a site had permalinks set to default; also fixed general conflicts that occurred when URL rewriting was off
- Customized defaults can now be turned off after being enabled under Settings -> The Events Calendar
- Removed instances where organizer data displayed as event title for some users
- Changes made to custom fields under Settings -> The Events Calendar now take effect upon save
- Non-U.S. states and provinces now save correctly
- General fixes to improve how default venues/organizers function and are modified
- Addressed various PHP notices
As always, we look forward to hearing your feedback as to what works and what doesn’t work this new release. While we QA’d the plugin on our end, don’t hesitate to let us know if something stops working or behaves differently after updating from 2.0.2. If we broke something (which is always possible), we’ll certainly do what we can to fix it.
Next on our radar is the 2.1 release, which is a broader project that will include both new features and bug fixes. That’ll be closely followed by Eventbrite Ticketing and Community Events.
