Event Plugin Questions
Thanks for checking out our plugins – this sounds like a really neat way to use them!
Using our free plugin The Events Calendar, users can create events on the backend of the site, just like you would for other post types. We also have an add-on called Community Events which lets users create and manage events from the front end of the site, without needing admin access at all.
Event Aggregator is a service that allows you to perform manual or scheduled imports from sites like Facebook, Meetup, Google calendars, and others, and it actually requires The Events Calendar to run. So, you would still have the option to create events from the backend.
There is not currently a widget that would automatically pull GPS info from a page and display events for that area, but as an alternative, you could use the [tribe_events] shortcode that comes with Events Calendar Pro. Although there is not currently a “location” parameter for this shortcode, you could use categories for different locations and display them with [tribe_events category=“denver”].
We do offer full refunds within 30 days of purchase, so if you’d like to test anything out, feel free to do so! Please let me know if you have any other questions.
