One of the perks of working for WP Daily is that we get invited to check out new stuff all of the time. It’s really exciting and I love getting these sorts of emails. We received such an email the other day from Shane Pearlman, one of the main men over at Modern Tribe.
(On a side note, I was able to meet Reid Peifer one of the other main men from Modern Tribe at WordCamp Atlanta, he’s a cool dude. You should definitely check them out.)
But back to the email we received from Shane. It was a preview of the upcoming release of their Events Calendar plugin for WordPress, the 3.0 release. Events Calendar 3.0 has been rebuilt, plus it’s been updated with some new views and new features.
The quick 5 minute video gives a very helpful overview of the new features and the new views. It looks robust and well thought through.
One nice feature that will be included in the upcoming release is the events bar. In this bar you can search by date, text or location. This can help tremendously on calendars that are loaded with events.
As Rob, the community gatekeeper for Modern Tribe, explains in the video the events bar is there to help, you can use all three search items, just one of them, or none of them. It’s a flexible tool meant to help not intrude.
Events Calendar 3.0 looks to be a solid release from a solid organization. Those of you out there who have used Events Calendar in previous releases, what has your experience been? Are you excited for the 3.0 release?
