EventPrime is an easy to use, beginner-friendly WordPress Events Calendar plugin. Using the EventPrime events plugin, you can now create events with a single click. Just click on a date from the Events Calendar ???? in the WordPress backend and begin creating an event starting from that date. Create free as well as paid Events by enabling Bookings ???? from EventPrime’s Event Settings. Booking payments via PayPal, frontend event submission, and email customizations are some of the features also supported for free in our WordPress Events Calendar plugin.

The EventPrime events plugin also allows you to create and assign Event Types, Performer(s), and Event Site(s) to your Events.

EventPrime is the newest WordPress events plugin built by the RegistrationMagic plugin team and in active development since past 12 months. EventPrime provides WordPress users the same level of control over event management that RegistrationMagic provides over user registrations. We are eager to get as much feedback from you as possible on our new event booking plugin.

EventPrime Frontend

The Event Calendar

On the Front-end, the EventPrime events plugin sports a beautiful yet convenient event calendar layout. The events can be displayed monthly, weekly, daily, event list, or as event cards. Hovering over any event in the calendar will display the event card in a pop-up. Viewers can see all information in brief about an event on this event card. Clicking on the event card will lead to the individual page for that event. Users can register as attendees for an event if event registration is enabled for it.

Directory Pages

In addition to the comprehensive Events Calendar view, the EventPrime events plugin offers complete directories for entities associated with events. The directory pages are created automatically on your site along with the installation and activation of our WordPress events plugin. These pages contain shortcodes for their respective directories. So you can use the shortcodes to add them onto any other pages you’d like. The directory pages are:

  • Event Types Directory
  • Event Sites Directory
  • Performers Directory

We are planning to add customizable parameters to these directory shortcodes in the future. So you can setup these directory lists in more than one ways.

Submit Event

From the Submit Event frontend page, any user can submit his/her own event. The admin can then review, edit and publish that event on the Event Calendar. The Submit Event page has the following options:

  • User submitting an event can submit its name, start date, end date, description, event type, venue, and performers.
  • Enable bookings, set booking start and end date, and also set the booking price.
  • Upon submitting the form, user will see a confirmation message that is customizable from the Global Settings.
  • Upon submitting event, EventPrime will send an email to site admin that a new event has been submitted with the event’s details.

Single Entities

The EventPrime events plugin also allows you to create individual entity pages using shortcodes with ID parameter. Shortcodes are availabe for the following pages:

  • Single Event
  • Single Event Type
  • Single Event Site & Location
  • Single Performer
  • Submit Event

User Account Area

The Directory and Single entity pages are for displaying Events and related entities. For a user to see his/her own activity with events, our event booking plugin offers a full-fledged User Account Area on the front-end. With this EventPrime page, users can login and manage their event booking. Users can also cancel their event booking and find directions to Event Sites where Events are booked.


The EventPrime events plugin offers you 4 highly useful widgets to setup anywhere on your site. These are:

  • Countdown Event Widget- This is a reverse countdown to upcoming events which you can select from the Widget settings. The upcoming events countdown displays the Days, Hours, Minutes and Seconds left till the event goes live.
  • Slider Event Widget – This widget is a slideshow of the Featured Images from various Events on your site. Clicking on a Feature Image from the slideshow will lead to that Event’s individual page.
  • Calendar Event Widget – A smaller view of the Events Calendar that lists upcoming events underneath it.
  • Event Site Map – This widget contains Google Map with markers of all Event Sites & Locations.

3 more widgets can be added to our WordPress Events Calendar plugin using the “Event List Widgets” extensions.

What’s Next?

Our WordPress events plugin is in active development with a lot of features planned ahead. Here’s a quick glimpse of what we have in queue for the future…

  • Multiple Payment Gateways – It is always important for an event organiser to accept event booking payments with their choice of payment gateway. EventPrime event booking plugin is going to make it easier for event organiser by adding more payment gateways. In addition to the existing payment gateway support with PayPal.
  • Import/Export Events – No event organiser or event planner tool can work standalone. That is why EventPrime team is going to add Import/Export events feature to work with other popular event management tools.
  • More Event List Widgets – We plan to add more widgets to our event list plugin. Widgets such as Featured Events, Recommended Events, Most Popular Events etc. Our aim with these widgets is to propel EventPrime to become the best event list plugin for WordPress.
  • Save Events – Event attendees find it easier when they are able to save preferred events to their user accounts for future reference. The EventPrime event list plugin will soon give this power to such event attendees.
