Adding Events to your BuddyPress site with Events Manager

Adding Events to your BuddyPress site with Events Manager

Version Installed: Events Manager V, Events Manager Email User V 1.2.3

Events Manager is a rich featured Events plugin for WordPress/BuddyPress. Truth be told it is probably overkill for many BuddyPress sites however it does offer good integration with BuddyPress and it’s diverse range of options mean that it should be the only Events Manager you will ever need.

Installing Events Manager

Events Manager is installed by navigating to Dashboard>>Plugins>>Add New and searching for Events Manager (By Marcus and Nutsmuggler) then click on “Install” and then “Activate”.

On Installation Events Manager creates the following new pages for your site; It creates the parent page of Events and the child pages of Categories, Locations, My Bookings and Tags. You can add these pages to your sites main menu by accessing Dashboard>>Appearance>>Menus. Once some events have been created, the Events page will show a summary of forthcoming events, Locations will display events by location, Categories will display events by Category, Tags will do the same for Tags and My Bookings will display any forthcoming events booked by the site member.

Events Manager also installs a useful Calendar widget which displays the current months calendar and identifies forthcoming events, providing a clickable link to them. Also included is an Event Locations widget which shows a list of events by location.

For my installations I also install the plugin Events Manager Email User which allows Events Coordinators to email any members who have registered to attend an event.

Configuring Events Manager

Events Manager comes with a comprehensive range of configuration options, too many to cover in detail here. You can access these by going to Dashboard>>Events>>Settings. Within here there are tabs covering General Settings, Pages, User Capabilities, Formatting, Bookings and Emails.

The important sections here are the General settings section, where you configure which aspects of Events Manager you are going to enable, and User Capabilities, where you configure who has the ability to create and edit events by user Role. So you may want to give all Contributor level members the ability to create and edit their own events and recurring events. Events Manager has many other options, it’s good to familiarise yourself with these but at the moment simply enabling events for your user types is sufficient to allow the events system to become operational.

Once you have configured who can create events they will also have the ability to + New an Event and in their BuddyPress Toolbar they get an additional “My Events” option.

Using Events Manager

Once installed, Events Manager adds an Events section to the BuddyPress Toolbar, within it there are the following options: My Profile, My Bookings, Events I’m attending and My Events Bookings. For those that have been enabled the correct event creation rights there are also Add New (+ New) options of Events, Locations and Recurring Events.

Clicking on + New>> Event allows you to set up an event, which will have a Title, Description, Date and Time and a Location. Once these have been configured then the event will be displayed in the various forthcoming event views and site members will be able to book to attend them.


Events Manager is a powerful plugin that supports a wide range of Event scenarios, it is full featured and well integrated into BuddyPress. You can use this to ad Events to your BuddyPress Social Network.


I've been setting up and managing BuddyPress social networks for a few years. I moved from Ning and other platforms and have come to BuddyPress looking to make sites with similar features to them.


Plugin Review – BuddyPress Docs

BuddyPress Docs adds collaborative documents to BuddyPress. This means that a person can create a document that can be edited by multiple people.

Events buddypress

Buddypress Setup

Events Manager allows BuddyPress users to manage their events from the front-end your website. Aside from this, your users also can create group events and manage these together.

When both plugins are installed, users will see a new Events menu automatically added to their BuddyPress profile menus. What options they see depends on the permissions they have assigned to their user role from Events > Settings > User Capabilities in the admin area.

User Event Management

My Profile

Available to all users, and is the only public page accessible by other members/guests. Shows a list of events the user is hosting, as well as events they may be attending.

Events I’m Attending

This is the same interface as non-buddypress installations use for logged in users e.g. httpx://yoursite.com/events-page/my-bookings/

My Events (Add/Edit Events)

This is the equivalent to the Add/Edit Events interface in the admin area. You can add a new event by clicking the ‘add new’ link next to the page title. Note that admins will only see events they own, and not all user events like in the admin area.

When an event is published, the event will also appear on the main Events Page (unless you are filtering events).

My Locations

This is equivalent to the Add/Edit Locations interface in the admin area. Note that admins will only see their locations and cannot view other user locations in this interface, unlike in the admin area.

My Event Bookings

This is equivalent to the Add/Edit Locations interface in the admin area. Note that admins will only see their locations and cannot view other user locations in this interface, unlike in the admin area.

Group Events

Group admins can attach events to their group, allowing other group admins to also manage the event and bookings (if allowed). Creating a group event is just like creating a normal event, except that you will have the option of choosing a group to assign the event to.

Once you attach an event to a group, it cannot be unattached. Other group admins will also see the event in their event management panels.

Activity Stream and Notifications

When a user books a place at an event, cancels it, or creates an event, the activity stream is updated. When someone books or cancels a booking for your event, you will also have a notification within the standard buddypress notifications area.

Modifying Page Layouts

All Buddypress page layouts can be modified using template files, which means you can modify the look from your theme folder and not directly modify the plugin. These folders/files are used by EM in BuddyPress:

  • templates/buddypress/ – all these files represent pages in buddypress
  • templates/templates/my-bookings.php – used in the “Events I’m Attending” screens
  • templates/forms/event-editor.php – the add/edit event screen
  • templates/forms/location-editor.php – the add/edit locations screen
