New feature: Plan an event using your wiki

19 Jun

Have you ever wanted to plan an event, coordinate RSVPs, and even sell tickets right from your wiki?

Lots of people already use their PBwikis to plan events (e.g., here and here).

Now, we’ve added a free feature to make event-planning easier. We partnered with Eventbrite, the leading online event registration service, so you can sell event tickets and collect registration information online. You can publish, promote, manage, and sell out your events with Eventbrite and PBwiki.

Watch the video below to see how easy it is to insert the Event Promoter plugin on your wiki.

(What the video says: To use the new feature, click “Edit Page”, Insert Plugin, and then hover over “Productivity” to “Plan an Event.”)

The big news: You can plan an event, coordinate RSVPs, and even sell tickets right from your wiki using the Eventbrite plugin — free.

    On the Eventbrite site, it says “sign up for your free trial”, which tells me it’s a paid service. I was hoping this was a simple, free service that non-profits could use to collect registration info for free events. [sigh]

    Sorry to be a whiner! :-/

    Can the events be something like access to a specific online lesson?

    Thank you Stew for pointing out that only the FIRST event is free, THEREAFTER there is a FEE!!!!

    I would NOT have found the information about the fees had you not posted your comment.

    THANK YOU STEW.

    Please tell us whether the event planner and the ticket collection is a free service or not. I have a conference to plan and this would help.

    Hi All,

    We do offer our first event with no fees. Thereafter, we charge a fee per registration (2.5% with a minimum of $.99 and a maximum of $9.95). You can see the fee schedule here:

    Please do post if you have any further questions!

    Is there still a fee for free events? We are a non profit and do not charge for our conferences. I would love to continue using this service. It seems fabulous.

    No fee for free events. The fee is a % of the ticket price. No price, no fee.

    You really make it seem so easy with your
    presentation but I find this topic to be actually something that I
    think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me.
    I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the
    hang of it!
