    OpenTickets Community Edition

    Add to List

    Last update – Feb 17th, 2019

    GUTENBERG USERS – While it can be used with WP v5.1+, currently our plugin, like many other plugins not by us, does not work with the Gutenberg interface. There are many, many breaking changes that come with Gutenberg which conflict with existing code. Eventually, we will be able to update this plugin to work with Gutenberg; however, as of right now, before you can use this plugin, you must be using the old WYSIWYG to gain access to all functionality. For now, if you disable the Gutenberg editor, and use the old WYSIWYG (typically reverted via a separate plugin), then you can make use of all the features in this plugin.

    OpenTickets Community Edition

    OpenTickets Community Edition (“OTCE”) is a free, open source WordPress plugin that allows you to publish events and sell event tickets online. OTCE was created to allow people with WordPress websites to easily setup and sell tickets to their events.

    OTCE is an alternative to other ticketing systems, that will reduce your overhead and eliminate service fees, because it is software you run on your own existing website. It was created for venues, artists, bands, nonprofits, festivals and event organizers who sell General Admission tickets.

    OTCE runs on WordPress and requires WooCommerce to operate. WooCommerce is a free open source ecommerce platform for WordPress. You can download your own copy of that from the WooCommerce Plugin Page

    With WordPress and WooCommerce installed, you can install the OTCE plugin and start selling event tickets wihtin a few minutes. OTCE information and instructions are available on our website’s Community Edition page, or you can watch some of our videos on how to get started on our Videos page.

    The OTCE plugin empowers you with tools to:

    • Create and Sell Event Tickets
    • Display Calendar of Events
    • Publish Venues
    • Publish Events
    • Allow Customers to keep Digital and/or Print e-Tickets
    • Checkin People to your Events with a QR Reader
    • Event Ticket Reporting

    There are also various Enterprise Extensions which add even more functionality to this robust core plugin.

    OTCE is licensed under GPLv3.

    Developer Thoughts

    This software is designed with the idea that there are several components that make up an event, all of which have a specific association to the next, and all of which work together to define the finished product.

    First you need a ‘Venue’, which in general terms, is just a location that has areas which can be used to host events. A good example of a Venue would be a Hotel. Hotels, generally speaking, have multiple conference rooms available for rental. Ergo, on any given day, during any given time, any number of these several conference rooms could be occupied with a different event.

    Then you need an ‘Event Area’. In general, an event area is meant to represent a sub-location of the Venue; for instance, a conference room inside the aforementioned Hotel. Each room may have it’s own configurations of seats, it’s own stage position, it’s own entrances and exits, and it’s own pricing. There are scenarios in which this does not entirely hold up as an example, but in general, try to think of it this way.

    With this information, we can now piece together an event. An event is hosted by a ‘Venue’ and has pricing and a layout designated in the ‘Event Area’.

    Hopefully this clears up some general concepts about the idea behind the software.
