This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

Event Organiser NGO


This plugin creates settings in back-office -> settings -> read in sites so they can share their events with the network-(portal-)site. It also creates settings to show custom post type concert and custom post type production provided by the plugins ngo-concert and ngo-production to show those custom post types in the sites flow.
If they use the setting above to allow sharing events with the portal site, then the site-editor while creating an event using event-organiser can tick a check-box to share their event with the portal-site to show it in a mutual calendar to make it easy for visitors to see what is happening in your region right now. It also provides two calendar widgets for the sites, to show one week of events, and two weeks of events.

In the portal-site (network-site) it will create a calendar widget to show one week of both portal-site and shared site events. It also has a filter for the event-organiser plugin shortcode [eo_fullcalendar] to show both the portal-site events, and the shared site events. It also provide a setting in back-office -> settings -> read to show the events created by the event-organiser plugin in the portal-site’s flow.

This section describes how to install the plugin and get it working.

  1. Upload the plugin files to the /wp-content/plugins/plugin-name directory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress
  3. You need to enable this plugin on the site via Settings -> Read -> “Show events in portal calendar”
  4. When the plugin is enabled you can tick the box in front of “Show events in portal calendar” that shows up in the upper right corner when creating or editing an event via Event Organiser.


How to activate this plugin?

This plugin is an add-on plugin to event-organiser, so you need to install that plugin first, and then activate it. After that, install this plugin and activate it both on the portal-site, and the sites from where you want to be able to share events.

The site events does not show up in the portal calendar

Make sure your site owner has ticked the setting in back-office -> settings -> read to allow editors to share events with the portal.
Also make sure they have ticked the check box “Show event in portal calendar” when creating the event.
If it still does not work, deactivate the plugin and activate it again.
If the plugin event-organiser-ngo get’s activated before the plugin event-organiser has ever been activated on the site, then the events will not show up in the portal calendar. This plugin is an add-on to the event-organiser plugin and can not work without it.

Newly created site’s site events does not show up in the portal calendar

Please do not network activate this plugin, or use the otherwise excellent plugin Multisite plugin manager to activate this plugin on newly created sites. It seems as if this plugin gets activated before or to soon after the plugin Event-organiser gets activated. Then the settings does not get right when this plugin activates. It’s better to set Event-organiser as network-activated and activate this plugin manually after site creation.
If above problem apears, just deactivate Event-organiser-ngo and activate it again. It should fix this issue.

  • Latest stable release
    Changed base language from Swedish to English. This is to make it easier for translators. Swedish translation is included.


Bugfix. Network activate would have locked you out from admin


Bug fix. I don’t know why pluggable.php don’t get included by WordPress default.
current_user_can is being called by the plugin and for some reason although capabilities.php has been loaded (which contains the current_user_can function) that function calls wp_get_current_user which is defined in pluggable.php but hasn’t been loaded when the call is made.


Cleaned up some menu items. This code was in ngo-menu-deactivate before, but it makes more sence to have it here.
Also changed license from GPLv2+ to GPLv3


Changed donation link (important stuff 😉 )


Fixed issues with generic function names.


Initital release on WordPress
