The current version shows a \"free event\" unless you enter a ticket url.

Frequently, an event is \"By donation\" and there is no url. But without a url, the system reverts to \"free\".

    Posted this over on the Wordpress forum, but maybe it belongs here? It's confusing how many places there seem to be to request support, fixes, new features, give feedback, etc.


    Any chance on some minor improvements to the cost/ticketing section?

    That is, disentangling "Free"/"Paid" events from "on-site"/"off-site" ticketing? The metaphors seemed to be erroneously mixed...

    One can have "free events" with off-site ticketing, or paid events with on-website ticketing (or no ticketing).

    Seems to me that these options should not be entangled. They should be separate sections within the cost / ticketing page.

    That is, one radio button for "free"/"paid" ("paid" as default? Or option to set a default somewhere in settings) and one radio button for "on-site ticketing" (or no ticketing) vs. "off-site ticketing."

    If "free" is selected, then the "cost" box would go away; if "paid" is selected, then the "cost" box would appear. If "Off-Site Ticketing URL" is selected, then the URL box shows up; if not, then not.

    If we could get these disentangled, that'd be nice.

    Though, even with "free" events, it might be nice to still have the option of specifying "registration required," possibly with some details, if there are limited seats, as is often the case for small trainings, dinners, etc. So, maybe 3 radio buttons Free/Paid, registration required/not required, ticketing none/on-website/off-website (or does AI1EC offer its own ticketing options; can't recall if there's a plugin for that; if not, then maybe on-site ticketing would be superfluous and you'd just have none/"off-site ticketing")?

    Yes, just having a "Donations" options to check in the "Event Costs & Tickets" area would be very useful.
