Event Website – Event Registration and User Dashboards

We’re currently in development on a website for that needs to accomplish 1 primary thing: Event Registration. However, our site needs to have the ability to showcase the various teachers AND users “Event History” and “profiles”.

Excusing terminology- we need “Custom” dashboards/profiles for every user/role that displays: – Classes they’ve attended – Reviews given by other users/roles

A BLOWN out example of BOTH needs would be:

I’ve already purchased EE and am quite deep into the development stage. I was under the impression that I could accomplish everything using the EE Add-Ons, but I’m beginning to realize that I might have been mistaken.

Should I have started the project on a “social foundation” (using BuddyPress), and then focused on the Event Registration aspect (using EE or Events-Manager)??

I would love to keep everything with EE, but I need to find some insight on the “dashboards” quickly.

Any help would be appreciated.

I think your best bet might be to use BuddyPress or WP Symposium and Event Espresso. However, we don’t have a complete integration with Buddypress, because it has never been stable (or well documented) enough to support.

Sorry for the delayed response, life got in the way.

Seth, do you think there’s any possibility for additional “community” development for EE?

It seems obvious to me now that having the ability for Host bios and interaction between event organizers & attenders (event reviews, “host”reviews, social-profiles, etc..) would be a HUGE selling point for the EE plugin.

We are happy to include any community provided code, as long as it is done well and abides by the WordPress coding standards.

Sorry, I wasn’t referring to “community” as in the developer-sense.

I was referring to it in the context of a “community” element WITHIN Espresso- giving the ability for Event-Host bios and interaction between event organizers & attenders (event reviews, “host”reviews, social-profiles, etc..)
