Looking to Add members I currently use what is closest to that platform? Social Media wise and Membership wise? I would like it 100% seamless to with EE and wordpress.
Like to see who is attending events and have conversations as well!
Thank you

Sorry, I don’t understand your question. Can you explain a little more about what are you wanting to do ?

I have a Camera Club and we use to host our events currently. I paid for this plugin and am looking to get rid of meetup 100%. Problem is I have a database of members that communicate on there – and your platform has a member section but it does not really have features. Plus there is no “facebook” element to your plugin – I was wondering if there were workarounds for that or you are developing stuff to integrate? I have hear dof S2 and Buddy something plugins but not sure if either work with your platform or if there is a better way to integrate a complete event & Social media experience
I really want this to work so i can do the switch!
Thank you in advance Nick

I guess our question is what are you trying to do with your “members”?

Users don’t need to be members to register for an event. Anyone can register for an event. So there isn’t a specific need to import your users into your WordPress site necessarily.

However, if you’re giving your “members” specific member-only discounts, then you can do that with the WP User Integration add-on which uses regular WordPress users. This, then, becomes a WordPress issue, not specifically an Event Espresso issue as Event Espresso only looks at whether the attendee is a registered user on the WordPress site. So, if that’s what you were looking for, you’d need to find a plugin that allowed you to import users from your database into WordPress.

Same thing with Facebook. Whether Event Espresso “integrates” with Facebook — at least how you’re describing it — or not is irrelevant. Event Espresso doesn’t care how the users are created. There are Facebook plugins that allow users to sign onto your site using their Facebook account. If you’re allowing users to create accounts and/or sign in with Facebook — assuming that WordPress user accounts are created when they register, then they will be “members” as far as Event Espresso is concerned.

But again, none of this is required for people to register for events. They can register for events right now. So, it really depends on what you’re trying to do and whether people are going to need to log into your site to register for events or not.
