Along with the ability to add events from the WordPress dashboard, they can also be added by visitors browsing the website. Don’t worry, you can moderate the submissions.
Most of the content you see on the Nightlife homepage are actually widgets. Moving them around is as simple as drag n’ drop.
Set the start/end date and the occurrence and the theme will automatically generate all events in between. Recurring events are available to both the admin and visitors.
Each field you see inside the submission form can be modified inside the theme’s extensive back-end section. There are several field types provided.
Visitors unwilling to register can just login with Facebook. They can also connect their Nightlife accounts with a Facebook page and stream events directly from Facebook.
Using WPML you can setup a multilingual city directory where visitors can change the default language per their requirements.
Nightlife makes it easy to import events from another site using .csv files. Along with bulk importing, exporting and even updating are available as well.
No worries, we didn’t forget about the blog. Starting a blog with this advanced theme is as easy as creating a new category and adding some posts to it, no further tweaking necessary.
The included coupon module will allow you to offer discounts for created price packages. This will for sure come in handy early in the sites’s life-cycle.
Using just the back-end you can create your own unique register page. Add just the fields you want the visitors to fill; no unnecessary fluff.
Price package power
The primary way to make money with this events directory theme is to charge for content/listing submissions. Each created submission form supports price packages that allow you to define aspects such as duration or price. Subscription-type price packages are also available.
Allowing you to earn even more money are featured listings. By opting to feature their listings (make them display at the top) visitors can be charged more for their submissions.
The price packages you create can be charged on a rolling basis. Works only with PayPal.
Enter a shortcode into any page or post and generate a map containing all your events.
Nightlife isn’t limited to a preset selection of currencies. Add your own currency code, symbol and position.
Create complex multi-level menu items. Hover over the “Shop” item for a demonstration.
Choose what happens with listings once they are submitted. Are they held for moderation or published?
Populate the site with events and then let visitors claim them as theirs.
Visitors can leave star ratings and reviews on your event detail pages.
Show related places and events on detail pages. Select the number shown in the back-end.
Edit and manage all emails sent by the theme. Use shortcodes to display dynamic data.
Use pre-existing shortcodes to style our text and add boxes, callouts and more.
Use the transaction reports section to view purchased price packages and manage your income.
The ability to create your own post type extends the functionality well beyond a “simple” events directory. For instance, create a post type called “Locations” and showcase places worth seeing in your city. Cool thing about this feature is that you also create the category taxonomy. So, along with showcasing locations you can also divide them into categories such as restaurants, parks and more.
Once you’re done creating the post type, start working on the submission fields. Just as you allowed visitors to submit events, you can also allow them to submit your locations (or whatever post type you chose to create).
Pressing just one button inside the theme back-end you can make your newly installed theme look like our demo site.
The days of struggling with theme files are over. This feature will allow you to update the theme right from the WordPress dashboard, much like you would update a plugin (or WordPress itself).
A multi-page guide containing text, images and video makes getting started with this advanced theme a whole lot easier.
Display unique content with widgets such as: Facebook Fans, Twitter Feed, Testimonials, Browse by Categories, Contact Us, Recent Review, Social Media and more.
Yes, of course. The logo and favicon can be changed from the theme’s back-end section.
No, it’s not. It’s only available as a WordPress theme.
Yes, it is. Bulk upload, export and update are available.
Yes, it does. All Templatic themes work great on MultiSite, including Nightlife.
Nightlife will always be compatible with the latest version of WordPress. So, when in doubt – update.
Nightlife (more specifically, Tevolution) comes with two payment options included: PayPal and PreBank Transfer. Numerous other payment gateways are available as optional (paid) extras. For a full list click here.
Yes, of course. You’re allowed to make unlimited changes to the theme, design and functionality included. We even encourage this by including the best customized sites in our Showcase.
No, the theme is only provided in English. However, it does come with a language file which will allow you to translate it to your own language.
No, Nightlife is a one-city theme. However, you can create multiple instances/sites using Nightlife. Either by installing WordPress multiple times or by enabling MultiSite. If that won’t work for you try checking out GeoPlaces. GeoPlaces is currently the only Templatic theme with multi-city features built-in.
Even though both themes are event directories and share roughly the same features, the underlining code is very different. Events v2 is a standalone theme while Nightlife depends on the Supreme parent theme and Tevolution to work. In general, Nightlife is more powerful (comes with more features) but Events v2 might be easier to setup.
Open the demo site to see Nightlife in action.
If you’re looking for an events directory theme, it doesn’t get any better than Nightlife. The ability for visitors to submit events is awesome in itself, the fact you can customize the form and charge for submission makes it just so much better. The awesome looks and fully responsive design will make sure visitors stay long enough to actually submit something.
