Are you planning to create an event directory website or have you already launched one?
If your answer to this is ‘yes’,
Have you faced this?
A user visits a particular event on your event directory website. The user likes the event and wants to book a ticket. Now, all the user can see is that small box explaining how to register manually for the event.
What if you were able to charge extra fixed fees so event organizers can offer event ticket booking options – and that’s all straight on your website?
That’s not all… what if you were also able to charge a (fixed percentage) commission on event tickets booked via your events portal?
Good intentions, innovative ideas, hard work and determination surely leads to success. Approving this, is this story, where one of our clients with moderate knowledge of WordPress, developed a translated WordPress Directory website for the people.
The story is of the website – www.chineseinedmonton.com. A community information guide for the Chinese people in Edmonton. The website is running successfully and is assisting a number of Chinese immigrants in Edmonton to easily find their interests in the city.
What is chineseinedmonton.com about?
“Chinese in Edmonton” is an information guide for the Chinese immigrants and students in Edmonton, Canada. The basic purpose of the website is to provide a guide for Edmonton city in the native Chinese language.

Post Badges is yet another free plugin our team created last week for you. This little WordPress plugin helps you show a little post badge after your WordPress post title.
For example, in our Free Directory Theme Resources list, we are showing “new” tag beside some of the recent posts. Also, there are different use cases for this plugin. For example, you might want to show “popular” or “recommended” or “trending” or any other such relevant tag beside a post title which would help you get the attention of the user and as a result, increase traffic to those particular posts.
You can do this easily without writing custom code using this plugin.
Last week, our team created few free plugins and this is one them. Many users show post categories in the sidebar. Often, they are just 5-15 categories. Wouldn’t it be cool to show a nice little icon beside the category name that goes with it?
This little WordPress Category Icon plugin does exactly that. With this plugin, you will be able to show a category icon in the sidebar and before the category title in your WordPress website.
And best of all, this is an absolutely free plugin.
