Nightlife and Tevolution are now available!

Posted on

IMPORTANT UPDATE: Nightlife has been retired and is no longer available for purchase. Instead, check out the Eventum theme.

Two weeks ago we released something really important to all of us at Templatic – Tevolution. After two (more) weeks of rigorous testing we believe the plugin and Nightlife are ready for the spotlight!

If this is your first time hearing about Nightlife and Tevolution we recommend you check out the following:

A number of improvements have been made since the initial release, here’s some of them:

  • Event detail page now displays how many members are coming to the event
  • Author pages display information about the active subscription package
  • Improved transaction details section – it shows more information now
  • Set default listing status for both free and paid events (submitted using the Submit Event form)
  • Changed Tevolution Dashboard to look more like the upcoming WordPress 3.5
  • Improved slider widget + slider search. You can now search locations without the need to input a keyword (event name)

Extensions / Add-ons

Although feature packed, not everything will be included inside the main plugin. Payment gateways such as 2CO, Authorize.net or Google Checkout are available as paid extensions (PayPal is integrated with the system). These add-ons are $39 each. Club members have access to all add-ons!

Support and updates

Like most other plugins, Tevolution supports automatic updates. When an update becomes available WordPress will display a notification. You can then update the plugin from the WordPress dashboard. Nightlife on the other hand still has to be updated the old fashioned way – by uploading the latest version to your server. The only difference is, this time a notification will be displayed in WordPress alerting you that a new version of the theme is available.

Since this is a new (extremely complex) product some hiccups are possible. If you notice any issues please post them in our forums. All problems will be taken care of within 48 hours. Most of the team is committed solely to this so expect fast replies and fast fixes.

Purchasing Nightlife

Since Nightlife depends on Tevolution they come bundled together. Purchasing the theme gets you both the theme and the plugin. The plugin will not be sold separately, at least not at this point. Even though Nightlife cannot be used without Tevolution, the plugin itself is not limited to Nightlife, you’re free to use it with other themes (but don’t expect everything to look as nice). You are also free to use Tevolution with non-Templatic themes, just keep in mind that support will not be provided for those themes

Limited Time Offer
Starting now and ending on November 14th, 2012 – Nightlife standard license can be purchased for $89 $59. The developer license will set you back $189 $119. The discount is applied automatically at checkout; there are no coupon codes, just checkout like you normally would.

Hopefully we managed to explain what Tevolution is all about. If something is still unclear don’t hesitate to contact us. As always, we hope you’ll leave a comment below and tell us what you think about this release.

    Curious if the Stripe payment gateway will be available for this.
    A lot of developers are switching to Stripe and would love to be able to use it on my Templatic theme powered sites.

    1. R.Bhavesh says:

      In fact, we have one in the works (ready for beta testing). We are looking for someone who can help us actually test this with few actual transactions.

      1. Dustin says:

        Sent my initial review today. Sorry for the delay.
        Thanks!

  2. David says:

    I have read thru all the features . Is there a possibility of a Ticketing feature? Like number of tickets availble for an event , set wehn registration for event closes, manage attenddes like send a reminder email to attendees of an event

    1. Vedran says:

      Hey David
      No, there is no ticketing feature – users can only provide a link (and some info) about a place where tickets can be purchased.

  3. I love this theme and I’m willing to buy.

    This theme will sell more if there is a brilliant monetizing feature just like the ticketing. People should be able to buy tickets to these event.

    An event owner will want to list his event with me cos I have the ability to promote it by selling tickets, then we’ll do revenue sharing on ticket sales.

    This is a better feature than asking people to pay to list events. I won’t mind if the price goes up, this feature is necessary.

    1. Vedran says:

      Yes, a ticketing system would enable users to do a lot more with Nightlife. However, it would be extremely hard to develop – and most people would not use it. However, I did pitch an idea for WooCommerce compatibility. Basically, users interested in selling tickets would contact you (admin) and you would then create the product. A ticket could be a simple product that users can download and print. The system will never be able to rival real ticketing systems like ticketmaster but should work for smaller venues. What do you think, would that work?

      1. I don’t think its going to be a complex task like you thought, woo commerce compatibility will work fine If Integrated properly. Another Plugin is – //wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wpeventticketing/screenshots/

        When I saw this template, what came to my mind was Eventbrite – //www.eventbrite.com/home/ It looks so close to Nightlife, except for the ticketing part.

        I think the ticketing system is all about payment integration, nothing too special. User gets an email when they purchase the ticket which they can just print.

        Thanks Vedran

      2. David says:

        may be that is a better solution to it

    I’m very interested in buying Tevolution as a standalone plugin to use it with my own themes.

    However, I’ve setup a test site on your server and some things are not working well:
    – cannot activate other theme than Nightlife (Fatal error: Cannot redeclare get_ssl_normal_url() in /home/…/public_html/wp-content/themes/Events/library/functions/custom_functions.php on line 826)
    – I was able to create custom posts, taxonomies and custom fields but the submission form page it seems to not working because no form is displayed.

    1. Vedran says:

      Hi

      At the moment Tevolution will work well only with Nightlife. It’s also possible to use it with simper themes like TechNews or Specialist, even Twenty Eleven – but not advanced app themes. This because advanced app themes such as GeoPlaces or Events have the same functions as Tevolution. Those conflicts will cause problems with the plugin.

  5. Dustin says:

    I agree. Ticketing feature would be great and it’s a staple of any true event website.
    +1 for adding that.

    1. Vedran says:

      Bhavesh already started asking developers about this, we’ll try to come up with something :)

  6. Carl says:

    Hi
    Can i create a site like geoplaces with this theme ?. It has de multicity option ?

    1. Vedran says:

      Hi Carl
      Sorry, I’m afraid it doesn’t have a multi-city option. You can however showcase multiple locations using the built-in map page template.

  7. shashank says:

    Just wanted to confirm buying nightlife theme, tevolution plugin will be bundled together right?
    Would be great if you let me know regarding the same.

    1. Vedran says:

      Hi
      Yes, Tevolution will be bundled with Nightlife. You get the theme + plugin for $59.

      1. shashank says:

        Hi Vedran,
        I missed out the dates and I am still interested to buy the same.
        Can we have a quick call or online chat support.
        I am seriously interested & if possible fwd me your contact details on my email for me to connect.
        thanks!

        1. Vedran says:

          Hi
          We don’t use phones but you can contact me anytime at vedran[at]templatic.com. Expect a reply within a few hours (unless I’m sleeping). Cheers

  8. James says:

    Hi, Is Tevolution plugin available as a stand-alone product?
    Or is it only available when buying Nightlife theme?

    1. Vedran says:

      At the moment it is only available as part of Nightlife. If you don’t like Nightlife, you can use Tevolution with other themes (but without support)

  9. mafteiga says:

    When you’ll release the standalone version of the plugin please take into consideration to include also the geo map widget feature for homepage and category taxonomies !

    It is possible for a custom post type to create a second taxonomy ? So, for a custom post type “Places” to have “Places Categories” (eg. Hotels, Restaurants, Bar) and also the “Locations Taxonomies” (eg. New York, Los Angeles) because I think that this is a better solution than multi-city option in terms of seo at least !

    Thanks !

    1. Dustin says:

      @mafteiga, you can always use the WordPress register_taxonomy function with the post types that Tevolution adds:
      //codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/register_taxonomy

      Just use whatever you set the “post type slug” setting to for the register_taxonomy setting where you need to define the post type to add it to.

  10. Why the Demo theme has no “Sign Up” link?

    1. Vedran says:

      Signing up is necessary to post an event. If we were to enable signup people could post events on the demo site and…I can imagine how would that turn out :)

  11. Johnny says:

    Hello how do you change the map to not show new york? I would like to change to another state. New York is the default map view on submit event. Thx.

    1. Vedran says:

      Hey Johnny. The location can be changed, but only by editing a theme file. Submit a topic inside our forums to get help, we’ll tell you exactly what (and how) to change.

  12. kumar says:

    Hey there Vedran,

    Can a member post multiple events and pay everything together at checkout or do they have to enter & pay each submission, one after another?

    Some of my clients cannot use paypal or credit card for payment due to company policies. In such cases, how can one bypass your payment system? I wish to invoice the client outside of this theme system – that is raise an invoice & after payment allows them to post a set number/unlimited of times in a year.

    Looking forward to hearing from you

    Thanks
    Kumar

    1. Vedran says:

      Hi Kumar
      Nightlife and Tevolution allow you to have both pay-per-post and pay-per-subscription packages. When users pay for a subscription, they’ll be able to submit a limited number of posts (in a limited time period). When it comes to payments…the plugin comes with an offline payment method (PreBank transfer). Of course, you can turn off payment altogether and do it off site.

      If you’ll have further questions about Nightlife feel free to contact me directly (you’ll get a reply much faster) -> vedran[at]templatic[dot]com

      Cheers
