Eventbrite Integration
If you have a new events board it may look pretty empty to start – solve this by backfilling event listings using the Eventbrite Integration plugin. All you need to get started is a publisher ID from Eventbrite.

Registration On Eventbrite For AppID
Once you installed and activated the plugin, first thing you should do is create a account on Eventbrite for getting AppID. Follow these steps for how to get AppID:
  • Register for an Eventbrite account
  • Once registered and logged in, go to the Account Settings
  • Find the App Management menu
  • In that section, create a new app & it will state what your App ID. Copy and paste that AppID into the settings of this plugin(WP-admin >> Event Listings >> Settings >> Eventbrite Integration >> Your personal OAuth token). You can create your personal OAuth token here
  • To test your personal OAuth token please test here
Eventbrite Integration Settings

Go to WP-admin >> Event Listings >> Settings >> Eventbrite Integration. Here, you can find the Eventbrite Integration Settings that you need to fill up before going ahead.

You can just pull the events by using the search parameters you define in the settings. This is an efficient and faster way to fetch events of a particular category, type or tag to your website.

Once a user does an actual search, for a location example, the Eventbrite queries will reflect this showing relevant results to your users.

Frontend View Of The Eventbrite Events

Eventbrite events are listed in a similar format to your local events of the Event Manager Plugin.

You can directly link to Eventbrite instead of going through a single event description on your site. By default it will show events with 50 per page i because eventbrite is only providing pagination with 50 events per page.
