1. Getting Started with WordPress

Conference Pro is a WordPress Theme (Tip: What is WordPress?) designed to enhance your technology conference, meeting, or event.

If you are planning a conference, meeting, seminar, workshop or similar event, congratulations you have made the right choice. Using Conference Pro requires an intermediate knowledge of WordPress.

This means that you should have basic knowledge of using WordPress. Our theme is made for WordPress.org (as opposed to WordPress.com) this means that you need a hosting provider where you can install WordPress and activate Conference Pro . If you don’t have a hosting provider, we suggest WPEngine.

If you are not confident with WordPress, we suggest 3 actions:

  • 1. Watch the following Videos: What is WordPress?How to Install WordPressThe Dashboardand read the handy guides at WPBeginner. Everything you need to know about running a WordPress site is on the web. WordPress is an open-source software with a huge and helpful community of users. You will find answer to any concerns you may have.
  • 2. Run a test installation with the default theme and give it a whirl. Play with it and get confident with different sections of the Dashboard.
  • 3. Use WordPress Forums and Docs. Search the forums for your question, there will probably be an answer. If there isn’t don’t be afraid to ask, you will find WordPress community eager to help and friendly.

2. Getting Started With Conference Pro

We developed Conference Pro utilizing the core WordPress functionality as the basic foundation. It is designed to showcase your event with great functionality and beautiful design.

Using Conference Pro you will be able to:

– Define and display all the data necessary for your event: sessions, performers, sponsors, points of interest, tickets, exhibitors and media.

  • Show your event schedule.
  • Let your attendees buy their tickets using Woocommerce, Eventbrite, EventEspresso, Gravity Forms, Ticket tailor or Xing Events services.
  • Show all your social media links: Email, RSS, Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Linkedin, Pinterest.
  • Integrate with Facebook and Twitter.
  • Include an awesome countdown timer.
  • And so much more…

You will be able to do all this and more by focusing on two different areas:

– Conference Pro Customization

– Conference Pro Dashboard Sections

But first things first.

Let’s install and activate Conference Pro .

as well as your Eventbrite account.

In order to get these social media channels working correctly in Conference Pro, you will need to create applications in those social media channels and then enter the details here.

Twitter – first we have to create a Twitter Application, go to the apps.twitter.com website.

Log in with your Twitter Account and then click on the create new app button.

4.16-002

Enter the following information: Name, Description and Website. Then Accept the Rules and click on the button ‘Create your Twitter application’.

4.17-003

The new application has been created. Click on the Keys and access tokens tab. On this tab you will see a section labelled ‘your access token’.

4.17-004

Click on the ‘Create my access token’ button, and an authorized access token and secret will be generated for your account and the current application. We are going to need to enter these values in the Conference Pro theme.

4.17-005

The values in the snapshots are just an example, you need your own generated values.

Facebook First we have to create a Facebook Application, start by going to https://developers.facebook.com/apps website.

The last tab on Theme Options screen is Tools. Conference Pro provides a function to populate the site with dummy content and import data from Facebook and Eventbrite.

 

Please read this carefully. By clicking on Import button; you will populate the whole site with dummy content. While this is great if you don’t know where to start, it is non revertible.

Therefore you will need to delete the unnecessary content generated. This can take quite some time. We suggest to populate with dummy content only if you are not sure about how WordPress works and want just to edit content and pictures. The dummy data generator only generates content such as sessions, speakers and media.

Note: Populating the site with dummy content does not exclude reading this guide as you may still need to refer to it to change the populated options.

To open your free account, click ‘Sign Up’ and enter your details.

After signing up, you can click ‘Add a new event‘ on the dashboard to start creating your first event.

 

On this page you will be able to add your event details, including start and finish times, an event description and postcode.

 

 

Further down you’re able to create ticket types and customise them.

Ticket groups can also be used to separate types by time or date. Click ‘Add a new ticket type‘ to get started.

 

Several advanced settings are available for tickets, including ticket descriptions, the ability to add additional fees and to allocate minimum purchase amounts. Make sure to allocate a quantity of tickets for sale!

Click ‘Save ticket‘ when you’re done.

 

 

In this example there are three ticket types, two of which have been put into a ticket group. This way customers will know that the optional film screening is only available on some tickets.

 

 

The last section of this page allows organisers to change which currency they wish to use for ticket sales, in addition to other options. Save your event to continue.

 

After saving your changes, you will be taken to the summary page for your new event. Here you can access a variety of other options. Documentation for these can be found here.

 

 

From here you can click ‘Website embed codes‘ on the left bar and click the ‘Directions’ drop-down to access the responsive WordPress widget.

First, install the WordPress plugin. The short-code can then be added to the ‘Registration Embed Code’ field of the theme’s registration widget, or placed (by itself) anywhere on your site.

 

 

If there are paid ticket types listed for your event, you will need to set up a payment system before the event can be made live. The ‘[DRAFT]’ notice will automatically disappear when you open sales.

To set up a payment system, navigate back to the ‘Event summary‘ page and click ‘Add a new payment system‘.

You can pick between Stripe and PayPal, or use both as you please. A comparison of each is availablehere.

 

 

Once you have set up an account and selected a payment system, you can put the event on sale, or close it later, from the same page.

Remember that this is only a quick start guide to the Ticket Tailor WordPress widget. For a more thorough description of the other customisation features offered by Ticket Tailor, please refer to the help documentation here.

8. Best practices and Tips

We suggest to follow our directions and use the sections as instructed. Using the sections in different ways may result in compromising the layout. We won’t be able to help in that case. Install as few Plugins as possible.

Conference Pro is a very flexible theme that should fulfill all your needs. We custom developed all the different functions. There are no plugins requirements. The performance of your theme is strictly linked to installing as few plugins as possible and to respecting the section purposes.

We remind you we do not offer support or fixes when external plugins are installed. If you install them you do at your own risk. Do backup always. Before making any changes do run a backup. We have a long history of customers losing their work because they did not back up.
