New features in the core and bonus plugins

Core version 3.5.9 and Bonus version 2.6

Today’s release contains some new features as well as some minor tweaks to improve the code.

The core (free) version of the plugin now supports a new shortcode – spiffy-week. This will display one week of the calendar at a time, with arrows to navigate to the previous and next weeks.

The bonus (paid) version contains two new features:

  • a new option to specify user level for front end submit, the default is contributor. You can set this to “anyone” to not require an account to submit an event.
  • an option to enable recurring events in the front end submit form, the default is disabled.
