I’m pleased to announce that the latest update to the MDJM Event Management plugin is now available. Download Now.

This particular release excites me more than any previous releases as we have introduced some major functionality that will help MDJM become the #1 choice in event management solutions on WordPress.

Our employee interface now allows for new roles to be created and multiple roles to be assigned to your employees. This enables you to distinguish against perhaps a photographer, a DJ or whatever roles your employees have within your business.

Additionally, multiple employees can be assigned to an event.

On the permissions side we’ve made some significant changes. Each role can now be assigned granular permissions which determine what functionality they have within the MDJM Event Management plugin once they are logged in. Restrict some roles to just view their own event, others to view all, some to be able to create clients, add venues, view finances, and others not. The list is pretty extensive.

Another enhancement here is the ability to restrict WordPress admins from being admins over MDJM and therefore being able to see all your business data. Now, your web developer now longer has access to any of the MDJM modules, unless you specifically say so.

Granular Permissions

Another biggie for me is the introduction of templates for front end content delivery. In the past we’ve struggled to ensure that our Client Zone page layouts remain compatible with the thousands of themes available for WordPress. Now that’s all changed with the introduction of templates.

Using WordPress Child Themes combined with the MDJM Content Tags you can now fully customise the look, feel and data displayed on each and every Client Zone page.

By simply copying the default templates to your [child] theme directory, you can make as many changes as needed and the next time your theme or the MDJM plugin is updated, your changes will remain in tact. You can even copy across the default css file. This really does open up a whole new range of possibilities for how you display and present information to your clients.

It also means that theme designers can now write themes specifically for MDJM. If you’re interested in doing just that, I would love to hear from you.
