Fulfilling one large event listing company’s need for a user-friendly save function, we crafted an update-compatible extension that would not alter the basic code of the plugin in question. We extended The Events Calendar plugin by using tribe_events_filter_view_before_filters hook.
The extension features an add-on that would provide users the ability to maintain their search history between site visits. Unlike the existing plugin, our upgrade allows for saved search history complete with designated filters; a built-in panel enables patrons to both view and edit their saves. To avoid any potential hiccups, we also enabled the plugin to redirect visitors to the login page for ensured, seamless saves.
