Ticketsolve plugin for Craft CMS 3.x

This plugin will pull Venues, Shows and Events from a Ticketsolve XML feed and store them for easy access in your Craft website.

The AutoSync feature will keep your site in sync with Ticketsolve by updating every 15 minutes. There's also the option to sync manually with the click of a button.

A new field type called "Ticketsolve Shows" lets you relate Shows to your site's entries.

The Ticketsolve section in the Control Panel lets you browse all Venues, Shows and Events that have been imported into the site.

Twig extension allows for easy integration of Venues, Shows and Events in your templates.

NOTE: This is not an official Ticketsolve plugin.

Requirements

This plugin requires:

  • Craft CMS 3.0.0-beta.23 or later;

  • SimpleXML extension for PHP;

  • Disabled ONLY_FULL_GROUP_BY mode in MySQL e.g. with:

    SET GLOBAL sql_mode=(SELECT REPLACE(@@sql_mode,'ONLY_FULL_GROUP_BY',''));

Installation

To install the plugin, follow these instructions.

  1. Open your terminal and go to your Craft project:

    cd /path/to/project
    
  2. Then tell Composer to load the plugin:

    composer require burnthebook/craft3-ticketsolve
    
  3. In the Control Panel, go to Settings → Plugins and click the "Install" button for Ticketsolve.

Configuring Ticketsolve

In the Control Panel, go to Settings → Ticketsolve and enter the URL of your Ticketsolve XML feed.

Enable AutoSync or, for advanced users, create a cron job on your server. See Syncing.

To trigger the sync manually, go in Control Panel → Ticketsolve and click the "Sync Now" button.

Syncing

The plugin comes with an AutoSync option which will automatically sync from the XML feed every 15 minutes or so via a pseudo cron job.

For more robust syncing, you can disable Auto Sync in the plugin settings and trigger it from a proper server cron job using the following Craft console command:

craft ticketsolve/feed/sync
