Attendee output control. Eventbrite returns a lot of information in regards to each attendee. You can filter out what you do not want by creating a filter. Use the example code bellow in your theme or a functionallity plugin:

// See: http://developer.eventbrite.com/doc/events/event_list_attendees/ 'only_display' for allowed keys.
function frosty_eventbrite_attendee_data_to_remove( $data ) {
    // If you want to start fresh use the next line
    //$data = array( 'ticket_id', 'tax' ); // etc..

    // If you want to remove additional info from the default
    //$newdata = array( 'eventbrite_fee', 'created' ); // etc..
    //$data = array_unique( array_merge( $newdata, $data ) );
    return $data;
add_filter( 'eventbrite_attendees_only_display', 'frosty_eventbrite_attendee_only_display );

Removed is the old app_key and replaced with the user_key. If you want to use your own app key filter it like so:

function frosty_eventbrite_attendees_app_key( $key ) {
    return 'MY_NEW_KEY';
add_filter( 'eventbrite_attendees_app_key', 'frosty_eventbrite_attendees_app_key' );

Template $make_clickable example; here are two examples:

$name = 'display_name'
function frosty_eventbrite_attendees_make_display_name_clickable() {
    return true; //default is false
add_filter( "eventbrite_attendees_{$name}_make_clickable", 'frosty_eventbrite_attendees_make_display_name_clickable' );

$names = array( 'display_name', 'company' );
foreach ( $names as $name ) :
    add_filter( "eventbrite_attendees_{$name}_make_clickable", "frosty_eventbrite_attendees_make_clickable" );

function frosty_eventbrite_attendees_make_clickable() {
    return true; //default is false

  1. are you still supporting this plugin? I do not think Eventbrite publishes the rss feed of the attendee list…..can you help me out?

    1. They still are, but may not show a link to the rss feed. You’ll have to find the ID somewhere on the event page, than manually enter the feed address like so: http://www.eventbrite.com/rss/event_list_attendees/778341039 where you would change the bold text to your event ID.

      Maybe try clicking on the tweet this button to get the ID?

  2. are they still supporting it? i’ve tried all the numbers i can find and nothing is working.

    1. scratch that, got it to work on the last number i found. ay chance of getting different fields to display?

  3. Please help!
    Since upgrading to version 0.3 I cannot get it to work like before.
    I keep getting this error message: “Error: Please define an Event in your Shortcode.”
    I’m using this shortcode format as specified: [eventbrite-attendees feed="http://www.eventbrite.com/rss/event_list_attendees/xxxxxxxxxx/" /]
    where xxxxxxxxxx is the Eventbrite event ID.

        1. I had no issues when I used the latest plugin version with your eventbrite ID.

          [eventbrite-attendees feed="http://www.eventbrite.com/rss/event_list_attendees/1485229361"]
          1. Still not working… that’s really odd. I’m running the latest version of WP. Is there anyway I can download the pre-0.3 version of the plugin? Thanks

  4. Awesome plugin. Any chance for widget support? This would make a fabulous scrolling widget. Cheers!

  5. Can we make it where we just get the attendee’s name. I don’t need their order # or the # of tickets?

    1. At this time it outputs each attendee’s first name, last name, company, job title and website. All of the fields you don’t want can be hidden with some javascript or CSS.

  6. Can anyone help?

    I have used this plugin about a year ago and worked perfectly. Now I have been trying for an hour to get this to work and nothing but the following error:

    An error has occurred
    exception 'Exception' with message 'Please provide your User Key in the URL as "?user_key=".' in /home/laeventc/public_html/wp-content/plugins/eventbrite-attendees-shortcode/library/classes/Eventbrite.php:109

    #12 /home/laeventc/public_html/index.php(17): require('/home/laeventc/...')
    #13 {main}

    I have created an APP key and entered it in settings. I have the Event ID.


  7. Hi, I can’t seem to get the filter to work but we would just like to have the Job Title and Company of the attendee displaying. Do you know how to do this?

    Thanks in advance
