I'm starting a project with the following idea:
A place on the web where Events, Seminars, Courses, Hotel Meetings organizers can announce and offer their Events, sell their Event tickets, manage reservations on web or by their own and allow people who want to assist to those events use a forum where they can share their ideas, share transport so that they can travel together to an event, offer or share accommodation in their own houses or change experiences about how was that event or whatever...
The idea is to use WordPress as CMS, Woocommerce for announcing Events and selling tickets, and a Forum or similar for the community and also as a kind of Helpdesk Support.
bbPress as forum is easy to implement on Wordpress as a plugin, but I'm also starting to see the flexibility and power of Xenforo.
1.- I've read about a couple of add-ons and bridges for a Xenforo | Wordpress Connection but it seems on those bridges users are handeld in Xenforo and not in Wordpress but I'm not quite sure what does really means.
2.- Is it possible to create a product in Woocommerce (which is handled as a post in Wordpress) or a post and that automagically that post creates a thread in Xenforo?
3.- Are there Xenforo Wordpress Widgets for those Bridges? So that you can see Xenforo last posts, hot threads and so on in Wordpress?
4.- I heard about this Xenforo Add-on called Conversation Essentials, what can it actually be used for? As I'm not a Xenforo Licensed Member I'm not able to read Add-ons Informations. I don't know why exactly because there more a potential user can find out about Xenforo add-ons the more eager and interested would be in Xenforo or maybe I'm doing something wrong.
5.- Is there a plugin for Xenforo that I can use to facilitate Car Sharing, House Sharing and that kind of stuff to the users?
6.- Any add-on related to Calendar and Event Management? There is a lot of that for Wordpress but I'm sure Xenforo can do a lot of staff that I'm not aware of, since I hardly know the product (former IPB user)
Any ideas will be very welcome
