If your theater or other venue uses the open source Audience1st software for ticket and subscription sales, and you use WordPress to host your venue’s main website, this plugin allows your site to display real-time ticket availability for upcoming performances. The plugin retrieves and parses and RSS feed from your theater’s Audience1st installation, and renders each performance’s availability using a simple “color thermometer” to indicate whether seat availability is excellent (green), limited (yellow), or sold out/nearly sold out (red). Settings can be customized in the “Appearance” menu of the WordPress admin screen.
