Checkinera plugin allows you to have a fully featured, Tickera compatible check-in terminal on any WordPress website. So, although Checkinera will allow you to check the tickets in only sold through Tickera system, the Checkinera plugin itself does not require Tickera to be installed on the website where you want to perform the check-in. But let's start from the beginning.

Installing Checkinera plugin is completely the same as installing any other WordPress plugin. Once it is installed and activated, you will notice a new item in WordPress' menu labeled Checkinera. When clicked, it will load the admin page of the Checkinera where you will be able to set various different options:

  1. Logo - you can select which logo you would like to use with Checkinera on your website.
  2. Colors - you can change any color that Checkinera uses on the front end.
  3. Use Google Analytics - whether to use Google Analytics or not (we'll get into detail about this later).
  4. Google Analytics Tracking Code - paste your Google Analytics tracking code here.
  5. Track Logins - whether to track the number of logins to Checkinera on your website.
  6. Track Checkins - whether to track the number of check-ins (failed and successful).



Changing logo and colors is the fun part and if you fiddle a bit with it, you can end up with something like this:

This screenshot is just an example and uses a dummy logo and some randomly selected colors as an illustration of the possibilities.


Front end

To display Checkinera on your website, you can simply place [tc_checkin] shortcode or Gutenberg block (when adding a block simply start typing Checkinera to search and it will pop right up) on any of your pages or posts. If you have Tickera installed on the same website, then you can also use Tickera's shortcode builder within which you can select Checkin app from the dropdown menu and click Insert shortcode button which will then create a shortcode for you.

It is important to know that this will completely disable all the styling of that page or post and will load Checkinera in full width and height of the browser window where it is loaded. This is mainly to prevent any distractions from checking the tickets in but also to utilize the whole available screen real estate and make it easier for you to check the tickets in.


Setting up Google Analytics tracking

If you enable Google Analytics tracking for Checkinera on your website, you will be able to track the number of log ins as well as number of successful and failed check-ins. For some, this might be valuable information so, let's dive in to how to set it all up.

If you have set Use Google Analytics to Yes, options for setting it up will appear below. The first thing you will need to do then is to obtain your Google Analytics Tracking Code. To do this, log in with your Google account to the Google Analytics page here. Once logged in, navigate to the Admin area by clicking the Admin button in the bottom left.

After that, if don't already have an account for your website created, click Create Account and then follow the rest of the instruction. If, however, you already have an account for your website created earlier, then you can only create a property for your website that you will be using for tracking Checkinera.

Whichever of the two you choose, you will end up with the tracking code page after you finish.

Copy this tracking code in whole and then paste it to Checkinera Settings to the Google Analytics Tracking Code field and save changes.

So, with this done, if you now navigate to Google Analytics for your website, then select, for example, Real Time and then Events, if you start checking the tickets using Checkinera on your website, you will notice that events will start appearing.

If you now click the engagement within the Event Category column, for the checkin event action, it will start displaying the result of check-ins within Event Label column.
