Events Calendar’s Plugin

Events-Calendar is a diverse replacement for the original calendar included with WordPress adding many useful functions to keep track of your events. The plugin has an easy to use admin section that displays a big readable calendar and lets you add and delete events. The plugin is widget ready so you can easily add a small calendar to the main sidebar with the ability to roll over the highlighted event day to see a brief description of the event or click the day to get a full description of the event without ever leaving your current page. If you are not using a widget ready theme, you can still have the calendar on your sidebar. Simply place “” in the sidebar file. The widget can also show a specified number of events as a list. You will find these options under the widget option.

The ability to add a large public calendar is now available by posting a page and adding “[[EventsCalendarLarge]]” to the page content to create a stand alone calendar page. Also, when entering an event from the admin section, you can check the box saying “Create Post for Event”, which will cause a post to be created with the event information.

Installation :
Upload events-calendar folder to the `/wp-content/plugins/ directory.
Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
Set options under Events Calendar/Options on the admin menu.

When updating you will need to deactivate and reactivate the plugin.

    I (and a lot of folks) have been looking for / waiting for an ‘Events Calendar’ that can be used on wordpress.COM sites…. It seems that wordpress.ORG users have a couple different options to choose from, but people got nothing…

    …do you have any ideas on why and/or on when this situations might be addressed? …. numerous requests to wp get the usual “we’re looking into it” response.
