An easy-to-use visual community calendar that allows authorized users to add, edit, move, copy, resize, delete and filter events into customizable categories - supports daily, weekly, monthly and yearly repeating events. Calendars can be added to your site by typing "[calendar]" shortcode in the body of a page, a post or a text widget. Event lists are similarly added via the "[eventlist]" shortcode. Both shortcodes are highly customizable with numerous display options.

NOTE: The plugin supports multiple eventlist instances per page, but only one calendar instance.
This plugin does not support WordPress MU.
