This plugin adds an Event post type to the WordPress admin where you can add events. You can specify title, description, categories, date and time of the event.

Multiple day events are supported. Events that repeat yearly, monthly or weekly are also supported and have the option for an end date.

The shortcode [calendar] will display a large monthly calendar. It's Ajax powered allowing you to go to the next and previous months without page refreshes. It degrades gracefully if JavaScript is disabled.

The shortcode [upcoming-events] will display a simple unordered list of the next five upcoming events. This is perfect for using in a text widget.

The shortcode [mini-calendar] displays a smaller Ajax calendar more suited for use in text widgets and sidebars.

Calendar Options

The [calendar] shortcode supports year and month attributes if you wish to display a specific month: [calendar year="2015" month="09"]

Upcoming Events List Options

If you want to show more or less than the default five events, use the "num_events" attribute: [upcoming-events num_events="3"].

You can also filter an upcoming event list by one or more categories using the shortcode: [upcoming-events categories="birthdays,news"]
