Fortunately, though WordPress doesn’t enable these functions out of the box, there’s a plugin you can use. Modern Events Calendar is an easy way to manage events of all kinds on your WordPress site. As the name suggests, the core benefit of Modern Events Calendar is that it lets you create an events calendar that looks pretty great out of the box.

In MEC 5.2.5 we’ve prepared 3 very important features to help you during the Covid-19 pandemic. You can now display normal labels and the reason for the event’s cancelation in shortcodes and the Single Event Page. You can also set a url for your locations so your location can act as a URL display for livestreams/webinars.

There is also a feature that was added in the last update. Once you set the status of an event, those changes are reflected in the schema as well so that Google can detect your events’ status easier.Read More

This plugin looks very stylish and works great. It is also well supported for updates which is reassuring. My client is very happy with it because it is fairly easy to use once it’s set up. Thanks for your hard work on this plugin!

I love it… design functionality, features, responsive, support and… M.E. Calendar is growing fast and when I see the changelog, I amazed. I would like the reservation system to be free, but it isn’t… But I love it yet…
