Events-Calendar is a versatile 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
<?php sidebarEventsCalendar();?> (or
<?php sidebarEventsList($number_of_items);?> if you want a list) 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 available by posting a page and adding
[events-calendar-large] 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.
Additional features will be added so make sure that you keep up to date on upcoming changes and new features by subscribing to the RSS feed on the Events Calendar site.
