How do I display events?

You must first create a page for your events to be displayed on. Then you will need to select that page in the drop down on the CalendarPress Settings page.

What URL will my events have?

Your events will adopt the URL of the page you select to display your calendar on, with the slug for the event appended to that.

Where can I get support?
