Go to Settings -> Permalinks and re-save your permalinks. That will usually solve the 404 error.

Will it work with my theme?

Probably! It is designed to work with any theme that follows basic WordPress coding practices.

Reviews

Breaks DIVI

For some reason this calendar plugin breaks DIVI on my site. I don’t expect a fix but it should be known to DIVI users that this may cause issues when editing pages. As a workaround just disable the events calendar plugin and edit your pages. Then activate again.

Works but difficult to report bugs

We started using this plugin when it first rolled out and have always been quite pleased. The sad part is as they have grown they have made it very difficult to report bugs unless you pay for support. Likewise they have done away with their forums, they do not monitor “Support” area on the WordPress site and the post they have made in the WordPress support area have dead links. Sadly it is starting to look like the project is going to be abandoned.
