Quick Event Calendar

Description

Quick Event Calendar is a very simple, performant and WordPress-integrated event calendar plugin. Quick Event Calendar allows you to add posts, events or any other custom post type to a flexible, responsive calendar which can be placed in a post, page or widget.

The calendar works on one page only using AJAX loading. All events (or posts) in one month are displayed under the calendar. It is simple, fast, with no bloated styles and visual scripts. Use the included themes to style your calendar. Use the default or the minimal theme to match your current WordPress theme appearance.

The calendar is feature-packed: works with custom posts, only needs one page, includes predefined themes and is responsive.

Select the desired post type, select the desired category (if post type is ‘post’) and select which posts you want to show. For an event calendar, the default should be both published and scheduled/future posts.

In case you want to use custom meta fields, the calendar works with preexisting meta fields. Using custom meta fields requires a third-party plugin to add new fields.
