Really Simple Events

Description

Simple event module, just a title and start date/time needed! You can, of course, provide extra information about the event if you wish.
This plugin was created for bands/performers who do one off shows lasting a couple of hours rather than a few days. This plugin does not use custom post types, so you can’t asign categories or tags to events. Also there are no automatic pages created for them (you would have to do this manually).

This plugin features a small widget that you can use to embed into your themes side bar or you can just use the shortcode “[hc_rse_events]”

For advanced users, you can show just upcoming,past or all events and change the ordering by using the following shortcode “[hc_rse_events showevents=”[daterange|daterange-reverse|upcoming|upcoming-reverse|past|past-reverse|all|all-reverse]”.
You also have the ability to select which columns get output when using the shortcode as well as their ordering and finally you can change the default date format.

Check the Help/Usage page in the admin menu for the this plugin for more details and examples.
