FAQ

Can I customize how the date is displayed?

Yes! You can control and customize date and time formatting. Go to Calendar > Settings.

The most commonly used formats are pre-populated for you to select, or you can select ‘Custom’ and format things exactly what you want.

Be sure to click the ‘Help’ button on the top-right of the admin screen to get details on how everything works. You can achieve just about any result imaginable.

Where can I ask for help and support?

You can submit a support ticket or pre-sale question from our support page at any time.

Can I have recurring / repeating events?

The premium versions of Sugar Calendar have recurring / repeating event features (Personal, Plus, Professional, and Ultimate). Choose from daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly events.

The Professional and Ultimate versions will include the soon-to-be-released Advanced Recurring pro add-on that will offer the best recurring / repeating event capabilities available on any WordPress plugin!

Can I display Google Maps with my Events?

Yes, there is a free add-on for showing maps. This add-on works with both lite and full versions of Sugar Calendar.

Can I have event registration forms?

We have built free add-ons that provides integration with two popular form builders:

I am getting a 404 / “page not found” error.

If you are getting these types of errors when viewing an event page, you may need to resave your permalink structure. Go to Settings > Permalinks and click “Save Changes”. Then try viewing the page again.

The plugin isn't one of these packaged calendars, bundled with dozens of features you don't need and looking completely off from the rest of your site; instead, it provides the basis for a calendar that you can hack about with + a nice backend that my client finds easy to use

This is an incredibly solid plugin to use as a base, if you're familiar with php and css. I've tried several others, and this one is better than all the others I've tried!

Huge fan! Love the simple nature of this plugin. Perfect for a site that just needs a basic calendar with none of the bloat that comes along with The Events Calendar.

Very usefull. I paid for pro version and it does excactly that it says. !!!! I translated (the pro version) in greek language

I love the simplicity of this plug-in. Some events plug-ins have way too many options and it can get overwhelming to my content administrators. The premium version is not that expense either, but in most cases... the free will will be all you need.
