The Events Calendar

The Events Calendar is a carefully crafted, extensible plugin that lets you easily share your events. Beautiful. Solid. Awesome.

Is there a shortcode available for The Events Calendar?

No, this plugin does not use a shortcode nor is one available at the time being. However, the premium add-on Events Calendar PRO comes with widget shortcodes that allow you to post any PRO widget (including the mini calendar) into a post or page.

Are there any troubleshooting steps you'd suggest I try that might resolve my issue before I post a new thread?

First, make sure that you're running the latest version of The Events Calendar (4.0 as of this release). If you're running Events Calendar PRO it needs to match the version number of The Events Calendar. And if you've got any other add-ons, make sure those are current / running the latest code as well.

The most common issues we see are either plugin or theme conflicts. You can test if a plugin or theme is conflicting by manually deactivating other plugins until just The Events Calendar is running on your site. If the issue persists from there, revert to the default Twenty Fourteen theme. If the issue is resolved after deactivating a specific plugin or your theme, you'll know that is the source of the conflict.

Note that we aren't going to say "tough luck" if you identify a plugin/theme conflict. While we can't guarantee 100% integration with any plugin or theme out there, we will do our best (and reach out the plugin/theme author as needed) to figure out a solution that benefits everyone.

I'm still stuck. Where do I go to file a bug or ask a question?

Users of the free The Events Calendar should post their questions in the plugin's WordPress.org forum, which we hit about once a week (usually on Wednesdays). Please make sure to read our sticky post providing an overview of the support we provide free users BEFORE posting. If you find you're not getting support in as timely a fashion as you wish, you might want to consider purchasing a PRO license.

If you're already a PRO user, you're entitled access to our more actively-monitored Events Calendar PRO forum on our website. We can provide a deeper level of support here and hit these forums on a daily basis during the work week. Generally, except in times of increased support loads, we reply to all comments within 24-48 hours during the business week.

Events Calendar PRO looks awesome! I'm sold! How can I get my hands on it?

Events Calendar PRO can be purchased directly on our website. There are five (5) license types available, and all licenses include 1 year of access to support + updates.

I'm interested in PRO or another add-on, but there are a few questions I've got before making the purchase. Can you help me get those addressed?

Absolutely. If you're not finding your questions answered on the product pages, hit up our pre-sales forum on our site. You can save yourself some time by reviewing the threads first to verify if your question has already been asked. If it hasn't, post a new thread as a guest. We'll get you a reply as quickly as we can, so you can make an informed decision regarding purchase.
