    Is it possible to feature or display Events on the homepage? I've tried this plug-in with no luck - 'Sticky Custom Post Types'

    Thanks - the second option looks promising but with issues (dates wrong, displays full post not summary etc). I would like to feature Events, sticky them, put them in a slide carousel... treat them like any other post. That aside - I love this plugin. Locations, recurring events, WP FullCalendar... great stuff.

    What about using the slideshow plugin - http://demo.wp-events-plugin.com/

    Thanks Marcus, I'm using the Arras theme and just figured out that it allows adjustment of the 'Post Types and Taxonomies' for it's homepage slideshow and 3 other pre-defined areas. Ideally I'd like to mix Events in with other content for our latest news stream and feature items slideshow but I'll take what I can get. I'm glad I didn't know the Post & Tax. options were in the theme or what they're for otherwise I wouldn't have found your excellent plugin!

    fyi, events are custom post types and categories/tags are custom taxonomies, so any plugin/theme supporting these well should be able to grab information from EM in some way or another (the tricky part is doing things like ordering by event date, since most things consider the post date)
