• Hi,
    I am on version 6.1.1 in my dev site. I want to maintain my own format, so I set Enable All Styling to No. But the Events Calendar widget on my sidebar is not working. The “<” and “>” are quite big and display all the calendar numbers. It no longer display a grid calendar on the sidebar. How can this be resolved? Thanks.

  • I too am having this same problem. In addition to the description above, the days of the week and the number of days are listed in one column all the way down the page.

    Any idea on how to resolve this?

    If you wish to revert to the original concise mini calendar widget, paid support recommended doing this:


    your website





    create new:

    “plugins” folder

    ->add copy in version 5 file:

    Hi TreeTrail,

    I would be happy to give that a try, but where can I find calendar-small.php?



    Hi cer0c,

    I’d attach it here if I knew how. Find a version 5 install, look in this path:

    your website
    templates (yes a 2nd folder down, but don’t make 2 in your child theme)


    Hi April,

    Can you matbe copy the code into your reply?

    Thanks in advance,


    I pulled an old version of events-manager and this is the small-calendar.php file:

    // as of version 6, this is not to be used further, see file below

    I hope the bboard code tags don’t mess it up.

    However, I added the code to the version 6 events-manager, and it did not fix the calendar.

    Hi all,

    I’ve found version 5 of calendar-small.php, see code block below. Which gives me back the “old” small calendar, when placed in
