    Is there a truly great widget for running a calendar of events? Our calendar items would each include a date, a one-line description (title) and a link to an external URL. Would love it if this came in widget form, so that we could add events through the dashboard and they automatically appear in (and expire from) the sidebar (and not necessarily have an entire post associated with the event, although that’s OK if it does). Does such a magical beast exist?

    Oh, yes.

    You can have an upcoming events list widget (configurable) and a calendar with highlighted days, and you can have a page with all the future events…

    We have been using it for 10 months now, 42 events. We have decided to have a five next upcoming events shown in the sidebar. Past ones expire and new pop up. In addition to this we have an “Events” page, where all future events are listed. We only display the calendar of the current month in the sidebar, but one could have several.

    Events are stores as posts. Use category visibility to hide that category from the posts page, if you wish. The widget links to these posts, but I guess you could edit the widgets code to link somwhere else, if you have the skill. Or pay the developer.

    Really nice.

    Next I’m trying to configure it to work better with multilingual site and Gengo. It’s not really compatible with that, but no show stoppers…
