Actually, I have a page with that shortcode already on it, but since posting this question I've hidden it from view from the navigation bar. It is still publicly accessible. The page works fine as far as I can tell, but the link from the main page does not take me to it.
I ended up using a self made events list because we wanted the description page to be separate from the registration page since the description box in the event creation page is very user unfriendly. It's much easier to create an event description using wordpress's built in page creation system, and then just link to the addon's registration page. We tried putting it on the same page as the event registration, but then you see the description again when you get the registration confirmation. Not exactly what a user is expecting, and they might miss the confirmation message since it's scrolled off the screen.
So I guess this question is a little moot since now I'd rather have the link on the main page go to the description, instead of straight to the registration. I guess it would be nice if this were configurable. I'm loath to get into the code to make it go to the same place as "more info" for fear of screwing something up, and out of fear of not being able to upgrade later.
