Congratulations on taking a smart approach (using posts) to accomplishing something that should be a natural part of WordPress but seems to be very difficult to implement.
I'm wondering if someone could give a concise update on an issue that's not new - I've seen several posts talking about it - but addressing it would help people wanting to really embrace this plug-in.
Theme Takeover - testing this plug-in, I found that it wipes out the navigation on the sidebar of my theme. Apparently, it wreaks even more havoc on some themes. I gather the problem stems from the plug-in's use of the header and footer blowing away elements in between.
I've seen reference to a workaround, but that seems unduly complex for most users and not in the spirit of encapsulation and plug-ins generally. The beauty and power of WordPress is how seamlessly it works...yes, you can tinker to your heart's content, but you don't generally have to. So, is this something that will have a self-contained fix in an upcoming release?
I'm also wondering about one other item - more feature than problem
Use of the Events Category - Am I correct that the current required use of the events category will change? And that sub-categories will be usable?
When I installed the plug-in to test it, I already had an events category. This is a new blog, so that's not necessarily a big deal, but I'm curious - can the current plug-in coexist with existing items that don't belong to it but are in the events category?
Thanks for what you've done!
