Support » Plugin: The Events Calendar Shortcode & Block » Poor Formatting

  • For me, the formatting was so poor, this plugin was a waste of time. Supposedly, you can apply CSS styling — but I found the selectors to be unclear, and I was unable to apply appropriate margins to the bullet list. Being as that may be, I would have also preferred the event date to be right under the title, no line spaces. This plugin is too much trouble, for little gain. Personally, I would never pay $29 a year just for styling — but it looks like the developer is hopeful.

    Hi @alajoann,

    Sorry to hear you weren’t able to get the output styled how you would like! As described in the plugin description and shown in the screenshot the plugin comes with no formatting at all (vs. poor) but a number of options to filter and show only the events you wish, anywhere on your site.

    I would have appreciated the opportunity to answer any questions and point you in the right direction before leaving a 1-star review. If you head under Events > Shortcode with the plugin installed, there is a description of some of the tags. I made a video here and though it references the pro version it shows the same process to inspect the elements and insert rules to change the formatting how you’d like:

    As for the pro version it includes a number of additional filters, designs, and even the ability to create your own custom template as described here:

    If those options and time savings through not needing to add any CSS aren’t valuable enough it’s certainly fine to stick with the free version, as many thousands of users have.

    Cheers!
