The shortcode does work beautifully for me in that the list it generates is exactly what I want to see. The problem is that the links for the event names in the list don't go to the event page, they go to a page that says "Page not found." Here is the exact shortcode I'm using:
[events_list recurring=1 category="22"]
When you used the shortcode, do the links in the generated list work?
What I think is supposed to happen, that is not happening, is that the recurring=1 code should generate a list of links to the event template, not specific recurrences, and that for some reason, somewhere, I did something to break the link to the event templates (because even when I create a recurring event the "Preview Event" button takes me to "Page not found").
I've also reset all the admin settings and that didn't help.
The suggestion you mentioned by Marcus does not apply to what I am trying to do and the problem I've encountered.
I'm also already using the default 2011 theme.
Thanks for your persistence in following up on my post, Aglonwl.
