    This is the best event calendar plugin out there, but the shortcode does not work in a widget. Is there some way to put an unordered list of say, the next 3 or 5 events in a sidebar widget?

    Even php code would be fine. thanks.

    to use shortcode in textwidgets, you need to add this into functions.php of your theme:

    add_filter('widget_text', 'do_shortcode');

    The best - where have you been? There are 2 issues:

    A - The dates/times set for start and end do not validate

    B - If those dates are not legal the form breaks. You have to start from new.
