@Bobjung, yes it is a pain in the ass... I'm having trouble getting the start time / end time to display, but other than that it's ok. I feel like I'm overly-picky since it took so long to install. How's the google calendar plugin? Got any specific pros / cons?
@Mikebtoronto... If you want the sidebar to show up on a normal page, I was able to make this happen by going to... Dashboard / Appearance / Widgets ... And then dragging "Events List Widget" into the sidebar. You can tinker with display and save settings there. And then once you have the widget installed, it pops up on my twenty-ten "default" template. See an example on my post-less blog here: http://www.badabinghostel.com/binglife
UNFORTUNATELY, I don't think that the side bar is ever supposed to display on the same page as the calendar. My calendar shows up on a blank page with nothing else. From the other posts/complaints I've read, I think you choose between the calendar display and the list without more advanced coding knowledge and tinkering in the plugin's template / editor, but that's def. beyond my capacity.
