    Just what I was looking for. Great if you could add "place", but hey I can just encode that as part of start/repeat dates with the 'alpha' option.

    I use this in function.php to have an easy shortcode for it:


    // Minimalistic Event Manager
    function my_mem_settings() {
      mem_plugin_settings( array( 'page' ), 'alpha' );
    }
    add_action( 'mem_init', 'my_mem_settings' );
    
    /**
    Find Date in a String
    
        01/01/2012 will return > 01-01-2012
        30-12-11 will return > 30-12-2011
        1 2 1985 will return > 01-02-1985
        10.12.1850 will return > 10-12-1850
        5 12 85 will return > 05-12-1985
        5 October 2012 will return > 02-10-2012
        MAY 5th 1985 will return > 05-05-1985
        1st March 81 will return > 01-03-1981

    Thanks for the first rating :)

    About the place: I would recommend to use a custom taxonomy for that, rather than a Custom Field, since a taxonomy will make it much easier to link events taking place at the same location.
