If you use your WordPress site as an internet presence for your business, there’s a chance that you might also want to use it to promote events being held or sponsored by your business. You can list out events taking place in a blog post, or on a particular page, but one of the best ways to advertise that you’re holding events is by displaying them on a nice, well-designed, and organized calendar. Of course, calendars can be custom coded, but who wants to do that when there’s a free plugin that does all the hard work for you?
The Events Calendar is a calendar app that lets you create and manage an event calendar quickly and easily. With the app, you can create a calendar in your WordPress dashboard and add as many events as you want to it. You can customize the events with time, location, and description details. Multiple events occurring on the same day is totally allowed, as are recurring events. The calendar is super dynamic, allowing for events to be viewed in calendar format, list view, or day view. It offers an event search function, integration with Google Maps (in case your users need to check up on the location), and gives you the option to export to Google Cal or iCalendar so you can have your calendar with you on the go without needing internet to access it. The calendar is also fully responsive, so it’ll look great whether it’s being viewed on a desktop, tablet, or mobile device. It’s been tested with many of the major theme frameworks and should work with most themes, and in terms of style it’s totally customizable. If you’ve been looking for the perfect calendar app for your business or website, The Events Calendar is a no-brainer.
