Events Calendar Pro

Premium Events Calendar 1.1

We have just released the 1.1 update to the WordPress premium Events Calendar plugin.

For those of you who haven’t checked it out: The Events Calendar Premium plugin for WordPress enables you to rapidly create and manage events using the custom post editor. Features include Google Maps integration, iCal support as well as default templates such as a calendar grid and event list for streamlined one click installation. Check out the full screencast here.


Premium Events Calendar release 1.1 notes:


* Events Calendar widget
* Single event ical import. Uses sp_get_single_ical_link() (must be used in the loop)


* is_home() no longer returns true on an Events view
* Debug mode introduced for users seeing wrong counts in the Events admin view. Turn on and ensure that start and end dates are set correctly before turning off. While debug mode is on, Events will not be sorted by start date properly.
* Some instances where the single.php template in your theme’s events/ directory would not load properly should now be fixed.

  1. Still hoping for headsup concerning compatibility with current them: Thesis 1.7. Thanks.

  2. Purchased this premium plugin but having issues with Event List view. Previously it showed up as chronological starting with today’s date, however the current 1.1 version is showing Events beginning 1 month in the future. Is there an easy way to fix this?

  3. Check out file:

    line: 108

    function events_get_listview_link() {
    return sp_get_gridview_link();

    should be

    function events_get_listview_link() {
    return sp_get_listview_link();

  4. Just purchased and downloaded the Premimum events calendar. It’s great but when can we expect the Eventbrite integration?:)

    1. It is in QA now, so quite soon pending any major bugs or life distractions. Eventbrite has been making updates to their api, which we have been working with to keep things stable.

  5. I purchased the premium version of the plugin and this one doesn’t work the way it should.
    The list view doesn’t display anything with the theme I created.
    The calendar view and the single are working. Though I need to use the permalink from the editor to see the single view, when I click on an event on the calendar view it’s sending me back to the empty list view. I purcahsed the premium version thinking it would solve some of the issues I had with the free version and it only raised more of them.

    How can I get some help? I tried the forum the The Events Calendar page and I don’t get any help there.

    I’m willing to pay a freelancer to solve my problem, is there a reliable place online to find a wordpress specialist?


    1. Hi Sebastien,

      We have a new support forum that we launched this week:

      The last dot release had some weird bugs and we have submitted a patch. It should be out today or tomorrow. Hopefully that will help.

      As for freelance help: I like the freelanceswitch job board or the wordpress seeking email list (

  6. Hello there !

    Thanks for, at least !!!! the pretty event management !

    Well, I have an issue in multisite WP3 : when superadmin creates a site in admin backend, the site is created, BUT the user is not affected to it, and the error

    Catchable fatal error: Object of class WP_Error could not be converted to string in /home/decouve/public_html/wp-content/plugins/the-events-calendar/the-events-calendar.class.php on line 812 appears…

  7. I’m toying with the idea of using the events Calendar 1.6.4. It appears to work well. I have just one complaint. I don’t see any way to create a recurring event.

    1. Ah well – it is free. You can pay for ECP 2.0 when it comes out and have that feature.

  8. Can this Calendar sync with events posted in Google Calendar’s??

    1. Nope – other way around. It exports.

  9. Hi Shane,

    Just bought your plugin and I’m testing it on a test site. My main question refers to transitioning from the free version to this premium version. I de-activated the free version and installed the new one but none of my events migrated to the new calendar. Is there a way of making this happen? I’m basically testing this for a client.

    The test site is this one:

    The final site is this one, you can see how we’ve been using your plugin:

    1. There is a button is the setting for the plugin that upgrades all data from the free version to the premium version.

  10. Any ETA on the tutorial/screencast to edit the CSS?

    Per your Q&A
    The plugin looks funky on my theme, what gives?

    This plugin is a lean, mean, focused piece of software that does what it advertises: manage events in WordPress in a clean, simple, and effective way! Skinning this plugin to individual themes is going to take a little extra effort from you guys – the good news is that we’re currently working on a tutorial and screencast that will help everyone out with this! Until then, just stick closely to the CSS rules that your theme is already using and you shouldn’t have too much trouble.

    Remember, the output is just HTML with CSS selectors, so you can skin it to fit in your theme by just making our stock template match up with your theme’s page.php template.

    1. There is a rough tutorial floating around the support forum. It was done for ECP 1.1.3, but most of it still applies Hope it helps.

      Rob is working on a screen cast version.

  11. Hi,
    just purchased the premium app, looks really cool, but even with the native wp3 twenty ten theme, menus do not work anymore when Events Calendar pro gets activated…pb with permalinks i guess, but cannot figure out how to deal with this

    1. Hi Guilaume, head over to the support forum and log your issue!

  12. Still hoping for headsup concerning compatibility with current them: Thesis 1.7. Thanks.

    1. Thanks to MATT – there is a very nice how to on integrating ECP and Thesis:
