    Hello,
    I’m so sorry for asking this b/c I know it’s going to be open ended. Is there some type of beginner’s guide for this?

    I really have no idea where to start on styling the event calendar. As you can see, http://kudzuculture.com/events/, looks horrific. I know I can style with before and after HTML tags. I just don’t know what to style. Is there a list of elements somewhere?

    Just being able to “shrink” the gargantuan calendar would do wonders for my sanity. Everything else I can deal with as I come to it. Thanks!

    Hi Jerret. No problem at all! We’re building out more and more on the documentation front every week; what we’ve got right now is at https://theeventscalendar.com/support/documentation/ – I’m this week (and likely into Monday or Tuesday) putting together a primer for new users on how to do the basics with the plugin, and we’ve got our developers putting together little tutorials on how to modify the look/feel along the way.

    Beyond the documentation, we’ve aslo got help videos (https://theeventscalendar.com/category/help-video/) and FAQs (https://theeventscalendar.com/support/faqs/) that we’re constantly adding to as well. It sounds like the issue you’re having could be resolved with a template override, discussed in the first question in the customization section of that FAQ.

    On the most basic level, have you tried the different templating options available under Settings –> The Events Calendar? One of the different options on the dropdown may help with the gargantuan calendar aspect. Let me know if this helps!
