Throughout my time with WordPress, I have not found a good calendar/events plugin, but Events Calendar Pro (available here) changes that. It’s been the only solution I’ve found that covered everything you’d expect in a full calendar and events list. In the plugin creator’s own words:
The Events Calendar Premium plugin for WordPress enables you to rapidly create and manage events using the post editor. Features include Google Maps integration as well as default templates such as a calendar grid and event list for streamlined one click installation. Check out the full screencast here.
I purchased and rolled out the plugin onto a new site only to find out that Events Calendar Pro doesn’t work well with Thesis. However, Events Calendar Pro provides an easy way to template the plugin without touching any core files. So after some hacking and messing around, I’ve came up with a working template for Thesis.
Download the fix below and move the downloaded folder into your installed Thesis folder. Obviously you will need to already have Events Calendar Pro installed in order for the template files to do anything.
Note: I’ve tested the files with both Thesis 1.7 and Thesis 1.8b2 so far. Let me know if anyone sees any issues.
