With this plugin, you can add a block or a shortcode (which is just some text between [ and ]) on a page to display a list of your events. For example the shortcode to show next 8 events in the category "festival":
[ecs-list-events cat='festival' limit='8']
What You Can Create With The Events Calendar Shortcode Pro
You get full control over how your events are displayed, with no code required: choose to show your events in multiple layouts, with or without images, a registration link, calendar view, description, and metadata such as the venue location.
And you can even have multiple shortcodes per page. Plus, it works with the free version of The Events Calendar!

Do I get plugin updates?

Can I customize which events get displayed?
Yes! You have full control over the specific events displayed, and can filter events by 17 different criteria. We have all the basics covered, and even advanced features such as hiding sold-out events, hiding recurring events (only showing the first instance), and filtering by additional fields. You can find all details on our documentation, here.

Do you offer support if I need help?

If you can’t find the answer to your question in our support documentation, you can send us a support request. We believe customer support is key and we’ll do our very best to help resolve your issue as quickly as possible.
We aim to answer all support requests within a 24-hour period during regular business hours. Our hours are Monday through Friday, 9:00am to 5:00pm EST (eastern standard time), excluding recognized U.S. and Canadian holidays.
Note that free support is provided for our free plugins through the wordpress.org forums, but there may be a bit of a delay from our team there as priority support is given to our licensed customers.
Are Licenses Automatically Renewed?
Yes. This helps keep your license active without the need to re-purchase in a year after you notice that automatic updates stopped working and a critical bug fix was needed or your access to priority support is gone. However, the recurring payment can be canceled at any time, and if cancelled your license will stay active until the end of the term paid.
Where can I find my license keys and control my site activations?
Login to your account on this site to view your orders, downloads, licenses and site activations.
Can I upgrade to a different license?
What counts as a “site”? Can I use The Events Calendar Shortcode PRO on client sites?
A site is any URL (even a subdomain) that you install WordPress on. If you’re building client sites, you can purchase a multiple site license OR purchase an appropriate license for each client.
What types of payments do you accept?
We currently accept all major Credit Cards: Visa, MasterCard, American Express, plus PayPal.
Do you have a refund policy?
Yes we do! We stand behind the quality of our product and will refund 100% of your money within 14 days of purchase if you are unhappy with the plugin.
