With this plugin, you can add a shortcode (which is just some text between [ and ]) on a page to display a list of your events.  For example to show next 8 events in the category "festival":


[ecs-list-events cat='festival' limit='8']


Design Options

Free Version

Basic design ready that you'll likely want to style with a bit of CSS.  The shortcode has options for showing or hiding things like the venue and image.


Pro Version

Improved designs without needing any CSS/HTML/PHP knowledge. You also get additional options like limiting the events to a certain number of days (ie. 1 day or 1 week) or show the first of a recurring series of events (see below)

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use this with the free version of The Events Calendar (by Modern Tribe)?

Yes! This plugin works with either the free or pro version of The Events Calendar plugin to show the events you want anywhere on your site.

Do I get plugin updates?

Yes! After purchase you'll get a license key, which will allow you to have automatic update checks, just like any other WordPress plugin.

Do you offer support if I need help?

Yes! We offer email support to all licensed customers.

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 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?

Yes, you can upgrade for the difference in price between the two licenses. Open a support ticket and let us know you'd like to upgrade or view available upgrades in your account.

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.

I have other pre-sale questions, can you help?
