Help

Welcome to The Events Calendar, a full-featured events management system for WordPress. Thank you so much for using the labor of our love. We are Modern Tribe and we are here to help you be awesome.

If you aren’t familiar with The Events Calendar, check out our new user primer. It’ll introduce you to the basics of what the plugin has to offer and will have you creating events in no time. From there, the resources below — extensive template tag documentation, FAQs, video walkthroughs and more — will give you a leg up as you dig deeper.

Additional resources available include:

We hit the The Events Calendar forum here on WordPress.org about once a week, assisting users with basic troubleshooting and identifying bugs that have been reported. (If you are looking for more active support, might we suggest buying a PRO license? Our team hits the Premium Forums daily.)

Some things to consider before posting on the forum:

  • Look through existing threads before posting a new one and check that there isn’t already a discussion going on for your issue.
  • Your issue will be solved more quickly if you run a few checks before making a support request. Deactivate your plugins one by one – if the issue is fixed by deactivating a plugin you know you’ve got a plugin conflict. To test your Theme, revert to the default Twenty Twelve Theme to see if you are still experiencing the problem. If not, your Theme is the issue. Please provide this information when making your support request.
  • Sometimes, just resetting your permalinks can fix the issue. Visit Events -> Settings -> Permalinks, save your permalinks with a different option and then save with your preferred choice again. This can solve events-related problems and is worth a shot before creating a new thread.

Still not happy? Shoot us an email to [email protected] or tweet to @TheEventsCal and tell us why. We’ll do what we can to make it right.
