Basic Usage

Once you have created your events, the calendar can be displayed, as shown in the demo, using the following short code:


If you would like to show a calendar of only events from a particular category, then do this:

[sc_events_calendar category="category-name"]

And if you would like to show events from more than one category, but not all, do this:

[sc_events_calendar category="category-name, second-category"]

You will also find several new Event widgets in your Appearance > Widgets page.

Along with the calendar views, Sugar Event Calendar also has an events archive that shows the events in the order they occur and in the same styling / layout as your current WordPress theme. The archive is located at
