Whether you are a public speaker or someone who does public events and other engagements from time to time, you want to have a way to share your events with the world. Doing that will allow people to know where you will be at a certain time so they can come and meet you up or listen to your talk. This is also useful for those of you who are taking on multiple projects and want to let people know when you have some free time. Whatever the case, you can use External Events Calendar to add your events to WordPress.
When you add External Events Calendar to your blog, a “Events Calendar” item shows up under the “Links” section in your WordPress dashboard. Here is where you can add your events, their information, dates, and descriptions. Once you add your events to your links, you can use the special widget that this plugin has to display those events on your website.
You have the option to show only your upcoming events, all events, or the ones that you have completed. The plugin is pretty flexible too. You can modify the date format or CSS. Calendar behavior can be modified as well.
External Events Calendar is simple to use and is very customizable. If you plan to share your calendar events with the world on your website, this plugin makes it easy to do so.
