Upcoming changes to Events Calendar

While there is not a definitive date for its release, The Events Calendar version 6.0 will remove the legacy styles from the plugin entirely, and all users will be forced to use the updated styles. To be better prepared for this coming update, we encourage all WiscWeb sites to change their display setting to use the new styles.

Activate The Events Calendar plugin

The Events Calendar plugin can be activated by site administrators by following the instructions located at WiscWeb - WordPress UW Theme - Self Service Plugin Activation / Deactivation. Once this is activated, you will see an Events option in your left menu. Please remember that the use of plugins is only available to site administrators. Site editors will not be able to create or edit any events.

For more information on how to use The Events Calendar, please refer to the vendor's help documentation.
