The Events Calendar was created over ten years ago and is now installed on over 800,000 WordPress sites. Its popularity is due in part to its robust feature-set and ease-of-use. As the plugin has been improved over time, its design has lagged behind. Modern Tribe, the digital design and development agency behind The Events Calendar, decided it was finally time to redesign and modernize the calendar’s UX.
WordPress webmasters that use the plugin will be pleasantly surprised with the new version. The UI has a fresh minimalist look that integrates well with most WordPress themes, and all calendar views are optimized for mobile devices. The redesign also comes with a new map view that has been significantly improved.
The Events Calendar has a free Core version and a subscription-based Pro version. The plugin can be extended with add-ons, like its Event Aggregator, which can automatically import events from Meetup, Eventbrite, Google Calendar, iCalendar, and other URLs.
