Event Organiser for WordPress

Event Organiser is a WordPress plugin by stephenh1988 that adds event management that integrates well with your WordPress site.

By using WordPress’ in-built ‘custom post type’, this plug-in allows you to create events that have the same functionality as posts (can support (if required) descriptions, thumbnails, comments etc), while adding further features that allow you to manage your events. This includes the possibility of repeating your event according to complex schedules and assign your events to venues. This can all be done through an intuitive user interface, which allows your to view your events in the familiar WordPress list or view all occurrences of your events in a calendar page in the amin area.

The plug-in functions as is, including template pages for Events, event archives, venues and event category pages, that should work with most themes . To override the default templates, simply create your own (appropriately named) template files in your theme directory. For a description of the functions that allow you to output event specific information, see the documentation.
