Recommend a WordPress Plugin to Handle Events? WordPress


I am looking for a specific plugin that let's a user mark their Post as an "<strong>Event</strong>" and basically set a <strong>date</strong> for that Event on the Post page. Once that is done, the post gets published as a normal post would be onto the site. The main part is that I would like the Events to show up on the Sidebar as a list like [[LINK href=""]]this screenshot[[/LINK]]. Also as shown on the screenshot, I would like the reader to be able to toggle through months by clicking the left/right arrow.

I know there are tons of wordpress Events/Calendar Plugins out there but I could not find anything that exactly fits my needs. Also I would like to display the Events list on the sidebar but I am not using a Dynamic Sidebar so it would be cool if there were some PHP code I could just paste into sidebar.php to display the events.

That's the one I am using now. But it does not seem to have an option to filter by month. See site here -

EC3 has many options & filters, as described here:

This is the best one out there: [[LINK href=""]][[/LINK]]

It can easily be customized to be displayed in your sidebar and in the regular WP posts list.

Have you tried the AmR Events: [[LINK href=""]]AmR Events[[/LINK]]

idt comments:

Just checkout the demo.

Mirza Rahman comments:

See in the demo where it says Upcoming events, thats exactly what I want. But I also need to be able to Filter by month as shown in the screenshot. So i could switch months under neath upcoming events

idt comments:

Try changing the month of the calendar above the Upcoming events and you'll see that the events will also change based on the selected moth.

Mirza Rahman comments:

Yeah I get that. I basically just need that functionality on the Upcoming Events list somehow. I tried editing the plugin but with no luck. Any clue on how that can be achieved?
