The theme fully supports Events Calendar and Events Calendar Pro versions.  

If you don't need the Events Calendar plugin simply don't install it and all the features, codes and anything required for the Event Calendar will not be loaded. Vice versa, if you need to set up the Events Calendar just install it like you do with other plugins. Once installed and activated, the Events Calendar menu will be added in the WordPress main navigation menu on the left.

 

Some of the functionality you see on the demo website is only supported by the Event Calendar pro, the Filter Bar and the Community Events paid add-ons. 

Here is detailed info what these add ons include in addition to the free Event Calendar version:


Event Calendar Pro

Filter Bar

Community Events


The sample events from demo website are not included in the general demo content import.  In case you need the sample events from the demo website - please open a ticket at our Help Desk - support.vamtam.com.
