Event Organiser adds event management that integrates well with your WordPress site. By using WordPress’ inbuilt ‘custom post type’, this plug-in allows you to create events that have the same functionality as posts 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 you to view your events in the familiar WordPress list or in a calendar page in the admin area.

How to create an event in Event Organiser
Events behave very similarly to standard posts. To create a event, select the ‘Add New’ submenu from ‘Events’ menu. The chief difference between events and post is the ‘Event Details’ metabox which sets the date and venue data related to the event.
You can also add events in the Calendar view in a manner similiar to Google Calendar. By selecting one (or multiple) days (in month mode) or times (in week/day mode) you can create an event that spans the selected period.
