MF Gig Calendar is a simple event calendar plugin for WordPress. I created it to list my gigs on my own music website, but since it could really be a useful tool for anyone I’ve released it into the wild of the Internet through the WordPress Repository.

In the process I tried to create something that was flexible and easy to use and would work for more than just musicians. I’ve added a few features since it started… beginning and end dates […]
