Kino Events Calendar Plugin for WordPress

WARNING: This plugin is out of date! Use at your own risk and consider backing up your website first.

We’re proud to announce that the Kino Events Calendar Plugin for WordPress is now gold and available free for download.

The Kino Events Calendar is a simple yet flexible calendar plugin for WordPress. It works as an upgrade to the standard WordPress calendar plugin.

Once installed the calendar will sit in the sidebar. You can also easily select an Events page which shows all current and future events in a logical order. The calendar requires PHP5 to be running on your server.

The admin area enables you to add, edit and remove events quickly and easily, and changing colours is a breeze. The Kino Events Calendar does not use blog posts to handle events but rather lets you add events manually. This flexibility makes integrating the calendar into client sites much more feasible, and the colour changing options allow for simple branding too.

Click the following link to download the Kino Creative Events Calendar Plugin for WordPress.


Install the plugin as you would any other WordPress plugin. Once installed you’ll see a new tab in the CMS called “Events”, underneath which are two buttons for Settings and Events.

  • Settings – change the colours of the events and select which page you’d like a list of current and future events to be displayed.
  • Events – Add the events to the calendar. It’s self explanatory, but make them active if you want them to show up on your website.

Once you have input all the event information you want then go Appearance>Widgets and move the Kino Events widget into the sidebar. Your event calendar is now live!


  • Change colours of listed events  and their mouse over states on the sidebar calendar
  • Add events manually
  • Make events active or inactive without the need to delete them
  • Display event listings on a page of your choice
