The team at Modern Tribe that created and maintains the Events Calendar is doing a great job modernizing this tool, but unfortunately, the Theme Fusion team has not been able to keep up with the changes and there are a few problems. I am listing them here just so you know you are not alone.

  • No way to create a custom page layout for the events page. You can create a page using the calendar shortcode, but that requires the Pro version and a way to redirect from /events to something else.
  • Custom layout for an event page is limited
  • In the latest release, enableing the sharing feature inserts it multiple times
  • Using the sidebar layout that Avada provides duplicates event meta information (easy css fix below)
  • Spacing is strange on previous and next.
  • Major performance issues were plaguing the Events Calendar, but the latest release seems to have reduced this issue


A quick fix for the duplicated meta information

.tribe-block__organizer__details, .tribe-block__venue, .tribe-events-meta-group-details,.tribe-events-meta-group-organizer{

As much as I like the Events Calendar, I am looking for a calendar alternative. So far the modern events calendar is the most promising, but it has its own issues.
