How it works

Event Calendar Newsletter automatically pulls event details from the WordPress event calendar plugin you have installed on your site and generates a newsletter-friendly layout based on the specific event details you want to include.

If you have a WordPress event calendar installed on your website, you can begin using Event Calendar Newsletter right away. If you don’t have a WordPress event calendar, install one! You can use one of five free plugins (see below, more in Pro). You’ll just need to install the Event Calendar Newsletter plugin and follow the instructions on setting up an event calendar in WordPress.

  • The Events Calendar by StellarWP (formerly by Modern Tribe)
  • Event Organiser
  • Events Manager
  • Simple Calendar (aka Google Calendar Events)

Events Calendar Newsletter Pro supports all of the above-mentioned event calendars in addition to:

  • Modern Events Calendar
  • Event Espresso
  • EventON
  • Church Content (with a supported theme)
  • Geodirectory Events
  • Calendarize it!
  • Eventum (by Templatic)
  • EventPrime

They quickly added support for EventPrime calendar when I requested it. This has allowed me to automate my weekly e-newsletter which now has 15 variations that users can select based on content and delivery frequency. I use this plugin to automatically select and format ads and events listings, which are then sent using the Newsletter Plugin to schedule the automatic sending. This plugin is powerful, but easy to use and works as expected and described.

I have been using The Events Calendar Pro plugin for about a year and I was hesitating on adding a Newsletter feature because I was unsure of the capabilities of the Event Calendar Newsletter plugin. Once I dug into it I was very surprised by just how much customization I could do with the plugin. This is a great plugin and I will soon be upgrading to the Pro version so I can automated my newsletters through MailChimp. Also, the support I received while I was evaluating the free version was better than a lot of the paid support I get from other plugins. Great plugin and great support!

I have Events Manager for WordPress and am looking to automate parts of my newsletter. The free version is nice, but doesn’t do anything I can’t do with a shortcode. I already have draft posts that generate content for my weekly email using shortcodes that I copy and paste from. I was looking for a solution to an automated daily newsletter that includes: 1 – Today’s events from my calendar 2 – Recent Posts 3 – Future Featured Events I am able to use my site’s main RSS feed for #2 and have the events manager RSS set for #1. I’ve been doing #3 manually which is what I was hoping to use this plugin for. I’ll keep looking for a free automation solution.
