Adds some meta-data to posts to convert them into full calendar events.
Each event can be exported into ical(.ics), outlook(vcs), or Google Calendar.
Geolocation works thanks to openstreetmap.

It can also fetch the weather, but doesn’t bring the sun 🙂

Is the plugin free ?

Yes, and it uses only open-sources : openstreetmap, openlayer, jquery

How do I enable weather feature ?

Weather feature uses api.

You have to create an account and generate an API key at

I have no interest in, I personally use the free plan.

Is there any limitation for the weather feature ? provides a free plan limited to 60 requests per minute.

You can also subscribe to paid plan, I don’t care.

Event Post – TOP!! Excellent plugin that fits into Wordpress. Many thanks to the developers – it is used with enthusiasm on websites.

I was looking for a simple solution to post and archive events that were previously only on Facebook. Thanks to this plugin, it was easy to do. Thanks for your work so far

Thanks for a simple, light, easy plugin. I didn’t want a full event calendar for this project, and this is ideal. I would suggest simpler documentation for non-devs (like a dedicated admin page with settings, docs etc), and ability to control layout/css in shortcode a bit more, how to add weather, but overall an awesome and light plugin for folks who know some coding. Thanks.

Voilà une extension bien pensée ! Simple, fonctionnelle et conviviale. Fait ce qu’elle doit faire, avec simplicité et, au besoin, une certaine sophistication quand même ! Bravo et merci !Ne fonctionne pas avec le thème Impreza (widget Calendrier et shortcode).

I’ve found this addon as the only one so far (at least I think so) that embeds the event functionality to default WP posts, instead of creating it’s own taxonomies. That allows events to be handled by plenty of other WP addons that don’t recognize custom taxonomies (such as sliders, post grids etc.). Right now I have only one problem – days initials in calendar table aren’t translatable, but I hope I will find a workaround. I also suggested a lot of string translations to Croatian here in translate.wordpress and I hope to to do a lot more. I hope you’ll continue development of this addon. 🙂
