WordPress - Adding Events Page

I have been working with Open Source PHP based CMS systems recently, WordPress and Joomla and to be frank they are NOT very user friendly, most of the simple setting require someone with programming knowledge.

The client asked for an events page. Here is how you can add it.

1. Download the events-page plugin, I used Download it and install it using wp-admin and activate the plugin after installing.

2. Then create an events.php file, instructions are there on the page, but this is what I had, a very simple one

Template Name: Events

<?php get_header(); ?>
<?php get_footer(); ?>

3. Add the events.php to your /wp-contents/theme/your-theme directory.

4. Create a new post, lets call it events, and assign it to the template call events (this will appear on right hand side under templates).

5. Done !
