Our Plugin vs Their Plugin?
We get a lot of questions from people that are confused about the relationship of our Divi Events Calendar plugin to The Events Calendar plugin. We often get questions about the pro version, tickets, payments, bulk import, bulk import, addons, etc. but we have to remind people that we are not The Events Calendar, and we are not affiliated with them.
Both our Divi Events Calendar and The Events Calendar go hand-in-hand together. The Events Calendar needs to be installed first for our Divi Events Calendar to work. This is because they work together and our plugin relies on theirs.
The Events Calendar is the core of the actual event info and management. Their plugin handles anything related to the events themselves, including anything related to tickets, payments, or other addons that they offer. Our Divi Events Calendar plugin adds new custom Divi event modules to the Divi Builder.
Our plugin modules pull in the data for the events and gives you the familiar Divi module interface with all our custom settings and features you need to display and style events in any Divi Builder layout.
Without our plugin, there is no way to use The Events Calendar in Divi. In fact, they don’t even offer shortcodes in their free version, so if you use Divi, our plugin is the only solution, and it’s a good one!
Keep in mind our modules are totally separate from anything their pro version has to display events. On any given page you can either use their display, or our modules. You can’t pick and choose which parts of their plugin and which parts of our modules you want on the same page.
