Tangles Events

Description

The plugin connects to your existing Tangles Events community (https://www.tanglesevents.com/) to retrieve current and upcoming events and displays them in a simple paginated calendar view as a WordPress widget or a WordPress Gutenberg block. You control which events are included in the calendar from within your Tangles Events account.

Events are created and managed within the Tangles Events site (https://www.tanglesevents.com/). This plugin allows you to incorporate a public view of those events directly in the context of your WordPress site. You can also create and manage your Tangles Events community events via the Tangles Events mobile app.

The information used to create the calendar view using this plugin is kept in your Tangles Events community and is not replicated to the WordPress database
