How to create a calendar in an OpenLab course site (with the Events Plugin)

1) dashboard > plugins > events manager > activate.

2) dashboard > events > settings > pages > event list/archives > [Display calendar in events page? choose yes] > save changes.

3) dashboard > pages > events > quick edit > [change title to “calendar”] (optional, but oh-so-awesome, idea from one of Gina’s sites).

7) Behold your shiny new calendar:
