Help installing event calendar widget in sidebar
 
Hello everyone!

Can anyone offer me some help installing this widget in my right hand sidebar please?

http://wpcal.firetree.net/installation/

I have ran through the installation, however it does not appear in the available widgets menu. I assume I need to do the task where it says:

Quote:

4. Add the Event Calendar or Upcoming Events list to your sidebar.

If you use the WordPress Widgets, then the Event Calendar is available as an easy to install widget. In order to use it you must first activate the “Event Calendar Widget” plugin.

If you use the K2 template then the Event Calendar is available as a sidebar module.

Otherwise, you need to make a small adition to your template. Add the following code to your sidebar.php:

Event Calendar:
<li>
<?php ec3_get_calendar(); ?>
</li>

Upcoming Events:
<li>Events
<?php ec3_get_events(5); ?>
</li>

If you are using an older template, then you should check that your HTML header contains the following tag: <?php wp_head(); ?>

Caution: The Event Calendar must be unique. If you try to show more than one calendar on a page, then only the first will be displayed.

But I am a bit lost as to where this needs to go.

Any ideas?

It looks like when you install event calendar, there are two items that show up in the Plugins: Event Calendar and Event Calendar Widget. You need to activate both and then you can go to Appearances -> Widgets and add it to your sidebar.
