Why is this plugin in beta?

We have tested this plugin extensively on our own servers, but it’s very complex so there could be unforeseen issues we don’t know about. It’s our way of warning you of that

How do I integrate this into my theme?!

We have documentation for that! On your blog, go to Settings -> Events, then at the top, choose Documentation. If you know how to use the WordPress loop, you should be completely comfortable working with this

I really want your plugin to do ________ but it doesn’t! Please add it?
