I love WordPress. I love Genesis. I love The Events Calendar.
However, those last two don’t always play nice together.
Most of the time, it’s just a simple CSS tweak, to get a white (or other color) background behind your calendar and single event pages.
Simply add these two bits of code to your theme CSS (not the plugin CSS), and you’re usually good to go.

THANK YOU for writing this. I love genesis and after looking at many events plugins I was excited to find The Events Calendar. I was not happy that they don’t seem to work well together.
Any suggestions for how to hide the author bio on on event pages but not on the posts?
Hi Lindsay – I believe you could approach this two ways. First, you could set the CSS for event author to hidden – or perhaps the .tribe-events-event-meta. Second, you could go into the events post template and modify the PHP and comment out the the event author/meta. I’ve never tried either of these methods. You might also post this to the ECP forums and see if they have a better way.
