How to properly display an event listing in Events +

I’ve installed the Events + plugin hoping to replace my current calendar plugin. I’m having some trouble understanding how to display the calendar.

On my temporary testing site ( I’ve created a page called calendar 2 ( and added the shortcode [eab_calendar]. This displays a month calendar for the current month with no way to move to the next month. Also, I would like to display a list of upcoming events as is shown in the image example for the plugin.

I’ve tried the template overrides but they have no effect.

I’m sure I’m missing something very basic. Any help would be appreciated.
