Don't use page templates, modify post_content
The Plugin currently uses custom page templates in /public to render and display the event archives and single views. In the future this may lead to more and more conflicts with themes, especially those with page builder capabilites.
A possible solution would be that the templates are not "touched" instead the post_content gets modified via the correspondind wordpress hooks.
However this should not be a replacement but an additional choice.
Maybe we could also modify the publish date to the start-date (as displayed by the theme in the frontend). This could maybe integrate well in existing themes, because the start date is probably the most important meta-information.
Deleting a branch is permanent. It CANNOT be undone. Continue?
