Search - Provides searching of Zap Calendar events using Joomla's built-in search feature.
Zap Article - This is a Joomla article plugin. When linking an ZapCalendar event to an article, this plugin links the article back to the event to show date, time and location information directly within the article. It will also display any ZapCalendar event plugins that are being used.
Zap Controller - This is the plugin version of the Zap Calendar Controller. This plugin displays the category controller directly above the calendar, so it does not depend on the module positions in your template
