I can’t see the settings panel, where is it?

The plugin requires admin account to change the settings for this plugin. Please contact administrator.

I do not wish to display the event meta before the post content?

There is a setting in the admin panel that will remove the event details inserted before content.

Is there anyway of displaying event details within the content of the post?

Super simple events has a 4 shortcodes that can be inserted into content of post to display events details. These shortcodes are
[sse_start_date], [sse_end_date] , [sse_location], [sse_time]

I am getting 404 pages when I go to a event page, how do I fix this?

This is an issue with WordPress code and registering custom post types. The url rewrite engine doesn’t recognise the url. A work around is to go to Settings > permalinks and press save changes. Just by saving changes, it will flush the rewrite rules and events should display.
