Events+

Hello. Is there a way to place an Add Event button on the homepage of a site for users who are both registered and guests? Is there any way to make the button a widget instead of having it at the very top toolbar? I'm using Blogs MU and Events+ and I just cannot seem to get an Add Event button to appear in the sidebar of the homepage. It stays at the top in the admin bar which is not what I want.

I also need to add a search event widget on the homepage as well. Can that be done with Blogs MU and Events+? I want the search widget to look like the one on this page - http://templatic.com/demos/events2/

Please suggest a theme or plugin that will allow me to add the functions listed above.

Thanks for your help.
