Events: List on a page? No thumbnails? shortcodes?

Your events plugin is great, full of features, but I think the documentation is lacking for all those features...

1. How can I make a page where all the events will be listed nicely? Sort of like a category page?

2. With the widget, I have it on the home page, but the thumbnails are not displaying. Why?

3. Are there examples somewhere of the shortcodes in action? I need to copy/paste actual shortcodes.

Is there more documentation somewhere that I'm missing?

Thanks,
Amy
