Front-End Buddypress help for Events+

I am setting up Events+ for use with my Buddypress groups. My questions concerning the front-end are…

1) Can I change it from military time?
2) Can I remove five of the boxes: Add Media, Insert Shortcode, Visual, Text and Paid Event?

AND, when I put in a test event it is not working at all. I click on “Publish” and nothing happens. I though maybe there was a plugin conflict, but the one I suspected and deactivated did not make Events+ work.

Thanks for your help
