    The event planner shows promise, but the table creation uses MySQL-specific data types. This won't work in installations requiring PostgreSQL.

    We don't NOT support PostgreSQL, that's a WP thing:

    It's a shame you feel that warrants a 1* score for a plugin (and that'd stand for any plugin on WP).

    It's reasonable to me to score the plugin as a "1" if it doesn't meet the users requirements - regardless of the reason. How could a user who can't run the plugin make any other evaluation?

    However, since there are not that many installations requiring an alternative database, a few ones is a good thing. Helps the Events Manager support people understand what some of their market is missing.

    If Marcus (the plugin developer) felt that this review needed to be checked by a moderator, he is (I am sure) fully aware of how to achieve this. There are no plans, at this time, to institute such a "report button" in these forums. Speaking from a purely personal perspective, I have to say where such a report button is available on every forum that I've managed, they've been nothing but a source of abuse and irritation.

    However, a poor review based upon rather shaky grounds is not a reason to "report" it. Unfortunately, that kind of review comes with the territory of making a plugin (or a theme) available to a wider community who may not understand some of the technical issues behind both WordPress and the plugin concerned. Marcus' reply is an excellent example of how to deal with such reviews in a calm & professional manner. I am sure that the plugin's other glowing reviews more than make up for this one.

    Therefore, I feel that leaving this topic open offers no benefit to the wider community and I am now closing it.
