Reoccurring events under developed
By , for WP 3.8.1

You can’t make an event that reoccurs on the second Monday of each month. This calendar plugin would be ready for prime time if you could do that. Until then I’m forced to use Google Calendar.

Clumsy interface
By , for WP 3.6.1

I tried this plugin and immediately uninstalled it. First of all, the pop-up form to enter events didn't display correctly in my browser (Firefox). In order to get to the bottom of the form I had to both disable the footer in my browser and hide the Windows toolbar.

In addition, there's not possibility to edit a single event that is part of a repeat series, i.e. you cannot for example take one event out of a series or change the venue without affecting the entire series.

Not ready for prime time
By , for WP 3.5.1

This calendar looked great at first. The visual design is really good, both on the website and dashboard. However, lacking function and code bugs prevented us from using it. First, the repeat function does not allow monthly on the first occurrence of a particular day (e.g. - 3rd Monday every month), which leaves it terribly lacking. The upcoming events widget does not work correctly with repeating events “outweighing” single events, which don’t display at all. Printing the calendar is difficult at best, having to create a custom print css and/or shrinking the size to < 50% in the browser (both Firefox and IE). Display with a “mobile ready” theme on a mobile phone results in the right half of the calendar truncated and no way the user can scroll right to see it.

I do actually think this plugin has “potential”, with a Dashboard event interface that is unrivaled. If the developer would fix the problems listed above, I would give it a 5. But it is far from ready for a prime time website now. Furthermore, the developer is an individual who does not seem to have the time to resolve these issues, many of which were reported years ago (do a search to see for yourself). We gave up on this calendar and went with All In One Event Calendar, which is better in many ways, has all the function we need, is not buggy like Ajax Event Calendar and has much better support from the developers.

Recurring event feature useless
By , for WP 3.5.1

Module looked promising but not being able to do 1st Thursday of the money or 2nd Wednesday of the month is a show stopper for me. I have to continue to look elsewhere.

Simply buggy plugin
By ,

this plugin imposes to select a city code to work properly. Howerver my wordpress does not allow me to select a city code, only time zone is allowed.

It would be better to allow the user to select a desired language instead of city code.
