A calendar system with month, week, day, agenda views; upcoming events widget, color-coded categories, recurrence, and import/export of .ics feeds.
This is a warning to anyone thinking of getting this or the paid version - IT IS ABSOLUTE GARBAGE. This plugin has been the bane of my existence for several months now. It may look tempting because it has reasonable features, but it will inevitably lead to site instability and crashing. It's also a memory hog. The developers are criminals for charging the price they do for the pro version and providing such a subpar, unstable, worthless piece of trash. Have tried it with multiple wordpress installations, multiple wordpress versions - every time = failure. Absolutely fed up with it. Thought I'd leave my 2 cents here so that these crooks don't con some other poor soul into using their malware.
I've tried this plugin on a couple of different sites because of the features. It leads to problems every time.
Tried uploading events and it changed all the dates. Support response was non-existent.
Latest installation has led to site instability.
This product promises to be the best Calendar ever.
If it only worked... it's only been around for a year, so perhaps in another year it will be usable.
One of the biggest problems is that the tutorials and training to learn how to use the plugin are online and must be used through their website... but, their website is continually going offline (probably due to high demand).
I spent over 3 hours today attempting to post in their forum - never got my question posted... plan to wait/refresh over and over for every page... maybe an average of 5 minutes to open a single page... viewing anything on their site.
After a week of trying to use their plugin I've spent perhaps 10 hours and still don't have it working in basic modes correctly... much less trying to integrate with Facebook... but, having a downloaded manually might have remedied most of the problems - ie, i simply can't find answers to basic questions because their site keeps dropping.
Glaring omissions or problems:
a) Calendar in RH Sidebar widget. Every other Calendar plugin has the ability to put a small Calendar in the sidebar, but I can’t find anything to do this… I see the Upcoming Events widget and that’s it. Is it there and I’m just missing it?
b) Upcoming Events Widget – it’s very pretty and functional, but takes a HUGE amount of real estate on the screen. Is there a way to slim this down? Each entry consumes 110 pixels in height… compared to other calendars where a 2 line text entry consumes only 40 pixels.
c) Named Locations – currently it appears I must manually enter all of the location data over and over for each event. Seems there should be a way to enter a ‘venue’ or location.
d) No examples of the PRO version... would be nice to see a screenshot of the FRONT-END EVENT CREATION.
e) On the Calendar page there’s an area at the top with 2 drop downlists – nothing happens when I clicke these… can’t figure out how to get any functionality going… I changed the Posterboard to Monthly, so those customizations were easy to find, but how do I make all of them available? Btw – I could not get Posterboard to display anything at all… don’t know what this view looks like.
Will come back and take another look in 6 months.

- Calendar view options not working in iOS
- No reply on pre-purchase questions
- Resulted system instability
- Needed to reset complete site (files & dbase)
Looked really fantastic and has many features, but resulted in too high risk for providing stable customer experience.
Awesome and works well.
The calendar exactly work.
Tried a lot calendar plugins. This is the best.
Having used this plugin for 7 months or so, my only advice would be to run & hide!
It seems more bugs are introduced with each version, the developers appear to choose adding new functionality rather than fix outstanding bugs.
IMHO, one of the worst written plugins I've ever had the misfortune to debug/fix and the support is laughable.
Additionally, it does not clean up properly when uninstalled.
Do yourself a favour & find another solution for your calendar requirements.
Hard to install, had to clean up through ftp before the update worked.
Big issued with ics link from Google - bad Feed ID....
But the ics works fint with other tools and plugins.
