No Mobile Compatibility
By , for WP 3.8.1

Get with the times. This plug in is not usable with a mobile device without major work. Also, whoever wrote the style sheet uses !important every 3rd line it seems, making styling for this mess a royal pain in the neck.

Full of bugs; atrocious support
By , for WP 3.8.1

I purchased the Developer's version last year, and I've contacted support since OCTOBER of 2013 about how the recurring events was broken. I have an event that occurs on the 1st Friday of every month and ends at 12:30am on Saturday and another that occurs on the 3rd Friday of every month and ends at 12:30am on Saturday. Both those events, since October, have been okay for the first instance, but repeat on the 1st and 3rd THURSDAYS instead. Gave them my backend login and FTP, and I would have to HOUND THEM for updates every few weeks - they would not take initiative to check on something until I asked, and then they would respond within the hour, as if they had simply "forgotten" about open tickets.

Twice after I'd hounded them, they sent me "updates" to the plugin and asked me to check. Are they incapable of opening up a browser on their own to check if the fixes worked? Twice these did nothing. This last time, they claimed to have "fixed" it again by changing the timezone of both my plugin and on WordPress to London - which caused all my events to now show as starting at 3:30am and 4:30am! Of course, they again asked me to check to see if it was fixed rather than loading up the page and seeing all my messed up events in the middle of a registration drive.

Freaking brilliant, this lot. Over and over again I've said, if you can't fix things in a timely manner (and 5 months for the same bug is not timely) that the previous calendar plugin I'd used (All-in-One Event Calendar) could do without issue, then they should refund me. Nope, they just keep beating around the bush. I'm done with this. I'm going to see if I can get my credit card company is willing to reverse the wasted $79 I paid for this POS.

Almost works
By , for WP 3.8

icloud calendar feed yeilds a time difference.
For instance, my event at 10am, shows at 2am on the calpress calendar, and I have it set for Central Time, just as my icloud and wordpress show.
Perhaps I have to trick it by setting calpress to a different time zone, but I don't want to. It works fine with Localendar and AMR ical, so why not with this?
Also, I hate that there is ZERO support from developers on their free version. Really guys, you can't run any business these days, especially a software development company, and not support your work. It helps you, FOR FREE, to make a better product. It's like having thousands of beta testers for free. Support calpress free and fix the time delay on icloud feeds, and you might just have the best wordpress calendar out there.

Thanks to the developers!

Monthly Calendar Dates Wrong
By , for WP 3.7.1

I'd likely give this calendar plugin a 4 or 5 star rating if not for the fact that the monthly calendar dates are a day off and after a web search it looks like its been off since June with no updates to fix it. Bummer. I like it.

don;t buy
By ,

this plugin gave me loads of head-aches. Actually the only plugin I ever paid for, because it seemed worth the money, but didn;t get it to work as advertised..

Maybe because of multiple site setup; mostly because the activation just sucked...

Hooray
By , for WP 3.7.1

finally, after trying 5 similar plugins, an events calender that actually works as it says! All I had to do was create the category, select the page for the calender and post the event. Just like in Heaven.

Awesome plugin!
By , for WP 3.6.1

I love this plugin. I've only been using it for about an hour and it's fantastic. I had been using Time.ly's All in One Calendar for a long time but their update kept failing and crashing. Since they removed their plugin from wordpress, I removed their plugin from my site.

Time to move on. CalPress works like a charm out of the box. I spent an hour or so customizing the CSS and creating some child pseudo classes but it was a breeze. Best part is that this plugin imported events without me telling it too AND event categories! Love it.

The only thing keeping me from giving it 5 stars is the calendar view (when using it on a page with a sidebar) cuts off the bottom of a long event description and there's no scrollbar appearing. It also strips out html (a href) tags out of the description too. Wish it didn't but still a great plugin.

I recommend it!

Good but has major drawbacks
By , for WP 3.6.1

My initial reaction was very positive as the plugin is easy to set up and use and has lots going for it.

However, and it's a BIG however, it really slows down the entire site and doesn't appear to work in IE.

OK, so we know IE is a piece of old junk, but there are millions of users out there still using it.
