Create and maintain events, including complex reoccurring patterns, venue management (with Google maps), calendars and customisable event lists
For me, this plugin is almost perfect. It is feature-rich, and provides all the functionality my client needs to post their events on their website. Importantly, it does not drown my client in endless functions that they don't want or need. Elegant. Clean. And it has an API to help with template optimisation. If it doesn't work straight 'out of the box' with your template, the author has provided the tools for you to fix it. Great approach. Thanks, Stephen.
All category links lead to a "Nothing found" page :(
Also, please don't disable page template widget on edit event - I want to use a particular page template for my events (full width) but I can't.
Otherwise, it's a great plugin!
This is not a review, but a note. This was a review but I can't delete it so I'm changing the content of the message
The two plugins (this + Ozh' Admin Drop Down Menu) have a conflict.
Trying to edit venues caused WordPress to crash. I couldn't track down the problem, as it gets too deep into the internals of WordPress. For now I'll live without Ozh, as Event Organiser is more important to the site.
I'm looking forward to setting up Event Organiser. The work I've done so far shows it's got great potential, and will site my needs very well.
After spending hours trawling through the internet for a WordPress Calendar / Event Organizer plugin, my eyes settled on this.
From screenshots it looked quite good and using the demo, it certainly gave me relief that I had found a plugin that I could use.
Installation was moderately easy. Any troubles I had were resolved by good support from the plugin author.
However after two days my eyes lighted on another calendar plugin. Although I enjoyed using this, the aesthetics compared to my new found plugin were not as good. I would say that is the only thing to be improved.
But while I write this review, I still ponder on whether to continue using this plugin or the other one I found.
one of if not the best events plugin for wp ive come across, only issue is the dev needs to make it an option to use individual templates for the plugin in its files rather than all or none of the plugins templates this would make it more compatible with frameworks and not just common themes
Also he needs to re think pricing and membership for pro and addons
But aprt from that i would recommend giving it a whirl.
Event Organiser Calendar its a great plugin. THX.
This plugin provides the best customizability among other major event plugins such as Events Manager, The Event Calendar, and All-in-One Event Calendar. The more you know WP, the more you can enjoy the plugin.
Otoh, there's theme incompatibility. For example, Volt Magazine theme and the plugin don't work nice each other. Theme customization was required, but volt magazine template was a bit complex.
If you want to customize, this is the best.
If you just want to enable event calendars, use others.
