really useful and lots of documentation
By ,

I really like this plugin, its high quality, is well documented, and i haven't even bought the pro version yet. I hate plugins that seriously limit the feature list unless you buy the pro version, this plugin is so useful even on the free version, there is a add on for this plugin available on the events manager website called WP full calendar which is also free.

i love this plugin author, will highly recommend the pro version when my client needs more bang.

FEATURE REQUEST: the only thing i would want is a 'cancel' button on the front-end event management so that when editing events or managing a booking you can cancel. I see this as a necessary feature because some of my clients see events manager as sort of an app, so if they want to go back they look for a cancel or return button without thinking to use the browser back button.

altho this is easily achievable by making a button at the top of each page labeled 'Cancel' that links back to the main events page. if you do this be sure to add your button and the word CONTENTS in capitals, the reason is Events manager overwrites all its pages with the plugin code. adding CONTENTS tells the plugin you want to preserve any other content on the page and to only replace the word CONTENTS.

Works well in single language
By , for WP 3.8.1

This software works well in one language. Unfortunately, I need something to work with WPML localization software. I would give it a '5' if it worked 100%.

It's fairly flexible and works right out of the box. AND, it uses WP custom post types for Events, Locations and Views, so if you're a coder that makes life a bit easier.

Fortunately, the author has added a 2nd plugin to bridge the gap between the two, so I'll give him an "A" for effort.

Great Plugin

Plugin works great, using it on custom Genesis theme. Very easy to customize widget information, etc.

Top Marks From Me! :)
By , for WP 3.8

Arguably, the best events management package out there! I used the free version and that was great. I upgraded to the Pro version so I had more payment gateways and also needed to be able to edit the booking form to collect additional details from my event delegates. The coupons facility in the Pro version is also very useful.

Top marks from me and highly recommended to all! :-)

Excellent Plugin

I have wasted time reviewing other event plugins and finally ended up with this. Events Manager is free, well supported and documented.
I love it.

Wonderful
By , for WP 3.8

Wow! This is a wonderful plugin that makes administering event bookings a breeze.

The Free version is amazing in that it is so feature-rich and customisable.

I'm also very impressed with the PRO version, which I needed to extend use of the booking forms (i.e. for greater information on individual attendees etc.).

If, like me, you are testing out a variety of event management plugins, make this your first call - it'll save a lot of wasted time looking through the others.

The documentation on the website is very good too.

Note: Because it is so comprehensive, it can take a fair while to customise it to your own requirements. But it is well worth the effort.
