WP Meetup fetches event information from Meetup.com and creates posts for each event.
This is a fine plug-in and will be even better when the fonts used by the calendar widget are made adjustable.
Widget ui looks great, great options as well but broke my existing WP SES plugin. I had deactivate WP Meetup as contact email was more important to my site.
I'm very impressed by the makers of this plugin. Not only have they built an effective and easy-to-use solution to integrating MeetUp and WordPress, but even when the MeetUp site itself throws a curve their way, like disruptive DDOS attack, the developers are quick to react and update their plugin, while also helping users troubleshoot in a prompt and efficient fashion. As a freelancer myself I know how difficult it can be to put out every fire that comes your way, but these guys have it down to a science.
UPDATED 6/5/2014: This is still a great plugin and getting better all the time (and still rough around the edges). I find that some extra styling is needed to make it look neat. And if you already have the plugin - be sure to write down your group colors before upgrading! When I upgraded to ver 2.2.5 from ver 2.1.? (only 3 months later), my colors were lost when I upgraded. Thankfully I opened my calendar page before upgrading so was able to scrape my previous colors off that page. You can see the plugin in action on my site here: http://www.amandagiles.com/wordpress-meetups/
Previous I had reported some minor issues with the plugin, the most noticeable of which was that it uses the URL of the Meetup.com group was displaying instead of displaying the actual group name. That has been fixed.
Ran into an issue where the calendar would go blank for a few hours after updating any aspect of my WordPress site. Developer worked extremely hard and got the problem fixed by working very closely with me to figure out what was going on. Plugin works better than ever now. EXTREMELY responsive developer.
Great plugin, allows non meetup folks to become aware of your meetup.
The developers have been very responsive. I had an issue with the new version of the plugin, they added a feature for me right away and gave me access to it before it was released in the next version.
Thanks for the fast turn-around.
The new option to have the links point to meetup.com is useful so thanks for adding this.
I've already posted my comments on this. I'm giving it a single star because it was a great simple plugin that worked fine until the last update in 01/2014 essentially broke it and stopped it from working. Many people reported that the plugin no longer works for them, so I'm not imagining things. I either have to spend several hours re-coding it or copy and paste an event calendar from EventBrite or find another plugin that works.
First, stop putting your admin notice spam at the top just because we don't want to advertise your plugin for you.
Secondly, the "upcoming events" widget doesn't display the "next x events" it only displays the next events in the current month. We only have 2 events a month and then it "appears" that we have no more events planned. I'd love to see this (and the previous) fixed so I can up my star rating.
