Reviews

Duplicate images and no way of editing existing import schedules

While it works for the initial import of events, a bug currently exists that duplicates all the banner images from meetup. So if you have a import job on an hourly basis, in a 24 hour period on a single meetup site you’ll have 24 duplicated images. This is currently unpatched.

Also there is no way to go back in and edit an existing import schedule once created. You need to delete the job and start again, so make sure you copy all the required meetup URLs and keep them somewhere safe.

Has alot of potential but still an unfinished product.

Great Plugin – Responsive Feedback

Xylus has created a very useful and easy to use plugin. It does exactly what it says. The built-in styling isn’t robust but looks pretty good (just don’t use the shortcode in a small space – there is a widget for that!). Where it shines is all the integrations with other calendar plugins. This gives you incredible flexibility. It also works great with my Beaver Builder page builder.

What really stands out is how wonderful their support is. They are incredibly responsive and answered all my questions quickly and thoroughly. Resources on their website are also easy to understand and find what you are looking for.
