C’mon now. This is awesome

This plugin may not have 300,000+ downloads (yet), but don’t be discouraged by that. I’ve tried a bunch of calendar plugins (boring junk I must say). This plugin has many way cool features; display calendar as a slider, weekly view, monthly view (cool freakin views).

It takes a bland calendar post and displays it in a sophisticated way. Very happy I gave it a try.

Real great !!!!

best top: Modern Events Calendar (5 stars)
Good: The Events Calendar (3 stars)
Little: All-in-One Event Calendar (2.5 stars)

I rarely rate anything but I’ve been searching for a quality calendar plugin like this for a year. And so far, the support is great. Easy to use, elegant and tons of functionality. Thanks!~

The most flexible event plugin out there.
