Reviews

WD calendar is great

When I start using this great Calendar by WD I saw a problem, when I asked for help they did a great job. And they help my very fast. They solved the problem and every thing I now working great.

Stopped Working

This calendar is good enough for my needs and has been working well since download over a year ago. Within the last month the calendar no longer displays events. The calendar is there but no events. Support suggests changing themes but I don’t want to risk losing other data. I will have to delete and replace Spider with another calendar I suppose.

Great Support!

I had a question about changing the font color of the Previous and Next buttons on the header of the calendar. Edita Nazaryan responded quickly to my on-line request and sent me the css code I needed. The code worked perfectly!! Thank you! I love this product and your customer support is excellent!

Easy to use and excellent support

This calendar does everything that I need. I had an issue with it a while ago and the support was excellent. They sorted out the problem very quickly and I have had no further issues with using the calendar since.

Easy to use and great service

The Spider Calendar is the only free calendar I could find that allowed for recurring events. It’s been very user-friendly and easy to implement on my site. When I had a minor bug crop up, Web-Dorado was very helpful and responsive, and fixed my issue before I’d even realized it.
