Faultless… Dead simple to use.

I’ve been using this plugin for about 5 years now and it’s been faultless. The user interface is dead simple to learn, configure and customise. And support is first-rate. Unlike some, the plugin has moved with the times and adapted and improved and is now even better. If you’re looking for a simple calendar, look not further. This is all you need.

Superb plugin with incredible support

Absolutely superb plugin with incredable support. Have been using it for a number of years but experienced a problem last week on one of my sites and had an answer within 15 minutes of emailing their support team. It is a very easy calendar to install and works as described.
