The Events Calendar

    This is the best calendar suite out there. I run a small site for an association with 300 members. Here's what we've tried, and why we ended up with Events Calendar Pro:

    We used Time.ly All-in-one event calendar ... which slowed down the site and was buggy, and had plugin conflicts. The default install also confuses google crawls. Also very poor support on their forum. They can't even update you on what is going on... for example 'they are working on Time.ly version 2.0' and 'we'll keep you updated' ... no updates in the last 5 months on that blog post. Zero credibility. Their plugin also crashed our entire site back in August as part of an automatic upgrade. This happened to many other people too. Time.ly's response was to DELETE the forum postings from users. Timely use their own forum for a reason ... to maintain editorial control.

    We tried IgniteWoo Events Calendar & Ticketing ... which is very basic and costly. IgniteWoo are not too quick on providing support either, but were better than timely.

    Events Calendar + PRO may cost a few $$, but well worth it. The team at Modern tribe have been quick to respond to queries. What's most important is that it actually works. The WooTickets module is great too - because it works!

    Man, this is an awesome review loaded with helpful information...thanks so much for taking the time to write it, joelbaby. The fact that you found our plugin to be a worthwhile solution after struggling with some of the others out there is fantastic feedback, and the type of comment that validates the work we're doing from day to day here. We are equally glad to hear that you had a positive experience with the premium releases and with our support team there. I shared this with the team and everyone was pumped to read it.

    Thank you, on behalf of us all, for sharing your experience here. We're glad to hear that you've found a plugin that meets your needs...and if there's ever anything we can do to improve it's value, please let us know. We built this for people like you and want the roadmap to reflect your needs.
