  • TLDR: It’s good out of the box, but for advanced needs, it’s just difficult to use for customizing, even as a developer. Not planning to use again.

    I have tried both the free and pro version. It is a nightmare to customize. Documentation is awful or disorganized — it’s basically just a bunch of answered questions they bookmark to serve as “official documentation.” I am a WP developer, yet my time customizing how the views are is so difficult. When I try to look at the custom developer functions, it’s not even on 1 page — it’s paginated so I have to keep clicking the next page… why not just put it all on one page so I can see them all and search???? Their archive view is quite awful and has this awkward date picker that chooses one date you want items to be from. FOr my last project, I actually made an event module myself and it outputs events by months, years… Good thing is is does account for location, event organizer, registration URL. Not well thought out beyond that.
