Is this the right calendar for me? (7 posts)

    Hi - could you please help with a prepurchase question? I want to make sure this is right for me before I buy. I have an events calendar at the moment on my site, but the latest update has broken it and I need to move to something different. I need the following features -

    - recurring event (weekly, monthly, every four Saturdays, third Saturday of each month)
    - widget on page
    - separate main page view by day (list), month (calendar view), map
    - search by location
    - import venues and events from another calendar (which can only export using the built in WordPress XML export)

    Can this plugin do that?

    Thanks!

    Everything except the import of data from your other calendar, I'm afraid.

    Thanks for your quick reply.

    Could you write an import feature by, say, tomorrow morning? :)

    Wouldn't that be nice! I wish I could, but I don't think so. If your other calendar could export as csv, I could walk you through a manual import, but from XML it's not so easy.

    well, there are plenty of online XML to CSV converters available - would that work?

    to be clear, i have a bunch of venues, and a bunch of events, both of which are XML files, which I could convert to csv if necessary. I'd need to link the two, of course.

    That's doable, though tricky. If you can convert everything to CSV files, I can give you information on how to do the import. I'm not saying it's going to be easy, however - I don't even know which calendar you're importing from, so I have no idea to what degree you're going to need to modify data formats.
