OK but the dates aren't right
By ,

The dates shown with the short-codes are not from Today forward, it includes a couple days backwards.

Great — but unfortunately no support
By , for WP 3.9.1

This really is a wonderful calendar/event solution. If it works (meaning: no conflicts with other plugins) it can be a helpful feature for a website.

If one has problems with the plugin it is bettter to switch to another solution, as there is no support available.

Looks like it will do the job
By , for WP 3.5.1

Definitely works on 3.5.1, no problems at all. I don't see any of the problems with the little "event load" msg that another reviewer mentions.

I'd like to see an even smaller mini calendar, though. It could be shrunk down, I guess I'm going to have to restyle it, but still it seems to be what I'm looking for and it's easy to use for the end-user. Haven't used it long enough to give it more than 3 stars. Wouldn't surprise me if there are nested divs within tables within divs.

Good job, saves me from bothering with any other calendar plugins.

more customizations
By , for WP 3.5.1

Would like the ability to add more customizations to better fit my site. Functionality is good though; just couldn't get it to "feel" right on my page.

Decent functionality, horrible layout
By ,

In my opinion, it would have been an excellent plugin, if not for its layout, which is a table-div-inline-CSS hell.

To give you just one example, in order to separate a couple of buttons by 5 px, the author placed them in a table, put a div between them, and set the width of that div to 5px, instead of just using a margin. There are divs within spans within divs within table cells within divs all over the place.

And you better make sure you have enough Timezones, and your "magic quotes" disabled, otherwise the plugin will remind you of your shortcomings on every page of your admin panel (!) with huge banners, that will push your useful content half the browser window height down, until you find the way to disable them.

There are some glitches, for example, jGrowl pop-ups "Loading events... " sometimes just remain there after the events has loaded (I had to set the opacity to 0 for the entire container div, to hide the damn thing completely).

All that said, I'd like to confirm that the plugin offers decent functionality with lots of options. If not for its layout, I'd probably rate it five stars.

Need Social Share Capabilities & iPhone View
By , for WP 3.5

I like the simplicity and clean overall look. I would give it 5 stars if it had social share capability for each event and if it was more iPhone friendly. Right now you cannot view all event details on an iPhone.
