A calendar system with many views, upcoming events widget, color-coded categories, recurrence, and import/export of .ics feeds.
This was once the best calendar plugin available. The new pricing model, module breakouts and support are terrible. The plugin is always causing problems on several site.
Do yourself a favor and keeping looking.
This calendar has a lot of very attractive functional features, which was the reason I initially installed it a couple of years ago. Early releases I found to be very buggy often breaking an installation. Especially when it came to version updates. This eventually led me to abandon the entire thing for the better part of a year. I revisited a while back installed on a test site to see if it was less buggy. Happily it appeared that they had worked many of the issues and updates seemed to go smoothly without breaking my test install. I also became a premium member to get better support. However this is where these guys really fall short. Many of those posting here have echoed support drawbacks and I would agree with them all. At this particular time I have two open tickets that are over a week old. One with no response and the other with a response that didn't solve the issue. I am more than happy to submit another review once the support issues get worked out, but at this time I cannot give this plug-in any more than a 3 star rating. To be fair I have at times received excellent reply in the forums from one of their super users but this has been the exception.
I tried quite a number of calendar plugins and I think this was the best. It is not over the top if you just want a simple calendar well displayed. It has recurring events (in my opinion that is essential) and the evnts are very easy to add. The theme options customisation is bit tricky to use as it is not always obvious what you are changing but it looks good with the defaults.
I had a small issue with the plugin, so I asked the support team for help. The plugin author was quick to respond and resolve it. Now everything works perfectly fine for me. Both me and the client are happy.
I'ts easy to cinfigure and use.
And even if there is any problem, they have a good support.
Thats one more problem.
More problems than solutions
Setup was no trouble, adding events was simple, and the documentation was really helpful to get me through the process which could have been a little tricky otherwise. The calendar is definitely more fully featured than the others I have seen. It is not as light as some of the simple calendars but I don't have a $4/month hosting package so my site handles it easily. With over 100,000 free users, the support forums don't appear to have the fastest response time but they seem to make up for it by addressing the issue pretty deeply. For anyone who has a solid theme and plugin set, and doesn't use the absolutely cheapest web hosting package you can find, I think the plugin will exceed expectations. On cheaper hosting packages (let's face it, some websites don't need less restrictive hosting packages), it can be embedded via a widget to significantly reduce hosting resources needed.
I`m very happy with this plugin!
