Works up to WP 3.7.1, but has bugs
By , for WP 3.8.1

I like this calendar and have it installed on a couple of client sites. But, the current version is not compatible with WP3.8.1. I also found a curious bug with it last week: when an event is created for one of the last few days of a long month (beyond 4 weeks), the plug-in places it in the first week of the month. I tried to contact support and their site was not working correctly. None of these things are good signs, and I'll be looking for a replacement plug-in.

Promising but Ultimately Flawed
By , for WP 3.8.1

All in one events Calendar has seen it's fare share of bugs. Despite this, the plugin actually has a lot of excellent features in functionality. The problem is that you cannot trust the plugin. I've had it take down several sites with various updates that seem rushed and riddled with bugs.

I've decided to throw in the towel with this plugin. To fill the void Modern Tribe's The Events Calendar has performed very well for me.

I used to love this calendar
By , for WP 3.8.1

As the title suggests I used to love this calendar, it fitted my site perfectly. It is probably the best looking calendar out there. Easy to use etc.
Unfortunately for Timely wordpress has updated several times over the last 6 months and it has not kept up with all the changes. Now it constantly crashes my site and I have had enough.

I'd like to love it
By , for WP 3.8

I really would LOVE to love this plugin.
All I wanted was a way to display one of my icloud calendars to the web. Sorry, but I don't like company rivalry screwing up my life. Apple and Google have done that. Google quit the sync program and Apple can't seem to understand that people have lives outside Apple.
Anyway, the ics link doesn't import. It says no events found.
Google to All in One worked.
I tried to sync icloud calendar to google calendar, and got a txt crawler error.
I tried to sync icloud calendar to yahoo calendar, and it worked perfectly.
So I synced yahoo with google and my icloud events were missing. Like they won't allow a sync of a sync.
I synced yahoo with all in one and the same problem. I see directly placed yahoo and google events, but not the icloud calendar events.
I tried changing the webcal to https and it didn't work either.

I love the look and feel of this plugin. But if it won't work with icloud, then it's not a good option for me.
I don't understand the problem either.
Other calendars, which I don't like, can do this just fine.
Localendar works fine
AMR ical works fine
Calpress works okay except the times are off by 8 hours, like it doesn't parse the time zone properly.

Come on all in one! Get icloud calendar feed to work and you'll have a great plugin!

Setting pane not displaying after upgrade from Lite to Standard

Setting pane not displaying after upgrade from Lite to Standard 1.10.9.

Though, all seemed to work fine before the upgrade

Not ready for prime-time
By , for WP 3.7.1

This product promises to be the best Calendar ever.

If it only worked... it's only been around for a year, so perhaps in another year it will be usable.

One of the biggest problems is that the tutorials and training to learn how to use the plugin are online and must be used through their website... but, their website is continually going offline (probably due to high demand).

I spent over 3 hours today attempting to post in their forum - never got my question posted... plan to wait/refresh over and over for every page... maybe an average of 5 minutes to open a single page... viewing anything on their site.

After a week of trying to use their plugin I've spent perhaps 10 hours and still don't have it working in basic modes correctly... much less trying to integrate with Facebook... but, having a downloaded manually might have remedied most of the problems - ie, i simply can't find answers to basic questions because their site keeps dropping.

Glaring omissions or problems:
a) Calendar in RH Sidebar widget. Every other Calendar plugin has the ability to put a small Calendar in the sidebar, but I can’t find anything to do this… I see the Upcoming Events widget and that’s it. Is it there and I’m just missing it?

b) Upcoming Events Widget – it’s very pretty and functional, but takes a HUGE amount of real estate on the screen. Is there a way to slim this down? Each entry consumes 110 pixels in height… compared to other calendars where a 2 line text entry consumes only 40 pixels.

c) Named Locations – currently it appears I must manually enter all of the location data over and over for each event. Seems there should be a way to enter a ‘venue’ or location.

d) No examples of the PRO version... would be nice to see a screenshot of the FRONT-END EVENT CREATION.

e) On the Calendar page there’s an area at the top with 2 drop downlists – nothing happens when I clicke these… can’t figure out how to get any functionality going… I changed the Posterboard to Monthly, so those customizations were easy to find, but how do I make all of them available? Btw – I could not get Posterboard to display anything at all… don’t know what this view looks like.

Will come back and take another look in 6 months.

Completely Crashed with WordPress 3.7
By , for WP 3.7

At the same time WP upgraded to 3.7, AI1EC also upgraded and here's the result of my web sites that are using it:

Fatal error: Uncaught exception 'Ai1ec_File_Not_Found' with message 'The specified file 'event.min.js' doesn't exist.' in /home/healinsp/healinginspirations-wi/wp-content/plugins/all-in-one-event-calendar/app/helper/class-ai1ec-view-helper.php:124 Stack trace: #0 /home/healinsp/healinginspirations-wi/wp-content/plugins/all-in-one-event-calendar/app/controller/class-ai1ec-events-controller.php(200): Ai1ec_View_Helper->theme_enqueue_script('ai1ec-event', 'event.min.js', Array) #1 [internal function]: Ai1ec_Events_Controller->init('') #2 /home/healinsp/healinginspirations-wi/wp-includes/plugin.php(429): call_user_func_array(Array, Array) #3 /home/healinsp/healinginspirations-wi/wp-settings.php(340): do_action('init') #4 /home/healinsp/healinginspirations-wi/wp-config.php(96): require_once('/home/healinsp/...') #5 /home/healinsp/healinginspirations-wi/wp-load.php(29): require_once('/home/healinsp/...') #6 /home/healinsp/healinginspirations-wi/wp-blog-header.php(12): require_once('/home/healinsp/...') #7 /home/healinsp/healing in /home/healinsp/healinginspirations-wi/wp-content/plugins/all-in-one-event-calendar/app/helper/class-ai1ec-view-helper.php on line 124

Latest version does not work well
By ,

Poorly executed update I think. Buttons doe not work, cannot switch views, and support is non-responsive. Which, for me, really is the weakest point.

Crons gone crazy
By , for WP 3.5.2

I'm not a WP expert by any means. But for some reason, I started noticing that I had
?doing_wp_cronxxxxxxxxxx appended to every URL on my site. I couldn't figure it out.

Other posts stated it was BackupBuddy causing the problem but I don't have that plugin. I proceeded to deactivate every backup and security plugin to no avail. Finally I deactivated this and the URL craziness has now stopped. Won't be using this plugin again.

When it worked it worked fine...the reason for the 2 stars instead of 1 or 0. But for some reason, it started doing this. So no way am I using it any more. :(

Used to work - but then...
By , for WP 3.5.1

I would have given this 5 starts but then I updated to version 1.9 All the timings on repeating events (apart from the first one) showed the wrong time). I had to go back to version 1.8.2 to get a working version. Main grouse is that although I posted this as a problem I haven't so far had any response...
