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...

Works but should really focus on best practice
By , for WP 3.5.1

Works, but doesn't follow WordPress conventions and best practice in several places, e.g. with the theme system (themes for this plugin must go into wp-content/ and are overwritten on update). Also, there's still no custom permalinks support!

very slow
By ,

still performance problem. plugin loads lots of scripts and slow down page.
functionality is great, but author should improve loading speed. sometimes simpler is better

Gorgeous but...
By ,

It looks so good - I even managed to hook the calendar up with a events on Facebook. Then I noticed that the times were wrong - they had been changed by All-in-One Event Calendar. I had to set them manually. Then a post disappeared from the shown event list.
I really like everything about this calendar - but I really need one that I can trust. So - back to checking out plug ins. Sigh.

Huge load times
By , for WP 3.5.1

I love this plugin's features, but it is imposing huge performance overhead on my site (a neighborhood community site). Disabling the All-In-One plugin improved load times from an average of 16 seconds to an average of 5 seconds (still too long -- but load times of 15+ seconds are unacceptable!).

I tried saving the calendar theme options as recommended in one post -- no change. I tried checking the "skip the loop check" option -- no change.

I don't have any more time to waste on this. Looking for another calendar plugin now. Bummer!

Not compatible with ie8
By , for WP 3.4.2

Warning: 1 in 10 users of your site, users who still use IE8, will not be able to use the event calendar on your site.

In the theme I use for my site, views_base, the IE8 browser kept getting forced into compatibility mode with this module enabled. And the date in the upcoming events block suffered from some weird variant of the old peekaboo bug.

Yes, it's a pain to work with IE, but IE8 is the only supported browsers for users still on Windows XP which Microsoft doesn't end support for until April 2014.

Here's a developer's note on which browsers they support: http://help.time.ly/customer/portal/articles/792172-browser-support-for-the-all-in-one-event-calendar

Can't use it currently but has good potential
By , for WP 3.5.1

It keeps overwriting my htaccess and causing a 500 Internal Server Error which makes my site and all the site under it totally out of commission. This plugin has great potential if I could get rid of this bug and any other problems. I had to disable it. I would be willing to pay for this plugin at a reasonable cost or make donations for it if it worked.
