Terrible Technical Support
By , for WP 4.5.3

I have used this calendar for my website for years and it has been outstanding. As of the new release, I updated my version to the most current, and now it doesn't function at all...it is useless. I have tried posting in the support forum and NO ONE WILL RESPOND TO ME AT ALL!!!! It has been more than 2 weeks and I'm pretty disappointed given the fact that this calendar has been in the past such a great calendar feature.

No ics import
By , for WP 4.5.3

These greedy plugin developers are killing WordPress. Find a good plugin? Well it's sure to be behind a paywall and coupled with a deceitful description. No way left for ordinary people to run a WP blog.

MIsleading
By , for WP 4.5.3

It's misleading to say that it imports feeds, since it only does this with a paid account. Functionally useless 'key feature' which doesn't belong in the plugin directory.

No longer usable - Forced time.ly-network-Sign Up leads to internal server error
By , for WP 4.5.2

I realized that my calendar-events weren't updated for a while and wanted to check this in the settings. There i got the message that i have to sign up for a time.ly-network-account to further use and manage the feeds. So when i pressed sign up or even the setting-button (both of them leads to .../wp-admin/edit.php?post_type=ai1ec_event&page=all-in-one-event-calendar-settings) i get an internal 500 server error. i've even completly deleted the calendar-plugin and installed it again - same error. I am currently no longer able to use this calendar!

Horrible for custom loops
By , for WP 4.5.2

Trying to loop through the different events using the wordpress loop is too much of a hassle. After ages of trying to ask the community for help, trying different options and solutions I could not get a simple loop to work. I could not find any documentation on WordPress Loops for the plugin and solutions that did work, doesn't work anymore... Don't know why. It required me to go looking through the plugin folder to actually find what I need to target.

Used to be great... Not for years though...
By , for WP 4.4

Our organization used to love this plugin back in the day, before they sold out.
Over the last year plus, they've not just let their core plugin languish, but have even removed features , either discontinuing support all together (looking at you, Facebook import), or moved them over to paid addons. And if their dated design and lack of features wasn't enough, they've been horrible at addressing bugs, and their support forums are laughable.
Four months ago, our organization switched over to The Events Calendar, and we've never been happier.

Very Big and very Hard

Nice design, to bad it´s not working that well
By , for WP 4.4.1

Timely asked fot my opinion on their plugin All-in-one-event-calendar, so here goes...

After using it for almost a year I looked for a more reliable one, after every update to the plugin it broke and the calendar couldn´t be shown.

Ok, it looks great, really great design... But it takes more than design to make a great plugin.
My rating: 1 star (and that´s just because I couldn´t find out how to rate them zero)
