I really like the calendar and its features, but it tends to slow the website down adding over 1 second to a page load (using P3 Plugin Profiler) @ sifministries.org
I came back here to comment on the poorly implemented plugin cleanup. I spent several hours trying to get this plugin to do what I needed and couldn't, so I went with another calendar about 3 months ago.
I came back here to comment as I was recently working on my own plugin (not related to calendars) and I came across some DB clutter using the ai1ec tag. Specifically in the Roles Capabilities. Also there were ai1ec options in the options table still.
This kind of thing irks me, as a properly built plugin will be considerate of users by ensuring that remnants of itself are not left in a database after uninstall, unless this is a featured option which is communicated to the user.
This is however a massive plugin, so I do not want to dissuade people from trying it nor the devs to continue to improve.
I needed an event organizer that would replicate a paper agenda and I was given the option of paying thousands of € to make an App. This plugin has simply saved my wallet!
That was my first impression. Then the plugin started breaking and breaking things, literally by the minute. Now I understand why so many complaints about instability.
From 5 stars to 3 in one day. Let's see how long it'll take until I downgrade to 1 only (or get back to 5). I simply hate faulty products, and certainly puts off any intention of purchasing add-ons!
I have been using Time.ly's All In One Calendar Events in my business for about a month now and find it superb! I love how you can control the look and feel of the display using CSS, as well as the range of options of different types of calendar.
It works beautifully on mobile devices, the ability for users to subscribe to the calendar, as well as use of images are my favourite features.
I had questions about how to customise the tool and also about which plugins or options might be best for my business and Bradley from Time.ly was extremely helpful and generous with his time.
I'm not going to ask my host for more memory just to use this plugin but its really good plugin, been using for a few months but had to UNINSTALL.
It's lacking some functionality that would make it perfect and I've been a part of support requests that have gone unacknowledged for over a month.
Doesn't play well with Jetpack and they aren't even responding to Jetpacks request to work with them.
It's fine for a calendar but don't expect it to do much else and don't hold your breath waiting on replies.
Nice plugin. Thanks.
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.
Not totally broken, but a little bug in the full calendar display, where some weekend events display as occurring for the whole month. Had to delete them and re-add them.
Since the latest update of the Timely calendar, it is no longer possible to edit event categories for color or image, nor is it possible to change the master settings of the calendar.
