A calendar system with many views, upcoming events widget, color-coded categories, recurrence, and import/export of .ics feeds.
I needed a simple events calendar for a client's website, but one that would allow me to "clone" events that have many of the same details but not all. This calendar has more features than I've been able to explore, and does everything I want it to. I did run into some snags with custom css, but was able to find my answers on the support forum, and those that weren't addressed in previous posts I had answered in posts of my own. Support took a little bit of time, but the answers were all there. Love it! The only thing I might suggest is a way of indicating differing times for events that span two or more days but have different start/end times. Even then, I was able to find a workaround for those few events that fell into this category.
Thanks for the plugin that seems to work after a quick check.
Could you please integrate the tags from the plugins with the tags from posts? It would be so much better if events could show up on tags click from posts... and related posts show up on clicking an event tag.
This is a six-star plugin with two-star beta-testing. Definitely one of the best and best-looking calendar plugins available. Powerful, easy to confiugre, and easy enough for my clients to do most of the updating. Support response from the Time.ly team is fast and helpful. Making a custom theme is fairly straightforward with a little bit of CSS. When it's stable, it's trouble-free and rock-solid. However, updates are a crap-shoot. Broken updates seem to be released too often for this plugin and a broken update can render your calendar unusable or take your site down. One point off my star rating for this. As of 12/14, versions 2.1.5 and 2.1.9 are rock-solid for me.
It's a bit limited on deep customization still, but overall this app is great and one of the better looking, most functional of the bunch. I tried a ton of them to accommodate our 3-day, multi-venue festival schedule, and this was the best one I can find. Customer service is also pretty responsive which is great. Recommended
This Calendar is a gem but i have a small issue, i was just wondering if when the calendar is on day view is there a way to stop events overlapping each other when close or the same time as other events.
Ran into a small problem with the widget for the All in one, but, just by creating a thread on their forum, and perhaps half an hour of patience, problem got checked and a solution given (which worked)
So far I have had very little issues with this plugin. My staging websites allow me to test if the plugin will have any issues and like any plugin there are times that bugs needs to be tested and fixed :). So far I have liked the Time.ly plugin the best for NWTA's events calendar.
I have been using this calendar for over a year on several sites and still think that it offers one of the best and feature-rich calendar plugins available for free.
I had initially a horrible experience: the version from the wp repository was crippled and I needed to download a version directly from the dev site - which then broke my site. Then the upgrade from v1 to v2 broke my site again - and I found out that I can't even post a bug report in the Time.ly forums because you needed a relatively high post count to be allowed to report a bug (seriously???).
So yes, I had some serious trouble in the past with the way the devs rolled out releases - but I had to stick with the calendar because I couldn't find anything comparable offering so much flexibility in calendar views (like the awesome posterboard view)...
Ever since the switch to v2, everything has been working fine. The one issue I have still found was that the free "extended views" plugin - which has to be downloaded separately from the Time.ly website (do it! The additional calendar views are GREAT) - does not update through the usual wordpress plugin admin screen. You need to periodically re-download the new version to keep everything working smoothly.
But when you are willing to do this little extra legwork of getting the free license number for the extra plugins from the website and downloading the plugin from there, you get a pretty solid calendar plugin that is very flexible how it looks and that has been working stable on my sites in all recent versions.
I have been using this plugin for a while and think that it has good functionality and a great looking interface. It offers a large number of options, the developers are constantly evolving it, and it is versatile. I would recommend this as a professional events system which is worth sticking with. Good as a system which you can get numerous users inputing into and robust.
