Beyond expectations. I cannot stress how much I love this widget.
Not very easy to figure out if you're a noob. I know the basics of setting up a website and have managed to do a lot myself, but trying to figure out how to sync my google calendar in list view on the sidebar of my website was an exercise in frustration.
I used the widget with my ical url and followed the instructions I was able to decipher, however, the darn thing would only show 'no upcoming events', when in fact there were tons of events on my calender. I searched up and down for a way to fix this, but came upon nothing I could understand.
The support language is too technical for laymen. Developer's explanations are neither clear nor thorough. No step by step guide on how to carry out key set up functions. If you don't understand web development jargon you will get lost. Spent hours trying to figure this without success. Wasted an entire afternoon and I'm annoyed enough about it to leave this negative review.
Out of the box, this plugin probably won't look great, and learning how to customize it to match your site will take a couple hours, but that's because the plugin has so much functionality to match the design and structure of almost any webpage.
Furthermore, the develop was incredibly quick and thorough in responding to a support post I made. I highly recommend the plugin to anyone who has the time to learn how to use it, and I recommend the (paid) amr-events plugin by the same developer which adds some functionality to this plugin
This is the ONLY plugin I've been able to find that provides support for events in multiple timezones and display them all in local time. This happens using a shortcode parameter. It also supports using timezones in both Google and Apple calendars. Now I can simply enter an event using its own date-time and timezone in my iPhone calendar, and it will appear automatically, displaying the correct local time on the WordPress site. Excellent!
Really great !! Lots of options....
Been using this for many months now... thanks a bunch.
I've been using this plugin for years now. It addresses a very complex issue which it solves as good as you could expect. All support questions have been solved in one way or another and the plugin itself can be customized (output-wise) via a sub-plugin, templates for which are provided. Thank you very much for this piece of code!
Given the infamous Nov 17 deprecation by Google of their API v2, which caused most of our event calendar widgets to break, I had to go searching for a new solution.
Stumbled onto this amr ical events list plugin and am happy to say it works great. Within a few hours, I have a new Upcoming Events list that is styled just the way we need it.
Great plugin for us so far.
The plugin works very well and looks really nice on our site.
With the author's fast and helpful responses, I was able to customise it just the way I wanted it.
In particular, I needed it to work with calendar.live.com which uses Microsoft's strange timezone format and Anmari kindly updated the plugin as soon as I reported the issue.
The plugin has lots of features and I would recommend it.
Love it, it did exactly what I wanted it to: show upcoming events from a remote ical/ics feed (ArtistData) for a local rock band. This is something that didn't work quite right in any other plugin I could find including Gigpress & ArtistDataPress. AMR iCal Events, on the other hand, has many configurable options, and the support rocks!!! Recommended!!!
We're showing several ical feeds on out site which are hosted by Google.
With this plugin it's no problem to display this events to inform out guests about upcoming events.
The plugin works directly after installing it.
Your able to choose from some design out of the box and also you can create your own styles.
Thanks for developing!
