I'd likely give this calendar plugin a 4 or 5 star rating if not for the fact that the monthly calendar dates are a day off and after a web search it looks like its been off since June with no updates to fix it. Bummer. I like it.
this plugin gave me loads of head-aches. Actually the only plugin I ever paid for, because it seemed worth the money, but didn;t get it to work as advertised..
Maybe because of multiple site setup; mostly because the activation just sucked...
finally, after trying 5 similar plugins, an events calender that actually works as it says! All I had to do was create the category, select the page for the calender and post the event. Just like in Heaven.
I love this plugin. I've only been using it for about an hour and it's fantastic. I had been using Time.ly's All in One Calendar for a long time but their update kept failing and crashing. Since they removed their plugin from wordpress, I removed their plugin from my site.
Time to move on. CalPress works like a charm out of the box. I spent an hour or so customizing the CSS and creating some child pseudo classes but it was a breeze. Best part is that this plugin imported events without me telling it too AND event categories! Love it.
The only thing keeping me from giving it 5 stars is the calendar view (when using it on a page with a sidebar) cuts off the bottom of a long event description and there's no scrollbar appearing. It also strips out html (a href) tags out of the description too. Wish it didn't but still a great plugin.
I recommend it!
My initial reaction was very positive as the plugin is easy to set up and use and has lots going for it.
However, and it's a BIG however, it really slows down the entire site and doesn't appear to work in IE.
OK, so we know IE is a piece of old junk, but there are millions of users out there still using it.
Plain and simple, a sidebar widget is needed. One that actually shows a calendar and not just a list of events. Disappointing...off to find a new plugin.
When installed and I was configuring, I suddenly got "You have an unstable version of IE". Really? No one else ever told me this. Also has an unnecessary graphic with Upcoming Events - and no way to remove it.
I've used several calendar plugins, and this is the first that is able to combine multiple published calendar feeds (including iCloud feeds), and even combine them with events created in WordPress.
If you're looking for a functional and reliable calendar plugin, this is it.
Does the plugin have a feature that allows users to add events, allows the administrator to approve or disapproval an event submitted by a user?
Does it also allow users to attach a file (pdf, image) along for instance or does it allow me to create custom forms for users to do so?
Wow!! I'm so happy to have found this calendar!! It allows me to promote my community events in a powerful way...SIMPLY!! Thank You!! And...I must fully compliment the customer service that I received!! My small challenge was quickly resolved with your support!! I encourage web designers of all calibers to try Calpress Calendar!! It is a GREAT product!! :)
