It's an amazing calendar plugin! It match exactly what I had been searching for in calendars!

This is one you have to add to your website or Blog!

Thanks to the developers!

Monthly Calendar Dates Wrong
By , for WP 3.7.1

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.

don;t buy

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.

Awesome plugin!
By , for WP 3.6.1

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!

Good but has major drawbacks
By , for WP 3.6.1

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.

Where's the widget?
By , for WP 3.6.1

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.

Something strange happened
By , for WP 3.6

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.

Functional and efficient
By , for WP 3.6

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.
