Developer friendly and doesn't reinvent the wheel
By , for WP 4.2.2

I've looking for a good solution for events management for a while. Found some good solutions, although some of those have nasty template hierarchy and do not follow some of WordPress ways of doing things. That makes the developer life harder necessarily.

Im glad to say that isn't the case with this plugin. The code is well structured, it has good documentation and it is developer friendly. The admin has some nice touches in terms of user experience, the map responding to the user address input is one of those. Really cool.

Still in the Dashboard, the separation of concerns with settings put aside from the main options is a positive approach in my view too.

Fantastic plugin, probably the best event/calendar plugin I have used to date.
I manage a hotel website development that has bands and the events organisor calendar plugin is a must have. It is not completely easy to customize however with a little code knowledge you can get it looking to suit your website development. Highly recommended
Keep up the awesome coding, Stephen.

Errors and not clean uninstall.
By , for WP 4.2.2

Found errors on many places such as on event calendar widget and event pages that require sidebar.php.

After uninstalled this plugin did not clean its tables and option value.

I was think that it might be very good plugin after added venue and event but it's not.
Event cannot edit occurances at all.

Now this is a good plugin

I had to build a website for a festival and after a comprehensive research I ended up choosing Events Organiser Pro as the events manager. And boy, I'm glad I did!

My client kept throwing requisites during development and EO kept delivering!
There's a lot of relevant features in this plugin, it's highly customisable and has some seriously good support (cheers Stephen!).

I feel EO really bent over backwards to accommodate all the features I needed for the website and left me truly impressed with it's flexibility.


Straight Forward and Easy for Clients to Manage Events
By , for WP 4.2.2

I came to Events Organiser from another events management plugin. Whilst it took me some time to get my head around the way repeated Events are handled (my "pre-conception" rather than a plugin issue - think of an Event as an object that can have an array of dates - rather than a one to one relationship of Event with Date - and you've "got it"), this makes for a superior "client experience" when managing multiple repeated events.

Good documentation is available as both "user guide" and codex, although we would benefit from a few more detailed examples (me being "thick"!). That said, the sample code provided with the plugin will cover almost all your "regular" scenarios (so check the files out). Support (whether you've purchased the plugin or not) is quick, professional and effective.

Would certainly recommend you check out Events Organiser if you're looking for an Event Management system that's easy for your clients to use.

Big thumbs up to the plugin and its' author Stephen Harris.

My favourite calendar
By , for WP 4.2.2

I design sites primarily for churches, and almost all of them want this functionality. So I've worked with a number of different plugins to achieve this result and this one is my new favourite. The main reasons are it looks great (picks up css from the theme), and it is dead-simple to use. Often I'm passing the site on to someone else to maintain - someone with limited computer skills, who doesn't want to scroll through a million technical options just to post an event. So my thanks to the developer for building this and making it available!

Excellent work from Stephen Harris
By , for WP 4.2.1

Having tried many other events management plugins for WordPress, Event Organiser is the one I keep coming back to for my clients. It's coded in the most 'WordPress' way, so developing themes using EO is very straightforward.

It may lack some of the shiny features of the bigger packages (namely ticketing), but most of my clients can be convinced to forgo ticketing (in place of guest lists) for the ease of use and stability of Event Organiser.

Keep up the awesome sauce, Stephen.

Awesome event management plugin
By , for WP 4.2

Excellent functionality. Great documentation. Shortcodes provide useful additional features. Highly recommended.

Robust, speedy events management
By , for WP 4.1.1

It only took me a couple of hours to transition one of my clients away from the (in)famous All-in-One Events Calendar. Event Organiser was incredibly easy to set up and once we'd moved over the site speed rocketed up.

My client needed iCal syncing with Google Calendars, so I picked up the ridiculously cheap extension for that. Where All-in-One calendar would take ages to sync and consistently drop events, Event Organiser pulled them in much quicker. The calendar loads more quickly on the frontend of the site as well, a big problem with All-in-One.

The templates required minimal changes because Event Organiser doesn't load things down with heavy, over-bearing styles and markup. This is definitely a developer-friendly plugin -- even more so than the other big calendar competitor, Modern Tribe's calendar, which tends to bury a lot of its frontend output in large wrapper functions that need to be rebuilt for proper templating.

Best solution I found
By , for WP 4.1.1

I was looking for a simple ajax calendar with navigation. This is the best solution, even better then paid plugins.
