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

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

Super Duper ;-)

Fantastic plugin, probably the best event/calendar plugin we've used to date. (And there have been quite a few 'experimented' with.)

Event Organiser may not be (quite) as intuitive or hands-off in initial set up as some, but its flexibility far surpasses others, and we've just started with it. If fact, the lack of flexibility of another 'all in one' calendar plugin made us abandon it and search for something better.

The documentation is well done, as is the structure and code itself. For developers, the templates are easily understood and customized by copying the files to your theme's root directory.

The CSV import plugin is essential if you're dealing with more than a handful of events to set up. And the calendar view in the admin is really smart.

It would be nice to see a few more things optionally controlled by admin options rather than only with shortcodes and arguments, but overall it's good enough that that's being nitpicky. This is the 'something better' that was needed!

Best events manager plugin for WordPress
By , for WP 4.1.1

We've been using this plugin along the Events Organiser posterboard for several months and we love the fact that is simple and intuitive to upload events.

On the technical side the plugin is flexible, well documented and great support. The plugin gets regular updates for improved functionality and bug fixes.

Totally recommended.

Very complete list of features, we never missed anything. (German) Translations incomplete, but that's not really a pain.
Thanks 4 your work!

Simple, Functional and Developer-Friendly

Went through several other Event plugins, but their confusing methodologies and overly complex setups were not what I needed. Event Organiser has exactly the right amount of features and simplicity, and the documentation is very thorough. Allows for easy integration with themes using WordPress's default file structure, with great APIs for integrating event information.
