There are many eventcalendar or eventmanagement plugins in the wordpress universe. I've tested the most popular ones. No reason to name them here.
And my favourite one became Events made easy because of its easy customizeable behaviour. It is easyly possible to customize the look via css and to make several different layouts.
Also there are all important shortcodes and placeholders which makes it easily possible to filter eventlists and to customize the outputs.
Another big plus of eme is the fb-sync-addon, which I give as well a toprating.
Whats left to say is, that the support is one of the best of all plugins I've been using.
This plugin rescued me as i had issues with the other event plugins that worked with posts. This doesn't allowing me to keep things separate.
Haven't used all the features yet, but it has no drawbacks or bizarre surprises so far, and everything works. This is far from the norm for plugins, so congrats to the developers!
When my clients see their new site, I'll donate a portion of my fee to you with pleasure.
I've started a small series of training sessions and used EME to administrate my participants and register them via my website. I encountered EME and was able to implement it really fast due to the excellent support of Franky. Beyond that most of my special requirements have been taken into account since then and have been implemented very quickly. I started to support the plugin and now I'm a regular translator to the new versions in German. Due to its architecture you can use this plugin to almost any requirements in design and layout. If you don't give it a try you will miss an amazing plugin.
I am really happy with this plugin. Franky develops professional code AND he responds to questions with speed and care which can often not even be found with premium plugins. We are currently using it in German and English language for classical concerts bookings and art and culture bus trips. Works fine with 4.1.1.
We appreciate the google maps integration as well as the flexible pricing options und placeholders.
Only sometimes we miss a placeholder for #_EDITLOCATION which come somewhen.
The support is brilliant - fast and responsive.
Having several years experience with the plugin.
To create a recurring event, the current date has to be the date of the first event.
That is, if today is 2/1/2015, but I want to create a monthly event that begins on Saturday 2/7/2015 and it repeats every 1st Saturday, when I click "Save" the recurrent event is not created and everything I entered is lost.
The only way I have ever been able to create a recurring event is to wait until the day of the 1st occurrence and then set things up. In otherwords, to set up a recurring event to begin on 2/7/2015 and repeat every 1st Saturday of the month (or whatever), then I have to wait until 2/7/2015 to set up the recurrent event or else it won't take.
Just downloaded the plugin, had some problems figuring out something and posted in the Forum at 3am on a Thrus. By the time I woke up at 9am, I had 3 responses and code added to the plugin specific to my request!
I have paid people to do programming work and never seen this type of support. Just check out the support forum on wordpress.org and you will see. Thanks again for the amazing work you are doing.
Works smoothly for simple events.
Includes basic booking features and works...
Keep up good work!
