Great plugin, but not flexible enough
By , for WP 4.2.3

This is one the best WP events plugins. I tried all well known plugins, and they all have some pretty serious flaws. When I tried EM I was pretty excited about it. It has many features and settings, and overall the workflow is pretty usable (could be better though). But after some testing I found it has at least two serious shortcomings: both the recurring events management and the bookings management are way to rigid for real live use on a more than very small and incidental scale.

For example the "master event" of a recurring event cannot be changed in any way without deleting ALL bookings that were already made. So even correcting a typo will delete all bookings. So forget about changing times, locations, prices etc in recurring events after bookings have been made. You can detach individual events from a series and alter them without any harm, but in case of many events that need to be edited this will be very annoying and time consuming.
And besides this, there are more aspects of the recurring events system that are just not flexible enough.

Also the bookings management is too rigid. For example you cannot do anyting with a booking besides altering the nummber of tickets. You cannot edit personal data, nor transfer bookings to other dates/times.

When these biggest features would be improved big time, this plugin would be the best one there is. But right now, I cannot give more than 3 stars, even though EM is truly a powerful plugin in features and options. I hope the devs come up with a major update soon!

I think this is the best events plugin for wordpress! A lot of customize options and easy to handle even for people who don't know the wordpress backend and how to use it!

5 stars well earned
By , for WP 4.2.2

I have tested so many calendar plugins. Even some paid ones. Untill I stumbled upon this one..
It has just everything I needed for most of my projects.
Give it a 5-star rating, because it has every needed feature in a FREE plugin.
Thanks for the hard work!

Widget Calendar Oversized
By , for WP 4.2.2

Hi,

I am trying to find out why the widget calendar is twice the size of the sidebar dimensions. I have been looking for code to adjust it but can't seem to find anything. Any ideas how I can fix this?

Support Is Useless
By , for WP 4.1.1

If it works this app might be great but if it does not and you ask for support they just close support request without resolving the issue

Looks nice but memory slurping
By , for WP 4.1.1

The interface looks nice, but just after installing and activating this plugin and having done nothing with it yet, the memory consumption for every WordPress pageview skyrocketed with an additional 6 MB.

6 MB memory EXTRA usage for every WordPress pageview is insane.

Great for a microblog that has only a few pagehits every day, but if you have a larger site or you want to grow, you will kill your server quickly, or your hosting company will start yelling at you.

Please make this great plugin consume at least 50% less memory.
