4.4 out of 5 stars
Buggy and resource demanding plugin
By , for WP 4.5

I really wish I could give this free plugin 5 stars, unfortunately, it is so buggy that I will have to give it a 2-star review.

After installing the plugin, my site slowed down by about 2 seconds on each page. This already indicates an unacceptable overload. Next, I click uninstall and deactivate the plugin. This doesn't work. So I try again and it works. Then I try to delete the plugin from WordPress Plugins and the plugin reactivates. Now there are even assigned Events inside Events Manager. I make a request in the WP support forums and is now guided to uninstall the plugin by going to Events -> Settings -> Uninstall and Deactivate.

I try the solution and this works. I can then delete the plugin.

The only reason that I give 2 stars is for the support and for the potential of this plugin. For now, I have found a paid solution that I hope will be more stable. Best of luck in improving this. I really believe it needs a good overhaul.

Couldn't be happier!

This is a great plugin. It does everything I wanted so as to run multiple training classes that our customers can sign up for and take. Email reminders are automatic, as well as notifications I have sent to our Accounting department.

Thank you!

Fantastic plugin, Many thanks !

Thx for this plugin.
It allows me to create a calendar for
1. editor users to add events occurring at specific locations,
2. editor users to add participants to each event,
3. regular user can view the full calendar (I use WP FullCalendar to display a good looking calendar)
Then, I run sql queries to display a monthly summary : per location, how many times users participated to events.
| Location 1 | Loc2 | ... | Total Days |
User1 | 2.5 | 1 | ... | 4.5 |
User2 | 4.5 | 0 | ... | 6.5 |
... | ... | ... | ... | ... |
Total | 15 | 12 | ... | 56 |
Very capable plugin, great work!
Highly recommended.

Sadly there is no better events management plugin
By , for WP 4.4.2

I'm using this plugin (pro version) for a customer, who organises courses/events. The plugin has a lot of possibilities and filters/actions to hook into and has a long history with alot of forum posts. The standard functions also work as expected, but despite of that I'm dissappointed:

  • The support isn't very helpful - I'm getting the impression the support team are not the same as the developer team, so that they were not always able to solve my problems
  • In the pro support forums you'll see that I'm not the only one, who has some really basic feature requests (cancelling events with notification to attendees, different attendee forms per ticket type, ...), that are not solved since 2 years and more

Because of that I had to dive very deep in the code of EM, override many functions and hook into a lot of filters and actions. This was very time consuming.

Great plugin

Fantastic plugin

Has a lot of features and configurable options, nearly perfect although the ability to email attendees would be useful.

Impressive plugin

Very comprehensive event management plugin that can easily be adapted to meet a plethora of requirements. Easy to set up by just about anyone and also well built for developers.

Fine work - but looks outdated

All in all great work - did not find anything about Ticket and how to handle Doormanagement, ev. with QR- or Barcode ?
Design is very poor, do not see any good integration, and some users talk about heavy work on styling...
