Just perfect!

In combination with WP FullCalendar it is just perfect!

One of the best...

...if not the best Events Calendar.
Thank you for this fantastic plugin.

Can't have an apostrophe in event titles and doesn't work with CrunchPress
By , for WP 4.5.3

Pretty good plugin except for the fact that the event breaks when you have an apostrophe in the title and if you're trying to integrate it with CrunchPress the times, author, and excerpt all break.

Good for basic calendar usage though.

Glitchy
By , for WP 4.5.3

Only one event shows in the list in both front and back ends, while the rest are 'hidden' (even though it states they are published). I've deactivated all plugins, changed themes and even reinstalled Events Manager but the problem still persists. A huge disappointment as on the surface, this would've been a very ideal plugin but alas I'll have to find another one to fulfil my needs. Please sort it out.

Better than others but still worse
By , for WP 4.5.3

In practice events and especially recurring events may change at some point in time. Since this plugin manages all recurrences as separate events, every change of the main event rewrites all single occurences and deletes all registrations and stuff. From a developer point of view the code is quite unstructured and bloated with lots of issues in my mind, e.g. uninstalling the plugin leaves all settings and records in the database.

Nearly now further development
By , for WP 4.5.3

This plugin basically offers abrobust core of functionality, although usability overall is quite low.

But what is even worse, apart from some bug fixing there is nearly no new development at all!! Major features are missing and had been discussed on the support thread already years ago, eg
- coupon codes per ticket type (per event)
- waitlist, when an event is full
- selective usage of payment options per event
etc etc etc

None of these things are present at all and it seems these guys will not bring any new functionality anymore. So it is probably not recommendable to purchase the pro version anymore

Develop custom gateway fail
By , for WP 4.5

Do not purchase the pro version if you are thinking about develop a custom gateway.

The "Custom Gateway API for Developers" is not documented at all, they just tell you to look into the default gateways code as an example.

Most versatile events plugin
By , for WP 4.5.2

There is nothing you can't do with this plugin. The shortcodes that you can create make this events plugin by far the best.

Awesome
By , for WP 4.5.2

Even the free version is a truly powerful tool, very versatile.

Keep up the good work!

My site had an early version of this plugin installed which had a vulnerability and resulted in all of my websites being infected with malware, which resulted in my sites being flagged as dangerous by Google and all web browsers.
