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

Dissapointed about the Support...
By , for WP 4.1

Hi,

I'm using events Manager now for 1 year plus and all works fine. I bought pro addon also and everything was fine but last week WordPress told me about the new update. Since that Moment the plugin is not able to edit or create recurring events on sunday only.

I offer diving courses and the day for the lessons is only on sunday...

Opened a support Ticket in pro Support forum 8 days ago and until now the Ticket is still Open and no reaction or fix to see...

You buy pro, you Pay pro, you have pro Support Forums, but what you get is.... Not pro, or better no Support...

Very dissapointed about that...

Lacking Attendee Email Notifications (confirmations and reminders)
By ,

You can't send email notifications to attendees. This has been a problem ever since I paid for Events Manager Pro in 2012. Paid for another year of "premium support"-- still no movement on this issue. I would think sending confirmation and reminder emails to attendees would be a must-have feature. My customer requires the registration and payment for multiple attendees. The person registering the attendees does not attend the event. My team is extremely disappointed with Events Manager and Events Manager Pro due to the wasted time and effort trying to get email notifications to attendees. If you don't need to communicate with your attendees or only need to sell one event spot at a time (to users only), this plugin does work, but is bloated and cumbersome to set up.

unacceptable
By , for WP 3.8.1

more than 300 entries in wp_options, different shortcuts for wp_options and uninstall leaves the records in the database are unacceptable

Worked for 5 mins then caused a 500 error across all sites on server
By , for WP 3.8.1

Using WP 3.8.1 with default twentyfourteen theme

Set up the standard 'out of the box' install, added 1 event, then within 5 mins all got a 500 error across all sites on the dev server - not too promising
ssh'd in restarted -> fell over again,
removed plugin, restarted -> hasn't fallen over yet...

Draw your own conclusions

Be Alert...

This Plugin is crap. Ambiguous Code. You'll be lost if you try to fetch location, events. Some time location come with event some time doesn't.

My Boss and Client is shouting me after using this. Hell Plugin.

Broke the admin panel

Had to remove via FTP. Seems a shame.

Dont work! Worst Customer Service I've ever see!
By ,

Dont work! Conflict with my theme! What the support says? Support says: so sorry.

I paid for the PRO module that does not work in our theme. Prepare your self to get the worst customer service ever!

THIS WILL BE YOUR EMAIL FROM SUPPORT!!!
"I have receied your dispute from PayPal, however this is not the right approach to take with us if you're having issues with our plugin. As we clearly state on our site that we do not provide refunds, and as we state in PayPal's seller messge when your raising a dispute, we will object to your case and your purchase will not be refunded but charged as an administrative fee for our time spent providing PayPal with appropriate proof against yoru dispute."

Crashes my site
By , for WP 3.5.1

This plugin crashes my site http://www.paaspissen.no. Any idea why, anyone?

Plugin update has placed my site in Permanent Maintenance

Plugin update has placed my site in Permanent Maintenance.

I believe it is also the reason my server acct was suspended for writing millions of lines to the MySQL database, banning my account.

I just FTP'd into my site and deleted it. Don't intend to return.
