Doing great !

Not an easy task - but it is coming along perfectly!

Should be new plug-in - not update
By ,

We loved this plug-in with all versions up to 2.4. Then we installed the "update" to 3.0.5 and everything we had done to make this calendar fit nicely into our website has broken. It would have been best if they had just stopped updating the GCal plug-in and released a whole new plug-in with full disclosure.

should have read the reviews

dammit. Broke everything. DO NOT INSTALL!
My navigation went nuts. Now I have to find out how to fix this shit.

srsly. dammit.

Best Google Calendar Plugin there is!
By , for WP 4.3.1

This is hands down the best Google Calendar plugin out there today. I tried 10+ others before finding this one and the rest don't even compare! The ease of use and functionality that comes built in is second to none! If you have an issue, they work directly with you to figure it out and publish an update!

A+ plugin!

A client updated the plug-in. I have wasted two hours of my time so far. It is impossible to save the Events source or the Calendar type.


Update Chaos

Attention when going to any 3.xx version!! Nothing will be the same ..

Don't change a running system!

Should be considered a new plugin, not an update
By , for WP 4.3.1

It's got a new name, and that's appropriate, because this recent 'update' essentially created a new plugin. This is fine, but it should not have replaced the old plugin. Deprecate the old one, create some messaging suggesting people migrate to a new plugin ... don't force someone adopt what is patently not the same thing. Configuration settings are totally changed, styling is lost, functionality is removed. This was not kind! Thankfully, having made regular backups, we could still install the old plugin again and halt updates on it. We will consider moving to 'Simple Calendar' if it can accomplish a couple simple feats:

  • Allow a feed of events combining multiple calendars, as the Google Calendar Events Plugin allows
  • Promise not to ever again pull such a lousy stunt, breaking website functionality again
Last updated screwed widget...
By , for WP 4.3.1

When this plugin works its really good. I'd got up to version 3.0 ok but forgot to read other's comments before going to the latest update. Mainly use the sidebar widget too and although it worked it was nothing like the old version. Beware of updating

Last update totally broke my calendar

It was working great until the last update:


Too bad :(

update rendered it useless for me
By , for WP 4.3.1

I used this plugin primarily as a widget that combined multiple feeds into one. this functionality has been removed rendering the plugin useless for me.
