Great features
By , for WP 4.2.5

I'm fairly new to WordPress and Google Calendar Events/Simple Calendar. This plug-in does exactly what I want it to do.

After update useless - disaster
By , for WP 4.3.1


best version is 2.4.0

After updating unusable
start of the week can not be set

First class plug-in and support
By , for WP 4.3.1

Making major changes to software is always controversial, but is occasionally required. The new version now works exactly as I want. Support was first class through the forum, at what must have been an exceptionally busy time, especially when you remember that both software and support are free.
Thank you!

Multiple empty events
By , for WP 4.3.1

I have a hard time complaining about something that is free. I've been checking back since the initial change to the new version. Everything I would have submitted had already been addressed. The only reason I do not have this visible on my site is that for the current day there are 4 empty events. Event Event Event Event. They all say they start at 12:00 AM and run through 11:59 PM.

The first day I thought it was a problem with my calendar but there are no events. If I uncomment the calendar code tomorrow will have 4 empty events.

I was able to get rid of the empty events by showing all recurring events instead of limiting it to the first occurrence.

A Complete Disaster
By , for WP 4.3.1

Do not update this plugin! The developers took a perfect plugin and destroyed it with a terrible update that does not work. Nothing displays. Every calendar shows a 404 not found. It's completely busted.

DO NOT MAKE UPDATE!!!! the previous version worked perfect...
If you want a Perfect, discret and functional Pluggin, stick to this version:
At least while the awesome autor release an official v.3 Pluggin.

Disaster after the last update
By , for WP 4.3.1

I don't know what the author is thinking, but he made a perfectly usable plugin an unusable piece of crap. Suddenly nothing works at all! I have a feeling the author is heading in the wrong direction with the development of this plugin.
Either revert to older version or we'll find another option.
