Why you changed a perfect plug-in I will never know
By , for WP 4.0

Why you decided to ruin a perfectly good, working plug-in I will never understand. The latest update has basically rendered my website as completely useless as the purpose of my site is to provide a list of activities for particular service user groups to be displayed on calendars and in lists. Your first big update initially removed all of my active calendars. After complaining on the forum that you had removed a much needed part of the functionality, you eventually replaced it. This may now, in some instances, show the desired information HOWEVER it does not comply with the rules set. Let me give you an example... I have a calendar on Google with 5 activities on for today..... Yet according the the 'Today' list provided by your plug-in there are 38 activities on today!

I honestly wish 0 stars were an option

Very flexible, user friendly and good looking
By , for WP 3.9.2

Very nice plugin, easy to install, and configure. The very flexible customisation (with multiple conditions) allows you to display the event exactly as if you wish. The calendar looks also very nice.
And, last but not least, the documentation and support are perfect.
Thanks!

some strange changes?
By , for WP 2.01

First: thanks for this plugin, which I have used for years (and was happy with the old functions...)

I noticed some changes, which are not so nice:
- example here http://www.fussball-spielplan.de/kalender-olympia-2014/
- a feed-page-URL is generated for every feed (why would anybody need that?)
- the feed URL in this example: http://www.fussball-spielplan.de/gce_feed/olympia/ is linked (without my knowing or wanting it) from the text under the article as the perm-URL to bookmark (???)
- from here "Dieser Eintrag wurde von veröffentlicht. Lesezeichen zum Artikel setzen." (Lesezeichen = Bookmark)
- as it is linked from the posts, the "perm-URL" aka feed-URL is indexed by Google!
- so now I have ugly posts indexed in the google index (which I disallowd in the robots.txt, but still)

--> please do not set the automatic link from the "bookmark/perm-URL"
--> please use meta-robots "noindex, nofollow" as default in the feed-URLs (I don´t see why anybody would want those ugly pages to be indexed!

thanks!

Plugin broke with update
By ,

I had to step all the back to version 0.7.3.1 to get my feeds working again. WTF?

2.0.3 Update lost functionality
By , for WP 3.9.2

This plugin has worked great up until tonight when I installed the 2.0.3 upgrade and lost functionality- there doesn't appear to be a way to limit events on the widget anymore. I had to downgrade to 0.7.3.1 to fix this.

You made my day

Great job! Slick look, easy to set up and customize.

Latest version much improved.
By , for WP 4.1

The latest versions fixed problems with specifying events starting within some range such as today and showing upcoming events. I think the plugin is very useful but the documentation could be improved regarding how to set up a feed. I would also like to be able to set up a feed to show just a specific month of events such as all those in March. My website lists the next three months of events by month. If there was an easy way to generate these three lists that would be helpful. http://www.troop1sb.com/calendar

Broke every calendar on the site (a dozen)
By , for WP 4.0

Every calendar is blank. Instead of 12 calendars, there are now 77 calendars, each with a different shortcode.

This is likely to cost me several hours (on MY dime) to get all the calendars back.

This is for a community center with lots of different kinds of activities and each kind of activity has it own sub-calendar, and each kind of activity's section has it's own widgets - including the calendar widget appropriate to that set of activities.

I believed when you said the site wouldn't break when I updated. My bad for gullibility.

Isues with update
