Makes perfect sense!

Some people are knocking this plugin because it requires you to set up an account at localendar.com. I am a long-time webmaster who has many sites moving to WordPress. Rather than migrate all of the existing content to a WP-specific plugin, this plugin lets me use all of their existing calendars. Plus, localendar has a ton of features most of these johhny-come-latelys just don't have

Uhh... What?
By , for WP 3.9.1

Why does this plugin have a conditional to load jQuery 1.4 if jQuery is undefined?

Also why does this plugin load 2 js files from your website instead of including these files inside the plugin itself... Which one of these JS files also loads 8 other JS files from your website. This is bad practice.

Not Friendly

I was trying to find a good plug in to use with my Google calendar. This is not it. I'm not even sure it is a real plug in since you have to host your calendar on a separate site, then embed their code onto your page, after you pay your subscription.

missing date

I selected the Premium version and it does everything I need it to do. I paid over $60 for another plugin and it would cut off the title and not display the time.

I needed to publish repeating events and some specialized - 2nd Friday, last Saturday, repeating - that I could not get other plugins to do.

I had some problems with the month not displaying but once I changed the style to the default style, I was able to view the month. If you can figure out the CSS, I'm sure that could be rectified too. For the cost, it does what I need it to do.

It's not that the month wasn't displaying, the problem lies in the fact that the font was white and so was the background of the section.


Never got it working

Indeed: I don't like to enter all my calendars to some other site!

Account needed

You need to create a seperate user account on another site.

Sooo easy

This calendar gives you a ton of different ways to publish and style the calendar. For the person who complained about "iframe" - that is just 1 way of many to publish the calendar. I guess some people want it perfect out of the box, but I like the ability to fit it perfectly to my site.

The look and feel is very easy to customize if you put a little effort in (I am very picky about my site)

Outdated and buggy
By , for WP 3.5.1

Looks like this was designed in 2001. No modern styling across the board. Several bugs with alignment and formatting. Just take a look at the forums to see all the issues. Chances are you can find something better.

Requires calendar hosted on their site, looks TERRIBLE
By ,

It's not immediately obvious that you need to set up an account and host your calendar on their website. That's the first bummer, but not a huge deal. I was able to get my .ics feed working fine within their system.

The real deal breaker for me is the visual appearance of this calendar. It looks like it was built in 1998. I will take an embedded Google calendar in an iframe over this any day of the week!

Sorry for being harsh, but seriously. Get some design help for this!
