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
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.
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)
I love this plugin! It makes my wordpress happy and by extension it makes the hardware that it runs on happy. I got an email from our hosting company last week telling me that our servers have been humming and chattering lately. We told them not to worry about it because the machines are just so excited about the new release of LoCalendar!
(Seriously, it's cool software, written by cool folks. Excellent calendaring support and fantastic end user support. Highly recommend.)
lots of flexibility on my wordpress site.
localendar has been around for 13 years as an independent web-calendar product. Many of our members have asked us for the ability to integrate their existing calendars into their WordPress sites. Now you can.
Unlike other calendar plugins that are restricted to WordPress, localendar offers a full suite of functionality for any open web platform. Moving from WordPress to Drupal? Take your calendar with you. Creating an HTML5 mobile app? Your calendar comes along. Do you want to let visitors create their own personal calendars? localendar can give you this ability.
We've built our product around more than a decade of member feedback, and we are happy to bring these features to the WordPress community. And if you branch off into other areas of web development, we'll be there to support you.
