A full featured, simple to use Spiffy Calendar plugin for WordPress that allows you to manage and display your events and appointments.
Just the right level of complexity for an events calendar. The other calendar plugins seemed overly complex or too basic for my particular needs, but this one is just right. The recurring events option is particularly useful.
I tried several different calendar plugins on my site but none looked as good as Spiffy Calendar. With a few tweaks to the code this app works perfectly and looks great on all devices. Only thing I wish it had is the ability to list the past X number of events instead of just upcoming events because this would be great for my sidebar. Hopefully this will be a later enhancement.
What more can be said...?
Finaly I got a plugin I was lookong for
Easy to use and attractive calendar. Thank you!
This is THE calendar I've been looking for.
There is one caveat. When entering time for events after noontime, you MUST either use 24-hour time -or- you must put pm to get the correct time for events after 12:59 (any time from 12:00 to 12:59 defaults to pm). Otherwise, an entry of "5:30" defaults to am - and my choir people would not like choir rehearsal at 5:30 am. If you happen to have an event that ends between midnight and 1:00 am, you need to enter "am" after that time to indicate and early morning end-time.
A 24-hour yes/no setting would be nice, and when "no" is selected, a mandatory am/pm selection box would be nice in the begin- and end-time data fields. I'm not going to be the one always entering calendar events - these checks would make sure event times are entered correctly. My instructions for event entry will be to always put "am" or "pm" after the time as appropriate.
Otherwise - clean, simple, easy to use. The Upcoming Events displays more info when mouse hovers over event (the width of this sticky-note looking box can be changed in the code under Calendar options). Also has a Today's Events feature which is perfect for keeping the front page updated.
Added Dec 3, 2013 - Support is super! I have been able to resolve all my issues, even though I have had no experience with .php and CSS files.
Spiffy calendar plugin is simple to use and the add event interface is direct and contains everything you need to display an event (event name, description, date/time, and a direct link). I like the fact you don't need to go through an "add post" process. The direct link can link to a page that already exists in your site for event that occurs frequently. Simple and to the point!!!
The Calendar is very easy to use and manageable.
After struggling with another calendar for some time and not getting a response from the developer, I found this perfect replacement. It was easy to set up, the instructions are short and sweet and written in non-developer language so I can understand, and it will work well for my readers. Thanks SO MUCH!!
I was looking for a simple calendar to list events that would be user friendly and somewhat customizable for style. This fit the bill perfectly and ended a frustrating week of testing overly complicated plug-ins. Thank you to the developers.
