Almost perfect
By , for WP 4.1

This plugin looks really nice. The only thing I'm missing is the possibility to limit the number of events that is shown in the widget. This would be better than limit by a certain number of days, as this option might result in list of events that is too long. I don't like to loose control of my homepage.

Good functionality
By , for WP 4.0

Could do with a bit of refinement e.g. time picker but the functionality is all there.

Needs am/pm feature
By ,

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.
