I'm tired of update the code because of your changes
By ,

Countless times I've needed to update my customized calendar template because of the plugin's updates... so, I need to keep always an old version or update ALL the time the plugin AND my template because the old references, the deprecated this or that... now I can't see the location of the event and I'm wasting time looking for a solution... too bad guys, it was a really nice plugin

Dont work with Headway Framework
By , for WP 4.3.1

Very bad support for Headway framework, all other plugins work flawlessly in Headway. Very disappointed.

It's shit

Don't buy this.
Basic functionality is missing (such as diet preference and product variations). It also cannot deal correctly with taxes.


google-map not working
By , for WP 4.2.3

instead of an embedded google-map there only is a white box :-(

Horrible Plugin and I can't deactivate it
By , for WP 4.2.2

Customization is very difficult. It will be a 12 hour job to get it to display the way I want it to display.

If it had not come bundled with the theme I purchased, I would have never used it.

Only shows 404 message instead of calendar
By , for WP 4.2.2

This is a problem others are having according to their forum and no solution has been offered for weeks so I guess I will move on and try another calendar. This really looked like this was going to be the right calendar plug in for me.

Needs a little mission-critical work
By , for WP 4.2.2

I really like this plugin.

When you uninstall it, it does not back out completely. I had an /events/ page before the plugin, and it took over that URL (as I'd intended). When I removed the plugin, I could not access my existing /events/ page.

To fix this, I had to re-install the plugin, change the Settings to use another URL (in this case, /areyoukiddingme/) and remove it again. Then I was able to access my existing /events/ page.

I recommend this plugin, but only after this is fixed. I like what they've done, but permanently hijacking a URL is a big no-no.

sophisticated plugin BUT missing key features
By , for WP 4.1.1

This is a great plugin, but it is missing key features like changing colors and calendar titles.

These are basic functions and I can only assume there is some reason the developers have left these settings out of their plugin.

I have wasted hours figuring out have to change the table color of the month/day/list view. I'm currently wasting time trying to figure out how to change the calendar title from the default 'Events for...' to something more relevant to my website. And, I kinda know what I'm doing...

Most of the support/forums are outdated and do not/won't work for the current version of this plugin.

This is a very sophisticated plugin. I cannot for the life of me figure out why the developers left out these features. It would be very simple for them to include these functions in the plugins settings.

Looks great but not dependable
By ,

If you have payng customers I would be very cautious about using this. Stopped working after update and can not get a response from support. It looks great and was perfect when it worked, just make sure you have a back up plan

Great Product, Not Great on Support Response
By ,

This is a great plug-in. Had some questions that I posted weeks ago and have not yet gotten a response. I feel like to have a good product you have to have a good tech support. Not happy with this. These developers do not have a care in the world for their customers.
