Decent plug-in, however seems to have become over-complicated - the real reason for the low rating is the huge number of soft 404 errors it's generating, tried to fix the issue but am uninstalling it as it seems to be an ongoing issue that developers are aware of but not addressing.
Way too many complicated issues to get the formatting right. Dates don't show in event details; event description goes off the frame; default page stopped working properly after updated plugin. Help forum always says it's a theme issue so then you are narrowed down to only a couple of themes they claim work with this calendar. You really need developer level knowledge to work with this plugin. Too bad.
Get a error on fresh install: Warning: sprintf(): Too few arguments in /path_to_my_wordpress_installation/wp-content/plugins/the-events-calendar/src/admin-views/tribe-options-display.php on line 51
Trying the PRO version - Recurrence options are horrible to work with, cant repeat on specific days only.
Cant link the events together.
I dont like it.
Not bad, very clean looking indeed, wonderfully presented calendar.
But then I changed to list view and then I was disappointed to see a reference to the company, & on closer inspection the reference was a link, out of my HTTPS site. review of the price to pro hopefully to remove this is $89 This was a deal breaker.
There's just not enough of a compelling story to pay $89.its a calander, meh...
I am trying your plugin because i am interested in saling ticket. But actually i need to have displayed on the category page (of event calendar) the category description with its SEO otpi.
Is it possible to display event categories description into the event calendar category page ?
Thank you for your answer.
Too many issues to make it work correctly. Lots of information on the forums, but little real advice or solutions from the developer. Too much...Oh it's a theme issue, and no real solutions. But of course you can pay for premium support.
Guess I can't really complain...after all, it's a free version....Next!
Looking to the entire suite of "events calendar", reading descriptions, etc, you will say... wow. BUT (yes, is a big one)...
Are a lot of conditions to make it work, a lot of restrictions related to the rest of wordpress themes or plugins. More, suport is in fact almoust ZERO.
I bought pro version and i tried to use it with multilanguage suport (prolang plugin). When i contacted "tribe" i got the answer "is your fault. disable polilang". As result i bought... nothing.
After more than one year, tribe anounce together with late updates that they solve the issue with multilanguage Quite funny.
My advice: test first JUST free version and MAYBE later try to buy. As i said, as functionalities is ok, but with the rest...
Ah, i forgot: codex is another big mess. Don't count on it.
there is a problem, with choosing the preview I can just see the simple preview, also when I choose Events template and choose my own templae it don't show up, it's much easier if you provide a simple shortcode, So I can echo it on the page.
But I can only go by how functional this is with the Headway theme, and the answer is... not very.
Individual events show up fine and with loads of option and easily styled but I cannot get the events calendar itself to show up. The Events Calendar just replicates the site's Index page - whether that is customised or using it's own shared layout. It will show if the Index page has a content block but it also shows all the other layout as well - sliders, wrappers etc.
The Events slug isn't a page/post/category or anything else that can be detected or edited with Headway.
First off, I would like to say that this Calendar plugin is AWESOME. And it is very easy to use. So why the low score? Because you can't make money from event submissions. Which is a shame. I'm trying to make a site for nightclub/event promoters, and I needed a way to collect revenue from event submissions instead of ticket sells. And it turns out that this feature has been requested over two years ago and "it's still only in review". So go with Time.ly if you need this feature. If you don't need this feature, then you're in the right place... Maybe???
