Tired of This Plugin
By , for WP 4.5.3

The brand new update wiped out all my pages. Their plugin, which I have used for over a year, has always interacted poorly with my professional, supported theme. I upgraded initially from their free version to pro. The pro version brought nothing exciting, despite a stiff annual subscription fee, and the add-ons were exploitive. Support was nearly worthless as it continued to conflict with my theme. I give two stars because they've managed to develop the ONLY viable calendar plugin available through the official market. This is when I really wish I was a PHP developer. Ugh.

Generating many Soft 404 errors
By , for WP 4.4.2

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.

Not as easy as implied
By , for WP 4.4.2

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.

Dont like it...
By , for WP 4.4.2

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
By , for WP 4.4.2

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...

Plugin not showing descriptions on category (Not SEO opti)
By , for WP 4.3.1

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.
Regards.

It's OK, but not great
By , for WP 4.2.4

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!

Good intentions, bad results, zero suport
By , for WP 4.2.4

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.

many options are not working
By , for WP 4.2.2

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.

Want to give it 5 stars...
By , for WP 4.2.2

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.
