Didn't get any support for something simple
By , for WP 4.6

Was asking and waiting for 2 days to know how i could change some certain colours. Only left disappointed cuz my question gets ignored.

Good but not perfect
By , for WP 4.5.3

I was disappointed in the settings options. There should be a more users friendly way to customise the form itself. It would be easy to add that to settings.

Community Event:
Missing pop-up form options for adding events. Why a new page for Community Event?

Problem with consistency?
By , for WP 4.5

The plugin is interesting, but look at the massive support threads open... most of them unresolved. Maybe its a problem with the plugin programming consistency.
(The same review still true for me, but I'm adding one more star since the plugin is nice *when it works* - unfortunately, had more problems after)

This plugin would be great if it didn't slow down the website so much
By ,

This plugin and I have a love hate relationship. Before there were some serious cache issues, with the cache growing to over 20GB on my site. Now it seems to be something else. My whole server is being bogged down by this plugin. All of the websites hosted by this server are experiencing intermittent 504s and extremely slow webpage loads. I think I am finally going to have to look for another plugin to run on my website.

Hard to customise

Really hard to customise, and go outside the way...It bug a lot when you want to create your own construction (absolute necessary to do it inside the loop for example), too bad... :)

Problems with WP Version 4.5
By ,

It worked great but now with the new version of WP 4.5 I am having problems showing single events in the list. Could you please solve this issue. If you do, I would give this amazing plugin 5 starts without doubt.

Impressed with functionality, but my single need for recurring is not met
By , for WP 4.4.1

I am blown away by the functionality of your Events plug-in. It is BY FAR one of the most beautiful things I have encountered.

Sadly, I cannot use it.

95% of what I post is recurring, and other Calendar/Events options allow me to put an item in once (eg Storytime for Kids, Community Meals, Al-anon, etc) and then run it for the year. I realize the recurring functionality is available in the pro version, but I don't buy anything until I've tried it, thoroughly. And then if it works for me, yes, I buy.

I am not about to manually input 50 items, 52 times, to test run a plug in.

Incredibly beautiful plugin though. Wish I could use it!

Works for a small site but spport is abysimal
By , for WP 4.4.1

Had an issue with the calendar plugin and it took over 3 months to address an issue of events not recurring as they were designed. Developer kept closing tickets and marking them as resolved. Note that I paid for the pro version and the support wasn't much better than the free plugin. Support forum keeps timing out so you can't even post your replies.

This wouldn't be bad for a hobbyist site but I wouldn't use it for a production site of any kind.

Used to be great
By , for WP 4.3.1

This calendar plugin used to be amazing. Since the last couple of updates it has fallen apart. I would still suggest it, but it is a bit of a pain to deal with all of the current bugs.

Awesome
By , for WP 4.2.5

It's awesome but free version without widget calendar ;/
