Notes on Event and Calendar related WordPress plugins

Tried and tested some plugins over the last few weeks..
here, are my thoughts, brief and in no particular order:

Gigs Calendar (v0.4.6)
- issues with timestamps posted to the future (but not with filter turned on)
- no multi-day events
- post created automatically

GigPress (v1.4.9)
- lots of setting (maybe too many)

Events Manager (v2.0rc2)
- not creating “real” WP posts (with post IDs)
- all event posts are on same page (eg: domain.com/events?events_id=1)

Events Calendar (v6.5.2.1)
- simple / good
- fills in actual post content

Events (v2.1.1)
- not creating “real” WP posts (with post IDs)

Event Calendar (v3.1.4)
- just adds dates and times to the edit posts screen

Calendar (v1.2.2)
- buggy (widget seems broken)
- not creating “real” WP posts (with post IDs)

Keep in mind, i’ve only tested these specific versions of each plugin. So, newer versions might include significant improvements over previous versions. Also, don’t take my word for it.. test them all out for yourself ;)

    I think it’s unfair to describe my calendar as bad/buggy. There are many happy users who have no issues at all. If you ask a question in the forums I’m sure someone will be able to point you in the right direction, or if you have indeed found a genuine issue, I’ll be able to write a fix.

    hi Kieran,

    i really didn’t mean to sound rude.. and this was in no way a thorough review. i guess bad was a little overboard so i’ll edit that out to try and keep things fair.

    but, the fact of the matter was that i needed to review all available event related plugins and Calendar wasn’t exactly what i was looking for. As i mentioned, the widget didn’t work as expected and i was looking for a plugin that created actual posts with post IDs, etc.

    anyway, thanks for commenting!
    and i hope these notes don’t stop others from trying each plugin out for themselves.
