Well crafted simple event planner, with nice grid view and customizable templates. When less is more, this plugin is perfect ! Thanks a lot to the developpers !
Shortcodes don't work. Displays list every time. Previous reviewer complained the same so perhaps the latest version of WP broke it. Moving on...
UPDATED April 18th 2020 I won't lie, I have had trouble with this plugin, both in it's coding and functionality. BUT, the developers do seem to be trying to improve it step by step. I can't fault them for that, nor what they are able to offer, without charge. I look forward to seeing where to plugin goes in the future! PREVIOUS REVIEW: I don't have time to spend figuring out how to use over-complicated or too in depth event plugins. I just want to create the event and stick it on my website as quick and easy as possible. And Simple Event Planner almost allows me to do just that. Literally, if all you need is a very bear bones and basic event listing plugin, you won't find much better than this. The only thing holding it back from true Epic-hood is the fact it's almost too basic. There are some things that are missing, at least for a novice non-coder, such as more customization options and recurring events, but hopefully the more people use this, the more time the developers can put in and the better it will get. It's pretty close though. Personally, I'd also consider a paid option, if they can just go that extra mile and fill in all the gaps. Here's hoping. 🙂
