I had an issue with the code where my links would be stripped of special characters and therefore any Chinese words inside a link would be stripped. The team responded after a few days and fixed my issue by giving me a custom code to fix it and saying that it would be fixed in the next update. I am super happy with the results. However, it did annoy me that the only place to leave a message for the teach was on this forum which was IMPOSSIBLE to find. I couldn’t find a proper contact page because everything linked me to their PRO account. It really annoyed me because this was an APP glitch and not a user error. It took me longer to find this forum which I had to create an account for (and wordpress wouldn’t let me create an account for some reason) and overall it took over 2 weeks to get everything done. I don’t see why they couldn’t have an easier method to contact support for people who don’t have PRO. I don’t mind that they charge for support for PRO users, but there should be an easier way to report bug errors such as their own homepage or email. I did not deduct any review stars because of this since their support is really good thus far. I just hope I don’t run into any other issues.

Great plugin, and clever way to monetise additional features. The main thing that’s not great is that although events gets crawed by Google, once the event is finished there is no notification on the event page to say it has ended – which is unclear for readers (even with year added). The only way to be super-clear is to have the event auto-delete – which is a shame as you’re losing google traffic, and also the events take time to manually create in the first place.

I really want to give this a 5 stars but there is one missing feature from the lite (and regular licence) which drops the score. Only Administrators can add events and you can’t give other user roles permission to add events unless you buy both the regular license and an add-on. I understand the cost of developing plugins but at the same time, restricting event addition to only Admin is too restricting as it gives too much access to the website back end to people who don’t need or want the responsibility. The user action plug-in is overkill for just this feature and having a yearly cost puts this out of my budget (which is nothing as I am running a small fraternal organization website as a volunteer) I can see this being part of the regular license if not the lite version. Also, there is nowhere in the eventOn lite documentation that mentions that only Administrators can add events. The action user plug-in page mentions user permissions at the end of its description as this is just an afterthought rather than an important feature.

Nice plugin. But all the description of an agenda/event-item seems to be overruling our websites metadata-description, resulting in Google-search showing the description of a random event as searchresult instead of the metadata from wordpress itself.

For us, this has been an excellent calendar with quite a bit of features built in for a lite version. You can purchase a paid version with more gadgets. For a lite version this packs pretty good amount of capabilities with several different calendar layout styles and support for taxonomies and custom data.

Installed the Lite version of this on a test site I am experimenting before I move on to build or replicate our retiree association site. Although the paid version is not very pricey, that is not available here and is only available for download from codecanyon (which sort of put me off) and tends to drop the rating down a tad. Then there are some addons that will make it functional for us, but very, very, pricey for a non-profit retiree association – this sort of dropped my overall rating a tad more. I reached out to the author via codecanyon /evanto marketplace, and the response was basically asking me to go to a helpdesk link to seek pre-sale answers. This was totally a turn off and brough down the rating a tad more. Other than this I actually like the look and feel of the plugin. Wish the author was more receptive to our needs. I am also reaching out to other plugin developers and one of them has circled back in a reasonable time and has offered a deep discount. Since I still in the evaluation process I have not made up my mind one way or another.
