Just what I was looking for!

With this plugin, you can style the Google Calendar just as you want it. The step-by-step set-up guides are brilliant.

Thank you!

Tech Support Was Prompt and Very Helpful

By brockstr on August 15, 2023

This is a very good solution for simple calendars where the administrators and collaborators don't need to login to WordPress - they simply use a tool they are likely to be using anyways - Google Calendar. The free version offers enough features for many but you might consider the paid version for more options. Tech Support was excellent and timely. I would highly suggest considering this plugin for your calendar needs.

Simple and stable

By iarcwebdesign on July 10, 2023

The best thing about this plugin is its simplicity. If you don't need much more than an events listing, this is a great option. Content managers don't need to log into Wordpress to add and manage events, they do it in Google Calendar instead. This plugin simply links the two.

Minor-ish cons:

  • Can't add a photo to an event listing (although attachments, such as agendas, etc, can be included).
  • Past events can be displayed, but upcoming events do not automatically show as past once the date has passed -- the past events display parameters must be manually changed.
  • Past events cannot be displayed in reverse-chronological order without custom programming.

Still, if you just want a simple events listing, this plugin is affordable and worth considering. Support is responsive, as well!

So Far Okay

A little wonky to set up, but once done. Good enough.

Really fast and good support

The support is really fast and helpful, very good service - thank you!

It keeps requiring re-authenticaation

By frankiht on June 28, 2023

It works, but I have to redo the [Authenticate with Google] at least once a week otherwise it shows all events in the default color of Blue instead of Red or Green from the shared calendar. I have already contacted support.

Replaces the WP dashboard with a long ad for Pro

By lukework on June 14, 2023

After the update to 3.2.0, the WordPress core dashboard (the first thing you see after logging in) was replaced with a long ad for Simple Calendar Pro.

This is unpredictable and infuriating. I've used this plugin for 6 years now and while I do understand the author(s) financial needs, this is the wrong way to go about things.

Bad practices like global admin panel banners and dashboard replacements need to stop.

Simple and it works

By MaryMak (maxms) on June 7, 2023

Does what it says and it's easy to implement. No issues so far on several client sites.

Not useful

By username201701 on June 6, 2023

This plugin rarely feeds events to the site and just today it caused a critical error and took the website offline. Not worth the headache.
