    Forgive me for being dumb on this point, I am still new to WordPress, but I am looking for a calendar that allows someone to request a room via a form/page that can be easily authorized and automatically entered on the calendar. It would be nice to have a “Room Reservation Request” page that would allow anyone to request a room and that request would be sent to an event administrator (not a WordPress admin, but editor level access) to approve the request. On the approval screen, the data has already been entered but allow editing by the event admin so corrections/modifications (such as room requested, etc) can be made if needed. When the event admin approves the request, the event then shows up in the calendar. All of the calendar plugins I have seen so far seem to suggest they can do this, but the ones I have tested don’t seem to have an easy way of implementing it. I must be missing something, or did not setup the calendar plugins I have tried.

    Any suggestions?

    The events manager is exactly what I was looking for. Thanks for the round-up. I was amazed how hard it was to find a good unbiased review of some products out there. It’s like Google decided to show all the low quality results at the beginning this time. Thanks again!

    I did a search for plugins when a client who gives retreats asked to have one on her homepage. (Calendars are a great feature for sites. Surprised I have not had more requests.) Calendars get complicated. They are not as straight forward as I had thought. We are using #2 Calendar: http://thepastures.net in the footer. Instructions and support could be improved. I will bookmark this post and review the next time. Many thanks.

    What’s needed for my ‘too busy’ clients is a calendar that allows emailed-in events. They want to email in their posts, and a calendar that allows import, export or mail-in would be ideal. I’ll take a closer look at the iCal calendars. Perhaps they have these features.

    what about a facebook events – wordpress events plugin integration? any way would work – meaning either you publish and event and there is way to import it semi-automaticaly on facebook – or even better – you create it and manage it on facebook and it’s automatically displayed in your wordpress blog in the appropiate events page…

      I agree Bob. A Facebook events plugin for WordPress would be wonderfully useful. You could add an event and the details and it would push the content to the homepage without having to manual re-enter data (again!).

      With the advent of multiple social hubs online, updating information in multiple locations is becoming a real problem and time drain. I assist published authors with PR and book marketing support online and I need a really good calendar that can list their events in a simple list format, as well as allow you to click on the event title and see more information (such as a blog post that isn’t shown anywhere else on the site). An additional feature to have the event details emailed to the site visitor at a later date would also be great. If all else fails, I guess that I can sit down at the drawing board and create / program one of my own.

      Thanks for the plugin list. I found it very helpful and informative to see what’s currently out there.

    The Events Calendar doesn’t support a shortcode, so you can’t embed it in a page. Its documentation doesn’t even tell you how to set it up. Do you have to create a category and post events there? Doesn’t say. Is there a URL that the events calendar can be seen at? Doesn’t say. Very frustrating. Perhaps you could post instructions about getting it working.

    If the person want to insert the dates in free text field and will be validate from the formats that define by the system. Is it possible? From where I can find out the example where such thing is implemented?

    This is a fantastic list! I personally am a big fan of the Booking calendar and Events calendar, both of them are VERY user friendly and with a few tweaks to the PHP – you can do just about anything. Modded for a Moving company, thank you!

    I recently installed the All in One Event Calendar Plugin for WordPress because of the features. For some reason though, I can’t seem to get the event date and time to update. I’m a newbie, but I thought even I could handle that. Is there some simple thing I might be missing?

    This is extremely helpful, with a good mix of simple to complex event calendars. I have some customers who are less than very computer literate, so some of these simpler ones are just what I am looking for.

    I’ve recently started a webcomic. After viewing some of my favorite other webcomic sites I noticed that they had a ? in every comic posted. My questions are: Do you have to Copyright a webcomic? Is it as simple as just typing in a ? into every comic or do I have to register something somewhere?.

    useless – you must add features that describe at least a minimum of what the plugins can do or, even more interesting, can NOT do.

    Thanks for a very useful post – fyi there are also appointment scheduling tools like book fresh and appointy plugins for wordpress that provide a great user interface – both a pretty pricey though. Going to try and set up something with one of the options above instead

    Thanks again!

    What’s needed for my ‘too busy’ clients is a calendar that allows emailed-in events. They want to email in their posts, and a calendar that allows import, export or mail-in would be ideal. I’ll take a closer look at the iCal calendars. Perhaps they have these features.

    Thanks so much for this review. The Events Calendar (#3) looks very promising. I’ve been looking quite a while for an elegant and flexible event/calendar solution for WordPress and hadn’t come across this one yet.

    I’ll be setting that up and playing with it tomorrow!

    what about a facebook events – wordpress events plugin integration? any way would work – meaning either you publish and event and there is way to import it semi-automaticaly on facebook – or even better – you create it and manage it on facebook and it’s automatically displayed in your wordpress blog in the appropiate events page…

      I agree Bob. A Facebook events plugin for WordPress would be wonderfully useful. You could add an event and the details and it would push the content to the homepage without having to manual re-enter data (again!).

      With the advent of multiple social hubs online, updating information in multiple locations is becoming a real problem and time drain. I assist published authors with PR and book marketing support online and I need a really good calendar that can list their events in a simple list format, as well as allow you to click on the event title and see more information (such as a blog post that isn’t shown anywhere else on the site). An additional feature to have the event details emailed to the site visitor at a later date would also be great. If all else fails, I guess that I can sit down at the drawing board and create / program one of my own.

      Thanks for the plugin list. I found it very helpful and informative to see what’s currently out there.

    The Events Calendar doesn’t support a shortcode, so you can’t embed it in a page. Its documentation doesn’t even tell you how to set it up. Do you have to create a category and post events there? Doesn’t say. Is there a URL that the events calendar can be seen at? Doesn’t say. Very frustrating. Perhaps you could post instructions about getting it working.

    I did a search for plugins when a client who gives retreats asked to have one on her homepage. (Calendars are a great feature for sites. Surprised I have not had more requests.) Calendars get complicated. They are not as straight forward as I had thought. We are using #2 Calendar: http://thepastures.net in the footer. Instructions and support could be improved. I will bookmark this post and review the next time. Many thanks.
