Ashan and his team offer an outstanding customer support. I contacted them via Helpdesk with an issue regarding Event Maps. They responded immediately and solved everything by creating a small patch fix. Thank you Ashan and team – keep up the great work and this exceptional plugin!!

for Flexibility

I run a local paper that runs multiple calendars. EventOn has a simple layout that my readers can easily understand. Currently, we have over 30 different users who add events to the calendars, and they are able to do so with ease.

I'm impressed with how easy it has been to create and manage calendars with EventOn.

for Customizability

After one year we have to say:

1) Too expensive. Cost off all add-ons (raised in 2018 about 1000%) is too high! About $2000/y.

2) Many functions are ill-conceived. Look at the Event Organizer List (filtering). When You have 5-10 organizers, it is OK, but look at the same list when You have 300! Terrible thing!

3) Only manual updates!

Sorry to hear you found it expensive. All softwares have issues and we are working the best we can fix EventON issues. Thank you very much for using EventON!

for Code Quality

The one and only event calendar plugin that offers for a small price great code and quality design to start with. Available also a wide range of extensions, possibility of upgrade. Experience this plugin and let it be another great event in your life !

for Flexibility

Seems very cool, but 90% of the feature needs to be paid apart, booking (65€ per year) different price for the same event (35€ per year) etc etc.
Not easy usability...
Pretty upset about it!

I am sorry to hear EventON did not work out to your satisfaction. We are always working on improving the usability of our software and we plan to address your usability issues in future updates.

for Customer Support

Besides being a great tool with high quality, visually as well as UI wise, great support team, very helpful and faat responding. If you are looking for THE plugin to promote events, go for it and its addons, you will love it.

for Feature Availability

If you want to sell tickets to your event, the add-on is EXPENSIVE. It's a sure "gotcha" one won't expect. Be careful!

There is no "Gotchas" my friend! We are very open about the addon prices and we have VERY clearly mentioned in our demo site (with bright yellow banners) and in main site that the addons cost money. I am sorry if you could not see our clear notifications before purchase.

Sorry to hear EventON did not meet your expectations, its not meant for everyone, but we do have demos and backend demos via dev.myeventon.com to test before buying to avoid this situation.

for Customer Support

I purchased this plugin on 02/08 and downloaded and activated it only to find out it is not compatible with my WordPress Theme. I wrote to the author to discuss and maybe get an enhancement update to align compatibility but I have not heard back as yet. I don't even know how to get a refund and cannot use the plug in currently. Should I hear back from someone I will update this rating, otherwise, I am displeased at the moment.

Nicki I am not sure how you contacted us because I do not see any tickets from you in helpdesk.ashanjay.com (which is our customer support area as mentioned in myeventon.com/support). So kindly send us a ticket via helpdesk and our staff would be happy to help you.

This has proven to be a great application for our business needs with a lot of flexibility and great support when you need it.

for Code Quality

A lot is wrong with this plugin. It looks good, for sure, but that's about all. There are so many things wrong with this, as soon as you scratch a bit deeper. Layout? Can't change, not even with CSS (just try to have two columns where the developer has decided you should have only one: you can't change that). Compatibility you say ? Of my 15 websites, the ONLY ONE giving problems with iThemes Sync is the one where I have this plugin running (and despite the instructions one can find to make it work: it does NOT). "Speakers & Schedule" add-on ? A total joke. you can't event re-list topics (e.g.: when time changes): every change you make is added to the bottom of the list, so in practice you have to start from scratch if you want you changes to be inserted somewhere up in the list. RSS-feeds: sorted in the wrong chronological order. Speaking of sorting: the speakers are listed alphabetically ...by their first name (and NO WAY to change that (whatever you try).
Plugin is not compatible with the SG cache plugin (or is it WP 5.03?). My conclusion: it's all about eye-candy, not about being well-coded. And that creates a lot of frustration...

for Feature Availability

To get something super basic, like show all events on 1 page instead of using the Month tabbed view, it's an add-on that costs MORE than the original purchase price.
