Oh Calendar, My Calendar

Posted by: on Apr 25, 2012 | No Comments

We love calendars. But online calendars sometimes do not love us back. And at other times they are down right viscious. Right now I am in a love-hate-love relationship with the following WordPress calendar plug-ins.

My Calendar by Joseph C. Dolson. It’s flexible, documentation is good, and it allows multiple users to log in and add entries. For someone who needs to show calendars in both a grid and a list format, this is a good option. Joseph Dolson is also actively maintaining this plug-in. There many features – including a jQuery month picklist — which may or may not be enabled.

AJAX Event Calendar by Eran Miller. Not as much functionality as My Calendar, but it’s swift and pretty. Because it’s an AJAX based calendar you’re not creating HTML pages which are going to be indexed. That may or may not be an issue for you. But, again, it’s pretty, it’s fast, and it does work on mobile. Download Advanced Access Manager by Vasyl Martyniuk and you can give different users the ability to add entries.
