Event Prime has so many features and options (because it very flexible) that you might feel a little overwhelmed in the beginning. Take your time to learn the plugin thoroughly before integrating it into your website and you will be happy you did. I used the ProfileGrid to Event Prime integration extension to allow Group Managers to schedule and maintain events within their own groups. I worked with the Event Prime people to also do some customization work and I am happy to report they were very helpful and did great job!

I have been using WordPress for a long time, and among the different calendar plugins I've tried, EventPrime is the best. It has a lot of cool features that work well and make it stand out.  the paid options give you some extra useful stuff. The people who help with the plugin are really good and know their stuff. Even though there were some problems along the way, the EventPrime team fixed them and now it's the best in every way compared to other plugins. In my opinion, if you need a good calendar for your WordPress site, EventPrime is the one to go for. It has everything you need and is the best choice for all kinds of users.

As the title states, this plugin is not ready for use. The front-end user experience is confusing. The back-end workflow is a nightmare with particularities that the most detailed instructions will not aid. Reporting is abysmal with data clumped within code and missing items. I spend more time looking for transactions than selling tickets. I have used it for two events and the plugin sold the same tickets multiple times in both. The developers have no clue as to how the world of ticket sales operate. Their lack of business knowledge is equaled by their lack of how to make a site work when offering tickets. Simple caching advice would have helped, but not entirely. Unfortunately, this was beyond their capabilities. Their support is a pass-the-buck model and their ads for paid assistance literally cover pertinent information leading one to believe they have no clue when it comes to any user experience. They are asking users to pay for assistance (customizations) but in reality they are asking their customers to pay for their on the job training. The response from Metagaus, the developer, is so bad that I have had to engage third party developers to fix the nightmare this experience has been. Do yourself a favor and look elsewhere. You can fix a technology and you can fix a user experience, but you cannot fix the company providing this plugin. You will have an operational nightmare.

Having used an events plug-in previously I was frustrated by certain limitations, but opted not to purchase the full product because of the excessive cost and the lack of response from the publisher.Having installed the free version of EventPrime I went on to purchase the full (business) version which included the extensions I needed and was a sensible price. I had some initial questions and their support team responded promptly and were a great help. Something I want to achieve which is currently not supported is apparently in the pipeline and it seems they welcome suggestions for improvements/enhancements, which is great!

I have tried emailing several times and have not received any response. We have a pro version of the plugin and it's not saving correctly. It's auto publishing the page. We have the latest versions of the plugin, WP and the theme. Please help ASAP!
