This great little plugin does exactly what it needs to - displays events that happened on any date in history. Love it. Thank you.

I run a website researching historical events in my local area. This plugin has been the backbone of the site content. It's been very useful in displaying events for certain days, and also expanding the scope of the data to weeks, months and even centuries. The events are easy to add to the database and I can include links and media in the posts also. The use case for the plugin is quite niche, but if you require the functionality it offers I don't think you'll find a better option.

I don't find a way to use years B.C. Also if the year has 3 digits it's displayed like 0365 which is ugly. I wrote an e-mail with some questions to the author, but am getting no response. For the rest the plugin is ok.

Does the job really well, and the support is awesome. Really fast response and the author even pushed through an update to resolve an issue I had. Very impressive.

Great plugin but my homepage is not in English, so when there are no events it says in English "No Events" which is why I havent published it on my page yet. Are there any way to select my own words when there are no events? Also it would be nice if I could pick my own font size or design as I think it takes a lot of space even with no events. News banner size with color options would be nice. Right now it is very plain.
