So I was updateing all my sites and unwittingly selected update all. If you are using this plug in and have one of the earlier versions DO NOT UPDATE! It will mess up your site. Or more specifically it will mess up the calendar view. There are ways to fix it and if you are good at code or want to try to search for line 609 in the php file go for it. Not an option for me. I need to find some place I can get version Version

This plugin has grown past the development capabilities of the people maintaining it. I have the pro version, and it’s basically one guy with very basic troubleshooting skills. When a true bug is found, there’s no resolution and worse yet, no timeframe for resolution. A while ago, they did a major upgrade and changed their database structure. Reporting isn’t backwards compatible across that database change. If you look at your database, you see what they’re doing with tables- wp_em_bookings_metawp_em_bookings_meta_copywp_em_bookings_meta_copy_2 They’re using 16 tables in total to manage this plugin. Complete mess. Super sloppy. I’m very invested in this plugin, but I’m about to jump ship.

This plugin has pretty good functionality for a very reasonable price. But BEWARE! The code, support, and communication are pretty poor, and the docs are hit and miss (and sometimes outdated when they are available).

A potentially great system for managing events, but if something doesn’t work then the support is basically non-existent. Don’t rely on this plugin for anything but a small website where you are able to manually take and fix bookings when you inevitably come across a bug that causes double-bookings/blocks people from booking/doesn’t update online payment status/doesn’t email customers (these are just a handful of the outstanding bugs currently on the support forum that have been ‘with the devs’ to fix for MONTHS). The support in the ‘pro’ paid version consists of a private forum to post your problem to. It is full of people pleading over-and-over again for months to fix fundamental flaws and bugs, and the first line support technician just replying over-and-over that they have ‘raised it again with the devs’. In the meantime people’s businesses are losing custom or having to refund customers because the booking system has done something wrong due to a bug. The only real replies from the plugin authors are where the support technician answers basic functionality questions like “how do I do x,y,z”, but if there is a bug (of which are many and frequent) then there is absolutely no chance of a speedy resolution or any comeback. There is no support email address, no support telephone line, no SLA, no comeback if your site doesn’t work because of a bug…and the limited documentation is out-of-date as well! But, if you just want something to manage events, present calendars, take bookings (with payments if you are brave) then the plugin has potential to be useful.
