Need a good Event Calendar for a campaign website, got suggestions?

Hi Everyone,

I've only just started using wpmudev.org plug-ins (except the original Smush) and saw the calendar plug-in but it's not the type I'm looking for.

I need suggestions for a totally dependable plug-in that we can use for a political campaign. Money is tight and the timeline is short, so prefer free or at least inexpensive.

We want to use it to post public and social events in the various communities in our House District as well as campaign events.

I'm kind of hoping it would have a calendar showing the day's events, you click it and get more info.

Or the other option is that it would categorize by date and type of event and make a long, chronologically ordered list.

It MUST work well, be easy for non-internet types to understand, and play good with WP and all my plug-ins.

Thanks so much.

    Hello Maggie,

    I hop e you're well today and thank you for your question!

    I can see that you assigned this post to the "BuddyPress Group Calendar". I agree that wouldn't be the best choice for this kind of activities but on the other hand, it wasn't designed for such use as well.

    We do however have another plugin that should meet your criteria in my opinion. I'm referring to our "Events+" plugin. Take a look here please:

    Have you already considered using it? I think it should suit your needs.

    If you have any further questions on this, let me know please and I'll be happy to assist!

    Best regards,
    Adam

    Hi Adam,

    I thought I saw a Calendar/Events plug-in in here once, but when I filled in Calendar in the Search box on the site, it only gave me the other which isn't what I'm looking for.

    I will try the calendar plug-in you suggest in the next several days and get back to you.

    Thanks for the quick reply.
