The Events Calendar is one of the most popular and widely used event calendar plugins on WordPress. When I first became familiar with the plugin about 2 years ago, it was on a website that was coming under my control from a new client.

Initially, I didn’t really see the value in the plugin. But over time, I got used to its flexibility and start taking advantage of functionalities inside of that plugin. That is what has led me here!
