Have you been looking for a good calendar plugin for your WordPress based church website? I regularly review lists of calendar offerings and am usually disappointed with what I find. Today I reviewed some more plugins and was delighted with one that looked like it would do what a church website would need. The plugin is CGM Event Calendar by Ryan Farrell. The beauty of this plugin is that it is designed to use the new WordPress Custom Post Types.
Here are some of its very cool functions:
- Completely flexible setting of event dates, recurring dates etc.
- Events can be assigned categories. This allows events of a certain grouping can be listed together.
- The calendar of events can be viewed in a monthly, weekly and print format.
- The calendar is flexible and expands to accommodate more or less events.
You can view a screen shot of a test that I did of the calendar.
