The Custom Event Calendar was a “wish-list” project for Living On The Cheap after we converted to a new network-wide theme. Because of the plugin created by Lee Media Group we are now able to not only automate many of our event calendars (which before took us hours of manual data entry on a weekly basis), but create custom calendars for specific weeks or inclusive of specific events, such as those that are free.
And we haven’t even tapped into the plugin’s full potential, such as allowing readers to search by city or venue. We also have been pleased with Lee Media Group’s ability to “tweak” the plugin and its features as we continue to deploy it to more sites and find more ways to incorporate it into our websites.
In essence, the custom plugin has given our publishers and editors more time to focus on content and marketing. That, in turn, allows us to further monetize our sites and generate additional income. The bottom line is that the Custom Event Calendar Plugin was well worth the investment.
