    A working Calendar Great for upcoming events and happening around your area, it’s a Great addition for any forum community which plans on scheduling events, keeping forum members informed of upcoming events. Exactly what our forum needed. Andy your attention to detail is impressive. Keep up the great work! Without some of your add-on’s our forum would not be as active as it has become. Nor would it be such a cool forum to belong. Thanks for the countless hrs of hard work you have put into all your add-on’s.

    Exactly what I was looking for! Works great. Members can add their events too. Andy was very helpful. Donate to AndyB!

    Migrating from vB to XF, we lost the capabilities of our Event Forums MOD. However, AndyB's CALENDAR add-on came to our rescue allowing us to create a tight integration between an event and a thread to discuss it all in.

    Coupled along with AndyB's RSVP add-on, we now have all the features back that we once had before while running vB!

    An important add-in for our forum. Lets members post events to share with all members. In typical AndyB fashion, it works well!

    This is a must-have for any local community/neighborhood forum, especially with a lot of IRL meetings. It keeps everything organized and in one spot with a reference back to the events board from the calendar itself.

    Thank you very much for this great addon, done perfectly what he has to do. I have a small comment about widgets, is it possible to integrate them into XenPorta 2? If not, is it possible to install sidebar positions while having the model XenPorta 2? Thank you for your reply and thank you again.

    Tried a lot of other addons to do something similar. Finally found something that works seamlessly with topics. I keep repeating myself, but another fantastic job :) Keep up the good work!
