Been using this addon for just over a year and it provides a simple easy to use addition that allows any thread to be added to a calendar with support both tradition page layout calendar and a list view. As others have said Andy offers great support.
Calendar with clean and simple style, exactly what I need. There was small issue but Andy fix this within 5 minutes after my support request.
Andy offers excellent support, after making a suggestion he added the feature in a matter of days. Thank you Andy and thank you for your excellent addons.
I'm re-rating this Add-on with 5 stars because I can now effectively use this on my forum to promote historical events on an annual basis. Take note that Andy will listen to reasonable suggestions and implement them when requested! Thanks Andy for adding this feature, it will be very useful!
Great addon! Well worth the $25 for access to all his mods on his site. Very well done, and very well worth it service. I highly recommend. I suggested a feature, less than 48 hours? Added in!
