Why WordPress Is A Great Website Platform For You! (Part 6)

wordpress-923188_1280We are in week six of our series of why WordPress is a great website platform for you.  Below are the topics we have covered so far:

  1. It’s Supported World Wide
  2. It’s Free!
  3. It’s updated on a regular basis
  4. It is easy to use
  5. Image Sliders

Like last week, we are focusing on specific functionality that can be added without having to have a PHD in PHP.   

The 6th reason that WordPress is a great website platform for you is because:  An Easy Calendar

Most of the websites that we build are church websites or school websites.  Both of these organizations are extremely dependent a well functioning calendar.  In addition, the both have many different groups within their organization, so it is helpful to be able to categorize events on the calendar.

We like to use All-In-One Event Calendar for a few reasons:

  • It is easy to add events
  • Ability to categorize events so visitors can search for events that only pertain to them
  • The upcoming events widget makes it simple to feature the next events on the calendar without any ongoing effort (see livingabundantlytx.com for an example of this widget)
  • Visitors can add events from the calendar to a personal Google or Outlook calendar
  • The developer provides responsive support
  • The developer releases regular updates

What kind of things do you look for in a calendar?  Have you used this calendar or do you have a different WordPress calendar plugin that you like?  Please post your comments below.

If your website is holding back you and your organization, maybe it is time that you looked for a different website solution? Get the conversation started by contacting us here!
