Calendar Plugins for WordPress


I’m sharing my knowledge on popular WordPress plugins in various categories. Today, I’m taking a look at calendar plugins for creating a calendar on your WordPress site.

I had a use case recently, that required a calendar to be added to a WordPress site, the calendar was going to be used to show dates for cycling rides. The Calendar would make it easy for visitors to find “cycling rides”. So I kicked off a research session, in which I collected information about the most popular from the WordPress Plugin Repository.
