Wish you could give privileges to the editor users. By the way, Pictures won't show up on your menu I thought the plugin was getting silenced.

There's no better reason to create something when it's something you know others need but cannot create themselves. Creating from scratch is awesome, nevertheless not re-inventing the wheel saves a whole-lot of time. Improved functionality, following proper development practices, compatible with newest WordPress version, new features added. Works, does what it was meant to do.

Upgrade to version 4.0.

This is a major upgrade, you absolutely MUST save a copy of your current schedule and delete the previously installed version before upgrading as it will wipe-

out the existing database and start a new. You’ll also get an error because WP will be looking for a file that no longer exists.

You may need to replace your schedule display short code to this [joan-schedule]. This is because we re-wrote the database and the plugin and removed all

references to the old database. Applies only to those upgrading from 3.2.1 or lower to 4.0.

Wipes old database, starts fresh, saves database from there going forward.

Removed Template Tag option, we feel the standard display options are sufficient.


Fixed issue in crud declaration.

Fixed security issue.


Added plugin icon, screenshots.


Improved plugin code.

Properly en queued jQuery.
