Calendar Disappeared Again!

I see about 424 results when search for “Calendar Nt Working”.
This is obviously affecting a lot of users. There are as many solutions as there are questions. Most of these suggested fixes require that I interact with the code. I am not a coder. I am a simple guy trying to maintain a website for my church. I had a lot of confidence in Exvent Espresso. But this is driving me nuts. I want this fixed, or I deserve a refund.

Hi Philip,

I am sorry that you are having issues with the calendar on your site.

We are working very hard here to try and make the core plugin and add on plugins as widely usable as possible but with the WordPress platform being open source and available for anyone to code a plugin or theme,a nd the fact that most hosting servers have minor differences in setup, we cannot guarantee that our plugin will work with everything out there.

And that is usually what the problem is, some sort of conflict with another plugin or theme. Occasionally it may be an issue with our code, but that is rare.

I am more than happy to help you out with the calendar and get it into working order for you.

I cannot see from your site what is wrong as you are currently using an alternative calendar.

I know that the calendar was functional from your previous post regarding the year button, can you explain what the problem that you are having is? If possible reactivate and provide a link to the page with the calendar?

what is happenig now is the Calendar just went away. It was working fine, then nothing. I tried the [Raw] technique, and a few other suggestions from the related posts. I have deactivated and re-activated all Plugins except Event Espresso. Like most website managers, it is very hard when you have this much of your time being sucked up by one aspect of the site. I want Event Espresso to be a solution, not a problem. I have de-activated the alternate calendar.

Hi Philip,

I see the issue, and it is generally caused by the theme adding extra formatting. Looking at the themes documentation, it should support the lowercase [raw] tag.

If you would like I can take a closer look at this, if so, please send login details via

Hi Philip,

I have edited your themes (parent theme) functions.php file. At the bottom was

if ( !is_admin() && function_exists( 'espresso_raw_formatter' ) ){
	remove_filter('the_content', 'wpautop');
	remove_filter('the_content', 'wptexturize');
	add_filter('the_content', 'espresso_raw_formatter', 99);

I have just commented it out. This stops the theme from adding


p> tags around the javascript which was what was stopping the calendar from showing.

If the parent theme is updated, this may need to be redone as the functions.php will be over written.

Leave the [raw] tags in please and if there are any further issues, the first thing I would look at doing is surrounding the shortcodes in [raw] tags to stop any javascript from being formatted.
