Calendar Display Problems

Hello EE, I haven’t come across this problem before.

Your calendar is not positioning the days correctly in rows.

Please advise, thanks!

The site is using the jQuery that ships with WordPress.

Here is a link to the malfunctioning calendar page.

Hi Jill,

Have you changed the calendar display settings recently? Have you tried resetting them?

Hi Dean,

I did try resetting the calendar display settings – no change.

I also,

  • reinstalled the plugin
  • Installed version 1.11 and 2.0.1 of the calendar plugin
  • replaced fullcalendar.min with the fullcalendar.min script from Google’s full calendar repository
  • attempted to debug javascript, but found only one error

“dayCntPos is null”
Line 633

which I think has to do with the positioning of the days, since javascript repositions them on-the-fly.

Please advise, this is turning out to be “argh”.

Hi Jill,

It looks like there are a lot of scripts being output on that page by the theme. Have you tried ruling out a conflict with these by temporarily switching to the default WordPress theme? You can do this without changing the theme for non-admins with the theme test drive plugin.

Hi Josh,

I did switch to another theme and the calendar rendered properly. Since changing our theme is not really an option right now, I’m looking for some way to get the EE calendar working. I’ve turned off these scripts:

  • prettyphoto
  • jquerycycleall
  • jqueryeasing
  • supersubs
  • ts-portfolio-fade
  • hoverintent
  • superfish
  • supersubs
    and disabled ts_print_javascript that was printing out more javascripts.

I see that the calendar uses qtips and jquery. What type of conflict should I be looking for? Is there another way to get the calendar isolated from anything that would mess it up?

Hi Jill, Did removing the other scripts make any difference? Another thing you can try is to create a custom page template that has the calendar shortcode in the actual page template code. This way, the shortcode doesn’t get added/processed in the page content. There’s a brief overview of how to do this at the end of the calendar troubleshooting guide: I have ran across a few themes where I found a theme function (that just so happened to not be in use) that I could comment out which resolved any calendar issues. Usually these had to do with altering the_content or even how the shortcodes get parsed.

Hi Josh,

disabling the scripts made the entire calendar disappear. Then, I disabled additional JS from the header and the calendar reappeared in its usual broken state. I read through the wiki documentation and just tried a custom page template as suggested. It parses the calendar as before, but still with the mysterious vertical numbers. I don’t get why it’s not printing numbers across?

Is there some way to hook EE into Google Calendars?

Hi Jill,

It may be related to how the Calendar is completely disappearing when the other scripts are removed. Typically a third party script should’t have any affect on the Calendar if it follows WordPress coding standards.

Another possibility is there may be a style rule overriding the calendar CSS from the theme’s stylesheet, or all the inline styles being output onto the page.

I’m not aware of a way to hook Event Espresso into Google Calendar. It would likely involve writing a script to take the event data from Event Espresso and convert/format it so it could be imported into Google Calendar as a CSV.

I am having the same Error Message,
JavaScript Error: TypeError:dayCntPos is null.
I switched themes to Twenty Eleven and deactivated all the plugins (except for EE) and the error continued to show up. My Calendar didn’t disappear however. Any ideas? I have a lot of scripts running also, but this is the only JS error showing up in the developer tools console.
Thanks for your help!

I spent 4 hours trying to get the EE calendar to work. Turns out to involve a lot of javascript. I quit trying and am using Google Calendar instead. It renders fine. Good luck, mdowdall!

@mdowdall Hi, I just looked at your Faces Calendar and can see no JS error. Is it this one you are referring to?
