Calendar Displaying Incorrectly

Hi all at Event Espresso πŸ™‚
Really excited about the plugin. Great Job. I’m using EE on my website and the calendar is getting cut off on the right side. I’m totally NOT a developer so if there is a way for you to take a look ( and describe what I might do to fix it would be a big help. If you can walk me through it step by step as if I were 3 that’d be even better! Also when the calendar is in “month” view, an entire week lights up like one big rollover. Is that this the correct behavior?

Hi Mel,

Not come across that before, as such not 100% sure on a solution.

What I would test is to change the way the calendar is displayed.

In the Post or Page where you have the [ESPRESSO_CALENDAR] shortcode, go to the TEXT tab of the editor (its on the right hand side above the main section where you type.)

then wrap the calendar like so


and update the post/page.

What this should do is add a container around the calendar that is 90% of the overall space. Of course feel free to play about with that figure.

I cant say that will fix it, but it will help diagnose the issue.

Regarding the full week hover, again not seen that before. On examining it it looks liek it is a CSS style inherited from the themes stylesheet. You could try adding the following to the bottom of your themes style sheet (Appearance > Editor, first lot of code that appears) or to a plugin like My Custom CSS

table tbody tr:hover td {
    background: transparent;

On a side note, the theme is loading its own jQuery which we do not recommend as it can cause problems with Event Espresso and other plugins. If you are not sure what this means, it may be worth an email to the theme designer asking them how you can load the default WordPress jQuery.

Let me know if you need clarification on anything.

Good Morning Dean & thanks for the reply. I tried both but neither worked. I’m happy to provide a login if someone could take a look. I’m only looking for it to display correctly and for the large Month, Day & Year at the top of the calendar to be black. I’m totally cool to pay them for their time too as this kind of stuff goes above my pay grade pretty fast. πŸ™‚

Hi Mel,

We can take a look at this. I see that you’ve bought a support token. We’ll need admin access to the web site in order to work on this. It looks to me that we’ll need to add some style rules to override what the WP theme is adding to the calendar.

You can send temporary WordPress admin level log in credentials via the contact form on this page and we can get to work on this:
