The problem is originating from the WordPress theme styles setting all h2’s to have an opacity of 0, which makes the calendar month text invisible:

enter image description here

You should be able to override this by adding these style rules at the end of the theme’s stylesheet, or use the my custom CSS plugin to add them.

.espresso_calendar_widget .fc-header h2 {
opacity: 1; 
font-family: helvetica, arial;
font-size: 16px;
}

Thanks Josh

Used your handy editor and pasted the above lines in the box. The side bar calendar on the home page is displaying the month now but the calenader page http://www.ppoc-bc.ca/event-calender is not displaying the month yet must be a similar problem?

That URL you posted was bad. It looks like this one is working: http://www.ppoc-bc.ca/event-calendar/

Sorry about the bad link, the calendar displays but the month does not, any suggestions?

Hi Rob,

I viewed the source of your calendar page and can see the month name (http://www.screencast.com/t/BPte9piQk5). So that tells me that your theme is hiding the output. Possibly the <h2> tags.

By the way. New site looks great!

I looked at the source of your page and the theme is actually outputting the styles directly to the page! http://www.screencast.com/t/BZEo2S5unf

So whatever styles you add to your custom css will just be overridden. You may need to contact the theme developer about this issue. If the theme developer is unresponsive, we can look into fixing it for you. If you would like to go that route, then we will need you to purchase at least 2 priority support tokens.

@rob

Before you do anything, though, try adding an !important tag next to the opacity rule Josh posted above and see if that takes care of it. So:

.espresso_calendar_widget .fc-header h2 {
    opacity: 1!important; 
    font-family: helvetica, arial;
    font-size: 16px;
}

Hi Guys

Appreciate the help on this
I do not do code (well)
I tried your addition Chris, but the calendar still misses the month at the web page.
Will try support from the theme developer now

About the Calendar, it only takes input from the events module as far as I can figure. Is there a way to just enter a post on it directly?
Say I have a notice about a board reports due and just want to have a date and email address to submit to? (without it saying free event!)

Hi Rob,

The calendar will only take events from Event Espresso, but one thing you can do is create an event, then use the “Alternate registration page” feature in the event options to link that calendar entry to a different page on the site set up for the board reports due notice.

got a quick reply back from my Theme developer MY Site My Way

They are great and I would recommend their themes and support ethic (almost as good as yours!)

FYI they said:

Please, add this to your Custom CSS:
.fc-header-title h2 {
opacity: 1;
}
[]’s

All is well with the Calendar now

I think EE did such a good job of finding the issue it was a snap for the theme writer to come up with the patch to the CSS

Thanks again
