Is the category id correct? If you do not specify an Unique Category Identifier then it will auto generate one, that is different to the category name

If that is set correct I will need log in details to look into this

Please send them via

NOTE: login details need to be Admin level.

Hi Terrence,

This appears to be an issue with the cache. I logged in and deleted the cache and the calendar displays the same whether I’m logged in or not logged in.

Hi I concur with Josh, I cannot see any issues. The events such as Heart of Downtown (10th July) are attached to the publictours category. Changing the category makes the calendar change accordingly. I cannot see anything unusual.
