Calendar not showing up

Posted: September 5, 2019 at 4:00 pm

We have just installed Event Espresso and Event Espresso – Calendar (EE 4.3+). Created a sample event and added a calendar shortcode [ESPRESSO_CALENDAR] to a page but the page is showing blank.

Went through Troubleshooting the Event Espresso 4 Events Calendar add-on with no luck so far, maybe we are missing something.

Please, we need your help.

Thank you.

Can you share a link to the page where you have the calendar shortcode, so we can investigate?

Thank you.

I checked the source of the page and it looks like the shortcode was added onto the page via a page builder.

Is it possible on your site to make a page without using a page builder, like just use the regular WordPress editor instead?

The page was made with Gutenberg. We don’t use the classic editor. Should we try that one?

Gutenberg is the regular WordPress editor as of WordPress 5, and it’s fine to use that. Are you adding the shortcode to a shortcode block?

That’s strange. I can advise to deactivate all plugins, and temporarily switch to a default theme (the default themes all have names that start with “twenty”). Then after you do that, you go and start a new page, and place the same calendar shortcode on the new page. Does the calendar display on that page?
