Calendar widget not showing on regular pages

Hi there,

I am using the Calendar widget on one of my sites. It works fine when I’m looking at the registration page for a single event. But there’s no HTML generated in the source code on other pages of the site. What could I look at to get an idea of what’s wrong with my setup?

Can you give us an example of a page where it is happening correctly and an example where it is not happening correctly?

Hi Garth, sorry for the delay. Our dev site is currently visible at

The calendar widget is located in the footer, and it’s working fine on (page template using one of the shortcodes)

but not on

(the footer region where the calendar is supposed to be is just empty).

Would you be able to see why this is happening?

I’m getting this as well. The Calendar Widget only displays on posts. It doesn’t display on other page types, i.e. page, archive etc.

Best regards, Lloyd Borrett (for Andrew Clarke)

The only reason it would display on your other pages but not your about-us page is if you had set that page as your calendar page in the widget settings.

calendar page

That field takes either slug (e.g. about-us) or ID (e.g. 2), and should only be the page you are using for your calendar (if you don’t have the full calendar displayed on a page, it can be blank).

@Lloyd/Andrew can you post a link to where the calendar is displaying/not displaying?

I can’t see any evidence that the calendar widget is on any page on your site. Can you confirm that the widget is in one of your sidebar locations?
