Tall day columns

Anyone having issues with the calendar view. The day columns are really tall. Events in each column aren’t aligned to the top.
The div inside .fc-day-content has an inline style height set to 2693px. Other columns have different height values. If I force the height to be “auto” they all collapse and overlap.

I’ve tried previewing a different theme, I set up a page not using the page builder.

Using DIvi theme. plugin and set up info below:
WordPress Version: 5.7.2
PHP Version: 7.3.28
MySQL Version: 5.5.5
Event Espresso Version: 4.10.12.p

Hi there,

This is happening due to a bug in a library we use for the calendar, it isn’t compatible with later versions of jQuery.

When you have events that span across multiple weeks when displayed on the calendar (like yours do) it displays incorrectly as a thin line on the first date, a block on the first day for the following weeks and then as a full block on the final week.

One option to fix this is to use the jQuery Migrate helper plugin on the site:

Add that then go to Tools -> jQuery migrate.

Set the ‘jQuery Version’ option to legacy and save. That should fix the calendar but also means the rest of your site loads the legacy version of jQuery so confirm the rest of the site runficonts as expected.

Thanks for the info Tony,
That seemed to do the trick.

I’d much rather have re-occurring events vs having them expand across multiple days. But I’m patiently wafting for that feature.
