Updated Calendar, Sept. and Oct. lay on top of each other.

You can see the calendar here:

It is set to Month view. I am seeing both Sept. and Oct. at the same time. Once you hit the previous or next buttons on the calendar, everything is reset to normal. And when I go back to look at Sept., the calendar is fine. It is only when the calendar initially loads that the two months lay on top of each other. I have changed the calendar height to 600 and 750, and nothing has changed. I am using WordPress 3.4.2 and event espresso 3.26. I tried it in chrome, safari, and firefox on a mac. All the same.

Hello Lee,

Yes thats an odd one, I’m thinking it’s a jquery issue, perhaps a conflict somewhere. Have you installed or changed something recently? Have you tried deactivating the plugins and bringing them back one by one and seeing if one causes the issue to occur?

Lee, can you check to see if you have calendar images enabled? If so, disable it (since it doesn’t look like you’re using it). I’ve only ever seen this issue with calendar thumbnails.

Thanks for the help. Unfortunately, I was not able to solve the problem.

Calendar images are turned off. I deactivated and reactivated my several plugins, and nothing helped.

I looked through the tags in Firebug on Firefox, to see what scripts my page was calling. The only ones I was not able to deactivate with plugins, we the core WordPress scripts and my theme scripts. The theme I have installed, has a jquery based slider. It also has flowplayer and super fish installed. I don’t use the last two feaures, but I do use the slider on the front page and a couple other pages. Could this be it? How would I deactivate the scripts? Thank you!

I asked about calendar images because this is a known issue with the images on some themes. I’ve never seen this without the calendar images, however. You might try using an older version of the calendar. Here’s a link to Espresso Calendar 1.11 (the last version before 2.0):

The calendar, by default, shows expired and closed events. Which is what I want since only some events require registration. But I am seeing expired events, no matter if I have the show_expired=”true” short code or not. If I don’t want to show them, I have to place show_expired=”false” shortcode. I am going to set it to false for now. However, my director wants all events shown on the calendar, to show how much is going on in our organization. But it will help lessen the confusion.

I was using the old version, but loved the css accessibility added in the new version. Before, I was doing it on the back end. Especially color coding our first day classes. This was a feature assigned to me and then your plugin made it easier! But if I have to go back, I will. Hopefully this bug can be fixed in the next version.

I am also noting, that in the general settings for event espresso, when I set “Events expire on registration end date?” to No, I do not get my unexpired dates added to the Calendar.

I’m going back to the old plugin since no one seems to have an answer. Just curious, is there a solution for when the calendar images are turned on and the overlay happens? Maybe I could used this solution as well? Thanks.

Hey Lee,
The only console error I’m seeing is from

.mainnav li {background:url(red/bgr_menu_divider.png) repeat-y 100% 0; font-size:12px;} 

needs to be changed to be an absolute path. Depending on how your theme is adding it’s scripts to the page, you may be able to add some lines to the calendar php code to de-enque the themes scripts from the page.

Calendar works now in version 2.0.3. Don’t know what it was, but it works! 🙂
