    seashy, do you have any events that are in categories? If not, create some and you will then be able to set colors.

    jangw, it doesn't appear that you have this plugin activated. Remember it is a separate plugin from the calendar plugin.

    Believe me Andy, it's not that simple, the plugin is activated. Under Plugins, it shows as activated. Under Events > Settings, it shows Category Colors. There are currently 4 categories with all of them coloured (sorry Canadian habit to spell with "u"). Any assistance would be most appreciated. I don't often give up on a plugin but if doesn't work, there's no choice. Thanks again.

    jangw, can you try deactivating some of your other plugins, see if it works and sequentially activate them. There must be a conflict somewhere.

    I don't see any of the CSS in your page that's supposed to be generated by the plugin. That's why I thought it was inactive.

    Screen capture of Category Colors settings:

    Tried checkboxing Category Legend but still no display.
    Saved changes but calendar remains black with no colour.
    Using WordPress 3.3.1, Technetiumastic theme.
    Sometimes is the version that is not compatible but hoping Category Colors works since it really looks nice. Cheers, Will.

    I'm not sure, but updating WordPress to current release can't hurt.

    There's color here. You should try to set your permalinks to something other than default. That and updating might solve the issue.

    Deactivated then reactivated each plugin one at a time. No change on calendar. Then deactivated all plugins except Events Calendar and Category Colors. Again, no change on calendar. Refreshed calendar in every instance but sadly, no colour. Still black and white world.

    Look at link I posted above. Do you see color?

    Hey, that's another page link. It looks really good. Guess the Tribe page is the wrong page link Events calendar defaults to this page under View Calendar. Did not know there was another page showing colours. Thanks very much.

    Andy, plugin looks and works great - when on the right page link. It is Events Calendar has a direct view link to:
    http://ssachockey.ca/?post_type=tribe_events
    This page shows no colours, so that's where it's misleading.
    However, in the scheme of things, thank-you. Sometimes it's right in front of you but you don't know where to look. Will

    2 things you really should do

    1. In General > Settings > Permalinks set it to something othe than default and save the setting.
    2. Update to WP 3.6.1, there's a lot new especially newer jquery and other things. Besides, it really can be a security risk. Anything properly coded should still work.

    You should also try testing with a default theme like TwentyTwelve just to make sure your theme doesn't have any conflicts.

    Worth repeating, merci beaucoup. Not sure how Permalinks works but will have to read up on it. Again, thanks for quick resolution.
