    After upgrading to 4.0.18 and WordPress 3.8 the date picker no longer functions. I see that a bug fix for the date picker was added in 4.0.18 - could it be incompatible with WP 3.8?

    Thanks for the help

    You are right as I'm having the same problem. I noticed though that the update is causing the 'date' field type to be saved as "text" instead of 'date'. If you use inspect element browser tool you'll see what I mean - tweak 'text' for the field type to say "date" and your date picker will appear - until you refresh of course. I don't now how to fix this in the source, but hopefully that helps someone identify the issue. Again "date" field type is being saved as "text" instead of "date".

    Here's a link to a screenshot of what i'm talking about, if it'll work... https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/8100179/Screen%20Shots%20about%20date%20picker%20issue.png

    Seems to be a conflict in my theme. There is a theme update that fixed it (but i have to redo all my customizations).

    jrwmacdonald2 - change your theme to the default and see if the date picker works - if so - something in your theme is conflicting - good luck.

    Yep I changed the theme and sure enough the datepicker worked - some conflict with the theme then... unfortunately I don't have a theme update to fix this. Strange that this would happen - the HTML that is produced is the same regardless of the theme both have type set as text but one works and the other not.

    Thanks superman1203

    If I figure out what i need to change with my theme I'll post it here... perhaps the plugin developers have some clues?

    Actually my theme update didn't fix - turns out (if i understand correctly) The plugin update included grabbing some info from the footer - which I was purposefully not loading on my page - i activated the footer on my page and bam- there was my date picker. So i just had to change how i displayed my custom page.
    Sorry - I know nothing about how to track down conflicts :(

    What theme are you using and can you try changing that page to a different page template within your theme to narrow down (this helped me too)?

    i did donate to the developer to get some "premium support" input and he explained my previous assumption was incorrect (date was supposed to be text - and when i changed it to date - it was forcing the browser picker to appear not the plugin picker) - shows how little I know. He was the one who suggested switching themes to see.

    Thats the info I needed! Thanks. The template on that page was not calling the footer - by design. Changing the page template does the trick. Thanks for the help superman1203.
