Newbie Calendar Plugin Question (5 posts)

    Hi,

    Newbie to WordPress and loving it!

    I've looked through the plugins and tried a few...

    What I really want is a plugin that will put a calendar on a page all on it's own that I can let readers who've registered add their events to. It needs to be able to have recurring events, be simple to use (both for me and for the readers). Any thoughts...

    You might like to give my calendar plugin a try

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/calendar

    You can set a certain level of user to be able to access the events management screen such that all users at that level or above can add events.

    The calendar will appear on any WordPress page in which the {CALENDAR} tag appears.

    Kieran,

    I know you're website says you're no longer "open for biz" but your plug in Calendar is perfect for what I need. The problem I'm having is that I'm using the theme Mimbo Pro 2 (a premium theme: http://prothemedesign.com/themes/mimbo-pro/ ) and while the widget works fine, the issue is the actual Calendar page. I created a page (e.g. "Members Calendar"), then when I post the {CALENDAR} tag (assuming I do that in the visual editor?), I get this error:

    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare month_comparison() (previously declared in /home6/mmaeonli/public_html/members/wp-content/plugins/calendar/calendar.php:2141) in /home6/mmaeonli/public_html/members/wp-content/plugins/calendar/calendar.php on line 2141

    Can you please help resolve the issue? It's great otherwise and I really like the colors, categories and the mouseover detail. Thanks!

    This is a function defined within my calendar plugin. Because it is defined within another functiuon, it will only get loaded when that function is called (ie. when you add the tag).

    What seems to be happening is that your theme or some other plugin you are using also has a function named month_comparison(). This means that when you add my calendar tag in, there is an attempt to load a function with the same name and thus causing the error.

    To fix this you should firstly try deactivating all your plugins and then activating calendar and adding in the tag to a page (you should use the code editor not the visual one). If that doesn't work then your theme will be to blame.

    If it does work you then need to begin activating your plugins one by one and checking for the error. When you activate a plugin and get the error, that plugin will be the one you want to get rid of.

    Hope this helps
