Ajax Event Calendar
adding, editing events not working (38 posts)

    After updating to WordPress version 3.6 the Ajax Event Calendar version 1.04 does not allow updating or editing events.
    I noticed this one one installation. Everything looks normal but when clicking on a data (in dashboard) the dialog does not come up.

    I checked my test site that had not been updated to the latest version of WordPress and AEC worked normally. I updated and on the calendar page it is no longer possible to add an event or to edit an existing event.

    The author of AEC has not responded here nor to the issue tracker. His last Twitter post was in January 2013. The plug-in shows that it was updated 13 Aug 2013.

    This is getting to be a serious situation for me, my clients want to update their calendars. Do I have to switch to another plug-in? Any recommendations?

    Still no response from author? I need to add events. What calendar plugin did others switch to?

    It works for me in Firefox, Chrome and IE9 (once I switched it to compatibility view)

    Hmm, there seems to be an incompatibility between the SimpleModal jQuery plugin used in AEC and the WordPress build-in jQuery file in (/wp-includes/js/jquery/jquery.js). If you load jQuery from Google, you can edit/view your events (see http://www.ericmmartin.com/5-tips-for-using-jquery-with-wordpress/). However, there also appears to be a CSS (?) problem with the month/year date picker in Internet Explorer.

    Same issue here. Firefox console reports:

    TypeError: jQuery._timePicker is not a constructor

    Sure hope the dev is hard at work fixing this!

    Also this issue is the same for me across all browsers (IE9, Firefox, Google Chrome)

    I'm new to this and have been having the same problem. I thought it was me, not a compatibility issue. If I deactivate Ajax, what do you recommend in its place? I'm using theme twentytwelve and have NextGen Gallery installed.

    After two weeks there has been no response from the Ajax calendar authors. In some other threads disabling NextGen Gallery has been mentioned as a fix. I don't have that installed, so there is no fix for my situation.

    I am testing "All-in-One Event Calendar by Timely" using the free version. It seems to work and hold promise to do what I need. I will have to sell this change to my clients - all their events would need to be edited and moved over - major work!

    Thanks for your post...would you let me know if you experience success with Timely's Calendar?

    Well, the Timely calendar looks nice - integrates nicely on the dashboard. I have not yet figured out how to manage the time for repeating events. On my test site I set the time for "tasting" events as 6 - 7 pm. The first listing is ok, all others show 10 - 11 pm. Take a look at my test site: Demo-Café calendar2 There is also a text minimum else you get garbage in the listings. Some of the Timely calendar is very nice, much is just not ready for prime time.

    If it is basic and it works, that will be good enough for my limited use. Thanks...you site looks great!

    thanks ludwigkeck...got it up and running and am very pleased with the results. I'm thinking what would be fun is if I could replace my regular "posts" that make up my "home" page with the full posting of the calendar posting. Maybe have a slider of current week's activities on the home page...I'll save that for another day, As it is now, I'm posting twice, but until I'm more sure of what I'm doing, I'll leave it be. I have not noticed your "text Minimum" issue. Where did you see that show up? on the detail page per item, or on the calendar itself?

    Glad to hear of your success, Did_U_BU. Take a look on the Timely plugin Settings page. There is a item "Agenda" view. When I tried that it showed all events. Maybe just what you are looking for. The time shift problems seems resolved after I deactivated Ajax and updated the times on my other events. There still is the "minimum text" problem for me. It shows up in the little pop-up when the pointer is moved to an event on the calendar. If the event text is short it shows titles of various items like categories. Not a serious problem - but check your pop-ups to make sure that you are happy. I signed up for the Timely forum (that's where I learned of the time problem). But I can't seem to find out how to create a new topic post there. Since Ajax seems dead I guess we can just continue here.

    Having the same problem, can't do anything with it in any browser.

    You can replace the simplemodal javascript library (wp-content/plugins/ajax-event-calendar/js/jquery.simplemodal.1.4.3.min.js) by this fork from redaxmedia: https://github.com/redaxmedia/simplemodal

    That works for me..
    (IE 10.0.9200, FF 23.0.1, Chrome 26.0.1410, SRWare Iron 25.0.14)

    zenixLR - would you mind elaborating on your comment about replacing the simplemodal js library. I downloaded the file and replaced it on my site, but I am still having the problem everyone else is having. Is there something further I need to do?

    Many Thanks.

    jquery.simplemodal.1.4.4.min.js does not fix this on my site. I suspect there are others. Have moved on to another calendar plugin.

    @tonya9197

    Nothing appeared when I was clicking on events in dashboard or public page. Also got the timePicker issue described above.
    IE and FF were complaining about something "Not implemented" in JScript console. It was the "removeExpression" method used in the js library jquery.simplemodal.1.4.3.min.js

    I went on Eric Martin GitHub repository (original coder of the simplemodal library)
    and found a new version (1.4.4). I tried to replace the current 1.4.3 version by this new one, but with no success: same effects, same cause..
    Looking in the Issues thread on the repository, I'd found this post from redaxmedia that talk about this specific problem.
    So I downloaded the redaxmedia's fixed version of 1.4.4 and it works!

    How to install it?

    Enter the "js" directory in ajax calendar plugin:
    cd wp-content/plugins/ajax-event-calendar/js

    Download and rename the fixed version from redaxmedia repo:

    wget --no-check-certificate https://github.com/redaxmedia/simplemodal/raw/master/src/jquery.simplemodal.js -O jquery.simplemodal.1.4.99.js

    Edit the ajax event calendar main php file:

    nano wp-content/plugins/ajax-event-calendar/ajax-event-calendar.php

    And replace this line:

    wp_register_script('simplemodal', AEC_URL . 'js/jquery.simplemodal.1.4.3.min.js', array('jquery'), '1.4.3', true);

    by this line:

    wp_register_script('simplemodal', AEC_URL . 'js/jquery.simplemodal.1.4.99.js', array('jquery'), '1.4.99', true);

    Flush your browser cache and that's it!
    I confirm that I can edit events or pick dates with the various browsers I mentionned above.

    (Note: For the sake of simplicity, I didn't described how to "minify" the js file but gOOgle is your friend on this..)

    Same issue here! Crap!
    Calendar shows on front end but not in the admin.

    I can confirm that zenixLR's solution above works. Replacing the original simplemodal.1.4.3 with 1.4.4 didn't work, but using Rexamedia's version and naming it 1.4.99 and editing ajax-event-calendar.php file to reflect the version change works.
    Now all recent browsers display properly in front and backend.

    IE8 and IE9 are still messed up which is unfortunate. When clicking on an event from an Eventlist the ajax "Loading Event Form..." popup occurs, but is not populated with the event information. When loading the actual calendar, it still freezes with the "Loading Events..." popup; the calendar remains empty.

    I was having the same issue but noticed in the "official" support forum

    https://code.google.com/p/wp-aec/issues/detail?id=530&colspec=ID%20Type%20Status%20Summary%20Modified%20Reporter%20Stars

    that it seems that NextGen Gallery was causing issues. I noted NG needed updating and did so. All works fine now.

    Just wanted to thank zenixLR for his post.
    I followed the steps and my calendar is now working perfectly.

    Just checked the link supplied by lorax there is now a reply by the author dated 19th December stating:

    I am no longer able to update/support the Ajax Event Calendar plugin for WordPress.

    Alternative Free Calendar Plugins:
    http://www.blazdesign.com/5-free-wordpress-calendar-plugins/

    So looks like we are on our own now!

    Many thanks to zenixLR and others for advice - I may have to replace with an alternative - which is a real pain as I have many events set up...

    Dedicated to AEC plugin as long as it works, as I have not found another calendar with color category bars that cross dates. Example at http://mia.com/miami-events (plus an automatic short list that rolls to the front page!). If anybody finds a calendar with same abilities, please let me know, thank you!

    Never found a gallery plugin that would not interfere with AEC, so no gallery plugins.

    W3 Total Cache plugin, most versions, also interfered, no matter various settings. Quit W3 Total Cache when some info said it may not be a great gain on shared servers -- decided I needed the Calendar more.

    I wrote to Eran in December encouraging (begging) her to come back. Maybe she will someday, or maybe someone else can take over? As a free plugin (much gratitude), I'm guessing the popularity per numerous pleas for tweaks and embellishment became overwhelming.

    Hoping Ajax Event Calendar makes it through the WP upgrade from 3.6.1 to 3.8 -- I've been delaying for fear it may go bump ....
