All-in-One Event Calendar
[resolved] Cannot Edit or Change (Some) Event Details (61 posts)

    Posted 2 years ago #

    I'm using WordPress 3.2.1 and 1.0.4.

    There are several things broken right now:

    1. I cannot change the publish date or time of an event.
    -- Clicking on "Edit" next to "Published on..." does nothing

    2. I cannot add a category while in Event > Add New (writing or editing an event).
    -- clicking on "Add Category" does nothing

    3. The "Update" button at the bottom of the Add/Edit Event page does nothing.
    -- Why is there another "Update" down there that does nothing when there's one off to the right?

    4. Limit calendar display by category?
    -- I still haven't figured out how I can get the calendar to only display one or a few categories and not display certain categories. Normally other calendar plugins handle this via [shortcodes]. Unfortunately, there's limited documentation so I have no clue what the shortcode is and is this is even possible.

    5. Breaks Fluency Admin Pop-Out Submenus
    -- Fluency Admin plugin has a pop-out menu for the submenu items. While editing a Event Post or adding an Event Post, the pop-out menu no longer works in Fluency Admin.

    6. Category Filter doesn't quite work right in Agenda view.
    -- The category filter partly works in Agenda view. In that, if I select a category (or categories), that category of events will be display. Other categories that aren't selected, those events aren't displayed BUT the date (div?) block is still shown. This makes it look like there is an event on that date. I rather have that entire date block hidden if that category/categories of events are filtered out.

    I disabled every other plugin and none of them are interfering with this plugin.

    Found more problems:

    7. Unable to change visibility setting in Edit/New Event page.
    -- I am unable to change the visibility setting of the new event or editing an event.

    8. Unable to set how long recurring event occurs for.
    -- There's is no option to set the length of the recurring event. Also given a recurring event posting, I am unable to set a beginning and ending date and time for each individual event of the recurring event. Example: if I want to set up a meeting from 8 am to 9 am on Mondays and have it repeat only on Mondays for two months, I cannot do it. Same goes for private meetings that recurring at a certain interval only for a period of time. If I try to create a limited private event post, it results in #9 and #10 or a daily recurring event from the start date to the end date I set.

    9. Never-ending recurring private events are missing proper start date and time.
    -- After I post a recurring event that doesn't have a end date and when I go back to edit the event, the start and end dates and times are set to 1/1/1970 rather than the start date and time I original set for the recurring event.

    10. Events where linked post is set to "Private" no longer visible on calendar.
    -- This is probably the single most frustrating "bug". If I try to create private events where the post is set to "Private", the event has #9's problem and disappears from the calendar (even from admin view). The event no longer shows up on the frontend calendar, nor in agenda frontend view.

    For some reason, Firefox does not want to play nice - it's moving the calendar toolbar to the right on my site (rocklivegear.com it's a sandbox domain of mine.) Safari, Chrome, IE all look fine on my PC and my Mac. Any suggestions?

    Works great for me...!! This is exactly what I was looking for!! The only thing I'd like to suggest is adding a widget to display an agenda of upcoming events.

    Thanks for the great plugin!!

    @ Rik,

    Great. Haven't found anymore problems yet. Will the Monday update address everything or just some of the issues above?

    @ ritabaumann,

    It looks like a theme issue. It doesn't look like the content wrapper for the page is containing the calendar (and the calendar is breaking out of the container).

    It looks like the calendar is organized via a TABLE and the theme might have some CSS properties overriding that default TABLE tags (table, tr, td, etc) and causing the calendar content to break the container and be some exaggerated width.

    A quick method of determining of the theme is to blame is to switch your theme back to default WP themes: Twenty Eleven or Twenty Ten. If the calendar doesn't break in either of those, then more than likely your current theme is to blame.

    (I don't have your problem at all. I'm using Mystique theme on my site: grscgaming.com)

    @Acreo,

    It looks to me like most of the bugs you've reported relate to JavaScript-based actions. #1, #2, #3, #5, #7 - all of these things rely on event handlers that are registered during a successful initialization of JavaScript code. When there is an uncaught JavaScript exception upon load, however, those event handlers will not be registered because the interpreter was interrupted.

    Since we haven't been able to reproduce this behaviour - a JavaScript exception upon that page's load - it's possible you're using a browser/OS combination that we haven't fully tested yet. What browser, browser version, and OS are you using? Also, the keys to your WP dashboard may be needed if we find we still can't reproduce it on our end.

    As for the second Publish button, that's just an option on the settings screen, which you can turn off. We had this feature request by one of our clients who wanted to make it easy for their less savvy users to contribute events. (The other publish button isn't obvious if you've already scrolled down on the Add a New Event screen.)

    A limited calendar display per-category using a shortcode is a great idea for a feature. We'll add this to our request tracker.

    We apologize for the limited documentation - some unexpected bugs popped up shortly before our launch date and took priority. We'll be adding to the documentation on an ongoing basis, and we appreciate your patience.

    I'll look into your recurrence-related reports shortly. I'll also check out #10 - I'm a little unclear on what you mean by "linked post" but maybe I'll figure it out with a little testing.

    Thanks,

    @ Acreo,

    1. Can you confirm that you can change "Published on" on a normal post?
    2. Can you confirm that you can "Add Category" on a normal post?
    3. You can turn the "Update" button at the bottom of the page from Settings. Make sure that "Display Publish at bottom of Edit Event form" is unchecked (default state).
    4. This is not supported yet, we expect to add it in the next release which will happen very soon.
    5. Just tested latest Fluency Admin with default WP 3.2.1 and the submenu items are working on my end. You said that you tried to disabled all plugins and that didn't work but if it is not too difficult then can you list the plugins that you have enabled on your WP install? I am suspecting some sort of a JavaScript error that happens on Add/Edit event page, which will also explain items 1 and 2 from this list.
    6. Added to the list of bugs, we will fix it in the next bug release (1.0.5).
    7. This is related to the items 1, 2, 5 from this list. When we fix the items above I expect that this will also be fixed.
    8. Lets consider the following scenario: A meeting from 8 am to 9 am on Mondays that repeats only on Mondays for two months
      • Start date/time: 12 September 2011 @ 8:00am
      • End date/time: 12 September 2011 @ 9:00am
      • Repeat: Mondays
      • End: On date
      • On Date: 9 November 2011

      Let me know if this doesn't work for you.
      We know that there is a lot to desire in terms of setting up recurrence events but I can assure you that we are working on it and a release that will fill the gap is on its way.

    9. Can you post the start/end date and time that you used as well as the recurrence rule that you set up?
    10. Added to the list of bugs, we will fix it in the next bug release (1.0.5).

    Thank you very much Acreo!
    You've been very helpful and I am looking forward for your reply that will help make All-in-One Event Calendar plugin better.

    What browser, browser version, and OS are you using?

    I'm using Firefox 6.0.2 and running Windows 7 Professional 64-bit with Service Pack 1 and all of the latest updates.

    1. Can you confirm that you can change "Published on" on a normal post?

    Yes, I can confirm I can change the "Published on" on a normal post.

    2. Can you confirm that you can "Add Category" on a normal post?

    Yes, I can "Add Category" on a normal post.

    3. You can turn the "Update" button at the bottom of the page from Settings. Make sure that "Display Publish at bottom of Edit Event form" is unchecked (default state).

    Ah, I see it. Unchecked. :)

    4. This is not supported yet, we expect to add it in the next release which will happen very soon.

    5. Just tested latest Fluency Admin with default WP 3.2.1 and the submenu items are working on my end.

I am suspecting some sort of a JavaScript error that happens on Add/Edit event page, which will also explain items 1 and 2 from this list.

    Hmm. Well this is interesting if it's a JS issue (seems a lot of plugins have JS problems).

    Here are the plugins I'm currently using:

    1. Akismet
    2. All-In-One Event Calendar Plugin
    3. Blog in Blog
    4. Custom Admin Branding
    5. Custom Post Donations
    6. Fluency Admin
    7. Global Hide/Remove Admin Bar Plugin
    8. Google Analyticator
    9. Jetpack by WordPress.com
    10. MapPress Easy Google Maps
    11. MCE Table Buttons
    12. Members
    13. NextGEN Gallery
    14. Pierre's Wordspew
    15. Plugins Garbage Collector

    21. Viper's Video Quicktags
    22. WordPress Database Backup
    23. WordPress Download Monitor
    24. WP-UserOnline
    25. WP System Health

    6. Added to the list of bugs, we will fix it in the next bug release (1.0.5).

    Okay.

    7. This is related to the items 1, 2, 5 from this list. When we fix the items above I expect that this will also be fixed.

    Okay.

    8. Lets consider the following scenario: A meeting from 8 am to 9 am on Mondays that repeats only on Mondays for two months
    Start date/time: 12 September 2011 @ 8:00am
    End date/time: 12 September 2011 @ 9:00am
    Repeat: Mondays
    End: On date
    On Date: 9 November 2011

    Let me know if this doesn't work for you.
    We know that there is a lot to desire in terms of setting up recurrence events but I can assure you that we are working on it and a release that will fill the gap is on its way.

    When I initially set up the event, I don't see "End" or "On Date". I only see the options above those two.

    9. Can you post the start/end date and time that you used as well as the recurrence rule that you set up?

    I used this for one meeting as a test:

    Start date/time: 16 September 2011 @ 1:00 pm
    End date/time: 16 September 2011 @ 4:00 pm
    Repeat: Weekly (also tried with Fridays)
    (The last two options do not show up for me.)

    10. Added to the list of bugs, we will fix it in the next bug release (1.0.5).

    Okay.

    Hi @Acreo,

    Regarding items #8, #9 - the recurrence form fields also depend on JavaScript to function. It seems there is a JavaScript error on the Add new Event/Edit Event screen that is causing a myriad of problems for you. Are you familiar with debugging JavaScript? We will probably need the exact line of code that is causing the error to get any further, which you can find out from Tools > Error Console, or using Firebug.

    Thanks for your reply,
    Paul

    Really Great plugin, guys! Nice in every way. I would like to suggest two features that would be very helpful to me. One is a "Nice to Have" and one may cause the client to have me search for a new calendar.

    a) The "Nice To Have" would be the ability to customize the Date format. I enter my dates in MM/DD/YY format and do not see a way to specify it. Currently it seems to only accept DD/MM/YY format.

    b) It would be nice to have a link to the event website. This is the one that may cause me to have to find another Calendar Event control and I would really hate to do that since this control is really great.

    @David,
    a) Good idea; there should definitely be the option to specify dates in US format
    b) That should be easy enough to add. But until we do, can you get by with just inserting a hyperlink to the website in the event's description?

    According to FF Error Console:

    "show_end_fields is not defined" Line 218.

    Hope that helps.

    I'll also second Suggestion (A) by David Silverlight. I can't stand the DD/MM/YYYY formatting (as I also live in the U.S.).

    BTW, you guys are also doing an awesome job of responding to questions very quickly.

    Yeah, I think that a hyperlink can be a fine workaround for now and can tell my client that it is planned for an upcoming release. (hopefully soon? :) )

    One other suggestion that I have is to have a way to include "Next x Events" on a page somehow. That is another current feature that the client would like for me to be able to implement. On the homepage of the site that I am trying to relaunch, they have a paragraph about the site having a comprehensive listing of current events and right below it the next 5 events are listed. Is there a shortcode for that and/or is there a place in the documentation that shows the shortcodes that are associated with the plugin?

    Hi David,
    Thanks for the great feedback.
    The plugin doesn't support shortcode at the moment but we will add some shortcodes in next releases.
    We have a dev release of the plugin which includes non-minified js and css files loaded with descriptive comments. If you want to work on your own to implement the feature your client wants then drop me a line and I will provide you with a link to our dev release. Of course, if you are not able to continue on your own then you can use our customer support page to get our professional help.

    Hi! At first, thanks for the great plugin, one of the best!
    But, using v1.0.4 with WP 3.2.1 i've found some problems:
    1) Localization. I've added initialization of I18n engine and made .po and .mo files, it working, but not all strings are replaced by translated and i don't know why.
    I can help you with Russian locale and send to you all my additions to your plugin :)
    2) I can't use CKEditor for edit events (it's not loading)
    3) Highly need a option to customize date\time formats

    Hi Andrsp,

    • Could you sent your additions to our support page. You can attach files, when posting a ticket. You can also send your translations and we will look into the problem. Thank you so much for contributing!
    • Just tried CKEditor on WP 3.2.1 and it works for me. Perhaps my CKEditor settings differs from yours but it could also be a browser issue. What browser are you using?
    • This will be added in the next release. Thanks!

  25. Acreo Aeneas

    Hmm, it's fixed most of the issues above (one or two were for future releases as "features"), but introduced some new ones:

    When adding or editing an event:

    Click on the start/end dates brings up a pop-up (JS?) calendar. When I select a new date (in the future or past), then click out of the calendar (to close the pop-up), and then click back on the date, it exhibits some funkiness:

    1. The "highlighted" date is today rather than the selected start or end date already in the field.

    --- Can we have the selected start or end date highlighted as well in a different color? This way we can satisfy the need to know the "current" date as well as highlight the start or end date of the event on the pop-up calendar.

    2. Once I've selected a start date and time, the end date and time in 1.0.4 would auto change to the same start date but just 15 mins later. In 1.0.5, it sometimes changes to the day before on a completely different time.

    3. In trying to set the end date and time, I sometimes have to do it twice at least before the date/time keeps.

    4. (This is more of a behavior change I feel makes more sense.) When I select a future or past date (for start date/time), the time auto sets to my approximately 11:45 pm. For the end date/time, it sets it to the following day at 12:45 am. Rather than having it set to those two dates and times, I feel it would be better to set the start time to 12:00 pm and have the end date be the same as the start date and the time set to 12:15 pm. The reasoning here: it's easier than having to scroll all the way back up or all the way back down the times list to find the time I want.

    5. (David's US date formatting) Still formatted in DD/MM/YYYY instead of giving us a choice between that and MM/DD/YYYY. Not sure if this was for a future release or supposed to be in 1.0.5.

    When viewing the calendar:

    6. The day of the week should be spelled out all the way (looks more professional). Instead right now I see a three letter abbreviation rather than the full day word. For example, I see: "Sat, October 1 @ 10:00am - 4:00pm" instead of "Saturday, October 1 @ 10:00am - 4:00pm".

    I know we click on the event from a visible calendar, but on the event post itself, there should be a year. So it should read: "Saturday, Month Day, Year @ Start Time - End Time". This, I feel, is mandatory for repeating events and general non-repeating events. Often times, my members will share the event post link (rather than the calendar page) with other members. They could easily be lost and confused wondering what YEAR the event is supposed to take place on.

    Additionally, to make it easier to read, could we have a space between the time and the "am" and "pm"? Also could we have a choice between lowercase "am" and "pm" and uppercase "AM" and "PM"?

    That's what I've found so far. Will post more if I find anything else.

    Hi - this is a great plugin, I love it! It's so much better than the other plugins I've tried, and I'm happy to be in on its first steps.

    I had a few suggestions for (hopefully near) future updates...

    - I second the request for a website URI field. I won't be using the post description area for all of the events, and it would be great to have a dedicated field for websites.

    - Is there shortcode yet that would allow us to post, for example, "featured events" (from the "featured" category) on a separate page or in a slider on the homepage?

    - The Google maps really slow down page loading... Would there be a way to add a "see the map" button so that the map would only load when a user wants to see it?

    - Choice between a 24 hour and 12 hour clock (for international users)

    I'm playing with it, and am anxiously awaiting new developments!

    @Acreo,

    1. That's a good idea. We didn't code the date pop-up plugin (it was an open-source one we found and liked), but we can certainly modify it so that it's a little more intuitive. I've added it to our task list.

    2. I'll need a more specific example of this to reproduce it, since this is not the behaviour that I see. The following is the intended behaviour, and is what happens when I play around with it: When setting the start date/start time, and the start date/time fields lose focus, the end date and end time are automatically adjusted so that the event's previous duration remains the same. The default duration for an event is 1 hour.

    3. I haven't been able to reproduce this behaviour yet. Perhaps it's a Windows-specific thing. When I have a chance I'll get my Windows laptop up and running to see if that's the case.

    4. We based the default start time on that used by other popular calendar systems. The current behaviour is the same as in Google Calendar, MS Outlook, and others, and I think we'd prefer not to deviate, if possible, lest we risk confusing those used to this behaviour. I understand your reasoning, however, from an efficiency point of view. I suppose we could make "default start time of noon" a setting, at the risk of cluttering the settings page... I any case I'm afraid we'll have to put this one a little lower in our priority list.

    5. It's currently scheduled for 1.1. We'll try to move it up to 1.0.6. More requests are coming every day and we're trying as best we can to satisfy the most urgent requests first. It sounds like this is a pretty urgent one though. Our development team consists of only Canadians and Europeans, so we didn't even think of this - sorry!

    6. The formatting was based on Google Calendar (which uses the short form of weekdays as well as omits the year) and trying to squeeze a lot of information into a small space (say, when an event starts at, say, 6pm on one day and ends at 2am on the next). However, you make a good point, so we should figure out other ways to fit everything in there. The best solution is probably to provide a few date format options in Settings - I'm adding it to the list!

    @bowoolley,

    Website URI field request noted.

    There are no shortcodes available yet. We are planning to add shortcodes for embedding custom filtered views of the calendar in pages. It wouldn't make sense for us to implement our own slider into the plugin since so many good ones already exist for WordPress. I guess the question is, how can we let other WordPress plugins "see" the event posts as if they were normal posts? We already have a task in place for 1.1 to give the admin the option to list event posts among other posts and within RSS feeds if they wish. I will update this task to make sure we do it in such a way that other WordPress plugins that only know how to handle regular posts can also see the event posts.

    Google Maps: Valid point, however there will be those who wish to have the map displayed by default, without requiring a second click. So we can add this as an option - though we might put it off until 1.0.7.

    24-hour clock: We'll integrate this into Acreo's request for #6, basically giving the blog admin the option to format dates and times however they wish.

    Thanks for the feedback,
    Paul

    We are planning to add shortcodes for embedding custom filtered views of the calendar in pages.

    The most important feature on my list right now since some events I don't want the public to see (registered or not).

    I suppose we could make "default start time of noon" a setting, at the risk of cluttering the settings page... I any case I'm afraid we'll have to put this one a little lower in our priority list.

    That's fine.

    I'll go through these again. Maybe a issue on my end or something I missed. Unfortunately, I don't have a Mac system to test these on. Only Windows machines and a Linux VM.

    Really looking forward to 1.1.0 considering the new features and changes.
