    Hi, Can you please share a link?

    You can also reinstall 1.7 by downloading it from wordpress here: http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/all-in-one-event-calendar-1.7.zip

    Delete the folders wp-content/themes-ai1ec and wp-content/plugins/all-in-one-event-calendar/ and reinstall the plugin.

    In 1.7 everything was working fine. So this must be a problem of 1.8

    For the situation where you are locked out, please see this thread:

    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-all-in-one-event-calendar-you-do-not-have-sufficient-permissions-to-access-this-page

    For the google map not showing up, we will have to look into this further.

    Hello,
    I would like to report another bug with the new update of all in one calendar, hopefully it helps debugging this otherwise really really cool calendar:
    so the issues are:
    1, installing the latest 1.8 version of all in one calendar plugin will make your wp blog unaccessible - see how you can resolve this by uploading the AIOC zip file rather than simply adding it from within the wp blog plugin interface http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-all-in-one-event-calendar-you-do-not-have-sufficient-permissions-to-access-this-page

    2, once you write an event your calendar will not show up on the actual event page (but you will see it on the interface) - instead of the calendar you will see an empty place holder

    3, and this is my current, although minor issue: after the 1.8.1 update, all my seo friendly permalinks, and in fact all links on the website have turned into long links:
    this is my default main page url:
    http://budapestrivercruise.com

    which is automatically rewritten as
    http://budapestrivercruise.com/?doing_wp_cron=1343811789.9719049930572509765625
    or the calendar page
    http://budapestrivercruise.com/calendar?doing_wp_cron=1343812494.4301359653472900390625
    and so are all the events
    budapestrivercruise.com/ai1ec_event/night-boat-tours-budapest-river-cruise

    Any ideas?

    1.8 broke the styling of all buttons which made the calendar pretty much unusable. Reverting to 1.7 worked in my case.

    I would appreciate it if the changelog would inform us about all changes that could be a potential risk for deployment. "Branding switch from Then.ly to Timely" sounded harmless to me so I went ahead and installed the update.

    Hi, like a lot of you guys I updated the plugin to 1.8 and it ruined the appearance of the calendar on my website; then I tried upgrading to premium and that fixed the look, but not the functionality i.e. it all looks fine but it won't permit me to see any other view than the current month. As suggested by Timely's FAQ support I have updated again, this time using 'Timely Updater' but this has not resolved the issue either - any suggestions?

    Here's my site's calendar page which is locked in the current month view: http://go-where.co.uk/mountain-biking/calendar/

    I have the same problem with my url rewritten to include '?doing_wp_cron=....', even with my admin page. Is that normal? I am on 1.8.1

    @TopBudapestOrg
    - doing_wp_cron is well explained here(it is not a bug): http://wordpress.stackexchange.com/questions/12777/what-is-this-doing-wp-cron

    @paulmpi
    - either calendar themes were not installed properly, or you don't have wp_footer() call in your footer.php

    @klartext-ne
    - google maps are visible in the latest version

    @gowherescotland
    - check your footer.php file it needs to have a call to wp_footer()

    @fchang
    - This is not a problem, look at http://wordpress.stackexchange.com/questions/12777/what-is-this-doing-wp-cron

    @pvwylick
    - Thanks we have that issue added.

    I looked through that doing_wp_cron fix earlier and I do not have ALTERNATE_WP_CRON defined in my wp-config file but still show the error, any idea what else might cause it?

    thank you, unfortunately, like mackieinva, I have no ALTERNATE_WP_CRON defined in my wp-config file (which I eventually found via my ftp file manager, though I was looking for it for half an hour on the wp admin php .. lame, I know, I am totally not a php programmer just a wp admin searching in the darkness) :)

    Any idea how to sort it out?
    Btw, I am using a genesis framework and an open source child theme on the site.

    I'm not using any particular calendar theme other than what is included in the plugin directory and I do have wp_footer() in the footer...

    I do have a caching plugin installed which could have messed things up but I would only expect this if there were significant changes made in the theme between version 1.7 and 1.8

    I checked to see and the plugin is defining ALTERNATE_WP_CRON.
    It has to be on for the crons to work - we are using crons to update ics feeds and to sync facebook events.
    Why do we need to definite ALTERNATE_WP_CRON?
    - There is a problem in WP core that once fixed will allow us to remove ALTERNATE_WP_CRON from the plugin. The bug ticket is here: http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/8923

    There were a couple changes to templates, yes. v1.8 introduces a new view - posterboard. We made changes to JS so the plugin runs in its own namespace and doesn't conflict with other plugins or themes.
    Upgrading 1.7 - 1.8 shouldn't cause problems and that's why we didn't list any information on deployment. Can you provide a link to your website where you have the styles broken?

    Hi there, I looked through the whole problem again, and I have managed to eliminate the alternate wp cron tags.

    As I have written, and so did mackieinva, I had no alternate wp cron defined in my wp-config file (or in any of the files for that matter). So I decided to add the define to the file. Of course, nothing happened. Then I simply changed the value from true to false, and ta da, the ugly tags disappeared.

    So anyone getting the same results without a trace of the ALTERNATE_WP_CRON defined: you will need to add a new define line to the rest of your defines. Copy this under the many other defines in your wp config file:

    define('ALTERNATE_WP_CRON', false);

    save and check your site if it works. It works, hurray! :) (I have no clue about php, so it was a real trial and error treat)

    ALTERNATE_WP_CRON is defined in the plugin itself. The plugin checks to see if it is defined either way and if not, it defaults it to true.

    The issue is not so much whether or not you have it defined in wp-config because the plugin itself defines it.

    Lines 281 - 283 in /wp-content/plugins/all-in-one-event-calendar/all-in-one-event-calendar.php:

    // Use alternative cron Version to bypass problems in wp_remot_* calls
    if( ! defined( 'ALTERNATE_WP_CRON' ) ) {
            define( 'ALTERNATE_WP_CRON', true );
    }

    This is the reason why if you set define it to false elsewhere, it removes that from your URLs.

    I am having problems getting back to my admin panel after downloading the update (1.83). I have done all of this:

    Try to manually uninstall and upload the program by following the steps:
    1. FTP to your host
    2. Go to wp-content/plugins/ and delete the all-in-one-event-calendar folder (don’t worry this doesn’t delete your events)
    3. Go to wp-content/ and delete the themes-ai1ec folder
    4. Download 1.8 version from time.ly website (http://time.ly/assets/timely-all-in-one-calendar-1.8.zip)
    5. Extract the downloaded archive
    6. Upload the extracted all-in-one-event-calendar folder to wp-content/plugins/ on your webserver using FTP client.
    7. Navigate to your WP Dashabord: http://domain/wp-admin/

    and still nothing… I need this issue resolved immediately. This is a client site and I'm giving a training class for them on how to manage their calendar and blog… but if I can't get into it I'm screwed.HELP
