Facebook Events Widget
[resolved] Event details do not refresh (11 posts)

    The plug in is not refreshing. The time and description of an event on Facebook was changed and it does not reflect on my webpage. Ok I fixed it. But I had to adjust the times by 4 hours in the widget. Why does this have to be changed to make the date post correctly?

    Still not sure why I have to adjust time in hours. Also now it shows events from 1969 and 1970. And adjusting hours does not change time of event to appear properly.

    Hi,
    then is everything ok now?
    when reading facebook events the plugin receives times in a
    specific timezone and I didn't check which yet.
    So for each user to be able to advertise events for his specific
    timezone there is the option to adjust the date by number of hours.

    I am in USA Ny time zone. I checked my WordPress settings. My event says 11:33 on the plugin but on Facebook it is 11:00 am -2:00 pm. Also it shows 11:33-11:33 1969 Is there a fix for this? I can't edit it since its off by 13 minutes and 43 years.

    I re-installed the plugin and updated wordpress to latest version
    I don't have the date problem and your events appear fine on my test site.
    Another thing I can think of is maybe check the date of the server itself?

    sorry but I thought again and time of the server itself shouldn't matter.
    only suggestion i have is re-install the plugin and check time stamps of other stuff in your wordpress

    I'm also having this problem, both on my test machine and on a production server. With the "Adjust events times in hours" set at the default "7" on the production server, an event scheduled for Thursday, August 30, 2012 at 7:00pm shows up in the widget for December 31, 1969 at 5:33 pm - 5:00 pm.

    From the code, it looks like the start and end time comes straight out of the FB query result. Even with the offset math I can't figure out how it could be *that* different unless Graph is reporting incorrectly.

    Reinstalling the plugin showed no change and all of the WP Post dates are normal. Really wishing FB would let Pages export events like we can from regular profiles ...

    Hi corexian,
    We found out that there was a change in facebook responses on the time stamps formats
    I'll have a fix today and Bloke will verify it
    After that I'll update it in wordpress.org for download
    I'll also write here when its available

    That seemed like the most logical cause of the problem. Thanks for working on this. I'm still cutting my teeth on the FB side of things.
