    Hi Hallene,

    I've looked at the source code of your site and it seems that it's just the display function doesn't work. The code is correct and it shows the microformatted date.

    I'm not sure what's happening. If you look on the admin page where you've entered the event details. Below that it should display your Current Events. Can you check if it shows the time and date in there?

    Thanks. Jerry

    It does not show the time and date there either.

    Hi Halene,

    Thanks so a conversation I had the other day with somebody experiencing a similar issue we discovered that the problem lies in the fact that your website is running on Windows. Some conversion specifiers for the date representation do not work on Windows systems.

    More detail:
    strftime( __('%a %b %e %Y %H:%M',SE_TEXTDOMAIN), $details['event_start']);

    The %e becomes problematic then.

    I will work on a fix and publish this later this week. I'll let you know when this happens.

    Sorry, that first sentence is really weird. This is what I ment to say:

    We are indeed running on a windows system. We plan on switching to Linux once we have completed the site and get board approval to go with the new look. Until that time we are bound to a windows server for the old site. The code as is you say should work properly on a Linux system?

    The Simple Events Calendar still isn't displaying properly on Windows systems - it doesn't show the time. I've downloaded the latest version.

    Hi louises,

    Could you give me a link where I can see what's happening?

    Thanks!

    Sure! Though it's not on the right server yet(and I've only posted one event since it didn't work properly): http://multimediekursus.ats.dk/1811/louise/wp/

    And could you please tell me where to change the "Where" and "When" to Danish words? I've been messing around in the simple-events-calendar.php looking for the right "echo" and changed the words where I found them, but it's apparently not the right ones I've changed.

    And one more thing - how do I change the days and months to Danish as well?

    I know it's a lot but I hope you'll help me (since I'm a newbie in WordPress:-/).

    Thanks a lot!

    The errors I have are similar to the ones indicated on this page. I'm on a windows machine, but this shouldn't be a reason for the plug-in to malfunction. I'm running WP sites on WAMP.

    I'm running version 1.2.3 of this plugin.

    Hi JustinFYI,

    As much as I want to agree with you that this shouldn't be a reason for the plugin to malfunction, it really is the case. This is the function that is causing this: strftime(). You can read about the known issues when running on a Windows machine here PHP: strftime - Manual

    I am working on an update for the plugin at the moment and will see if I can find a good workaround for this issue.

    Cheers,
    Jerry
