Stout Google Calendar
[resolved] Adding a calendar (32 posts)

    Hi,

    I installed and activated the Stout Google Calendar plugin in my blog. I also copied and pasted the Google Calendar iframe embed code as instructed.

    When I add the calendar it says it 'successfully created' the calendar. However, (1) it does not list out under saved calendars, (2) the given calendar name is not listed out in the widget, and (3) the widget area in my blog says the code is incorrect.

    Can you help please?

    Thanks!

    Nilu, from Colombo, Sri Lanka

    This behavior was noticed in an earlier release but fixed in version 1.0.5. It had to do with the database table for not being created correctly. Your WordPress database should have a table named "[your-table-prefix-set-in-wp-config.php]stoutgc". For example, if your wp-config.php file has $table_prefix = 'wp_'; then your database table should be named wp_stoutgc. Please verify that you have a database table with "stoutgc" in the name.

    I am having the same issue. I have checked my db and have a table called wp_stoutgc.

    Can one of you post your embed code from Google so I can test locally? you probably want to wrap it with backticks

    Thanks. This works fine on my local WordPress install. What version of the plugin and WordPress are you using?

    And no records have been saved to the stoutgc table?

    I was testing on my site and realized that I can create and save a calendar on my primary blog, the one at the root level of my domain, but I can not save a calendar on any of my other blogs on the same site.

    primary blog: http://www.gaubatzonline.com

    secondary blog: http://www.gaubatzonline.com/kucc/

    I am using Version 1.1.0 of the plug-in. Looks like the issue may be with the multisite aspect of WordPress.

    Possibly. I have a multisite install locally and just created a new site, activated the plugin and saved a calendar. Do you have a table in your database that looks like "wp_2_stoutgc". The actual number may be different and is used to identify the site. I'll have to look into this more later on but any additional info you can provide is appreciated.

    I only have one table called wp_stoutgc. It has 2 rows (for each of the test calendars I added to the primary blog). No other stoutgc tables exist.

    Hi, sorry I couldn't catch up earlier, due to the time difference etc..

    I checked the database and verified that there IS a table called "wp_stoutgc". But the table is empty, even though I create calendars from the blog admin panel, as I mentioned earlier. There appears to be a problem with creation of records in it, I think.. I am not very savvy in database administration however :(

    Here are some details:
    WordPress Version - 3.0.4.
    Stout Google Calendar Version - 1.1.0
    mysql Server version- 4.1.14
    MySQL client version- 3.23.49
    phpMyAdmin - 2.11.9.6

    My blog is at http://www.zeylanica.com
    I left the error visible for you to see.

    And the Google Calendar script:

    Thanks!

    I get the same error on any blog in my network except for the primary blog.

    Any update on this issue? I'd really like to use this plug-in.

    I'm sorry but I cannot replicate the problem. I have set up new a new WordPress blog, a WordPress network/multisite blog - both locally and on an older server I have. The plugin works fine in all these variations. I checked the code and don't see anything that may be causing it. That said, this is my first plugin and I must admit I don't know everything there is to know about plugin development. I'd be more than appreciative if another developer could help troubleshoot this issue but I've exhausted what I know to do. If you think there is any other info that may helpful, please let me know.

    Hi,

    Thanks a lot for looking into the problem. I too have been reading a bit on the forums and there is a strong chance it has nothing to do with the plugin itself, but is in fact a hosting issue. If you notice in my earlier details the MySQL server version and the client version are different. From what I have read, this can cause 'unpredictable behavior' :) My host is yahoo, and many yahoo users appear to have issues, which are not being addressed by yahoo quickly enough. So, either I have to change the host to know for sure, or I need to wait it out. My blog links (which were post name + date) also stopped working and I had to enable the default wordpress link. All this happened after upgraded to WordPress 3.0.4.

    Thanks!

    Nilu

    @Nilu - Thanks for the followup. Please let me know if Yahoo fixes this and if Stout Google Calendar starts working as expected. Or let me know if you switch hosting and if that helps.

    @rgaubatz - Do you think you may be having the same issue with the server and client versions of Mysql not matching?

    @thekjub9 - Sounds like your hosting doesn't have cURL or fopen installed which are a requirement for this plugin to work. Who is hosting your site?

    I'm having this same issue: Add a calendar. Says it successfully added it. No added calendar shows. I have 2 previous calendars that were set up without a hitch, so it may be the fault of one of the plugin updates--the previous 2 were created quite some time ago, and the shortcode continues to work properly.

    WordPress 3.05
    Host: Lunarpages
    Stout 1.1.1

    The site is in a subdirectory called Blog2

    Please try deactivating and reactivating the plugin. Does this make any difference?

    Cool. Glad to hear that worked. There was a database update in one of the latest releases and it sounds like it didn't take on auto update. I'll look into this a bit more and see if there is a fix I can apply.

    I had initially network activated the plug-in.

    After your most recent post, I decided to deactivate and then activate by blog, and it worked!

    Awesome! Now I have a better idea where to look. Hopefully I can figure out a fix.

    @thekjub9 google calendar embed code will work directly in a post or page. If the Plugin version 1.2.3 is what you are using (just pushed up today), it sounds as tho you will not be able to use the pligin because the free hosting does not meet the requirements.

    I successfully have embeded the google calendar code on my post page ... there was no problem

    The Google embed code should always work if you put it directly in a post/page. The Stout Google Calendar plugin needs some additional resources on the server in order to fetch, process and append the custom CSS styles. If your server doesn't meet the requirements, this plugin won't work properly.

    I am trying to install Stout Calendar Plugin to my wordpress blog.
    I am using Outlook 2007. I can not find the TAB on the calendar which brings up the embeded iframe code.
    i have been looking at the bottom og the calendars as instructed.
    where else could i find the iframe code?
    any help would be greatly appreciated
