    Is there no way to make this walkthrough/upgrade guide sticky? It would help out a lot of people.

    I've asked the WordPress.org admins a few times. They have yet to bestow the honor.

    I'll ask again!

    Bummer, sadly, it would seem that making it sticky is not an option (technically not possible to make something sticky for just a tag). I did ask that they add it as a feature request for the next update to the wordpress.org forums.

    And yet at the same time they have a strict no-bumping rule. So it's a complete Catch-22!

    Perhaps a once a week "nudge" (rather than a "bump") would be in order. :) Or various people could just repost the information from time to time. :(

    Thanks for checking.

    LOL - we could just have this conversation about once per week right here.

    I guess the "just a tag" thing is the REAL problem. It's awfully weird that the only way wordpress.org hosted projects are allowed their own subforums is via such a simplistic kludge. Makes it difficult and awkward for ordinary users AND project leaders, I'd imagine.

    Hopefully with bbpress 2.0 they will move over and use proper sub forums.

    Hmm, about time for someone to comment on this important thread.

    Hi Shane,

    It would be great if your site search box were not at the bottom of the template. It took me some time to even realize it was there. Some of your pages are really long. I was manually typing ?s=whatever in the URL bar for a while. For example, if I want to find the article Show Your Events in the Main Post Loop I have to search for it. I can't find it any other way. Just a suggestion.

    Thanks!

    Hey Jonas,

    I added it to the sidebar in the support pages. We'll add it to the main nav in our next update.

    Thanks Shane! Hopefully WP 3.3 will not require any big adjustments to the plugin.

    Is there a changelog somewhere on your site? I was looking to see if the problem in v2.0 with using the default permalinks structure has been resolved.

    We tested on 3.3 and hopefully caught everything with 2.0.2.

    We have not fixed that yet (sorry buddy). Started to tackle it for 2.0.2, but will require a lot more work. It is a high priority issue in 2.1 and we are working on it now.

    @ lzevon Thanks for that tip. I think I just managed to remove the error and some final spam leftovers

    Events Calendar 2.0 update destroyed my calendar. This is ridiculous. I will not use or recommend any Modern Tribe software again, ever. Do you really think average users have all day to sort through your code and figure out code problems? This is WordPress, not a Hackers organization.

    Hey biodrama. This is Rob from Tribe here, and I just wanted to reach out to personally apologize to you for whatever inconvenience you're facing. I know how crappy it feels to install a plugin just to find it doesn't work. If you'd be willing to elaborate a bit more on the issues you're having, I would be happy to take a look or to get a dev on our end to offer up their thoughts. While we do expect that our users will have a basic knowledge of WordPress, nothing in this plugin should be complex enough that you have to hack together code just to get it functional.

    Feel free to shoot me an email, rob at tri.be, and I can try to get this sorted out for you. We aren't able to address every support issue that arises here on the WP.org threads, but yours sounds like a critical item that is definitely not how the calendar is meant to behave. I'd like to see what we can do to make things right...if you're willing to give us a shot. My apologies once more for your problems.

    Hi - not sure if you would like this question posted here, but after the upgrade, my calendar seems to be showing fine, but I can't pull up any events:
    http://www.rinconvacations.com/events.html

    click on any event and you get a 404 error. It's happening on old/imported events from the former version, as well as anything new I try to add (even if I click "view event" from within the wordpress admin, I get the 404 error)

    I really think this has something to do with the url path - but I can't quite wrap my head around it. Within admin, it looks like the events calendar is trying to add "/?instance_id=" at the end of my event posts... I can only edit the information right before that (eg. "save-the-parrot-fundraiser" on the example below)

    http://www.rinconvacations.com/ai1ec_event/save-the-parrot-fundraiser/?instance_id=

    any pointers anyone? thanks in advance

    Hi Annie, try flushing your Permalinks via Settings > Permalinks.

    Any ideas why my event calendar after upgrading from 1.6.5 is not showing up? I've inherited this website and am running it on a test server. Here's the link: http://www.m3ir3l3s.com/ep_wptest002/emporium/events/

    I've done all the steps, and tried all the template options but nothing works. Not sure what to start tweaking. I've also deactivated any other plugins that were active and didn't make a difference. I've updated Permalink structures as well.

    UPDATE: Something odd i just noticed. As I install the Debug Bar tool, i notice the WP Admin toolbar doesn't show up.. well it shows up but it's all White. Kinda strange. So i'm not able to use the Debug plugin. But I wonder if that's a sign of an error somewhere.

    Hey Sphereboy, are you seeing events in the Events menu in the WP admin? Have you tried flushing your permalinks?

    My posts migrated successfully over to the new Events menu in the WP admin. I've also flushed permalinks.

    The problem may well be in my Theme structure. I did a test with a default WP theme and the calendar is perfectly visible. I'm running High Def 2.5 (child) with Modularity 2.2.4. Seems there is something causing a conflict.

    Tough part will be figuring it out since i've inherited the site. I may attempt to update the two themes which are rather outdated, and hopefully it will get me going on the right direction. Need to figure out any custom coding that was done previously.

    Yeah try updating the themes and let me know what you find and if you need any more assistance.

    Thanks,

    No "migrate" button appears to me.
    I've upgrade from 1.6.5 to 2.0 (and 2.3).
    Deactivate 1.6.5 and activate 2.0. Updated permalink.

    Please, someone can give me the "query" to convert post manually?

    tnx

    I am unable to do the migration. I get a server error when I try. have tried deactivation plugins and changing permalinks but it still won't budge. Any suggestions on what might be the cause

    thanks
