All-in-One Event Calendar
Widget background too small - not responding to number of events (7 posts)

    I recently upgraded to the "Premium" version and now the homepage widget background is defaulting to the size it would if there was not content. With the previous version (not premium) the background height would respond to the number of events. I can add a fixed px height to the widget background in my iTheme2 style.css, but that makes all the widgets that height.

    Any idea what the issue is or any fixes? It seems like there must be something conflicting in the Premium All-in-One (themes-ai1ec/vortex/style.css) file or something since I didn't change anything in my theme's .css file when I upgraded.

    The sites not done, but here is a link so you can see what I'm talking about on the homepage at least.

    I've been trying to figure this out all day and am totally out of brilliant ideas. Any thoughts would be incredibly appreciated! Thanks!!

    If you'll accept a wild guess, mine would be an issue between your theme and the plugin. I'd suggest that you contact the plugin support folks and see what they have to say.

    Thanks davejampole! And I'll accept any/all wild guesses. I agree with you. That is my supposition as well.

    I just noticed on the plugin site that WordPress V3.5 + this plugin = broken. Seems I'm not alone. I think I may just have to find a different plugin until they fix it.

    Thanks again!

    I totally disagree that this plugin and WP3.5 are broken.

    I had been using Ajax Event Calendar before upgrading to WP 3.5. There was (and may still be) incompatibilities between WP and the AEC. That plugin author seemed not to be too interested in coming up with a fix. Now, I know that that plugin and this one are free, but that doesn't mean dump the people using your plugin.

    Anyway, I switched to this calendar plugin and I like it. It seems much more flexible than the aec and you can communicate with the author(s). Is it 100% compatible with WP 3.5? No, but they are more than willing to resolve any issues users stumble upon, or at least, advise you why they can't get to it right away. In fact, I've got a few issues I need resolved. I've also made a few suggestions for their next version.

    So, all-in-all, I'm staying with All-in-One-Event-Calendar.

    Yeah, it seemed like everything else was working fine for me, except for this widget background issue. And I definitely agree that I like the look and flexibility of this plugin. It's good to hear that the authors are responsive. I've never posted to support forums or contacted authors before this, so this may be a dumb question - but to contact them, do you just click on one of their names and send them a message? I wasn't sure if there was a more formal way I was supposed to do it.

    Thanks again for your help davejampole!

    You can contact a plugin's author(s) in at least two ways.

    1) most of them monitor this message board, which is why the message board exists in the first place. The degree to which they respond is individual on their part and depends somewhat on how much they have on their plate at the time you post something and how clearly you describe the problem. Just saying "this doesn't work" is a little less than specific. A screen grab SHOWING the problem is a lot more descriptive than just a few words. Also, maybe include a link so they can see your errant website for themselves.

    2) you can go to the developers website and very possibly find a 'support' link.

    Both ways have worked for me in the past. Also having the ability to write/tweek some code doesn't hurt.
