[Resolved] Category menu not appearing

  • On the demo I see that there should be a category dropdown at the top of the calendar, but it’s not appearing on my site. Any ideas why?

    Also, will it be possible to edit the text in the dropdown where it says “All Event Categories”? If so, where can I find that text to edit it?

    Many thanks!

  • I just uninstalled and reinstalled the plugin, but the tag and category dropdowns are still not appearing. Help is appreciated, thanks.

    Hey cowgirly,

    Try removing this code:

    'exclude_from_search'=>false

    On line 78 of /wp-content/plugins/wp-fullcalendar/wpfc-admin.php

    Then, you can go into the Settings > WP FullCalendar and check Events under post types and check tags and categories!

    I’m going to create a separate thread for the plugin author to fix this…

    Cheers,
    Jonah

    jonahcoyote — you are the BEST. Thank you, that worked!!

    One more bit– where can I find the text on the dropdown “All Event Categories” so I can edit that? Thanks…

    You’re welcome. Here’s one way to change that text:

    function filter_translations($translation, $text, $domain) {
        if ($domain == 'dbem') {
            switch ($text) {
                case 'All Event Categories':
                    $translation = 'View All Events';
                    break;
            }
        }
    
        return $translation;
    }
    add_filter('gettext', 'filter_translations', 10, 3);

    Thanks– also found it in em-posts.php and changed it there.

    Someone please help me. I understand I am to have EVENTS under post types
    I was told this
    Then, you can go into the Settings > WP FullCalendar and check Events under post types and check tags and categories!

    I have NO EVENTS tag to check (using V 0.8.3.

    Choose which taxonomies you want to see listed as search options on the calendar.

    Categories (category)
    Tags (post_tag)
    Format (post_format)

    Pages (page)
    Media (attachment)
    Portfolios (portfolio)

    From your list, it appears that the Events Manager plugin is not installed (or maybe not fully configured such that WP Full Calendar knows its there). With Events manager installer and configured, you would also have Locations and Events in your list.
