Support » Plugin: Event Calendar » color settings being ignored?

  • Resolved mcmito



    The calendar works fine except one thing. The colors I set up for the different calendar categories are being ignored. #3366cc is being used instead for all categories. Same applies to the event filter links in the front end: Only the “all” link has a background color, the rest don´t.

    I´m using version

  • I had the same problem as everyone else.

    Tried mcmito’s trick with install/change to mod777, activate… didn’t work. The css color file was not created.

    Then I had a thought. All of my old categories with their corresponding colors were still there in the back end… so I just created one new, temporary category, with a color.

    Poof! All of the colors for all of the categories suddenly reappeared.

    Actually, I’m wondering if that is the solution.

    Don’t reload the plugin.
    Don’t change the permissions on the server folder.
    Just simply create a new category (temporary) and set an arbitrary color for it.

    My guess (and that’s all it is) is that doing so causes all of the category colors to be rebuilt and they will then display properly.

    Thank you. I may wait for the new version.
    Created the two-day event properly. Thanks.

    Tried writerdave’s idea of creating the temp category but that didn’t work.

    I don’t really want to uninstall, reinstall and reload the calendar data etc. So I guess I just wait.

    Thanks again.

    Plugin version is now available for download.
    Let me know if this issue persists after you’ve upgraded to the new version.

    Updated the plugin.
    Color settings issue is not resolved.
    And the calendar listings in the home page sidebar disappeared and the plugin disappeared from the Dashboard panel.

    It sounds like you’ve got a theme/plugin conflict – which will require editing code. I’m sorry to suggest, but you may not be able to use this plugin.


    I’m using Thesis.
    Should I try uninstalling and reinstalling?
    Haven’t tried that yet.

    You have this error on your site, unrelated to the calendar.

    $m(".ccf-datepicker").datepicker is not a function
    [Break On This Error] $m(".ccf-datepicker").datepicker();

    Check for errors in your browser javascript console. Other plugins or your theme may be causing conflicts that prevent the calendar from functioning. Disable any plugins and isolate the cause of the error by reactivating them one at a time.

    Error console said it was the Custom Contact Form plugin. I deactivated it. Uninstalled and reinstalled the Calendar. Have to go back and modify to get it to appear in the Dashboard again.

    As I indicated before, this will require changes to the code.

    The second FAQ answer addresses the dashboard issue:

    However, once all is said and done, I can’t promise you wont encounter further javascript conflicts.

    S’alright. Got the dashboard issue fixed. It appears.
    Still, no change in color categories.
    That’s not that critical for me, but I’d like the color to be one of the site’s colors.

    Try this with the categories:

    1. Go to the categories page
    2. Change the name of one of the categories and press update
    3. Change the name back and press update again
    4. Go to the calendar page
    5. Press Shift-F5 (to force reload the page, ignoring the cache)

    Are the colors back?

    Did everything you said.
    Nothing happens when I Shift F-5. So I cleared recent history.

    Ya know, I frequently get a message that a script has stopped running that has to do with Chrome. Maybe there’s a glitch with Firefox somewhere?

    I love the look of this calendar and want to use it. Much slicker than the standard Calendar.

    Very strange, I’m afraid I have nothing left to suggest. I use Firefox, Chrome and IE on Windows when testing the plugin and I have yet to experience this issue.

    Firebug says this:

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC “-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN” “”>
    <html lang=”en-US” dir=”ltr” xmlns=””>
    <head profile=”″>
    <body class=”custom calendar” onclick=”if(stWidget.buttonClicked==false){stWidget.stopClosing=false;stWidget.openDuration=0;stWidget.stClose(100);}”>

    Mean anything? Or normal stuff?
