Support » Plugin: My Calendar » Could be excellent, but buggy

  • The plugin is well-designed, easy to use. But minus two stars for bugs that prevent me from using the scheduled dates feature.

    Can you describe what you mean? I’m honestly not sure what you’re referring to by the ‘scheduled dates’ feature, let alone what the bugs are.

    I always appreciate support requests to help identify and fix bugs.

    Yes, the version I am using is community MyCalendar version 3.2.17 on WordPress 5.7.2

    Bug: Scheduled events disappear when saving the main event.

    1. Create a new event, save.
    2. Edit event, adding scheduled dates using “Add Another Date” button. Dates are added.
    3. Save event. All added dates disappear.

    Bug: Editing a scheduled date causes the date to disappear.

    1. Select an event with scheduled dates
    2. Edit a scheduled date
    3. After saving changes, the date is removed from the event it was associated with.

    Issue:
    Trashed events appear in Event Groups, which is fine. But to avoid confusion they should be suffixed with “- Trash” or something to indicate they are no longer published.

    Issue:
    Adding an event to an event group seems to be limited to copying an event, which is not intuitive. There should be a button that says add an event to this event group, or something.

    Maybe I’m doing something wrong with scheduled events, I will update my review and rating if that is the case. I’ll also update it if these are legitimate bugs and they get fixed.

    The next major release is a pretty major update of several aspects of the UI/UX, and I’ve just committed some changes that I think will improve all these issues significantly. Some of them were already done (trashed events no longer appear in event groups), but I hadn’t really done a serious review of the additional occurrences process recently, so that’s getting a bit of an overhaul, too.

    That’s great news. For the time being, is there a patch to fix the scheduled dates issues on the current version, I don’t mind copying and pasting code, or maybe upgrading to pro?

    Providing a patch would be challenging – there have been too many changes across the plug-in at this point to quickly backport those changes. The next version is fairly close to ready, and is pretty mature, so you could just install it now. That said, it’s *not* a finished update, so there could be surprises.

    Upload the contents of the ‘src’ directory to the WordPress plugins directory to install it.
