Date-display errors in standard calendar widget (3 posts)

    The standard calendar widget that I just installed on my blog has some bizarre errors (at least as it appears on my site).

    The current month calendar displayed on my WP homepage is OK, but when I go back to previous months, the display is incorrect. For example:

    • The first Saturday of each month is blank, and all of the earlier dates are displaced to one day earlier. For example, if the month starts on Friday, the number 1 will appear on Thursday and the number 2 will appear on Friday.
    • Each month before the current month is given the correct number of days for the previous month. Thus, for April 2010 (a 30-day month), the widget-produced calendar shows 31 days. For March 2010 (a 31-day month), the widget-produced calendar shows 28 days, and for February 2010 (the only 28-day month), it shows 31 days.
    • Aside from the incorrect number of days and the omission of the first Saturdays, the calendar dates are correct.

    I have seen this behavior on my site using two different computers running two different operating systems and two versions of Firefox.

    Is this something I did (how?!?) or is this a bug?

    Have you tried:

    - deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem? If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    - switching to the default theme to rule out any theme-specific problems?

    Thanks for the good advice. I deactivated all plugins except for Akismet, and it didn't resolve the problem.

    Rather than ditch the PrimePress theme, I think I'll just deep-six the calendar for now. ;-)
