The Events Calendar

    I cannot for the life of me figure out how to left align the dates/content of the calendar cells on my events page FOUND HERE

    For some reason it insists on centering. Can anyone help?

    also... while I'm at it... I just checked my events list view and for some reason the titles on the left side no longer link to each individual event. Any ideas? Thanks! LINK HERE

    Hey rotaract!

    The reason your titles are centering in calendar is the theme you are using declares that all table cells should have text-align:center on them.

    That is line 528 of your themes style.css:

    th, td {
        text-align: center;

    You'll have to override that.

    For your other issue the link and title is actually hidden! Your last css declaration of your custom events css is completely hiding it!

    line 545 of your custom css.

    .events-archive .tribe_events .entry-title, .tribe-events-cal-title {
        border: 0 none;
        clip: rect(0px, 0px, 0px, 0px);
        height: 1px;
        margin: -1px;
        overflow: hidden;
        padding: 0;
        position: absolute;
        width: 1px;

    I dont know what you are using that for but you need to make it more specific. :)

    Hey faction--

    Thanks for looking at this for me. I tried changing the text align on 528 to 'right' but with no luck. Also I have absolutely no idea what the extra code in custom.css (545) is.. can I just remove the whole chunk? I'm not terribly familiar with css.

    Thanks again! This has been giving me a headache all weekend.

    the only 'overrided' css i've added is this to the theme's custom css page:

    .page-title { display: none; }
    .page-id-12 #primary .hentry { padding-top: 0; }

    Hey rotaract.

    You have a a custom css file for events overriding our default one located here, in the classica theme folder:


    Did you put that file there to override the default events css or is someone else also working on/has worked on this?

    in that file try commenting out the last section, line 545, and see what effect it has. it will bring your titles back on list view, but it was obviously added there for some reason... if you need it somewhere else make the selector more specific to just were you want the change.

    for our first issue try adding text-align right to your custom events css file td style referenced above at line 221, like so :

    .tribe-events-calendar td {
        color: #114B7D;
        font-size: 12px;
        height: 110px !important;
        padding: 0 !important;
        text-align: right;
        vertical-align: top;
        width: 14.28%;

    Perfect. This fixed it. I'm the only one working on it but I must have done that when trying to set up the widget grid calendar (before I knew it was a pro option) as well as trying to customize the way the date was formatted in the listing widget. I sent you guys an email (wondering if you offered volunteer groups the plugin at a discount? the grid calendar would be really useful on the home-page for volunteers to coordinate).

    Thanks so much for the help.

    Hey rotaract, thanks for the follow-up. Glad to hear Sam's suggestions were enough to get this resolved for you. I'm marking the thread as such right now.

    On the discount, if you emailed pro@tri.be you should have gotten a response from one of our support specialists by now. But please let me know if that's not the case and we can get you what you need.

    Thanks again for your support and for using The Events Calendar. If you ever find yourself with a few free minutes and would be so kind as to write us a review here on dot-org, we really would appreciate it. Cheers!

    I'll gladly leave feedback as the plugin kicks ass -- and the support is even better.

    I haven't received a response (yet), but sent the email to inbox@tri.be. Should I try the other address?

    Thanks again for all the help!

    Thank you so much for the positive words, rotaract. We really appreciate your support on that end and are always stoked to receive a new review.

    I'd say send that email to pro@tri.be, which is our dedicated support inbox. Inbox@tri.be mainly goes to the managers and isn't as often reviewed. If you send to pro we'll have you a response in no more than 24 hours.

    Rob --

    Got hooked up with you guys and now have the pro version working on our site. Thank you so much!

    Before we take it live -- When I switched to the pro version it tinkered with some of the settings I had with the free version. If you go to our calendar page, it isn't expanding to the full width of the page, even though I have it set up in the template to use the full-width theme page (which is the same page our about page uses, which works full width). Any thoughts?

    Thank you again!

    I added:

    .grid .tribe-events-event {
        width: 110px;

    which fixed the calendar width, but the events list width is still too narrow. Any clues on the css to fix that width as well?

    Also I'm wondering how to get the iCal button at the bottom and the CALENDAR and EVENT LIST buttons at the top to align on the right side of the calendar? ideas?

    Hey there rotaract. Glad to hear you made some progress on this; since you've updated to PRO, would you mind posting this issue on the tri.be forums? Since we can provide both a deeper level of support to PRO users and hit those threads more quickly, it'd probably be best across the board.

    Note that I don't monitor that forum myself too much, but we've got a solid team who does so in place....you're in good hands there.

    Thanks again for your support. If I can do anything else in this specific thread, give me a shout. Otherwise we'll see you on the PRO side :)
