Support » Plugin: Simple Calendar - Google Calendar Plugin » Displaying next day's event too soon.

  • Resolved pbutler3


    Issue: Calendar displays awesome, but each evening at 7PM EST the event for the next day is displayed, replacing the current day’s event. I would like the current day’s event to be displayed until midnight, then it should display the next day’s event.

    Background: We use this amazing plug-in to display the hours of operation for two libraries. The library hours are independent of each other, and can change frequently. I setup the Google Calendar with a single, all-day event, for each day of the week (and the daily event repeats weekly). The title of the event is all the plug-in displays, as the title contains our hours.

    The Google Calendar is set to EST (GMT-05:00). Under Settings > General, our Timezone is set to New York (which is also EST, GMT-05:00). Both are set to have their week start on Sunday. We have a single GCE feed.

    Other settings:
    Retrieve events from: “00:00 today” and “0”
    Retrieve events until: “The end of time” and “0”
    Maximum number of events to retrieve: “1”
    Timezone adjustment: New York
    Cache duration: 43200
    For HTML: <div class="gce-list-event gce-tooltip-event">[event-title]</div>

    I feel like I have tried every combination of timezone and timezone adjustment, and compounded by only being able to test my changes once a day after 7PM EST, I am not sure what is going on. It is likely something simple I am overlooking.

    Any suggestions would be awesome, thanks!

    Hi Paul,

    Thanks for the detailed report! It certainly looks like you have everything set up correctly, so I think this may be due to a bug in the current release. However, this bug should hopefully already be fixed in the development version of the plugin.

    If you’re able to test out the dev version and let me know whether it does or doesn’t do the trick, that would be very helpful.

    This is the exact problem we are having 🙂

    It looks like initial results from our testing environment suggest that the development version of the plugin solves the issue we were experiencing. Hopefully we will be able to roll it out to the production environment shortly.

    Thanks for your help Ross!

    Cheers, Paul
