My Calendar plugin - cannot add event (3 posts)

    Hey everyone, noob here. (I'm so noob I posted this at wordpress.com at first...)

    I have a question regarding the My Calendar plugin.
    Whenever I try to create an event, I get the error 'I'm sorry! I couldn't add that event to the database.'
    I have previously been able to create events so I'm not sure what has changed.
    I have the newest version of My Calendar, I'm using the same computer and I create events by adding the usual information. AFAIK, nothing has changed...

    Have any of you seen (and preferably fixed) this error message before - or do you know anyone (or a forum or so) who has?

    And yes, I've contacted My Calendar support, but I figured it would be quicker this way.

    I don't think that I've received your support request - although I may have it under a different name. At any rate:

    Most likely, the DB version didn't get updated when you last updated the plug-in. This happens occasionally, because the WordPress DB user doesn't have sufficient permissions to make the changes, I think.

    You'll need to log into your database via phpMyAdmin or a similar tool - there's a WordPress plug-in called 'Adminer' that might work for you (or might not -- depends on why the DB update failed for you.)

    What you need to add will depend on what version you upgraded from - the entire database profile can be found in the file my-calendar-install.php; the most recently added fields are:

    event_span INT(1) NOT NULL DEFAULT '0',
     event_phone VARCHAR(32) NOT NULL,

    (in the events table) and

    location_phone VARCHAR(32) NOT NULL,

    (in the locations table.)

    Thank you so much :)

    I have indeed written to you under a different name (from the actual site) - I am only standing in for the usual editor.
    I found out too late that I did not actually know how to access the mail that you were provided in the support message... /facepalm

    I will try out your suggestions and hope it works out - either way, you have been very helpful.
