Support » Plugin: All-in-One Event Calendar » [Plugin: All-in-One Event Calendar] Events are given a date of December 31, 1969

  • I am using the ICS feed option in the calendar. It does import events, but all events are given a date of December 31st, 1969. If I go in and manually change the date to say January 7th, 2012, they appear on the calendar as you would expect.

    My ICS feed originates from Microsoft exchange. When I look at the ICS file, I do see that the DTStart lists the correct date. However, when they appear in wordpress, the date has been changed to December 31st, 2012.

    Thanks for any assistance.

    A snipet of my ICal file as follows:——————
    DTEND;TZID=”Eastern Standard Time”:20111222T203000
    DTSTART;TZID=”Eastern Standard Time”:20111222T190000

  • Just a follow up with additional testing…
    I can send my ical feed from exchange to a google calendar and the time and date come through fine. It would appear that the issue is when the feed goes from exchange to all-in-one-calendar as described above.

    Can you create just 2 events in MS Exchange, export it as ICS feed and share it on ?
    I will test it locally and see what is wrong.
    Don’t forget to tell me the location of your ics feed on pastebin.


    I am having the exact same problem, can you please notify me when it is resolved?

    Can you share your feed so that I can test?

    In your feed, the timezone is set to US/Eastern.
    Looking at php timezones it seems that your timezone is no longer supported.
    Do you have control over the timezone in the application that you are exporting from?
    Can you change your timezone to something that is supported?
    Here is a list of all supported timezones in America:

    Hello yani,

    I’m trying to show past events in events archive page like this:

    I have successfully call the event Title/link and location but not the date. I used the code below to call the date:
    <?php echo date('F d, Y', $obj->start); ?>

    As you can see, the date for all events are set to January 01, 1970 but if you go to the single event page, the date is correct. Is it possible to fix this?

    Thank you.

    1. Make sure that $obj->start is set.
    2. The code needs to be changed from:
    <?php echo date('F d, Y', $obj->start); ?>
    <?php echo date_i18n( 'D, F j', $obj->start, true ) ?>

    Yani, my time zone is set, and I am getting the exact same date.

    What is your timezone set to?



    I am having this same issue with my feed. Is there any resolution? The feed is using Central Standard Time and my blog is using Eastern Time. Would this cause an issue? I can provide the link to my feed if needed.
