I did a new install with Buddypress and the internal bbpress.
Then I used Buddy Template to make the theme Shell Lite compatible with Buddypress.
The only other plugin is Collabpress, which was installed first.
When I tried to create an event, there were no popup calendars, I had to insert the dates by hand. But no event was created. Instead I got this error message:
Missing fields: event_start_date.
Dates must have correct formatting. Please use the date picker provided.
But there was no date picker anywhere on the page.
Besides that, I created several categories before installing EM, but the only choice in the dropdown box is for Uncategorized.
Thanks for any help.
