Support » Plugin: The Events Calendar » Plugin not working, ‘no input file specified’

  • Resolved CDoug


    Hi there,
    I am having trouble getting the events calendar to show up. It all looks fine at the back end but when you click on the events tab in the main navigation menu an error message shows, ‘no input file specified’. I have been going round in circles with this! I suspect it might have something to do with my permalinks (although I have made sure they are ‘pretty’ as required) but I still can’t figure it out. Any suggestions much appreciated!
    Many thanks in advance

    Hi @cdoug,

    Thanks for taking the time to reach out, and I’m so sorry for the trouble here! We’d be glad to investigate further to see if we can figure out what might be happening here. Are you able to share a link to your site so that we can take a closer look?

    Thank you!

    Hi @tribecari,
    Thanks so much for getting back to me. The website is – you will see that i’ve added a ‘calendar’ page as a stand-in while I try to sort the issue! Should be appearing on events page, and indeed a message in the dashboard indicates that the calendar will show in place of the page, but all I get is the error message… Very grateful for any assistance!

    Hi Charlotte!

    I’m sorry for the delay in getting back to you.

    Could you please try changing your permalinks structure by following our Permalinks Best Practices and see if any changes?

    If nothing changes, then this could be related to a theme or plugin conflict. So, to narrow the problem down, please follow the steps provided in our Testing for conflicts guide and let us know if you find anything.

    When coming back, please also copy and paste here your system information by following this guide.

    Let us know how it goes.
