Support » Plugin: The Events Calendar » [Plugin: The Events Calendar] BUG in 2.0.9: Double tags in Ajax view of calendar month

  • Resolved fwchapman


    There’s a minor bug in Version 2.0.9 of the plugin. When the month view of the calendar is loaded by Ajax, the plugin generates a redundant pair of <title> ... </title> tags.

    For example, for this URL

    the plugin generates this HTML:

    <!-- This title is here for ajax loading [...] -->
    <title><title>Events for November, 2012 ยป</title></title>

    This is a problem because the second <title> tag is actually displayed in the page title in a Google Chrome browser tab.

    Can you please fix this in a new release?

    Thank you,

    Fred Chapman

    Hi there Fred. Thanks for the report on this; you’re the first to bring it up, but I’ve passed it along to the devs for review. If they can confirm that this is indeed present and changing it won’t have any negative impacts on the plugin, we’ll definitely get this incorporated into a future release. Once I have an update on that end I’ll certainly come back into this thread to let you know the status as well.

    Cheers, and thanks again for the heads up. Please let us know what else we can do down the road.

    Thanks, Rob! Your help is much appreciated. -Fred

    Hi Fred! Sam here, dev for modern tribe. I’ve gone ahead and done a complete overhaul of the pjax (the js lib powering the current events ajax requests) for events, which will come with next version.

    Pjax has been updated to latest version, js refined and that title element is now completely removed from the content. It has been swapped for a “data-title” element on the grid container.


    Sam, thanks very much for your speedy resolution to this problem! I appreciate all your efforts to keep this great plugin bug-free. -Fred

    Thanks Sam!

    Fred, glad to hear this got you where you need to be. Sounds like you’re all set so I’m going to mark this RESOLVED. But please let us know if we can do anything else in the future. Thanks again for using The Events Calendar.

    Thanks, Rob! I just wanted to let you know that I chose The Events Calendar after evaluating a number of free event management plugins for WordPress. Yours was the best of the bunch! I’m currently using it on two client websites:

    On both sites, I did a lot of customization via CSS to integrate the calendar, event list, individual event pages, and upcoming events widget with the site design. I’m very happy with the results.

    I’m about to install the premium Eventbrite plugin on the second site. That’s a pretty sweet integration right there. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for a great product with lots of great upgrades!


    P.S. Here’s my favorite CSS customization of all:

    .home-top-right .eventsListWidget .when br {
    	display: none;

    On the home page of the second site, this convert the date and time in the upcoming events widget from the usual two-line format

    November 8, 2012 7:00 PM โ€“
    November 8, 2012 9:00 PM

    into a one-line format

    November 8, 2012 7:00 PM โ€“ November 8, 2012 9:00 PM

    Since you folks thoughtfully put spaces around the dash, this handy little CSS trick works perfectly!

    P.P.S. Could you perhaps add an option to the upcoming events widget to toggle between the two-line format vs. the one-line format? Not everyone is a CSS freak. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for all the words here, Fred – I generally only hit the forum here once a week so I hadn’t seen this until now, but I really appreciate the follow-ups and your praise of the plugin. Glad to be of service.

    The two-line to one-line tweak is actually already in the works; the presence of that is more a bug than anything and *should* be patched up with some new code we’re introducing very soon. If you find it isn’t please let us know.

    Also, I believe I saw you over on the PRO forum recently. (Correct me if I’m wrong there). If that’s the case…thanks a lot for making the jump and snagging a license. We really appreciate the vote of confidence ๐Ÿ™‚

    If you need anything else please let us know.

    Rob, I just want to thank you, Sam, and Barry over on the Modern Tribe forum for providing such excellent support for all your products. Being able to count on folks like you makes my job so much easier! -Fred
