    I posted this over at the other plugin’s help forum a week ago but no replies so I’m trying here. I’m hoping that someone who uses or knows both plugins can help me.

    2 issues:
    1. I’m having trouble with the page title in calendar view. It should be “site name” and “upcoming events”. Instead the title of the page shown (the “%%title%%” tag in WordPress SEO) is the name of the first event of the month. I’ve tried different variables but none work. In the meantime, I’ve set the page title to be site name only. It’s fine, but not what I want.

    2. I think this is related though I didn’t ask in the other forum: The border colour I assigned to the category for the first event of the month is attaching to the entire month. I’d like to be able to have category colours if it works.

    I’m using the free version.

    Thanks.

    Hi there canadianfoodiegirl. Thanks for the note here, and for your use of the calendar. My apologies for taking some time to get you a response here. We have indeed been working through some issues with the Yoast plugin and while not all of them are 100% sorted, we launched 2.0.9 with a few tweaks that should improve performance. Have you updated and found that the issue persists? If not, try jumping from 2.0.8 to 2.0.9 and let me know if it fares any better.

    On the category colors front, you have a couple options here. We do have a tutorial for it on the tri.be site (http://tri.be/coloring-your-category-events/); and, a user put together his own plugin (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/the-events-calendar-category-colors/) that should help to accomplish it as well. Are either of those valuable to you?

    Do you need anything else here, canadianfoodiegirl? Or can I mark this RESOLVED?

    Hi Rob.

    Give me until tomorrow and I’ll check back in. I came across the previous reply in my inbox earlier, didn’t remember if I dealt with it and didn’t have time today. I know that I have been updating the plugin.

    Thanks a lot.

    Sounds good! Just let me know what we can do after you’ve taken another glance. Cheers.

    I just resolved the second issue after playing around. I realized that I wasn’t applying the “Default Events Theme” to the calendar.

    The first issue persists but it’s not a big deal. Just means that there’s no title associated with the calendar. I have a few issues to sort out with the other plugin.

    Can I move up the location of the legend?

    That last question was a silly one. I looked at the code again and changed it. I’d had the code where I wanted it previously but was using the wrong theme, then just stuck the code in while playing around.

    Resolved.
    I’ll deal with page title stuff separately because it’s a WordPress SEO plugin issue.

    Ah, thanks for the follow-ups here. Glad to hear you got this sorted via some code modifications. If when looking into the WordPress SEO plugin issue, they say that there’s some issue with our plugin that is causing a problem and goes against WordPress best practices…definitely let me know so we can get that sorted on our end.

    Otherwise, since this is resolved I’m going to mark it as such. Thanks again for your support.
