[Plugin: The Events Calendar] Events and calendar not showing on site

  • Hi! After upgrading to 2.0 (and figuring out that events now are added in a separate place), I’m seeing only previous events on my client’s homepage, which (as I understand it) are now just plain ol’ posts, no longer calendar events. And the new event I added as a test is not showing up at all anywhere on the site.

    Also, the calendar-view button is gone and the ical-import button doesn’t work. Only the first of those is critical to me, though.

    I’m thinking this is to do with the template tags and other TEC-related code which I’m using on the home page – probably there are changes I need to implement? (I customized things quite a bit in terms of positioning and display.) I really NEED to see what the new template tags are – my client’s site will be basically broken without them.

    I also had to remove this code from my index.php and a couple of other places or it threw up an error:

    <?php global $spEvents;
    $spEvents->loadDomainStylesScripts();?>

    I assume it’s no longer needed.

    I know support is only occasional here but I hope you can provide some guidance as this is quite the monkey-wrench for longtime users of the free version.

    Thanks!

    Is there an email update we can receive about the documentation? I’d rather not have to come back to the Support Forum posts or your website to see if there is any documentation yet. Like I said before, I think even having some BASIC documentation up would be a HUGE help!

    Thanks Shane!

    Hey Mark, best way would be to either fan our FB page / sign up for our newsletter / find us on Twitter. Or just keep visiting the site(s). Aiming to get it out sometimes this week (Thursday)…

    Signed up for the newsletter, looking forward to finally seeing how to integrate 2.0 🙂

    I’m freaking out guys 🙁 I auto-updated my page —–> http://forevermusicpresents.biz/ >> & lost my posts. I think it is because 2.0 deals w/ events differently. please help 🙂

    Thx in advance

    also ‘events’ & ‘calendar’ don’t work….the ONLY place i see my data is under ‘events’ in the dash.

    I didn’t lose any of my posts after I migrating the data, did you do that first?

    I didn’t even realize there was an update. Then I tried to install the older version (after deactivating 2.0) that crashed & said location exisits…so I reactivated 2.0 and posts gone. 🙁

    I’d restore your backup, hopefully you made one!, and just use the older version. I didn’t have problems with my update at all, just need documentation to get posts on the home page. But from what I read this update isn’t as cut and dry for everyone.

    Yes i did ‘migrate data’ once i found that under setting.

    @encryptdesigns

    did that work out for you then? if not, i’d revert to a backup and go from there…

    Wish I had a backup…..I didn’t even know that TEC updated till it was too late. I’d really like to revert but i have a feeling now that posts are gone they are GONE.

    They shouldn’t just update by themselves, you have to “normally” tell it to update. I’d recommend the wp-db manager plugin as it’s a life saver. Maybe you can speak to your host about a backup? either way you *should* always back up your data before any updates. i’m sorry to hear you lost everything, but sometimes that’s the only way we learn…the hard way…trust me I’ve been there before!

    hey dotkom,

    Based upon:

    “also ‘events’ & ‘calendar’ don’t work….the ONLY place i see my data is under ‘events’ in the dash.”

    It sounds like you are seeing events on the admin but not on the front of your site? Is that correct? I just want to be sure before trying to offer advice.

    @shane THAT IS EXACTLY it….Sorry for caps but u nailed it. I re-posted all of the content so client wouldn’t immediately notice but losing the ‘calendar’ and events associated w/ posts makes this particular site less functional.

    Thx so much !!!!

    So basically, the events are not gone at all, they just now live in their own place rather than the main loop. We do have a thread on the forum (somewhere) on how to add them back to the main loop if that is important.

    Any reason you are not using pretty permalinks? You will have much much better seo if you do. There is a known bug with events for sites not using pretty permalinks that we will tackle in 2.0.2 ( a few weeks).

    To find you events calendar just add it to the menu (easiest approach). admin > appearance > menu > events panel > check “events”. If you don’t see events click on the screen settings tab and you should be able to turn it on in there.
