Support » Plugin: Editorial Calendar » Quick edit does not work anymore

  • Hi,

    Is it only me, or the quick edit pan doesn’t work anymore? When I try to use it to update a post, the post just stays untouched, and my JS console says

    ‘null’ is not an object (evaluating ‘a.error’).

    The ‘new post’ pan however does work.

    I am using WordPress 3.6.1, but honestly I hadn’t used the quick fix pan for a while, so I can’t way when the problem started.

    Thanks a lot,

  • Ok, so after a lot of tests, here is what I came up with… It turns out that the problem is caused by the date format.

    In French, the default WordPress date format is something like 14 h 52 min (which means 2:52 PM). Thus, in the date field of the quick edit pan, what is shown is 14 h 52 min (instead of 2:52 PM), which then fails to be parsed by the edcal_savepost ajax action… Hence the post is not updated.

    Oops, in fact the parsing is done in JS, and not in the edcal_savepost ajax action. Anyway, if anybody runs into the same problem, here is a quick way of fixing it: in edcal.php -> edcal_postJSON(…), replace the line

    "time" : "<?php echo trim(get_the_time()) ?>",


    "time" : "<?php echo trim(get_the_time("H:i")) ?>",

    and everything will work fine, even though the times won’t be displayed in a very consistent way.

    Zack, could you do something about it so that we don’t get to do that manually after each update?

    Thanks for putting so much effort into tracking this down. I’ve tried the calendar in French without a problem. Is there some special way that I need to set this up so I can reproduce this issue and then I can fix it.


    Thanks for looking into it. The problem only occurs if the time format (“format d’heure”) in general settings is “x h yy min”, which is the default value in French…
