    Are the recurring events broken? I’ve selected recurring every 1 week on Wednesdays from Sept. to May 22, 2019 (Camera Club) and it suddenly switches to display Tuesday once in November 2018. See here. And this image view of the problem shows exactly how the event is listed. It displays incorrectly on Firefox/Mac and Chrome/Android. I’ve been working on this for six hours. Have tried monthly which defaults to 1st of month regardless of the day of week selected. I’ve deactivated all plug-ins and have done it with only Events Manager active. Twice I’ve switched to a WP default theme. I went so far as to delete other deactivated Events plugins. I’ve checked all my settings, forced only the blog’s timezone, triggered the plug-in update, uninstalled Events Manager and then reinstalled and reactivated. (Although deinstallation doesn’t seem to actually remove anything, all settings came back). Please help. Thank you, April

  • I’ve deleted the plug-in and trying another. I will try Events manager again in a day or so.

    First, let me say we love your plugins. Well written and very useful for our community that frequently schedules recurring meetings.

    We are also seeing the OP’s issue with the free version of WP Events Manager and WP Full Calendar. The behavior is as follows on our localhost and server.

    1) localhost (PHP version 5.3.13)
    Set up a recurring event spanning a year every Tuesday starting with today’s date for a year.
    Use the fullcalendar shortcode on a page.
    View calendar (Months looks good and then the calendar is off beginning in November).

    2) server (PHP version 5.3.3)
    Set up a recurring event spanning a year every Tuesday starting with today’s date for a year.
    Use the fullcalendar shortcode on a page.
    View calendar (First month looks good and then the rest of the calendar dates are off OR missing in varying months).

    It appears issue #2 is related to the following link
    http://php.net/manual/en/datetime.modify.php

    We made a change in em-wpfc.php in the way $scope_end is created using $scope_start as a guide and it appears to have fixed issue #2, but we are still getting the OP’s issue in both of our environments.

    $end_DateTime = new EM_DateTime(substr($_REQUEST[‘end’],0,10));
    $scope_end = $end_DateTime->getTimestamp();

    Note: There may be other issues or more instances of the fix that need to be implemented to completely correct the issue, but it appears something with the date calculations might be off for those with older versions of PHP.

    @saintron maybe you can create a separate thread for this issue to avoid confusion with the original author of this post? however, what is your current EM version and would it be possible to try 5.9.2 ?

    @vaaeducation, would it be possible to try EM version 5.9.2 as well?
