Support » Plugin: 12 Step Meeting List » Upcoming meetigns sidebar widget

  • Resolved willhunter84


    I have a local dev site which I migrated to a live site for testing. The meetings CSV needs to be reuploaded when migrated because the permalinks don’t update. Not a big deal.

    However, the upcoming meetings widget has disappeared a few areas where I had it posted. Both on my local site and live site. The live site. I haven’t touched anything on it. They were there this morning and then gone this afternoon.

    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    Will add, I’ve tried deactivating all plugins and changing themes. Still not working. Just to rule some things out.

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    As you noticed from the other thread, I’m one of the new maintainers of the plugin, and I still have a lot of learning to do.

    When I look at the page you linked, the widget seems to be displaying the upcoming meetings correctly. What browser are you using? Have you tried other browsers? Please try looking in your console to see if you’re getting any errors when the widget isn’t working correctly.


    I was successfully displaying the upcoming meetings in the widget that I had placed in my footer area. Today there was apparently an update to WordPress and now the widget is not showing up. Please advise. Thanks! is the website


    It’s not showing at the moment on my dev site. I’ve had wp debug on for the last week. Is there somewhere I can send the log?

    Just got in to check my local dev site. Not showing either. Could this be an issue with when the first day of the week is set?

    Two different dates in the error log, same thing multiple times:

    I am able to see your meetings when I go to your site.

    What browser are you using? Have you tried other browsers? Please try looking in your console to see if you’re getting any errors when the widget isn’t working correctly.


    I am also able to see the meetings in your footer. Please start a new topic, and post specifics about what browser you’re using.


    Thanks for your reply. I did not change anything as far as the first day of the week etc. it’s all the default settings.

    What do you suggest?


    I just looked and it’s showing up now, strange!

    It comes and goes intermittently. This is what was happening last week. It’ll be off for about 3-4 hours and come back on. I posted my logs with wp_debug on. I have every browser you can use. I don’t think that’s the issue.

    Perhaps something I posted in that error log would tell us something.

    Thanks for the replies. If I could figure out a way to duplicate this, I would. However, It’s random. And it seems to have been happening in the evenings, between 5-10 EST.


    Feel like it’s something weird with the clocks! The plugin won’t show meetings for the following day. Last meeting 8pm Monday, next meeting 11am Tuesday. It’s not going to show until it becomes Tuesday 12 AM + .

    I can live with that. However, I’ve seen the up coming meetings not show prior to the time of the respected day.

    This works pretty well, 99%. If that’s the scenario. And much better than anything that was available before.

    Perhaps in the future version, you will be prompted to search for a meeting, or next meetings are tomorrow would make this a little more intuitive rather than the whole thing disappearing.

    Thanks again for your help

    You could be right about that. I’d need to dig in further about how far out the widget will grab upcoming meetings. It sort of makes sense to me that it would only be the current day. But, perhaps we should have the widget report that there are no further meetings this day? I’m on a project that is consuming all of my time this month, but will add it to my to-do list.

    All good. For the time being I’ll rename the side bar to upcoming meetings today. Something to mitigate the expectation.
    I don’t think anything to sophisticated is required. Just a message saying. No more meetings today. The widget just displays the time. So pulling meetings for the next day may be confusing.
    Thanks again for getting back. I think for the time being. Just knowing it’s not going to display any meetings for for the following day is enough to communicate.

    It is still happening on my end. The upcoming meetings will be there most of the time in the footer section and then whoosh it doesn’t show up for maybe three hours. I can see how duplicating the error could prove to be challenging.

    The person who started this thread discovered the widget will disappear if no future meetings are scheduled until the next day.

    If there is not what you’re seeing, please start a new topic thread.

    Thank you.
