Support » Plugin: 12 Step Meeting List » Upcoming Meetings widget not working

  • Resolved raneyron

    Hello, I recently updated to WordPress 5.0 and updated this plugin to 3.2.15.

    I have the Upcoming Meetings widget in place in the sidebar of this website. It was working, although I did have some kind of issue displaying it initially. It has recently disappeared from view, even though it is still in place in the widgets.

    I have tried removing the widget and adding another instance. I have tried clearing the cache. I’ve tried selecting and un-selecting the “Style with CSS” option. Nothing I’ve done is working.

    There usually is a conflict with this type of thing, but I can’t figure out what it might be.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  • Hi Ronnie,

    My guess is you don’t have any more meetings in your area tonight? The widget hides itself when that’s the case.

    Very interesting. I thought it would be the next x-number meetings occurring no matter what time, not necessarily the same day.

    I will look into this customization for our website if your code is open source on Github. If I come up with any solutions that would allow this feature, I will absolutely share. On a side note, if the developers take suggestions, I’d like to see a table with the next x-number meetings that will happen. This feature seems important for people thinking about tomorrow’s meetings. Not necessarily the next x-number meetings today.

    Thank you very much for your quick response!

    That’s actually how it worked originally, but then some group with a lot of meetings their server couldn’t handle it.

    You’re welcome to have at the source code, it’s here: https://github.com/meeting-guide/12-step-meeting-list

    I think the best solution for servers with low processing power would be to cache a JSON file with all the meetings and then use that to calculate upcoming, maybe even let the client do it with ReactJS or something like that.

    Anyway! If you come up with something let me know!

    Great idea! It would give me a way to practice using React with API data. Much appreciated.

    Sounds great, glad you can give this a shot.

    Just know that you do actually have access to your own un-cached JSON feed, so you can start playing with React regardless.

    Typically it lives at /wp-admin/admin-ajax.php?action=meetings.

    On /includes/functions.php:57 you’ll see that we localize the main list page with the ajaxurl and nonce values. The nonce is if your feed is restricted, it’s a temporary variable to access the feed.

    Hope that makes sense. If you get a lot of 401 errors, just un-restrict your feed on Import & Settings.
