  • Has something changed with the way JQuery calendars work?

    The plugin “Editorial Calendar” no longer has the ability to drag and drop scheduled posts after updating to 3.1.

  • The Editorial Calendar won’t support WordPress 3.1 until we have a final version. However, I did some testing with an earlier release candidate and everything seemed to work fine.

    Can you give me a few more details about the issue you’re seeing. Does drag and drop not work at all, or is it broken during the drag and drop process? Can you drag draft posts? What browser are you using? Do you see any JavaScript errors?

    Thanks for helping me track this down. I’ll install the latest release candidate and do some more investigation soon.


    Hi Zack sorry thought I had given a bit more info. I will answer as best as I can.

    Tested with Firefox 3.6.13 and IE7.

    Drag and drop doesn’t seem to work at all in the 3.1+ versions. Draft or scheduled posts.

    I was able to get IE7 to display the following error:

    Line: 79
    Char: 273
    Error: ‘a.widget.prototype._trigger’ is null or not an object
    URL: ../edit.php?page=cal

    This with Firefox:


    IE7, the quick edit doesn’t work… but that could just be IE7 since it works fine still under Firefox 3.6.

    All other functionality still works as awesome as always. Edit, New Post, Scrolling with mouse, etc. Love the plugin, so hopefully that helps you – the work around is to just change the draft or scheduled date manually which works fine for now.

    Followup – I did further testing by de-activating all plugins.

    This restored functionality. I will re-enable one by one to see if I can determine what other plugin seems to be hijacking the function calls.

    Culprit has been located.

    Plugin: Blubrry PowerPress version 1.0.13

    Deactivating this plugin fixed the ability to drag and drop. Re-activating and leaving the error console open, Attempting to move anything spit out the errors listed in my previous message.

    Since I won’t be getting to the podcast for a while yet, just deactivating it since it isn’t needed yet. Hopefully that helps though with plugin integration etc.

    Thank you very much for tracking this down. It looks like a JavaScript conflict with Blubrry PowerPress version 1.0.13. We’ve seen this type of issue before. Most plugins just add extra JavaScript to the part of WordPress they are changing and not to other pages like the Calendar page.

    Some of them do add JavaScript to the calendar page and that can cause these types of conflicts.

    Could you explain your answer in more detail?

    I’m happy to provide more details. What kind of information are you looking for?
