Support » Plugin: The Events Calendar » Wrong State displayed

  • Resolved ncbogroupie


    Running WordPress, Weaver Xtreme Theme Child, The Events Calendar, and Events Calendar Pro, all latest versions. Currently on localhost but we are putting the site on the web within a few days.

    I noticed 2 glaring “typos” on the Front Page: Not a good way to start a new website with such misleading information as the first item! Greenville is especially bad as there is a (bigger) Greenville in SC! I double-checked ‘Events’ for each item, also ‘Venues’, all addresses are correct. Where are these erroneous “states” coming from?

    This is the front page, below the logo:
    Upcoming Concerts
    Click on concert name for details, click on “+Google Map” for directions:
    Monteverdi – Columbia, SC
    October 8 @ 4:00 pm
    Trinity Episcopal Cathedral, Columbia, SC
    1100 Sumter Street
    Columbia, NC 29201 + Google Map

    Bach Concerto for Two Violins – Greenville, NC
    October 17 @ 7:00 am
    East Carolina University, Greenville, NC
    East Fifth Street
    Greenville, SC 27858 + Google Map

    Btw, would it be possible to make +Google Map link into a button?
    2 other “problems” I would like to take care of before we put the site on the web:
    “Calendar View” works with Events>Setting>Right Here, but same exact url on Calendar page (menu item) produces this result:


    I do hope you can help me, as we can’t go live with this glaring error on the front page!

  • 1. Have you tried switching back to Twenty-Seventeen to see if the problem persists? That will help sort out whether or not this is a theme problem.

    2. What are your basic Template settings? If you go to Dashboard > Events > Settings > Display you will see that can choose a default stylesheet, and that your options are “skeleton styles” or “full styles” or “Tribe Event Styles” — you can switch back and forth among them to see how each different selection impacts appearance.

    3. Ultimately, the way to change colors is with modifications to your CSS. On my site, that section of the calendar is dark text against a medium gray background, with these color values:

    .tribe-events-calendar th {
        background-color: #ddd;
        color: #333;}

    That is using the “full” styles setting so that is being picked up from underlying values in my theme, but you can also code the values you want directly into your child style sheet.

    4. Just a suggestion: I would suggest that you move your site to your web host and develop from there. If it is a new site, you can also install a maintenance plugin, so that site visitors will see a “coming soon” page while you can still work on your site. As you say you are new to WordPress, I think you may run into a lot of problems when you try to upload sites where things that worked on your localhost stop working. I have developed many wordpress sites and I always do my development work online, so that I am certain that I am working with the same platform and software in development that will be used with the live site.

    I tried the CSS approach. I was able to modify the font color but not the background. SO I changed the font to white, which shows up on the dark gray. Not pretty, but readable!
    I know we should be on the web. I asked them to select domain name/hosting a month ago. Still waiting.
