    Probable conflict Events Calendar Pro 4.4.3.1 (or EC 4.6.22.1) and recent update of Elementor 2.2.1.
    I tried switching to Theme Twenty Seventeen, deactivating all plug-ins except Elementor. It worked fine. Then I reactivated EC & EC Pro and got this error message:
    “Sorry, the content area was not found on your page. You must call ‘the_content’ function in the current template in order for Elementor to work on this page”.

    Elementor was working fine until the recent update (have not used it since update 4 days ago until today. I got the error message the first time I tried to open Elementor).
    I do not have Pro version of Elementor. Therefore, I have no access to their support. Who should I notify of this problem? and how can I get the previous version of Elementor back?

    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.

    Calendar view works beautifully. I have been changing the colors. However the bar at the top of the calendar with the days of the week remains dark gray, with black lettering. This is virtually illegible, even on my big desktop. How can I change these colors?

    AbigailM you’re a genius! I changed it to a “custom link” and inserted the url. And, Bingo! There’s my calendar!
    I think EC was the first plugin I installed shortly after installing WP, as a total newbie. At that time, I thought the only way to put an item on a menu was to create a page with the name I wanted on the menu. Now, thanks to you, I know better. Thank you soo much for your help and patience!

    Yes, Dashboard>Pages>Calendar, because I want the word “Calendar” on my menu. Is the word “Calendar” a no-no word because it is used by the program? I ran into that problem when I wanted a page “2016” and was told I couldn’t use it because WordPress uses it for archives! Trouble is, I had it working for a while, with the “Calendar” page, then it suddenly quit working. Not sure when, maybe the last update of EC? I’ve been making so many changes, trying out plugins, etc., I just didn’t notice!

    Events>Settings>Right Here, results in the calendar view, displayed correctly.
    The url at top of calendar view page is: “http://localhost/wordpress/concerts/”
    The page (and menu item) are “Calendar”.
    The only item on this page is: “http://localhost/wordpress/concerts/”
    The result of clicking menu item “Calendar” is this text: “http://localhost/wordpress/concerts/”
    The permalink on page, “Calendar” is: “http://localhost/wordpress/concerts/”
    When I changed the link on page “Calendar” to “http://localhost/wordpress/concerts-2/” I got this result:
    White box with “Calendar…continue reading” Clicking this reloads the white box again
    Second line in white box is: Site logo and site title and a symbol (like this<but with balls at both ends and in the middle) lousy description, but I don’t know what it means! Anyway, when I click on it I get a black box “WordPress embed/HTML embed”
    Below that is a white box with: “http://localhost/wordpress/concerts-2/”
    Below that is: “Copy and paste this URL into your WordPress site to embed”
    bty: My “wordpress/wordpress/wordpress” is the result of improper installation, but as it works OK the “guru” on WPMUDEV said not to change it as it might really mess things up! In my examples above I have eliminated the extra 2 WordPresses! I didn’t bother with categories, as all our events are concerts.

    Yes, I tried coding the menu link to match the permalink. The result was a white box:
    “Calendar
    Calendar…continue reading
    Logo & Site title”
    I clicked on ‘continue reading’ and got a black box:
    “WordPres embed HTML embed
    then the url
    Copy and paste this URL into your WordPress site to embed”

    I don’t think the problem lies with EC-CS. I switched to Theme Twenty-Seventeen and deactivated all plug-ins except The Events Calendar (but I did deactivate EC-Shortcode) and the problem was still there. Click on menu item “Calendar” results in:
    “Calendar
    http://localhost/wordpress/wordpress/wordpress/concerts/”
    I do notice one strange thing, though: the permalink on page “Calendar” reads:
    “http://localhost/wordpress/wordpress/wordpress/concerts-2/” I tried editing the permalink to eliminate the “-2” but that didn’t work.

    I reiterate: I am running WordPress, Weaver Xtreme Theme Child, The Events Calendar, and Events Calendar Shortcode Pro, all latest versions. Currently on localhost but we are putting the site on the web within a few days.
    “Calendar View” works with Events>Setting>Right Here, but same exact url on Calendar page (menu item) produces this result:

    “Calendar
    http://localhost/wordpress/wordpress/wordpress/concerts/
    This is not intended as a link. It is the exact text I get on my screen instead of the calendar view I expect.
    I tried deactivating all plugins except the Events Calendar and Events Calendar Shortcode, and switching to Theme Twenty Seventeen. This made no difference.
    As the main purpose of this site is to inform visitors about upcoming concerts, it is important that we be able to display this information before we put the site on the web.

    Unresolved part of last post:
    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:

    Calendar
    http://localhost/wordpress/wordpress/wordpress/concerts/

    Well, I finally figured that one out! On the “Venue” page, “Country” was entered as “United States” and state picked from drop down list as “South Carolina”. This was then corrected to “select a country” and “NC”. As all our events are in the US, is there any way to eliminate the “Country” field to prevent this from happening again? Also would like to be able to enter NC instead of North Carolina.

    I was able to make it work, using your Knowledgebase/Adding a calendar link to your site menu. Thank you.

    Thanks for reply. I have since switched to another theme: WeaverXtreme. There must have been a conflict with the previous theme because it now works in: Events>Settings>Where’s my Calendar>Right here. However I still can’t figure out how to make it work from the menu. I have a page “Calendar” set up with the code I copied from “Right Here” above, but all I get is the code on the front page, instead of the calendar I expected. Where did I go wrong? The code I found (in Inspector) is: Right here. What should be on my Calendar page?
    Thanks for your help.
    btw, We will be on the web shortly and upgrading to Premium version…if I can get the free one to work!

    I edited the wp-config.php file, thus (

      my additions

    :

    ):

    * @link https://codex.wordpress.org/Debugging_in_WordPress
    */
    define(‘WP_DEBUG’, false);

      define( ‘WP_INPUT_VARS’, ‘4000’ );
      define( ‘WP_POST_SIZE’, ’20M’ );
      define( ‘WP_MEMORY_LIMIT’, ‘256M’ );
      define( ‘WP_MAX_UPLOAD’, ’20M’ );

    /* That’s all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */

    Is that correct? I’m very new at all this! I like Elementor, but would like to wrap text around a picture. Can I do this?
    I have several bios on my site. Some have long or short bio, 1 or more pix
    I am currently using 2 columns: Left column picture, right column text.

    Dead issue. Resolved weeks ago
