🐞 Partial Support for FSE Themes

Status: Scope in Progress

Description:

FSE themes are now alive and kicking. In fact, starting with WordPress 6.0, the default theme, TwentyTwentyTwo, is an FSE theme.

For now, FSE themes don’t break with The Events Calendar, but there is still significant work to be done on our end to provide support for basic things such as:

  • Template overrides
  • Programmatical customizations
  • Legacy Widget support
  • Etc…

As you can imagine, we are not happy about this and we’ll spend the rest of the year gradually improving FSE support. Hang in there!

Workaround:

  • Temporarily use a non-FSE theme

🐞 Huge Subscribe to Calendar Icons (Skeleton Styles)

Status: Fix in Progress

Description:

The Events Calendar site owners that are using Skeleton Styles (under Events > Settings > Display) are seeing huge SVG icons on the single event page after updating to 5.16.0+

Workaround:

  • Don’t use Skeleton Styles until the fix is released
  • Use CSS to reduce the size of the icons: svg.tribe-common-c-svgicon–cal-export (!important might be required)
  • Use CSS to hide the icons: tribe-common .tribe-common-c-svgicon

βœ… The event time zone is set to UTC+0 when creating a new event (Avada)

Status: Fixed

Description:

When creating a new event, then the event time zone is set to UTC+0 regardless of the WordPress time zone setting under Settings > General and regardless of the TEC time zone settings under Events > Settings > General tab.

This is a known issue when using the Avada theme. This is not something we can fix on our end, it will have to be a fix from Theme Fusion / Avada. They already know about the issue, and they are planning to include the fix in their next update.

Workaround:

Reverting to the previous version of Avada should solve the issue.

βœ… Date and time metabox does not show up in some cases

Status: Fixed in The Events Calendar 5.14.2

Description:

This issue impacts users of the Classic Editor plugin that have set the Allow users to switch editors option to Yes and the default editor for all users to Classic Editor.

Under these conditions, when trying to create or edit an event in the Classic Editor, the Events Calendar meta boxes do not load.

As a result, it’s not possible to edit or see the date/time, organizer, etc

This issue is particularly noticeable for users that are also using a page builder (Divi, Avada, Elementor, Beaver, etc.).

Workaround:

Head over to Events > Settings > General and uncheck the Enable Block Editor for events settings and hit Save Changes.

In the text of the Classic Editor, remove the block code (e.g. <!–) and save the event. (https://d.pr/i/jUUc07).

🐞 Incomplete CSV Events imports, missing: events, category assignment, featured image, etc.

Status: Fix in progress

Description:

For some users, when trying to import an Events CSV file, all seems to be working fine.

But, upon closer examination, there are appears to be missing information from the import: events, category assignment, featured image, etc. Exactly as though some records were skipped.

The issue seems to be related to the configuration of the webserver for some users. There were some reports of CSV imports taking a really long time and even timing out.

Workaround:

In most cases, staying on the screen (as opposed to navigating away, fixes the issue). Some users have also reported fixing the issue by running the same import several times until completion. Others were not so lucky.

βœ… Google Search Console error: Missing field eventStatus

Status: Apply a snippet

Description:

Google has recently leveled up in regards to the information it is expecting from an event. This is why we added an event status option dropdown as of The Events Calendar 5.11.0.

This setting will keep Google happy with any new event that you create.

Alas, the event status option is not retroactive. In other words, if you created events before the feature was released, they will not have a defined event status.

Of course, you could manually go into each event and define an event status. But that is pretty time-consuming. We have a better solution πŸ™‚

Workaround:

Use the following snippet to add the eventScheduled event status to all events where an event status was not added.

ℹ️ PHP 8 compatibility and support

Status: In progress

PHP 8.0:

Our plugins support PHP 8.0, although it is possible to still run into some errors when using PHP 8.0. Once these errors are reported to us we will log a bug ticket and a fix will be worked on as soon as possible.

Fatal errors on PHP 8.0 are likely to be treated as priority bugs.

Keep in mind, that at the time of writing, PHP 8 is still in “beta” for WordPress.

PHP 8.1:

PHP 8.1 is very recent. It was officially released on November 25th, 2021, and WordPress itself doesn’t yet fully support it.

We haven’t tested or developed anything for PHP 8.1 and thus, our plugins are not yet compatible with it. The development team will be working on supporting PHP 8.1, but right now there’s no defined timeline for this.

If you encounter any errors you can report them to us. We will log a bug ticket for it, which will be really helpful for us when we start working on PHP 8.1 compatibility.
