Maintenance Release for the Week of 12 Feburary 2018

Welcome to Maintenance Release number 3 of 2018! If this is your first time getting an update from us remember Maintenance Releases are smaller updates between major releases that are mostly comprised of bug fixes, tweaks, and small but meaningful improvements. We always recommend using a staging site to test these changes before updating on a live site.

To see all of the changes included in this Maintenance Release, check out the changelogs for all updated plugins below:

The Events Calendar 4.6.11

  • Fix – Ensure parity of CSS styles between the default Month View and the embedded Month Views generated by Events Calendar PRO’s [tribe_events] shortcode (thanks @copoloff for reporting this bug!)
  • Fix – If tribe_ical_feed_calname is empty the property X-WR-CALNAME is not added to the .ics file
  • Fix – Don’t modify the main query if is in a single post to allow custom variables don’t affect the page loading when using shortcode (our thanks to Joseph Reckley and others for highlighting this problem)
  • Fix – Fix the behavior of the tribe_format_currency function not to overwrite explicit parameters
  • Fix – Prevent a change on the dates when DST happens on an event by avoding DST changes on UTC conversion
  • Tweak – Fixed a handful of small CSS bugs in the mobile views of the Twenty Sixteen, Twenty Fifteen, and Twenty Fourteen themes
  • Tweak – New action tribe_events_ical_before was added to allow flexibility in the setup of filters before the feed is created.
  • Tweak – New filters tribe_events_ical_events_list_args and tribe_events_ical_events_list_query was added to allow a custom construction of Events objects to populate the iCal feed
  • Tweak – Prevents conflicts when lodash and underscore are used on the same site
  • Tweak – Improve the performance of dropdown and recurrent events by using caching on objects (our thanks to Gilles in the forums for flagging this problem)
  • Tweak – Add the tribe_transient_notice and tribe_transient_notice_remove functions to easily create and remove fire-and-forget admin notices.

Events Calendar PRO 4.4.23

  • Fix – iCal feed now contains the correct list of events if [tribe_events] shortcode is being used
  • Fix – Make sure a parent exists in the database before removing it from the database
  • Fix – Remove reference to undefined variable in Countdown widget
  • Fix – Ensure parity of CSS styles between the default Month View and the embedded Month Views generated by Events Calendar PRO’s [tribe_events] shortcode (thanks @copoloff for reporting this bug!)
  • Fix – Make sure recurring events are translated with WPML if different languages are placed on the URLs are directories
  • Tweak – Add filter tribe_events_pro_recurring_event_permalinks to provide an opportunity to change the generated URL with a third party plugin like WPML
  • Tweak – Prevent week-view grid tooltips from appearing “clickable” when they are not (props to Alyson E. for highlighting this bug)
  • Tweak – Improved performance of the recurrence conditionals by loading them asynchronously

Community Events 4.5.3

  • Fix – Prevent the loss of event start date, end date, start time, end time, “all day” event, and timezone choices upon failed event submission (thanks to @netdesign and many others for highlighting this issue)
  • Fix – Fixed additional fields from Events Calendar PRO on the event-submission form so that their values are saved upon a failed form submission (thanks @myrunningresource for flagging this bug!)
  • Tweak – Fixed misalignment of “Display Options” button in the front-end “My Events” list
