Release: The Events Calendar 3.12.1

Hello and happy Thursday, friends! If you missed the buzz, we released The Events Calendar 3.12 this week and now we’re ready with a maintenance release for you.

The Events Calendar 3.12.1 makes just one change to our core plugin:

  • Tweak – Text domains updated for consistency with the plugin slug
  • Fix – Restored normal operation of the changelog reader (used within the update screen)

So, why the update? will soon start hosting language files for plugins on and is asking plugin authors to connect their code to it for the sake of being able to accept translation pushes when they’re available. We’re simply setting ourselves up for that change when it comes.

Please note that this change has no functional impact on the plugin. In other words, if you’ve already updated to 3.12, then updating to 3.12.1 will be smooth sailing for you. No customizations or template overrides will be impacted at all, especially if you are updating from 3.12.

If you haven’t moved to 3.12 yet, please do check out the release notes for it as well as our post on high level changes to be aware of. We’re also always happy to help you out with any questions you have about the updates. Premium license holders can hit us up directly here in our forums and any other questions can be sent in to the forums at, which we hit once a week.

Thanks a ton for your support and keep on rocking!
