Today when I checked my Events Calendar it is showing ALL Events as passed. No matter the date.
If you look at my site at http://www.tamborinemtncc.org.au/events/upcoming/ you will see what I mean if you click on any event.
Would you please take a look and let me know what needs to be done to fix this.
p.s. I inadvertently submitted the post before I had put version number in. Here they are — The Events Calendar ver 3.0.3. — The Events Calendar Pro ver 3.05August 5, 2013 at 9:39 pm #59000
Hi Ray, I suspect this may be caused by the fact that the sidebar has events in it and is rendered before the post content thereby overriding parts of it. To test this theory, would you mind temporarily removing events widgets from the sidebar (or just pick a template that doesn’t have a sidebar) for the events pages? I’m curious if that would solve it. If it does we can look into what more can be done to support the sidebar.August 5, 2013 at 9:57 pm #59003
Thanks for your response.
I have just tried your suggestion and removed the Events widget from the sidebar (have left it off now so you can see) but still the same result with ‘this event has passed.
Just to let you know that everything was working fine with the Events Calendar yesterday the last time I looked. That is with the Events widget in the sidebar on the Events pages.

I just noticed that if I goto an Event in October or later (I currently have no events in September) they show correctly. As well these later events are not recurring events whereas all of the August Events ARE recurring.
Hope this helps.

I’m also having the same issue with my reoccuring events. I’m also getting a url and the option to “show all” reocurring events in the sequence at the side of the dates which looks untidy: http://www.advantage.co.uk/events/
I’m also looking through the blog to find a resolution to the layout / display problem as you’ll see if you click the link above.

Just looked at your site and all looks fine. Did you find anything to fix your problem?
RayAugust 6, 2013 at 5:02 am #59028
No, it still appears on the reocurring events: http://www.advantage.co.uk/event/webinar-inbound-document-management-for-dynamics/2013-09-26/ Still looking for a fix.

Ryan/Ray: Did these recurring events exist prior to upgrading to 3.x?August 6, 2013 at 10:15 am #59108techguyParticipant
I have the same problem on site we’re developing. Unable to post a link as it’s not live yet. Hoping for a fix.August 6, 2013 at 10:34 am #59114techguyParticipant
FYI, I think we’ve solved the problem on our site.
Events -> Settings -> Display -> Events template -> change to “Default PAGE Template”
I don’t see any different in how the page is rendered, except that the inaccurate error mentioned in this thread doesn’t appear.August 6, 2013 at 10:47 am #59117
@techguy, that’s very interesting. That indicates that we have a bug that pertains to that piece of meta being rendered by some other query (such as the events widget in the sidebar). That also suggests that there’s a good temporary fix (use the default page template) until we can sort that bug out.
Thanks!August 6, 2013 at 10:54 am #59118
P.s. I’ve filed a bug about this in our system. We’ll let you know if we can reproduce the problem on a clean install and when we release a fix. Thanks!August 6, 2013 at 11:13 am #59123
Thanks for the comments.
In my settings it’s already Default Page Template and yes, these events were there before the update. I daren’t add any new ones just yet in case it unearths any other issues.
I know when we first installed the plugin about 12 months ago we had problems with reoccurring events and to be honest I hate this feature as you are restricted to how events reoccur. For example, if I have a webinar I want to run this week and in 6 weeks time I have to follow a crazy rule to make it reoccur such as every fourth Friday…. Surely the simplest thing would be to repost the event but then that’s duplicate content which defeats the purpose of trying to improve the website in the SERPs. I can’t understand why there isn’t a field on the calendar where you can just type dates in for it to take place without some kind of rule. Surely I’m not the only marketer that finds this frustrating?

Ryan, I totally hear your point about custom recurrences. In fact for me personally it’s also a really high priority. As it turns out though, it’s a really complicated nut to crack and to make performant. It’s in our pipeline, but it might take a while since it’s pretty difficult to implement.August 6, 2013 at 3:45 pm #59171
Yep, I emailed support last year about this as one of the reasons I upgraded to the Pro version was (hopefully) for something like this but then became apparent you couldn’t add events like this. I was told 12 months ago it was in the future pipeline but would have hoped it would have moved forward since then.
