"One event on invalid date at [time]" showing after updating recurring event

    Greetings The Events Calendar folks,

    I am seeing the message (screenshot attached) saying “One event on invalid date at…” after I set the “once” dates. The format changes from “mm/dd/yyyy” to “yyyy-mm-dd”. The event shows up on the correct date, but the default “Recurrence Description” uses that phrase “One event on invalid date at 5:00pm” (or whatever the time of the event is).

    This appears to only be a problem if I don’t insert a custom “Recurrence Description”. It occurs to me it may be associated with the sort order bug going on when you click “(see all)”. Just a speculation.

    Apologies for the delayed response, Jonathan – and I’m sorry this bug has bitten you.

    It is on our radar already and we’ll do our best to ship a fix soon (realistically, that will not be the very next Events Calendar PRO release, however).

    Hey there! This thread has been pretty quiet for the last three weeks, so we’re going to go ahead and close it to avoid confusion with other topics. If you’re still looking for help with this, please do open a new thread, reference this one and we’d be more than happy to continue the conversation over there.

    Thanks so much!
