    Hi Pippin,
    Please excuse my newb q’s as I am just getting up to speed with WP. I am wondering why the calendar is not displaying full width. Also starupsocal.org/events does not render a page, and I am wondering where I can edit the color of the buttons shown on the calendar page (and elsewhere – in green).
    Thank you for you help.

      Can you show me a page where the calendar is?

      starupsocal.org/events is not showing as a calendar because that is the event archive. Change the slug of that page to “calendar” (or similar) and then it should work.

    • Steve

      OK the reference on page slug helped, as I was not paying attention to slugs and using the default. I have changed that setting to use the post name now. So the page http://startupsocal.org/calendar/ is the page I created as “Menu” in the header where I put [sc_events_calendar] in the body to render the calendar. It is all squished to the center and I am thinking it is some default formatting but I am not sure where to look. Thank you for you help.

      Also, is there a bug that has the minutes displaying as only one “0” for the default?

    • Pippin

      That’s just caused by the styling / layout of the default Twenty Fourteen theme. You’ll notice that it varies a little theme to theme.

    Hello Pippin,

    Is there any way to increase the text size of events listed under each day in the monthly view? From the code I was able to identify my H2 is being used for month, but am unable to find what font/size is being used for the text.

    Thank you so much!

      Are you familiar with CSS?

    • Samantha

      Good morning Pippin,

      Yes I am, I am also familiar with the how to amend the code for both plug ins and themes.

      Thanks!,

      Samantha

    • Pippin

      See my reply on the other post you commented on :)

    • Pippin

      See my comment above.

  3. Samantha

    Hi Pippin, can you explain how to increase the size in the calendar text in the monthly view for events? I am familiar with CSS.

    • Pippin

      You can do:

      .sc_day_div { font-size: 18px; }
    • Samantha

      Pippin you are the best!!! Any way to make the text bold as well?

    • Pippin

      Add: `font-weight: 500;` to it.

    Hi Pippin

    I’d like to use your plugin, but the /events slug is already in use on my website.

    When I installed the plugin, it overwrote my /events page with the plugin’s. I couldn’t access my original page anymore. So I uninstalled the plugin and now the /events slug just redirects to the homepage of my site. My original /events page is still inaccessible.

    Do you know how I could reclaim the /events slug for my original page? Also, is it possible to use this plug in but have it populate a different page, say /calendar for example.

    Thanks for what looks like a great plugin.

    Andy

    • Pippin

      Go to Settings > Permalinks and click “Save Changes” and it will probably come back.

      The /events slug cannot be changed in the plugin, so if you’d like to use it, you’ll need to change the slug of your existing events page.

    • Andy

      The permalinks fix worked a treat – thank you! For now I prefer to keep the /events slug for my page. Thanks again for you help.

      Glad to hear it!

  5. Garry

    Is there a way to sync this calendar with our organization’s Facebook events?

    • Pippin

      Not out of the box, sorry.

  6. Betsy

    Hi. Is there a way to center the calendar on my page?

    • Pippin

      Yep! Are you familiar with CSS?

  7. Me & My House

    Can I post the short code in my sidebar to show the calendar there? Can I add some code to it to make it display smaller, to fit in the sidebar? Thanks.

    • Pippin

      No, sorry, but the paid version does include a calendar widget to do that.

  8. Massimo

    Hi Pippin is it possible calendar day month year italian translate?
    waiting your repond

    • Pippin

      Yes it’s possible. The plugin is ready for translation. All you’ll need to do is supply the .mo file.

  9. tfbkny

    Thanks for the free version simple in concept but got a few issues.

    – The date/time show in undesired place (top of post) and there is no way to control placement

    – The buttons show as flat rectangles with rounded corner, not with the style as pictured in the screenshots

    – Past events shows a “Blog Archive” header atop the list which should not be there as those are events not blog posts

    Not using the plugin due to the above issues, hopefully will be addressed soon… it would’ve been quite nice to be able to use it.

    Thanks :)

    • Pippin

      1. Could you show me an example of how it’s displaying for you?

      2. Those are controlled by your theme. The plugin keeps it simple so that the buttons inherit the styles in your theme.

      3. That’s also controlled by your theme. If you’re comfortable with editing theme template files, I can show you how to address it.

  10. Martin

    Hi Pippin! Thank you for the plugin. Is there a wy in the lite version to show the events in a list with an shortcode of something?

    waiting for your respond,

    thanks

    • Pippin

      No, sorry, that’s only in the paid version.

  11. Talina

    I’m working with the free version for a client and am considering upgrading. I need to have a single list of events below the calendar view- without the event’s details/ descriptions. Is this possible with the paid version?

    Also, why is it displaying wonky on my site? The header grey seems to be too short? http://www.mainstreetgolconda.org/new/calendar-of-events/

    • Pippin

      Do you mean just a list of event titles?

      The header height is caused by a minor CSS conflict with your theme. Are you familiar with CSS?

  12. Laurens

    Hello Pippin,

    First of all: nice work your calendar! I’m wondering if I can change button language? Probably somewhere in the code of your plugin, but then it’ll be gone after an update? The rest of the plugin is already translated. Can you help me out please?

  13. Georganne

    Hi Pippin,
    How do I disable my name from appearing at the bottom of an event details page?
    The calendar looks great, but I don’t want my name there at the bottom of the page for each event’s details.

    • Pippin

      You will need to edit your theme template files to remove that.
