Event_Calendar errors

I'm getting a "Form is missing __token or __ts fields" error when adding or editing an event.

Also, when viewing events, it is not showing the time or the date. Simply defaulting to "1 Jan 1970"

Any suggestions?

  • Those features all work fine for me under Elgg 1.7.

    So either you are not using the latest version of the plugin, you have another plugin interfering with the event calendar, or both.

    The date error is almost certainly caused by another plugin interfering with the event calendar's date picker.

    What version of Elgg are you using?

  • Hello,

     

    I have the same problem. I'm using Elgg 1.7 and event_calendar Version: 0.82. I have past below the list of all the plugins I am using (without the Curverider's plugins):

  • Hi,

    After disabling/enabling all plugins, I found out that 2 of them are the sources of two different problems with event_calendar.

    Task 1.6 (curverider): when this plugin is enabled, the calendar used to pick up the dates is not anymore visible. Only the numbers are.

    Profile_manager 5.3 (Coldtrick IT Solutions): this one seems to the the main problem. When enabled, the date goes back to 01/01/1970.

    Unfortunately, I really need those 3 features in my site (calendar, profile manager, tasks)!

  • Curverider has put the date picker in core in the version of Elgg in SVN. So in future, hopefully plugins will not need to include their own date pickers and these conflicts will not occur.

    For now, you could try the form suite of plugins instead of the profile manager. The form suite does not include a date picker and so is compatible with the event calendar.

  • Thanks for your answer. I will test the form suite and keep you updated if I still encounter some issues.
