Montezuma and The Events Calendar

Hi Guys

Newbie here in all senses! I am starting to look at creating a new website for our non profit sea sports club.

I love the Montezuma theme and think it is ideal for the website I am thinking about. We also have multiple events calendars, which "the events calendar" does very well, and better than most other plugins i have tried.

The problem I have is that the events calendar refuses to render at all with this theme. If i choose Default events template in the events calendar settings all styles / css seems to fail and I end up with the page displaying just unformatted text as per image attached. If i choose default page template, then some style is added but still no table buttons or anything is shown (this is how it is currently set up at http://www.orssc.asn.au/test/events/category/whats-on/)

Can anyone give me some pointers as to where to look to resolve this issue. I am useless or worse at PHP and css, but can hack around a little. I have tried twenty twelve / thirteen and it works with them.

thanks in advance

Steve

just as a bit more info, if i use the default events template so that the screen looks like the above screen shot, and inspect the page (using chrome) then the head section is totally empty..

Well I thought I had replied to myself?

Having set the template in the event calendar to default event template and also using the full style setting (so that the page looks like the above screen shot), inspecting the code for the page shows that the head section becomes completely empty. This is not the case if the default page template is used in the event calendar, but then the table doesn't render at all and ends up looking like the website is at the moment.

If you have a look at the website and its not montezuma, i'm trying other themes to see if i can get something similarly nice and working with the calendar plugin

Thanks for the response. I did mention in the original post (although not very clearly) that I had tried this option. To Clarify, this is what I see when I use the suggested settings (see attached picture)

I'm not having many issues getting the events calendar display to work on other themes, so assume that it is a theme issue.

Any further suggestions would be appreciated

Steve

I'd love to try and help you but I've just spent 1/2 hour trying to get the calendar to display in twenty twelve. This has to have the worst documentation I've seen. Now where can I find how to display the calendar, ie what short code to use or what I add to a page. nada

so if you want to writeup step by step instructions on how to install and add a page and get the calendar to display in twenty-twelve, then I'll take a look.

Hi and thanks... sorry for the frustration.

Its actually quite easy to use, and suits my simple non coding brain!

I wanted and events calendar I could add to my Nav menu (so each section of the sea sports club could have their own calendar)

If you create some events and event categories first. Then you go to menu and in menu 2 new types have been added to the selection. Event categories and events. drag and drop them to the nav an voila! no shortcode required! Its how me as a non coder imagines it would work.. hence the reason it made sense to me.

I believe the page is created under /events and the calendar is filtered based on the event category.

It works well for us as I can assign angling events, power boat events, social events, sailing events etc and then add each on of these into the subnav menus of the sections.

I hope my explanation makes sense..?

Steve

ps.. I've flipped over to responsive in the short term just to frame out some ideas.. and so that I can show the management committee how I intend to move forwards, however montezuma is still sitting there waiting to be activated!

well I've played a bit and without digging very deep into this, I'd have to say that this plugin and Montezuma are playing well together.

It's possible that there is a fix, but I don't have anymore free time to look into it, sorry.

Do I assume that you meant to say 'aren't working well together'

I understand (as my free time is rare too) so thank you for taking the time, i'll keep an eye on the theme and see if anything changes..

Thanks again

Steve
