Upcoming Events widget lists wrong times

  1. The feed is from my google calendar and it is set up with the correct time zone. Previously I was using a RSS feed from my calendar to do the same thing and while the info didn't display as nicely the time was correct. How do I get the correct time to display when using this widget?

    The blog I need help with is

  2. Hi there,
    I have flagged this thread for Staff assistance.

  3. Thanks. I wonder if anyone else has encountered this problem. I guess I can always go back to using an RSS feed, but I'll wait a bit and see if there's a solution.

  4. Staff have many threads waiting for them so you have to be patient.

  5. I currently see 'Brink Lounge December 14, 2012 at 2:00 am – 5:00 am' in your widget. Is this time similar to the time in the calendar itself?

  6. +1, as explained in

    please Staff take a look at fixing this widget, as it is useful and efficient... but bugged.

  7. Our developers are now aware of the issue. I'll contact you as soon this is fixed.

    Sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience.

  8. The time of the Brink Lounge event in my calendar reads 8-11pm CST.

  13. Thanks very much for quickly solving this bug!

  14. Thanks

  15. Upcoming events widget
    The new widget is really welcome, but I've put it into my site and it sets the bold heading as the venue, not the event title, is there a way of changing this please? Many thanks.

  16. The Upcoming Events widget on does not match the times on my google calendar .

    There are two events on the calendar for today. One of them shows the correct time and one doesn't! The events were created at different time.

    Thank you for your attention to this matter.

  17. Hi, I have the same issue. I have a windows Vista and my icalendar did not syncronize with my my upcoming events. My friend who has an apple computer syncronized.

  18. The problem was fixed but has returned. All my events are listed for 2-5am, 3-6am, etc. These should read 8-11pm etc.

  19. We are also having this issue with the time listed for our events. Please Advise.

  20. I need help on 2 issues please:

    1. I am mvretro2026's friend. I thought it shows the correct time in my Apple computer but it reverted back to the incorrect time so it looks like the bug has not been fixed yet.

    2. Is there a way of having as the bolded heading the event title vs the venue? I realize Upcoming Events widget was created with musicians in mind so they show their venues. Is there a workaround?

  21. The bolded heading issue has been reported to our developers. I'll keep you informed.

    For those with time/date issues, could you please try clearing out your cache?

    Sorry for the inconvenience.

  22. Cache cleared - problem persists. Cleared cookies - problem fixed.


  23. I've cleared my cache and my cookies and fixed for a minute but defaults back to the wrong time. In my calendar time is 1-5 pm and in the upcoming events it's 9pm - 1am. time zone is set to -8 but for some reason its adding 8 hours to upcoming events.

    Please help.

  24. Cleaning cache or cookies does not help. Widget continues listing wrong times.

  25. Do you notice any difference if you add one or two new dates to the original calendar?

    Please note that the widget refreshes hourly, so you might need to wait any hour before you notice any difference.

  26. I have the same issues with my blog (; tried fixing it on Google Calendar and it still persists.

    Thanks to the staff for their effort, I hope this issue is solved soon.


  27. I also have this issue on When I first entered a calendar event on Google, it appeared correctly on the blog. But when I went back to correct the end time on Google, the blog started showing 3 hours off.

  28. Do you notice any difference if you add one or two new dates to the original calendar?

    Please note that the widget refreshes hourly, so you might need to wait any hour before you notice any difference.

    I also have the same problem with my blog The Google calendar from the widget is not correctly showing the correct time zone, although it is correct in the WordPress time zone settings and on the Google calendar with the Pacific Coast time zone. My event time is showing at exactly 8 hours later which puts it at 2:30 a.m. the following day, instead of 6:30 p.m. the evening before. I have reset it and also waiting for about 8 hours. The issue still exits. I hope this issue is resolved quickly. Thank you for your help.

    To answer your above question, yes, I have added new dates waited several hours, and it continues to be a problem.
