BETA v3.1._pre16 Released

Version 3.1 is now basically feature complete. Hopefully this will be the last beta before the stable release. Please remind me on any outstanding bugs that have not been dealt with.

Quite a few things have changed since v3.1._pre15, so expect a few new gremlins have crept in too. Keep your eyes peeled!

Thanks to everyone for their help and support. Special thanks this time to our three translators Gerjan Boer, Marc Schumann and Realf Ording Helgesen, and to Steve Winton.

The translations need correcting now, as I’ve been changing things and adding extra controls. It would be great if you could give them a look over. Anyone else who wants to contribute a translation: go for it! I don’t anticipate that the string list will change very much from now on.


Timezone support added.
Translations now available.
Bugs fixed.


Times in exported iCalendar files are now converted from the local timezone into UTC. The local timezone is either taken from WordPress’ “offset hours” setting, or you can set it explicitly on the EventCalendar Options screen. WordPress doesn’t know anything about daylight savings, so it’s better to choose a timezone.

Relative dates are now timezone aware. This means that events will remain on the upcoming events list until the end of the LOCAL day, rather than the end of the GREENWICH day.

K2 sidebar module is now split into two; ‘Event Calendar’ and ‘Upcoming Events’. It now matches the ‘Sidebar Widgets’ organisation.

Fixed 404 with no future events. (Thanks to Steve Winton for reporting the problem.)

No longer relies upon ‘IGNORE’ syntax in MySQL 4.1+. Some people do insist on using old versions.

Uses webcal:// protocol for iCal link on Mac OS X.
