Invalid value

Unread post by dfielden » Sat Apr 13, 2019 7:43 pm

When trying to add the Upcoming Events widget in the WordPress customizer, it appears to add the widget on the preview screen, but I get an error saying "Invalid value." and nothing else. If I try to publish the page, I get an error "Unable to save due to 1 invalid setting". I'm using Version 1.3.13 of Calendar and WordPress 5.1.1. Otherwise Calendar is working. Any ideas?

For a page, you need to use shortcodes, such as

Code: Select all

[calendar type=”upcoming”]
For sidebars you can use the widget. I have both tested as working in WordPress 5.1

Hi - Having the same challenge.

I'm building an offline copy of the church's web site to test and prepare for upgrading to WP5.5 :(

I'm using the customize page from the dashboard to add the upcoming events widget back into the home page (see www.knaphillbaptist.org.uk)

When I click Publish - I get the same error as the OP.

see - http://www.knaphillbaptist.org.uk/wp-co ... enshot.jpg

not sure where to go next :(

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Try entering category IDs in the empty box there, just put them all in if you want all of them, like 1,2,3,4 etc.
