    Why should I install the plugins outside the plugin directory?
    widgets.php exists twice and is not part of the plugins part but instead of the core part of wordpress.
    If I put your plugins into the plugin directory then they fail to load.

    I’m having the same problem as Daniel. Can someone please help? I get the errors:

    Warning: widget_king_calendar_register(widgets.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/content/j/a/m/jamiepalmer/html/blog/wp-content/plugins/king-calendar.php on line 378

    and

    Warning: widget_king_calendar_register(): Failed opening ‚widgets.php‘ for inclusion (include_path=‘.:/usr/local/lib/php‘) in /home/content/j/a/m/jamiepalmer/html/blog/wp-content/plugins/king-calendar.php on line 378

    Just tell me if I ma right or wrong!

    You can have many calendars
    You can have only one event calendar

    Bottom line, if you would like to have:
    one event calendar to show Tele Seminars Date
    a second one to show Live Seminars Date…

    it is not possible!

    Fantastic King lines of product! Keep the good work!

    how about a checkbox indicating „show only to authenticated users“. I only show the general category to guests but if i place the category widget (or the calendar widget) then the user can gain access to the rest of the blog without signing in or registering. I think adding this option would make your already excellent widgets more useful.

    For now i have solved it by placing the following code at the start of the main funcion of the categories and calendar widgets:

    global $user_ID;
    if ((!$user_ID))
    return;

    The activate King Calendar Widget was way at the bottom and I didn’t see it. Now everything is fine.

    Thanks you!

    please check your folders -> must be plugins/king-includes for framework and the king kalendar just in the same place as widgets.php

  9. 10.08.2006 at 19:10

    I have installed the „king-includes_0.68″ into my plug-ins folder and activated it. I then put the „king-calendar_0.61″ into my widgets folder. I uploaded into a folder called „king-calendar_0.61″ and I also put the „king-calendar.php“ into the root of the „wodgets folder.

    I can not get the calendar widget to sho up in the sidebar widgets menu.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Great plug-in! I’m using it with Event (used it on previous blogs and really liked being able to keep event posts separate and stop them appearing on the front page).

    I’d like to have two King Calendars showing two different categories, TV and Fun. I’ve set Event to show anything categorised as Calendar and so would like the two King Calendars to show:

    – KingCalendar1 – show posts categorised as Calendar(parent) and TV(child)
    – KingCalendar2 – show Calendar (parent) and Fun(child)

    Can the plug-in do this? If not, is it something you’d consider building into any future releases? Please? Pretty please…

    Cheers

    I found an error :

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function: ec3_get_calendar() in /home/indo.pramudita.com/wp-content/plugins/widgets/king-calendar.php on line 97

    where is ec3_get_calendar() function ?

    Thanks

    You have great stuff here! For a newb blogger with a quick learning curve, your work has really helped!

    You mention that you might be adding 30boxes functionality.

    I have been looking for a tool that would combine the post listing functionality of the WP calendar with the event listing of 30boxes, and this sounds like it would handle both.

    Am I right?

    Thanks so much for all of your work!

    please check if the king-includes are in the right directory.
    also there seems to be missing a slash after the abspath.

    Okay, what am I missing? I keep getting an error, and I know I’m staring right at the answer, but I’m working on only one cup of coffee.

    I’ve installed the framework and the calendar widget, however, I’m receiving the error:
    Warning: main(ABSPATHwp-content/plugins/king-includes/library/king_widget_functions.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/digitald/public_html/blog/wp-content/plugins/king-calendar.php on line 399

    Fatal error: main(): Failed opening required ‚ABSPATHwp-content/plugins/king-includes/library/king_widget_functions.php‘ (include_path=‘.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php‘) in /home/digitald/public_html/blog/wp-content/plugins/king-calendar.php on line 399

    Any assistance will be most appreciated.

    Thanks!!

    Hallo!
    Ich benutze dein KingCalendar Widget und den EventCalendar. Es funktioniert soweit auch alles, bis auf die Darstellung der Events als Liste. Gibts dafür eine Lösung oder ist das noch nicht implementiert?

    Ich hoffe auf eine schnelle Antwort!

    Danke!
