I also have a strange behaviour with event dates. Sometimes, the end date disappear after saving it. I think this problem is related to languages used on Wordpress (or on the OS). We work in French and the date format is probably in cause.
A very weird thing is when I look a all the events in the backend, The start dates a show in French (ie. Fév / 19 / 2017) and the End dates are shown in English (ie. Feb / 19 / 2017). This is probably related to the dates disappearing.
Any idea how to solve this issue?
I see that the comment from xirb and his screencast shows that he also works in a other language than English.
Can you please let me know what version of the theme you are currently using and also if the issue with the event date disappearing happens for old posts only or new posts as well? I haven’t been able to recreate the issue (even testing with another language) so if you can confirm those 2 things it may help me better test – thanks!
The version is 3.6.5
It also happens with new posts.
My guess is that it’s related to the operating system language (or a function that translate/convert dates). As you can see in this screenshot (https://ibb.co/mVUzVk), the start date column is in French, and the End date is in English.
So, here’s a problem that’s been cropping up recently and causing havoc – When I set the dates for an event (using the calendar selection thing) it initially puts the days in as YYYY-MM-DD eg: 2017-06-19. Then when I save the event.. and have a look, the event edit page has listed them as MM/DD/YYYY eg: 06/19/2017 . And THEN.. if I make further edits on the event, but don’t reset the dates again using the calendar selector – the dates are erased entirely.
On the FRONT end – the events listing seems to keep the dates correctly, but the events Calendar, forgets that it ever existed and does not list the event
My support has expired, so I can’t go to your site, but this is a brand new (seemingly) problem
PS: I’m using theme version 3.6.5

Did you happen to find a solution on vgStef and my own problems with the date format?
I’m going to be uploading an update shortly with some fixes! If you still have issues after the update please let me know.
I’ve tried using the item support at https://wpexplorer-themes.com/support/ but the form won’t submit. I’ve tried both in Chrome, Firefox and Chrome > Canary. So I’m posting my issue here.
I'm having a problem with the Calendar of Events on my site http://bendbellacyclists.org.
I created a site using this theme several years ago. It’s been great. However, recently the calendar stopped working.
I have entries that look something like this for over a year. I just recently noticed because my page is timing out with a 504 error.
Wed Jun 07 23:35:39 2017 [client 220.127.116.11] PHP Warning: mktime() expects parameter 6 to be long, string given in /var/www/vhosts/bendbellacyclists.org/httpdocs/wp-content/themes/Earth/functions/calendar.php on line 181, referer: http://bendbellacyclists.org/
Wed Jun 07 23:35:42 2017 [client 18.104.22.168] PHP Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 60 seconds exceeded in /var/www/vhosts/bendbellacyclists.org/httpdocs/wp-content/themes/Earth/functions/calendar.php on line 205, referer: http://bendbellacyclists.org/
So, I’ve purchased the theme again hoping I could either
1. Get support to fix the calendar script or
2. Have you provide me easy upgrade instructions so I can upgrade the theme in as few steps as possible with the goal if fixing the calendar and keeping any other changes to a minimum at the moment.
That’s very strange that you couldn’t submit a ticket, I double checked and we’ve received a ton since you posted this comment and it is working for me.
- I do see your theme version is extremely old. But it doesn’t have any huge modifications so updating should be simple.
- Can you try the ticket submission form again? If you recently renewed your support it can take some time for the Envato API to reflect it and that may have been the issue. If you send me temp WP/FTP logins I can fix this issue manually for you so you don’t have to fully update everything at this point.
- I am working on a big update of the theme to hopefully release in the next 1-3 days. I haven’t noticed this specific issue though. Based on the error it sounds like there may be an event on the site that has a strange value for the date, did you try double checking some? I personally don’t see any error when visiting your site so if you can also share a screenshot that would be very helpful – thanks!
It appears that my site is not coming out cell phone format. Is there something that I need to fix? www.essentiallydogs.com
I’m not sure what you mean…This is what I see – https://cl.ly/lWWM – is that not correct?
Only the Flash Sales page. I had someone fix it. Does it look right to you on mobile? http://essentiallydogs.com/flash-sales
I had someone fix it, but I don’t know if he did the right thing. Do you know web peoplle I could hire? I don’t have much money and I don’t know who to trust.
Looks fine to me.
I don’t actually have any recommended freelancers I am the only developer over here, our company is just me and my girlfriend so we are small. But I should work on getting a list of recommended developers since people do ask from time to time.
ps: The new version of Earth which is coming shortly will have some basic support for the very popular WooCommerce plugin so you can set up your own shop, that may be something you’d be interested in seeing that you are selling some products via a 3rd party. I’m working on updating the demo now to add an example of the shop.
i was able to duplicate the donate button inside of of header.php. Also create another link and both seemed clunky. Can support help me duplicate the donate button beside the existing one but be a sign up button? Or do you think it is easier to create 2 with custom icons? If so I can renew support again
If you want to share the URL you are working on so I can see what you’ve done and help with the CSS?
ps: You could also consider maybe switching to our newer Total theme which has more options for the header, also includes a page builder and support for the Events Calendar plugin (example http://totaltheme.wpengine.com/sustainable/) more info – http://totalwptheme.com/ (the reason I suggest is because quite a bit of customers have done that).
I have since been able to achieve a second functioning button, however at smaller screen sizes the 2nd button overlaps some and doesn’t fill the width. i have tried many combinations of position and width. My guess is creating a new @media rule in the css.
The mobile menu doesn’t show up when the main menu gets hidden by responsive.css file.. What’s best way to fix? I’m still waiting your reply to my mail though..
The mobile menu is working fine on my live demo – http://wpexplorer-demos.com/earth/ – I don’t see any errors in the console on your site so not sure why it isn’t working. Can you try disabling plugins to see if any are breaking it?
I see the ticket…I will try and finish the Earth update today and push it out and get back to you. I had to push the earth update back a bit, but I’ve made you wait too long (sorry). I have about 6 hours left for the update I’ll try my best to get it done and out today. If I have the time I’ll probably edit the mobile menu to work differently as well using the same script as this theme – http://wpexplorer-demos.com/newyork/
Thank you for all your patience!
Ok fixed, thanks
Hello, I had an older version of this theme and just upgraded to the latest, when I upgraded, my slider on the site disappeared, I’m unable to put it back again on the new theme or find the setting to show on the web unless I go back to the older theme. My slider pictures are published/ Can you please assist? http://coronalaurelwoodhoa.com/
I do see a slider at the top of the site – https://cl.ly/lX2f – did you manage to fix things?
ps: Huge update 4.0 to be released by the end of today with many improvements and optimizations to the backend code.
Thanks for the quick reply, I had to roll back to the old theme (previous earth version I had) to get the slider back at the top of the site. Should I wait then for the 4.0 release?
I would wait for 4.0 to update. If you still have issues after let me know but you’ll need to keep the site broken if it is so that I can inspect the code and see why it may be breaking.
ps: You could also consider making a slider with the included LayerSlider plugin as well which has more options and animations.
Thank you, will wait. I tried to use the LayerSlider plugin but the licensing on my account was not found yet, perhaps because it was a recent purchase. I will check in a few hours to activate licensing.
You can’t activate the license for the plugin because it’s a bundled item. But the license isn’t really used for anything (I don’t think they’ve added any premium addons) so you can still create sliders just fine.
Hello, I have downloaded and installed the new code. My slider still not showing up on the new code, if I go back to the previous code I see no issues, Can you take a look at it? Also, FAQs page does not show them by category anymore. http://coronalaurelwoodhoa.com. Appreciate your help.
How did you proceed with the update? Did you update via FTP? And if so did you make sure to delete all old files before uploading the new ones?
Looking at the backend there isn’t any broken slider it appears that the slider is just not enabled in the theme options. Depending how the update was done if not done correctly it may have reset the theme options.
FAQ by Category is working when testing locally and I don’t see any issue with the code.
The changelog is here – https://wpexplorer-themes.com/earth/changelog/
And you can see the new implementation for WooCommerce on the live demo here – http://wpexplorer-demos.com/earth/shop/
Lots of great changes If you have any issues with the update just let me know!
Any chance you can tweak this theme to also work with Easy Digital Downloads?
Easy Digital Downloads will work with any theme but Earth doesn’t have any custom CSS for it to make the plugin design match the theme.
I imported an example so you can see – https://cl.ly/lhAy (the buttons need some fixing and as you can see maybe some basic CSS to make the grids look nice).
I can definitely add this to my todo list but not sure when I would be able to get around to implementing full support for the plugin. Right now I am working on a big update for my most popular theme “Total” – https://themeforest.net/item/total-responsive-multipurpose-wordpress-theme/6339019
Earth does support WooCommerce though by default which also accepts digital goods. It may be a bit more bulky though then EDD as I do know that plugin is quite a bit slimmer since Pippin sells a ton of add-ons (I used to have my own shop using EDD and it cost like $700 for all the extensions I needed). Both great plugins though
Aj, thanks for your reply, much appreciated. I like the Earth theme as it is tight and would work well for an EDD setup. WooCommerce just does not cut it for a digital marketplace but totally understand where you’re coming from. Thx
I am totally open for implementing CSS for EDD – I added it to my todo list. Or if you do purchase the theme and have any issues or want any help with some styling I can assist with that just let me know!
Hi AJ – I just left a message via slack but thought I’d leave one here as well just in case. I updated to version 4.0 and the homepage slider is not showing up. I’m using the built in slider but it’s not displaying. Any thoughts? Thanks!
AJ – I just did a fresh install with Earth version 4.0 and could never get the built in slider to display. Could you let me know if that is what you are getting on your end? Thanks in advance!
