WordPress Meetup Plugin

WordPress is the Content Management System (CMS) that powers 14% of the world’s best websites. Meetup is used by 9.5 million members to connect with each other more than 2,000 times every single day in their local communities. Linking an organization’s Meetup events with their WordPress site has never been easy or efficient. Until now. The WP Meetup plugin makes keeping your organization’s members updated quick and easy. Fetching event information directly from Meetup.com, WP Meetup plugin provides an event calendar for displaying upcoming events either on a page or as a widget.

New in version 2.0!

  • Multiple Groups, One Calendar! Organizations seeking to create a comprehensive calendar of events can now collect events from multiple Meetup groups. Each group gets their own color highlight on the calendar. If you have a partner organization, or you organize multiple groups, we designed this feature with you in mind.
  • Multiple Months of Events You can now show multiple months of events, both past and future. Let your organization’s members know far in advance of special events, and have an easy way to show potential members some of your recent events.
  • New Calendar Widget The previous versions of WP Meetup included a calendar widget for displaying a small calendar of events in the widget area. Version 2.0 adds a second widget option: a calendar that displays seven upcoming events, each next to the day they occur.
  • Improved Stability We’ve taken care to improve the plugin’s table use and database structure. The result is a far more stable system for building calendars.
  • New Admin Page You’ll also notice a new admin page called, “Debug Information.” If a problem does arise, this page contains some useful information we can use to help solve your problem faster.
It has never been easier to aggregate and display events, and it has never been easier to keep your organization’s members in the loop.

Installation

  1. Download WP Meetup from WordPress.org
  2. Upload wp-meetup.zip to your /wp-content/plugins directory.
  3. Activate the plugin through the “Plugins” area in the WordPress admin area.
  4. Visit the options page located at Settings -> WP Meetup and follow the instructions.
To include the event calendar on a page, create a new page and in the content editor, enter [wp-meetup-calendar] where you want the calendar to appear on the page.

     I just downloaded version 1.0 from wordpress.org today.  There seems to be a fatal error being thrown that prevents it from installing.  The error is because in events.php you call parent::WP_Meetup_Model(); which doesn’t exist. WP_Meetup_Model is just an empty class.  If you want to write using old school php 4 code then you should also create a WP_Meetup_Model method in WP_Meetup_Model and have it call it’s parent constructor parent::WP_Meetup();.

    Also, it would be great if your plugin supported more then one meetup.  I’m looking for something like this for our community site and I want to aggregate all the tech meetups in Madison, WI.

    • Anonymous

      Version 1.0.1 is posted.  I’d really appreciate it if you would let me know if it works for you.

      • http://blog.andrewshell.org/ Andrew Shell

        I just installed it and it seems to work great.  Unfortunately it doesn’t currently have the features I need for my site.  My use case requires that I can add multiple meetups and have them updated automatically (via cron or whatnot).  The plugin looks great though and hopefully I’ll be able to use a later version.  Keep up the good work.

        • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

          Hey Andrew,

          We will look into installing those features. I can see how they would be very useful to the Meetup and WordPress community. I will post it here when they are integrated.

          If you wouldn’t mind giving us a review and a “it works” thumbs up that would be great :) 

          • http://blog.andrewshell.org/ Andrew Shell

            Awesome I’ll take a look. :)

        • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

          Hey Andrew,

          We installed the features you were interested in.

           Hope you enjoy the plugin!

  • Chris LaRose

    Thanks for you feedback.  I think I’m going to go ahead and change the constructors all to the PHP5-style __construct(), because I bet the plugin won’t even run on PHP4, so there’s no use keeping deprecated practices.  just need some help recreating the error, so I know it’s fixed.  What version of WP are you running?  PHP version?

    And I didn’t think to allow multiple meetup groups, but that sounds like a great idea for a near-future update.

  • Steve

    Looks good… are there any plans to auto-create a post_type… not just a standard post?

    • Anonymous

      I think it would definitely be helpful, especially for developers that want to manipulate how the posts appear.  The event-to-(regular)post functionality is inelegant, though very easy for non-developers, so think the idea is certainly viable for a future release.

    • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

      Hey Steve,

      We just released an auto-create post_type WP_Meetup plugin. If you have a chance, please check it out and tell us what you think.

      Thanks!

  • Sina Khanifar

    Thanks so much for setting this up Chris!

    One small problem/bug I’ve noticed on our community website is that if there’s no events displayed for the current month, but one in the following month, the calendar for the current month is shown anyway. Check it out on our site here: http://ousnorcal.org/ and here is a screenshot just in case: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/3155588/ishot-125.png (we have an event scheduled for december only).

    It might also be useful to add a “See all events” link at the bottom of the calendar, or maybe enable a way to view multiple months from the widget (though I guess this last option envolves a lot of work).

    Thanks again!

    • Sina Khanifar

      Also, the event pages themselves seem to give a 404 page not found HTTP response. For example here: http://ousnorcal.org/grace-cathedral-tour-reception-with-the-dean – any ideas on how to fix that?

      • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

        Sina, 

        Thanks for the feedback. I will have Chris get back to you ASAP. I love the feature ideas and we are looking to add more features, so keep them coming. :) As for your current problem have you tried to erase the event posts on your blog via the post area and then “Update Event Posts” on the Event page of the WP-Meetup plugin? 

        Thanks again and Chris will get back to you within the next couple days. 

  • Zuddd

    The calendar is not showing the correct times of the meetup events. 

  • Dave Bauer

    Hi,

    I am having trouble using this. It claims the URL for my group is invalid. I copied it from the URL bar and it looks fine to me. I tried with with and without the trailing slash.

    Any ideas?

    The URL looks like http://www.meetup.com/capitaldistrictskeptics/ 

    • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

      Hey Dave,

      It works fine on our testing site. It might be that meetup.com had some downtime or a variety of other issues. I would try it again now and see if it works. If not, uninstall and reinstall the plugin and try it again. If it still doesn’t work, post a follow up comment and we will see if we can try something else. 

      • Occupy Stockton

        I’m having the same issue and reinstalling did not help.  Does the widget handle the “everywhere” communities as well?  That might be the problem with mine (not sure about Dave’s)

        • Dave Bauer

          Mine is a community with a location. I tried again and it did not help. It doesn’t apear to be an intermittent issue with meetup.com.

          I look forward to the next release, thanks!

  • Casey

    Where can I change the red color that is behind the days of the week on the widget? Thanks!

    • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

      Hey Casey,

      Thanks for asking. If you go to your widget editor and select wp-meetup plugin and then select the wp-meetup/global.css you can manipulate how the plugin works. If you are looking to change the style of the days of the week widget. I should manipulate this area. 

      /** * Widget calendar */#wp-meetup-widget-calendar {    }#wp-meetup-widget-calendar table {    width: 100%;}#wp-meetup-widget-calendar table caption {    text-align: center;    font-weight: bold;}#wp-meetup-widget-calendar thead {    background: #E51937;    color: #fff;}#wp-meetup-widget-calendar th {    font-weight: bold;}#wp-meetup-widget-calendar th, #wp-meetup-widget-calendar td {    padding: 3px;}

      I would copy the entire CSS file into a text editor and then play around with it. This way if you break something you can just copy and paste the old non-broken code back in. 

  • Zuddd

    Calendar appointments are not reflecting the correct time of the actual appointment in meetup.

    • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

      Hey Zuddd,

      Could you send us a link to your site and the meetup event where it is live? We are also getting ready to release the next release and we will double check this on our end. Thanks for you patience. Have a great weekend.

    • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

      Zuddd,

      Have you tried changing your time setting under Settings >> General on your WordPress admin panel? 

  • Occupy Stockton

    Hey guys, for some reason I keep getting the message that the URL is not a valid group or whatever.  If you go to http://www.meetup.com/occupytogether however it is a valid group.  What I want to pull in are the events from our community which is http://www.meetup.com/occupytogether/Stockton-CA/ … it won’t accept that as a valid group either.  I do web development for a living so you’re not dealing with someone tech impaired here, but I’m not as savvy with backend stuff and I’m a little uncertain where I could edit the php to fix this myself.  A little guidance would be most appreciated.  Thanks.

    • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

      Hey Occupy,

      We are getting ready to release the next version of the plugin and it should remedy the problem. If it doesn’t please give us a heads up and we will take a look at your particular situation. It is really weird that it isn’t working. I will tell you when the next version is released. Thanks! 

    • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

      To the 99% :) ,

      Our plugin isn’t really made for what you are doing (adding over 200 meetup groups); however, I would suggest that you add the top 20 or so meetup groups and then state that other groups can request to be added to the calendar if so desired. Does this work around work for you? We will be pushing out a new release tonight so you can tell us what you think. Hope this helps. 

      PS I have dropped by the Occupy Tucson event a few times. Keep up the good work!! 

    • http://minorityatheistsofmi.org/ Beautifulblackatheist

      I have installed, uninstalled and reinstalled only to receive the same message:
      What is the web address of the Meetup you want to embed?This was not a valid Meetup event address.

      • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

        Heya,

        Sometimes the meetup api hiccups a bit. I would give it a while and try it again. If it doesn’t work for you when you try it later. Please post back. I know it is weird but this has happened before. 

        Cheers :) 

  • http://worldimevents.com murraystewart

    I am building a site around a specific topic and wanted to display all upcoming events from meetup worldwide. is there a way to show search result around specific keyword terms across all groups rather than individual group/s?

    • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

      Hey Murray,

      Our widget doesn’t currently have those features. I will look around and see if there is anything else that does that. If not, I will put it on the feature integration list.

      Thanks! 

    • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

      Here is an answer directly from the developers at Meetup.

      If you wanted structured data you could query the open_events api by topic http://www.meetup.com/meetup_api/docs/2/open_events/#params If you wanted an rss xml feed you could use http://{topic.urlname}.meetup.com/newest/rss/ http://newtech.meetup.com/ is based on a topic “newtech” A user can get a feed of events in groups with this topic via http://newtech.meetup.com/newest/rss/ 

  • Samiam00

    just updated to 1.4, and now when i click on an event in the calendar, it goes to a bad url and can’t find the event page.  is this a result of the change to the post type in 1.4?  also, the plugin never automatically fetched events.  it has always required me to push “update event posts” to show any changes.

    • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

      Samiam00,

      Thanks for the heads up. We released it late last night and didn’t get a chance to check it out on our testing server. Please disable the plugin and I will give you a heads up when it is fixed. Sorry for the inconvenience. BTW, the updating issue is fixed in the new version of the plugin. 

    • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

      New version is out Sam I am :)

      • Samiam00

        got it, and it’s working.  thanks!

  • Anonymous

    I am having the same problem as Occupy Stockton and Dave Bauer. I put the group URL (http://www.meetup.com/James-River-Writers/) in the “Meetup.com Group URL:” field and it says, “The
    Group URL you entered isn’t valid.” If I use the same URL in a browser,
    it goes straight to the MeetUp group page with no problems.

    I have the MeetUp plugin v. 1.3 installed which is the only one
    available from the WordPress plugins page. I notice that Samiam00
    (below) installed the new release, 1.4. I can’t find a link to this
    anywhere. Will this solve the invalid group problem? Where can I get it
    to give it a go?

    • Anonymous

      We temporarily disabled v1.4 after samiam00’s comment, but you’re welcome to try it yourself at http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-meetup/download/.  There’s a link for 1.4 under other versions.

    • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

      Royd,

      The new version is out hope this fixes the problem. 

  • Anonymous

    Forget my last comment. In re-activating the plug in, I realized that I did a bad cut and paste on the API key (missed one character). Once that was corrected, it accepted the URL immediately.

  • http://twitter.com/FreshFiction FreshFiction

    I can’t seem to install 1.3. After I manually install in plugins directory and then try to activate the plug-in, I get a strange message “trying to open plugin.php” then my entire wordpress installation stalls, I have to delete the plug-in manually to get it back. Causing me a heart attack btw. I tried downloading the plugin from wordpress.org and from this site. Have tried three times now with same result. Can you check please? I’d like to try because I have an active meetup.com / eventbrite group and would like to include the calendar of events automatically.

    Thanks, Sara

    • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

      Sara,

      We have released a new version and hopefully it will fix all your problems. You may have to clear your browser cache after installing the new plugin. Hope this works for you. Please tell us if you continue to have problems. 

      Thanks! 

      • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

        PS we also added a nice upcoming event widget which can feature your next upcoming events. Thanks for staying committed to the agile development process. 

  • Anonymous

    Is there a way to control the content of the post coming into WordPress? Specifically, I’d like to omit the “Group” heading and name, but keep the Date and Venue information. I don’t see any parameters in the plugin interface on the dashboard to do this.

    Thanks,

    • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

      Royd,

      This is a great suggestion for our next release version. I will add it to our future feature list. Unfortunately, as of right now there is no way to do this via the interface. However, you can go and edit individual posts after they are created. 

  • BrianG

    With v1.4.1 installed I am getting the same problem described earlier…
    I put the group URL (http://www.meetup.com/Bend-Wordpress-and-Beer/) in the “Meetup.com Group URL:” field and it says, “The Group URL you entered isn’t valid.” If I use the same URL in a browser,it goes straight to the MeetUp group page with no problems.

    • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

      Brian: Love your Meetup group!!!! I just tried it on our testing site and it worked fine. You might what to try it again as sometimes meetup is sporadic. I will shoot this over to Chris to see, if he has any other insights. Please give us a heads up, if you get it working. 

      Thanks! 

  • roydmckelvey

    I’m experiencing some serious weirdness after updating my WP Meetup plugin to 1.4.1 yesterday. A buch of contradictory/confusing things are occurring. 

    When the plugin is activated, I get a number of posts from MeetUp on my home page, but none of the other posts show up. If I deactivate, the “normal” posts show up. Further, I had forty or so posts before the upgrade coming from MeetUp, but now it only shows around 10. Finally, the posts that had come from the plugin are now gone from the link on my “Posts” page on the dashboard. It says there are “43” of them, but if I drill down it says there are none!

    The calendar on the sidebar now says there are no events and therefore is not displayed.

    I’m not sure what to do. FYI, someone else reported very similar issues on the WordPress forum to which I added my issues (http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-wp-meetup-site-posts-gone-after-upgrade-to-wp-33?replies=2).

    What to do?

    • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

      Hey Royd,

      Sorry to took me 24 hours to get back to you. With some more advanced themes we have noted this problem and are working on fixing with the next update. For now I would revert back to one of the previous versions. Located here: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-meetup/download/

      Sorry for the hassel but we are working on it. Thanks for your patience. 

      • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

        Royd,

        We updated the plugin, please tell us if you have any problems. Please deselect “Include event posts on home page” option. 

        Thanks 

  • http://thevipexperience.net/ Ici57

    Just started using your plugin and it’s great EXCEPT!!!   Previous events are remaining on the upcoming events list…   I tried forcing an update but that didn’t work,,, I also noticed the “publish” date being way off… Some are dated even before the meetup group was created…  any thoughts???

    http://thevipexperience.net/ 

    • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

      Ici57,

      I looked at your site (Nice site btw) and it looks like the previous events have come off the upcoming events list. The plugin does automatic update calls to Meetup, so it is possible it just needed to update. 

      As for the published dates, they are intended to be way off. If the post was created the day of the event then it wouldn’t show up on your website until the day of the event. It looks like you have the 2 month option selected to it is predating the posts 2 months before the event. Does this make sense? 

      Thanks! 

  • Amber

    This plugin is exactly what I need but when I activate it, my menu and home page slider disappear.  It only does it for the home page and not the others.  I will try an older version of the plugin for now, but wanted to give a heads up for the next revision.  Thanks!

    • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

      Hey Amber,

      Try deselect “Include event posts on home page” option.  Tell me if this fixes the problem for  you? 

      Thanks

      • Adal

        That solution solved a totally different Javascript related problem for me. That option is dangerous and I suggest disabling it by default.

        • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

          Great idea! I will add it to our project map. 

  • joe

    Here is my site http://www.collectove-evolution.com
    When i try to click the meet ups in the sidebar it says the page isnt found.. any reason? Not sure what to do or change to fix this.

    • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

      Hey Joe,

      I would try setting the option to have events posted two months out and then update the events. If that doesn’t work then try uninstalling and reinstalling the plugin. If this doesn’t work please get back to us. 

      Thanks!

      • joe

        Will it create a working link for events already created? We have upcoming events that show up but they have been created already. I’m wondering if since they have been created already it doesn’t work with the plugin?

        • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

          Everything should work. Please just post any problem that you have. 

          Thx!

    When I add the groups URL and hit Update Options the screen just goes blank. Then when I reload the page nothing has changed, it still just says http://www.meetup.com/. Any thoughts?

    • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

      It might be that either your server or that Meetup.com’s server is slow at the moment. I would try it in a while and give it a minute to process. If you continue to have this problem, please tell us and we will get to the bottom of this thanks. You might also want to try to uninstall and reinstall the plugin if the problem persists. 

      Thanks!!

        I reinstalled and it’s the only option that won’t update, just goes blank til I refresh. I’m using the latest WP and XAMPP.

    Continuing the post from Chooseamc from the WordPress plugin site:

    Tried your suggestion and changed the Settings/Reading to ‘Homepage Shows Page’ instead of post. Still getting the error where the home page pulls in all posts in their full length – even though there is no place asking for that on the home page. As a reminder, using WP 3.3.1 and using the Meetup plugin v1.4.3. Theme is RT13 from ThemeForest and uses a post format for the slider – which may be the cause of the conflict if posts are tending to do that. BUT I can’t give up our slider!  http://www.friendsofgoldbutte.org

            I have a static home page on my site.  Posts are placed in under a News Menu.  

  • Lebsica

    I use the WP graphene theme and when the plugin displays the meetups as posts, the theme shows them in a slider on the front page.  The problem I’m having in the slider is that the image in the meetup (hence in the post) is not displaying in the slider.  Additionally, it appears that the meetup is being created twice.  One is a post and the other is an event.  Lastly, all my other posts that are not from meetup.com are not coming up at all.  Can you help at all???  

    • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

      Hey Lebsica,

      On the option page there is an option to allow posts on the home page. Please unselect this option and then the posts should not show up on the landing page. If this doesn’t fix your other problems, please let us know. 

  • Rhcbiz

    Are there any known issues with the Thesis theme? Everything seems to work except for the actual creation of the event posts. Even If I manualy go into the events setting and edit and save a post it just doesnt save.  Any ideas?

      Rhcbiz is was nice talking to you on the phone and looking forward to figuring out the issue.

    Love this plugin – even if just for the sidebar widget integration!

    Is it possible to have the sidebar widget links take you straight to the event on Meetup rather than to a page on your site with more info about the event?

    I love this plugin! Thanks…question…is there a way to categorize the post feed from meetup to have them go into different categories automatically? I am using a magazine style site for my client who has “special events” “zen meditation” and “days of mindfulness” all that he posts on his meetup. Here is the url to see what I am talking about http://www.ensomeditation.com

    Thanks for creating this!

    • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

      Thanks Deborah! Are you talking about breaking up one meetup group into numerous categories or different meetup groups different categories? 

      Thanks!

  • Ann

    I have installed a complete new menu bar…unfortunately this was the only thing that worked.

    Another question. At this moment people can click on the meetup event button (View event on Meetup) and they will automatically be directed to the Meetup event page incl all the address info, etc. Is it possible to direct them to the Meetup login page. This way non members still get to see what we have planned on the new website but can’t get into the private information of the meetup website such as address info.

    I would like to have my events info public but of course rather not my personal information.

    Thanks!

    • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

      Hey Ann,

      What happens if you set your meetup group to private? Do you have an example? 

      Thanks. 

      • Ann

        Thanks! When I have my group as private, my visitors are being redirected to my membership pages. I will also look at my Magic Members settings. It’s just that I like to set up some teasers so that visitors will sign up as well :)

        • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

          Glad, we could help!!! Have a great day :) 

  • Matt

    Hello,
      I installed the plugin but when I try to set the API key and save that configuration, the next page is blank and it does not save. Has anyone seen this before? Help… thanks!
     

    • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

      Nope first time hearing about this. Could you try to uninstall and reinstall and see if the problem persists? Thx! 

      • Anonymous

        I am having the exact same problem as Matt. I think the problem is in the theme. I enter an API key and my group URL and the /index.php?page=wp_meetup page loads nothing. it is blank. I go back and refresh the settings page the key has disappeared and the group URL is again simply meetup.com. I have reinstalled twice, same problem.
        I am running WP 3.3.1 and using the Cover WP Child 1.6.6 theme.

        On another blog of mine, I use the Blocks2 2.0 by mg12 and the install worked fine. The /admin.php?page=wp_meetup page actually loads content and states a successful API key.

        How possible is it to get a fix for the Cover WP Child 1.6.6 theme?

  • Anneke

    Well it’s getting there… phew..
    I am making it way to complicated I guess but…At this moment I have two ways people can register, through Meetup and through the new website. I am looking for a way to integrate both in a way that members who sign up for one also get access to the other. Is this even possible?

  • Meghan Simington

    Love this plug in but it has crashed my site due to inquires to my database? Has anyone else had this same problem? Is there a way to decrease the amount of times it is checking meetup/directory per hour?

    • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

      You could change the variable in the code. We will look into adding an database option in the next version. Thanks for the feedback. You are the first have an issue with this that we have heard about. 

      • Meghan Simington

        We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you. Basically, your website http://coquitlammommy.ca/ redirects to installation page if MySQL database queries exceeds. This is the reason your website is not working. You need to make necessary changes to the website and make sure that your website will not exceed the MySQL query limit. You can wait for one to two hours so that the query limit will reset and your website will work.

        Query limit is the maximum number of database actions performed in one hour by a specific user. Note that a user can have multiple concurrent MySQL connections, in which case the sum of all database actions for all connections cannot exceed the given limit. The maximum number of concurrent MySQL connections per user is 10. The maximum number of database queries per user is 75,000/hr.

        The queries will reset every hour and is kept by user however every time the pages on your site are accessed you are still attempting to make queries to the database server. Because of this even though you are getting errors your script are still accumulating the queries. As a temporary fix for this issue you can delete and recreate your user however this error will still come back if you do not condense the amount of queries your script uses by optimizing your SQL usage. Below is a link that should help, show you how to optimize your MySQL usage:
        http://www.sitepoint.com/article/optimizing-mysql-application

        • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

          Hey Meghan,

          The plugin is not rendering any where close to 75,000 database queries per hour. What other plugins are you using? Have you thought about using a caching plugin to limit the number of database queries?

          Thanks! 

          • http://www.pisgahareasorba.org/ Chris

            Meghan is not the only one having this same issue. I found out the issue was due to your plug in. When disabling your plug in I have no issues. I really found out it was the plug in when I removed the meetup group it hung on the page and then word press install came up. The reason I removed the meetup group was because of duplicate posts, which I see there is a way to remove them from a earlier poster. I think as long as I don’t remove the meetup group the issue does not happen. 

          • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

            Chris thanks for the feedback. We will look into this. 

          • Meghan

            Was there any update on this plugin? Really want to use it but concerned with it crashing the site again?

  • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

    Sorry Anneke,

    The plugin isn’t designed to do that. :( 

  • Valerie Ekstrom Lancaster

    When i try to click the meet ups in the sidebar it says the page isn’t
    found.. any reason? Not sure what to do or change to fix this. I looked through

    • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

      Hey Valerie,

      Go to permalinks under setting. Change the setting to whatever hit save and then re-save it as the post name option. Update the plugin and everything should work. If not try to uninstall the plugin and reinstall it. Please keep us posted if you have any other problems. Have a great day!! 

      • Valerie Ekstrom Lancaster

        Thanks that did it!!!!!!

  • Charles Gerena

    Hi … I really like the plug-in, but I’m having a problem with duplicate posts. Some of the posts (not all of them) are showing up twice when I display all events on a page:

    http://www.jamesriverwriters.dreamhosters.com/resources/calendar

    Is there something about the way the Meetup events are formatting that is causing this problem?

    http://www.meetup.com/James-River-Writers/ 

    Also, how do I delete the duplicates that are already there? I cannot see the Meetup posts when I list all posts on my WP dahsboard, and when I tried to use a bulk delete plug-in to get rid of them all and refresh, it didn’t work.

    Thanks!
    Charles Gerena

    • Charles Gerena

      Hi … I really need a reply to my question as soon as possible. Our new website is launching in a matter of days and this problem is still occurring. Thanks!

      • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

        Sorry for the delay it has been a crazy week. http://yoururl.com/wp-admin/edit.php?post_type=wp_meetup_event should get you to an admin page where you can delete duplicate posts. We are currently looking into this issue and hope to have it resolved in the next release. Thanks for you patience. 

        • Charles Gerena

          Many thanks! Completely understand about having a busy week :)

          Question: Will the dups show up again when the plug-in syncs with Meetup every hour? If so, is there a way to change the update so that it occurs only manually?

          • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

            They should not bring up the event again. Please give us a heads up if it does. We are integrating the manual update feature in the next release.  What theme are you using btw? We would like to look into the admin page not showing up. 

            Thanks!! 

          • Charles Gerena

            We are using a customized theme, so that may be the problem.

  • Pamela Loveland

    Love the plug-in, however, when I just updated it – it removed the menus from the home page (not the others).  I deactivated it and the menu returned. Any thoughts on how to use the plugin and not have that issue?  Thank you!

    • Pamela Loveland

      I actually found another post on WordPress.org saying to uncheck to display on homepage, and the menu is back. But now it keeps telling me the address for the Meetup url is invalid? (It worked before, but I uninstalled and re-installed to try to get the menu back so had to re-enter things. Now it won’t show the calendar.)

      • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

        Hey Pamela,

        Are you still having a problem with this? 

        • Xtine2

          Has this been solved?

          I’m having the same problem Pamela had.

          I installed the newest version 1.4.4 and my home page menu disappeared.

          When I deactivated Meetup, it reappeared..

  • http://www.facebook.com/heathyre Heathyre Perara

    I love the potential of this plug in however I am using a theme that does not allow me to install widgets via the backend, where can if find info on the coding to install the widget into my sidebar via my theme? (I’m not sure if I am asking this the right way….) Another problem is I am using a very old theme which still works but hasn’t been updated in like 5-6 years (Polaroid) so everything is a bit more difficult to make it work right, but I just don’t want to give it up. LOL

    • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

      Hmmmmm, that sounds pretty rough Heathyre. I would suggest you update to a plugin that is more current. You are probably not showing up well on mobile and possibly other browsers. 

  • http://newseattlewahomes.com/ Bill W.

    Awesome plugin.  I’m trying to use WP Meetup in conjunction with Events.  How do I change the url for the archive of events?  For example, right now it’s under “domain/events”…I’d like to change it to something like “domain/meetup-events”.  Thanks!

    • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

      Bill,

      Great Point!!! We initially had the category option but must have been lost in the updates. I will add this to our development list of things to do. 

      Have a great day!! 

      • Tommy White

        What became of this as I need to change mine as well to something other than events.

  • Tim J

    I have some events that I need to display on my blog that are not from my meetup group.  I would prefer to have just one calendar in my system, though I really like the event entries and the automatic nature of them when events are added to our meetup group.  Can I get at the Events themselves to display in another calendar plugin?

  • Bill W.

    Are there shortcodes other than  [wp-meetup-calendar]?I’m trying to display upcoming events for a specific group.

    • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

      Sorry not currently. What type of short code are you looking for? 

  • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

    Sorry the plugin doesn’t currently support that functionality. 

  • Albertojm

  • http://www.meetup.com/CalgaryDoSomethingNew/ CalgaryDoSomethingNew

    I am seeing only the furthest-away event listed first (on the ‘blog’ – the ‘upcoming calendar’ widget is fine). 

    I’d like to see upcoming events as I see them on MU – ‘next one first’ going forwards, and past events ‘last one first’ going backwards.

    Is there a flag I can change, or must I edit a config file?  Or does it even allow this?

  • Charles Gerena

    Hi plugin folks! I was wondering if you planned to release an update soon.
    A serious limitation in the calendar widget could be addressed in such an
    update — only one event is displayed when you click on any of the hyperlinked
    dates, even if there are multiple events on that day.

    Thanks for all your hard work in developing this useful plugin!

  • http://twitter.com/MegaSpork Mega Spork

    Just installed your plugin on Quynn.com — We’re from Tucson too!  How awesome!

    • Pamela_CCN

      I’m experiencing the same issue. Was there a fix?

      • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

        If you go to the permalink section in you setting panel and set it to post name. It should resolve the issue. You may have to uninstall and reinstall the plugin. Please give us a heads up if this doesn’t work. 

        • Pamela_CCN

          Thanks, it did

        • Ron

          that sounds like the answer for a page using the plugin. what about using it as a widget in the sidebar

          • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

            It should fix where the links are pointing too as well. New version coming out tomorrow btw. 

    • http://www.legalsupportondemand.com/ Bernadette Smith

       I manually created the directory http://www.url.com/events using FTP and the widget worked! Hope this helps.

    • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

      Everything should be fixed. Please send us a email if it isn’t.

      Thanks!

  • Stewartntownsend

    Hi

    Great plugin, I have linked the API and pulling the meetup group data into my instance, it can create the calendar and populates the page with the details but when I click on a entry in the calendar it goes to say

    http://bigdataweek.com/events/mahout-special-session-with-ted-dunning-sean-owen/

    which is empty, I can see the post inside Admin but it cant seem to publish it live.

    The Theme is
    Eventure 1.0.1 by Chris Molitor

    Running WP 3.3.2

    • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

      Try reseting your permalinks to post name. This should fix the problem. If not try uninstalling and reinstalling the plugin

  • Johnantonacci23

    plugin eliminated my main menu (alyeska theme)

    • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

      Thanks, 

  • Lee Hempfling

    date issue: using the widget it is starting at the event of yesterday’s date , not a future event… the meetup account has events every day and instead of listing the next upcoming events it lists yesterday’s event and then starts the rest…. where in the code is this calculation.. i’ll change it.. thanks

    • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

      Thanks for the update! 

  • CardiffInternet

    After an afternoon of not being able to get a ‘Buy Ticket’ button working for a Meetup RSVP, I’ve sadly uninstalled your plugin (which looked promising). Unfortunately, it seems that none of my previous posts with a category of “Events” (slug: events) are working at all.

    If I renamed the ‘events’ slug to ‘events3′, they all work again but obviously I don’t want to do this as it kind of misses the point of having permalinks at all!

    The fix for this is to go to Settings > Permalinks and select the “Default: ttp://cardiffinternet.com/?p=123″ option. Hit save. Then revert to your preferred link structure and hit save.

    Am recording this here, as it worked for me. Shame that I can’t get the plugin to do what I want — I want a big red button that says “Buy Tickets Here” which links straight to the checkout process on Meetup.com. It seems that everything I try is just linking to the meetup event page, meaning that my attendees have to perform another click RSVP to get tickets — doesn’t sound like much but more than one of my group has indicated that they don’t know how to buy tickets…

    Any help greatly appreciated.

  • Steven Lischer

    When I enter the api key and url, clicking updating options returns a blank page and doesn’t update anything. Deactivating/reactivating has no effect. Unchecking publishing options has no effect. I tried reinstalling as well. No other plugins are active. The plugin doesn’t seem to add any tables or values to the database. WP 3.4.1 WP-Meetup 1.4.4 I’ve started scouring the code, but haven’t found anything yet.

    • Steven Lischer

      I’m still having this issue. Is there any additional information I can give you to help diagnose the issue?

    • Steven Lischer

      just ran sudo apt-get install php5-curl to fix it.

  • Darth Imperius

    The widget event links to a non-existent url on my site instead of my meetup event url. I unchecked the use on home page box. I selected a different permalink option, saved, then checked “day and name” and saved. I uninstalled and reinstalled the plugin. The link is still broken. Is there any way to use this widget? Thank you.

    • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

      Please change your permalinks structure to post

  • Heather

    Great plugin.  I’m using it to aggregate different meetups on a particular subject, but I want to be able to display different calendars for different cities.  So you might have one calendar NYC with 5 meetups and then another one for London with 5 other groups.  Is there anyway to split the meetups into different groups in order to enable them to show up on different calendars?
    THanks!

  • Heather

    Great plugin!  Is there anyway to add attributes to the shortcode?  I’d like to have several different calendars and show different Meetup groups on each.  Is there any sort of id or name attribute that could be added?  So the shortcode might be [wp-meetup-calendar name=”blue, green, red”] and then on a different page you might have [wp-meetup-calendar name=”black, yellow, purple”]? 

    Many thanks!

  • Lincs

    This looks great, I’m really excited to find this plugin. Thanks for building it! 
    Sorry for this question, but I’m just not clear on how to pull events from multiple Meetup groups? There seems to be only room for one URL… unless you can add commas? 

    • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

      Hey Lincs,

      You just have to add one group at a time. 

  • Lincs

    Installed… looking forward to using this… but a little glitch… 
    I have a 404 at the http://myurl.com/events page. This is probably because I had a page with the slug “events,” but tried changing that slug and reinstalling the plugin and it still does not give me the events page. How can I change the URL for the archive page or otherwise make it work? Thanks in advance!

    Hi there, I want to install this app, but there is a warning saying that it is not tested with my version of wordpress (3.4.1 I think,)  Is it ready for the latest version??

  • JobGroupOperations

    I’m running into an issue with the calendar feature.  Our Meetup page had a couple of recurring monthly events created that have now been discontinued.  I can’t get these events to disappear from the calendar.  I’ve deleted the events on the Meetup page and trashed the individual events from our web site.  The cancelled events no longer appear in the upcoming events view, but still appear on the calendar.  They are no longer highlighted as Meetup events, but they confuse some of our people, because they still appear on the calendar.  Any ideas on how to remove these?

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1523117752 Gary Cameron

    This is a great plugin, and has been a big help with the non-profit organization I’m helping to get off the ground.  (www.jobgroup.org).  However, I’m having an issue with the Calendar view.  If an event is cancelled on the Meetup site, I can’t find a way to completely remove it from the Calendar view on our web site, and it is confusing people.  If I trash the event on my website, it no longer shows highlighted in Red as being part of the meetup group, but the text still appears on the calendar.

    In terms of CUSTOM POSTS is it possible to allocate categories or somehow segment them at all ?

    Hi, This is a great plugin with some nuances. Can you help with the following?
    1. This looks like a data issue: post_id is null on a majority of our events and so clicking the event from the calendar is simply reloading the page.

    2. The Calendar short code on a page with slug /calendar/ does not work if its under the Events (slug: /events) page. Are these special paths?

    3. Every access to loading the events on the home page is generating this error log:
    WordPress database error Multiple primary key defined for query ALTER TABLE wp_wpmeetup_groups ADD PRIMARY KEY  (`id`(16)) made by require(‘wp-blog-header.php’), require_once(‘wp-load.php’), require_once(‘wp-config.php’), require_once(‘wp-settings.php’), do_action(‘init’), call_user_func_array, wp_widgets_init, do_action(‘widgets_init’), call_user_func_array, __lambda_func, register_widget, WP_Widget_Factory->register, WP_Meetup_Events_Widget->__construct, WP_Meetup_Events_Controller->__construct, WP_Meetup_Controller->__construct, WP_Meetup->import_model, WP_Meetup_Groups->__construct, WP_Meetup_Groups->create_table, dbDelta

    Thanks

      We are looking into this. Thanks for you patiences 

  • Swaminathan SP

    So I downloaded this plugin, played with settings and added the text wp-meetup-calendar] in the html editor. Website already events page where I had to display other workshops, now after this the page had big size fonts and totally out of style. I’m zero with php but good at html, trying to understand how this plugin works, appreciate any help offered. Thanks!!

      Can you submit an example?

  • Jami Leslie

    When the meetup.com posts an entry in the blog, the subscribers are not emailed. Is there a way to fix this?

    • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

      Sorry we don’t currently support this functionality.

    Hi, 

    I noticed that when showing the event post on my homepage ( WordPress 3.5.1, Theme P2 1.4.2 ) the navigation menu was disabled because this function:

    function modify_pre_posts( $query ) { $this->import_model(‘options’); if ($this->options->get(‘include_home_page’)) {    if( is_front_page() || is_home()) $query->set(‘post_type’, array(‘wp_meetup_event’, ‘post’)); } return $query;    }

    Is not testing if the query it’s altering is the main query.

    I just fixed it as follows:

    function modify_pre_posts( $query ) { $this->import_model(‘options’); if ($this->options->get(‘include_home_page’)) {    if( $query->is_main_query() && ( is_front_page() || is_home())) $query->set(‘post_type’, array(‘wp_meetup_event’, ‘post’)); } return $query;    }

    • http://twitter.com/placenamehere Chris Casciano

      I also ran into this issue. With a static front page selected (twenty ten) calls busted for 

      – custom nav requests in the header or widgets (get_posts() call triggered by wp_nav_menu()
      – gallery content [via shortcode in the selected static page’s content]

  • Jorge Vargas

    Please advise, I keep getting this:

    WordPress database error: [Multiple primary key defined]

    ALTER TABLE wp_wpmeetup_groups ADD PRIMARY KEY (`id`(16))

      We will check it out. Thx

  • http://www.facebook.com/InsureYouToo Michael Battaglia

    I can get the calander to come up, but when i click on a link to see the event I end up back at my home page.  When you hover over the link, it looks right (i.e., it goest to ../event/…).  When I ftp to the event directory it’s empty.  When I go to the setting area and look at the events, the list is there and when I click on one I can ‘edit’ the post.  I have also check and my permalinks are set to postname.

    I am working in a subdirectory so that might have something to do with it.

    http://www.DallasReferrals.net

    Any ideas? 

    • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

      I would check your permalink structure. Is is set to http://yourdomain.com/sample-post/?

      • http://www.facebook.com/InsureYouToo Michael Battaglia

        Yes it is.

    • http://www.facebook.com/NekkidTees Tommy White

      You may want to make sure you don’t have a post category created that says event or events on it.

  • StartupSB

    great plugin!
    Three quick questions…
    1- How can I publish more than 2 months of events. 6 months or a year would be great!

    2- Change the title of the page showing the event feed (www.startupsb.com/events) to be something other than “Archive”

    3- Organize the events feed items to show the next event first in the list

    Thanks for the help!

    Does anybody know how I can
    1) import events to meetup.com using this or some other plugin?
    2) sync meetup events and facebook events?

    I basically want to have my events at 2 places…meetup.com and as facebook events and I want them both to be synced up

  • http://www.facebook.com/tubbwell Christine Nielsen

    I just installed the plugin according to the instructions above and everything works fine for the widgets. However, when i try to enter the shortcode [wp-meetup-calendar] onto a page to show a full page calendar, it just doesn’t work. The page just displays blank. Is it not calling the function properly or am I missing something? Thanks!

  • http://twitter.com/tucutech Zoe Tsoraklidis

    hi! Great plugin. Thank you! Having a problem though…recurring events are posted as the wrong time. If you see my site, all this months event times are correct and next month’s events are all one hour later. How can I fix this?

        Have you tried to adjust your WordPress time setting under settings >> General?

        Please give us a heads up if this doesn’t work. It might take 24 hours or so to propagate.

      Hi there,

      I still haven’t received a reply on this. I have upgraded the plugin, deactivated and reactiveed it, and still, all events are showing up 2 hours later on the plug in page than on the meetup page. We really need a solution. Can you help us out today?

      • http://twitter.com/tucutech Zoe Tsoraklidis

        RESOLVED. BUT PLEASE NOTE- YOU HAVE A TYPO IN YOUR SHORTCODE on this page: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-meetup/installation/ which causes the plugin to fail.

        • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

          Wow!!! Thanks for the correction. We really appreciate it. We will change it on the next deployment. Thanks again. Hope you have a great day.

    After adding the api and meetup url and clicking submit the pluggin continually times out. Any suggestions?

      Hey Rhonda,

      I would try again later. Sometimes their API gets hung up.

      Thanks!

    If there is more than one event scheduled on a day, I only see the first event when I mouseover the date, or when I click on the date. Any ideas?

        Thanks John

        • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

          Hmmm, John we currently don’t support multiple in the tootip alert. We will put this feature on our road map thanks.

      • http://www.facebook.com/Waiter21 John McAvoy

        I just noticed that there is nothing for my Apr 23rd date. I will remove, and reload the Meetup plugin and get a new API code.

        I’ll report back.

        OK – I reloaded everything, The only thing that doesn’t work is the “mouseover”. I only see one event (Apr13 and Apr 23) have two events.

        The two events show up OK everywhere else.

        I’m using Firefox (19.0.2) browser on Win7

  • http://www.facebook.com/bethsantos Beth Santos

    Great stuff! Any way this plugin could work with multiple meetup groups under the same account? Our website runs a meetup in Boston and one in Chicago. It’d be great to be able to show both meetups (even if they have to be separately) somewhere, as they are under the same organizer and just have different pages. Thoughts?

    • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

      Hey Beth,

      The plugin supports multiple meetup groups. Just add another group and you are done. You can even custom select colors for the groups.

      • http://www.facebook.com/bethsantos Beth Santos

        Wow, that was so easy it was complicated! I guess you need to add one first to know that adding another is an option. At first glance, it looks like there’s just one there. Thank you for the help!

  • http://www.facebook.com/MattSAdams Matt Adams

    I am using the plugin, I like what it does but there are a few bugs.

    1. For one, it does not show up properly in a sidebar widget. It’s all stretched out and unviewable because it overlaps the side of the widget.

    2. I cannot, for the life of me, get the calendar function to work right in a page. It displays in the widget box, albeit messed up, but it shows up there. If I put the shortcode on a page, it just brings up a feed of listings that turn into blog posts instead of an actual calendar.

    Here’s the link so you can see what I mean. http://www.socialserendip.com/events/

    Would love some help on this please. Trying to make my site look as professional as I can. Thank you in advance. :)

    ~Matt

    • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

      Hey Matt,

      We have an update to the plugin coming out later this week, maybe even today. I would try disabling the other plugins that you have active on your site to make sure they are not causing conflicts with the WP-Meetup plugin. If your problems persist please post another comment after you update has come out.

      • Matt Adams

        Hey.

        I got the update and I figured out that I had some other Meetup plugin installed that wasn’t doing anything except for messing yours up. Deleted! Great tip. ;) Everything is working PERFECTLY now. THANKS A MILLION!

        Btw, a coder friend of mine said that you’ve structured your plugin really well. He thinks you did a great job on this, and now that I’ve got working perfectly for me too, so do I.

        Thanks again!

        ~Matt

    I keep getting a “The Group URL you entered isn’t valid.” message, but the URL is correct. Here is the URL I’m trying to use: http://www.meetup.com/Marin-Social-Mountain-Bikers/

    • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

      I would wait a few hours and try again, sometimes Meetup hiccups.

    I’m trying to connect the plugin with Meetup. Getting errors, (Your API key is invalid & The Group URL you entered isn’t valid). I’ve seen that quite a few others have had the same issues. What’s the fix? Thanks!

    • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

      Hey ChocSprinkles,

      I would wait a few hours and try again, sometimes Meetup hiccups. If it doesn’t work after a few attempts please post back.

      Thanks

      • ChocSprinkles

        Two hours later and it’s still not working.

        • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

          Hey ChocSprinkles,

          Please confirm that your API key is correct and there isn’t a space before it. All we do is send the url and the API key to meetup for validation, so if your API Key and URL are correct you might just have to keep trying until it works. Sorry I can’t give you a better answer but this issue isn’t on our end. :( Sometime it can take up to 24 hours for it to work.

            Hello Amy,

            Sorry to hear about the trouble! I’m afraid we don’t
            support this plug-in so I’m afraid there is little that we can do to investigate this issue.

            Can you have the developer contact us about this issue? It
            may be related to an overload of requests to our API, but this will need to be resolved with them directly.

            They can send a message to Meetup Support here:

  • http://www.nicheoptimizer.com/justin-lewis/ Justin Lewis

    I’m loving this plugin so far. I would love to know if there was a way to integrate a “map” along with a list of “rsvp’s” on the actual event pages. If so that would be AMAZING.

  • http://www.facebook.com/NekkidTees Tommy White

    Is there a way to remove past meetups from the list. If I do a search I am finding events that are 6 to 7 months past showing up.

    • http://www.facebook.com/NekkidTees Tommy White

      By search I mean the default wordpress search is causing outdated events to appear. I would rather like to have the older posts removed, as I am using the /events instead of calendar but if I had to I would settle for a way to exclude results from the default wordpress search as a last resort.

  • Mark Brodhuber

    I’m having some issues with the non-breaking spacers in the calendar being displayed as text. Everything seems to be working properly but when I view my calendar page, any day that has no events is being filled with bolded &nbsp’s. After inspecting the calendar on your demo, I see that all of the calenders contain these spacers, but I cannot figure out what in my site’s causing them to display as text rather than just act as normal spacers.. Any ideas? Here’s a screenshot: http://d.pr/i/Uwe1

After inspecting the calendar on your demo, I see that all of the calenders contain these spacers, but I cannot figure out what in my site’s causing them to display as text rather than just act as normal spacers.. Any ideas? I have deleted the plugin and re-insalled . Here is a link to the page http://www.certusnetwork.com/our-events/

    • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

      Have you tried disabling the other active plugins on the site? There may be a conflict. I would disable the other plugins. Uninstall and reinstall and see if the issue still exists. If it has been fixed, then activate the plugins one at a time until you figure out which problem is causing the problem.

      • Mark Brodhuber

        Hello Nuanced, I wrote a few days ago regarding this problem. I tried following the instructions you wrote to Laura and it didn’t seem to work. The only other plugin that’s installed right now is Akismet and even after disabling it and reinstalling your plugin it’s still showing the non-breaking spacer issue. And to make matters worse, after removing and reinstalling the plugin my existing events are not displaying with the normal styling. Before I removed it, the event in the calendar view showed up as a pink box in the date, with the event’s name in the box and clicking that brought me to the event’s info page. Now it’s just showing as text without the pink styling, and is not clickable as a link. Any ideas?

    • Mark Brodhuber

      Hey Laura,

      Just followed your link and it seems like you got things in order with the spacers issue. Mind reporting back to explain how you fixed it? I’ve tried the instructions that Nuanced Media listed in their reply to you and it didn’t change anything. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

  • http://www.facebook.com/donna.galassi Donna Galassi

    Hi! is there a way to separate different Meetup groups into different calendars? So that I can specify a specific calendar for a separate web page on the website? So far, it looks like I can combine multiple groups into a single calendar, but not a different calendar for each group. Thanks for any help!

    • http://nuancedmedia.com Nuanced Media

      No currently, but we will put it on the roadmap.

    I just wanted to ask for a localization in Italian, and give my availabilty to help :)

    I already made the edits I needed in the calendar (in Italy weeks start from Monday, not Sunday) and translated some words, but it would be great to have these things in the official plugin.

    Good work!

    How do you remove the logo from the sidebar widget? I don’t mind leaving it in the footer but not a fan of the NM logo being on the home page in the widget bar? Willing to make a donation or whatever to support but again just don’t want it on my home page in the side bar. Thanks in advance for help/suggestions.

    WordPress Plugin Debugging (Issue Found)

    Okies I have debugged.

    1. Install wordpress event plugin

    http://forumsaust.info

    2. I changed my database table to MYISAM for events and groups, this would make no difference to the process but aligns with rest of database tables.

    3. I Changed Colour whilst there to syc with website.

    4. Reset my API Key

    5. Added API Key and a Group I am attached too.

    6. I edited the css to remove group names from calendar view as this does not look good.

    7. I went to Groups in Plugin, can see first group added in setup, calendar working fine.

    8. I Add new group

    9. Error 103

    10. Refreshed

    11. Group Added

    12. I Checked Calender, works fine added events

    13. I repeated steps 8 to 12, works fine to maximum of 5 groups in Groups Plugin

    14. I add 6 Group,

    15. Error 103

    16. Refreshed

    17. Group Added

    18. Calendar dies, no events

    19. I remove Group

    20. Everything works again

    21. I add a 6 group, dies

    22. I leave that group and remove one already working and added prior

    23. Calendar Works.

    Result; Group Limit set to 5 for some reason.

    Now I have spent allot of time, re-installing this plugin and even cleaning out database which by the way is time consuming.

    I have had to repair links to app and main website attached dues to this.

    I now wonder why there is a limit, Why this has not been declared and why no one else knows.

    Now time is money and My business is at a time framed moment, time wasted on this I am not happy about when it is obvious there is a group limit in the css programming.

    Plugin are designed to maximize potential, you limit you limit business interest.

    I would like a fix and some answers to the above.

    When Database added events from 12 plus groups this may have been via forced event pull button, rather than auto update, such not being picked up by events in plugin.

    Either-way the calendar and widget deactivate when adding more than 5 groups.

    I’ll look through CSS and get back to you if I can Alter this count in a workable fashion.

    • POCParty Australia

      I increasing the limit below but not a great deal of success when adding a dozen groups.

  • blackjaic

    Hi, we’ve been using your plugin for almost a year now and it works great. We have run into a problem of have over 3/4 million posts from the Meetups. What’s the recommended way of culling old event posts? Is it possible to tell the plugin not to pull recurring Meetups more than 3 months in the future? It appears to pull recurring events up to 1 year away.

  • Dana Nourie

    The plugin is not updating with new events that were added to our calendar on the Meetup site. I went to Events from the nav in wp admin, and I clicked Update Event Posts, but it’s not grabbing the latest. I don’t know what could be preventing this.

  • Art Adams

    I found a bug in the plugin that blanked out my calendar whenever I updated my site. It would eventually repopulate but the process took a while. I notified Nuanced and ended up working with Austin to resolve the issue. It turned out it was a rare and obscure issue that only affected a few customers but he chased it down and fixed it quite quickly. I’m extremely pleased with both the plugin and the exceptional quality of support that I received. I never expected this kind of attention for a free plugin!

    • http://nuancedmedia.com/ Nuanced Media

      Hey Art, thank you for your kind words! We appreciate having users who are willing to work with us to help resolve issues! Without awesome users like you, then we might not have been able to resolve that issue at all. Thank you again for the time you spent working with us.

      Also, we would appreciate it if you could give the plugin a rating on the WordPress Reviews Page. Lastly, if you have any feature suggestions or recommendations then please feel free to let us know.

  • Henry Gondorff

    This plugin is fabulous. It’s like Meetupgator which was a similar web app but seems to have died. This is better. It allows me to monitor 38 groups on one calendar. Thank you so much for developing this. If the calendar has been blanking lately, remember that Meetup.com was hit with a huge DDOS over the last week.If I could make a suggestion for an update: The list of groups located at the top of the calendar, these could be made clickable to go to each group’s home page. Thanks again!

    • http://nuancedmedia.com/ Nuanced Media

      Thank you for the kind words Henry! We really appreciate it. As always, feel free to rate us on the WordPress reviews page for the plugin which can be found here.

      In response to your suggestion, we are currently playing around with a plethora of subtle features similar to your suggestion. Hopefully we will begin working on these soon and can give you a better, more customizable plugin! Thank you for your suggestion! As always, we love hearing from our users.

    Hi I just set this up, and have a small issue – when the events show up, they show up with the address of the event. On Meetup, they show up as “Location is shown only to members” – is there anyway to fix this, or a setting that would always disable the address?

    Hello, this plugin is still very helpful. On the update, I had to reset all of my group background colors. Before you could just paste the hex color number. That is gone now you have to go to color picker for every group. Very tedious. It is also necessary to log out then log in again to have these changes take effect. That should not happen although was also the case before. Also, there is no auto-update now. Need auto update and a way to control it with options for hourly, daily, weekly, etc. The update button used to say how many events were added on update. This is gone now, hard to tell what was updated.

    • http://nuancedmedia.com/ Nuanced Media

      Hi Henry,
      The plugin should have handled pulling your background colors from your previous version. We will look into this. Can you tell us what version you were updating from? As for the use of a colorpicker, WP Meetup has always used some form of a colorpicker. As of version 2.2.0, it uses the default colorpicker for whichever browser you are currently using. For example, when I use Chrome, there is a pop-up colorpicker. However if I use firefox, then I am given a simple hex code input box. These options should update immediately and we will look into why you have to logout for them to take effect.

      The plugin should still update automatically, however the update message is something that we temporarily removed.

      If you would like to email us at plugins@nuancedmedia.com with more information, such as the version that you updated from and your current version, then we would appreciate it so that we can look into these issues.

      Thank you.

      • Henry Gondorff

        I was using the most recent version before yesterday’s update which put the green headers on dashboard items – did not affect background colors. Today there was another small update about forgotten crucial file. I did that update and it reverted bg colors to default dark grey. I changed bg colors back, saved and refreshed calendar page but did not update. Logged off and back on, pressed save (revised colors were retained), refreshed calendar and new colors appeared. The hex box shows only on IE. Chrome and Firefox (I mostly use Firefox) have colorpicker. Firefox did have hexbox until yesterday’s update. I don’t think plugin ever auto-updated for me – before or now. There used to be a box indicating update intervals but I could not adjust it. When I use update button then refresh calendar page, then I can see changes occur. Before, update message would confirm events were added.

    Hi this may be a newb question so my apologies if it is. After adding the calendar to my homepage the event pages automatically link to http://www.raveloop.com/events/aly-fila-sutra-2/ which is currently nonexistent. Would I need to manually create every single event on my website or is there an “auto create page events” feature in wordpress?

    Here’s my site just in case you need it: http://www.raveloop.com

    Thanks,

    Terry

    • http://nuancedmedia.com/ Nuanced Media

      Hey Terry,

      This should be solved by simply resetting your permalinks. If you go into under the WordPress settings, you will find a section called Permalinks. From there you can simply re-save your current settings and this should fix the issue. If it does not then please feel free to email us at plugins@nuancedmedia.com and we will look into the issue.

      Thanks for using our plugin! If you have anymore questions, then feel free to contact us here, email us directly at the above address, or write on the WordPress support page for the plugin.

      • http://bit.ly/1kGNy2Y Terry Pham

        First thanks so much for your reply! I made the change and it worked! A couple of other questions if you don’t mind. I read Henry Gondorff’s issue with the colors and was wondering where/how the calendar plugin is pulling the color from so I can change it? Thanks again!

        • http://nuancedmedia.com/ Nuanced Media

          Hey Terry,
          Within the Plugins settings pages, there is a page titled groups. That page has a color selector on it where you can choose the color that will represent each group.

          • http://bit.ly/1kGNy2Y Terry Pham

            Hi thanks for the help–everything looks great now! Also, I left you a 5 star review. Keep up the great work and hope to see the evolution of this plugin continue.

  • Harry Bosh

    Everything is working on my site, but how do I get the events to show up in a category? Do I have to embed the calendar. I was under the impression the plugin created posts from meetup events. I can see these in the backend, but how about showing them in the front end? How?

    • http://nuancedmedia.com/ Nuanced Media

      Hey Harry,

      You are correct about the plugin creating a post for each of the events. Currently they are being saved as a custom post type that is hidden from user interaction (or at least it should be). We are working in making it safe for users to edit posts without changes being overwritten by the plugin the next time that it updates. That means that currently you can’t simply enter the backend of the plugin and add categories to posts. However look for this in a future update down the road.

  • http://bit.ly/1kGNy2Y Terry Pham

    Hi good folks at Nuanced Media! Everything’s fine and dandy except I’m having issues updating events via the wp meetup dashboard. To clarify, I added a few new events on my meetup group, hit “update events now” on my wp dashboardand this message shows up “There was an error querying your events. Please try again at a later time.” I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong. Please let me know if you can help me out. Thanks!

    • http://nuancedmedia.com/ Nuanced Media

      Hey Terry,
      I apologize for not responding sooner but I have been looking into your issue and I haven’t yet figured out a solution to offer you. There are two ways that you will receive that message. The first is that the body of the REST request to Meetup.com was returned as NULL. The second is if the body was returned in proper form but there were no events for your specific group. If you want us too look into it further then we will have to get more information from you. Feel free to email us at plugins@nuancedmedia.com and we will try to help you out as best we can. Thanks.

    • http://nuancedmedia.com/ Nuanced Media

      Hi Terry,
      Here is the issue that I have come across. I personally coded that error message myself. It is coded to show up when I am coding on my localhost without internet access. It is plausible that you were is that situation when the error occurred. However, when the cron ran the next day, these events should have been pulled and your problem should have been solved.

      There are other ways that this error could have occurred, however we have checks set in place that would stop you from even getting to that point. For example, the check the validity of group urlnames as you add them. We also check the structure of the API REST requests as we build them. So unless you were doing as I previously mentioned, working on your site without internet, then it should have been impossible for you to get the message that you did.

      I have looked through our code start to finish, trying to think of what could have happened and I found no other options. If you are still getting this error and you can’t pull any events, then I would love to look at your site. Send up an email at plugins@nuancedmedia.com and I will do everything in my power to figure out what is going on.

  • Harry Bosh

    Hi Everyone, i cannot seem to configure this plugin to show a calendar as displayed above. No matter what i choose it is always a list, i just upgraded to the latest!

    • http://nuancedmedia.com/ Nuanced Media

      Hey Harry,

      Off of the top of my head, without looking at your site, I would guess that you are trying to make a calendar on a page titled “Events”, which is currently being used as the default post type archive page (the list that keeps showing up). If this is the case then you can simply edit the custom post type root from the plugin options page and this will fix your issue.

      If this is not the case, then feel free to email us at plugins@nuancedmedia.com and we will look at your site and help you out in any way that we can.

      • http://interludic.com.au Harry Bosh

        Yes i was using events!
        I noticed the new version has the ability to modify the root.

        Also i want to do some work on the plugin, especially merging the custom posts and the calendar. When time permits! do you have git?

        • http://nuancedmedia.com/ Nuanced Media

          Hi Harry,

          We do not have a public git. However, all WordPress plugins stored in the WordPress SVN are open source and you can change it on your personal website. However, I don’t recommend this because we would overwrite your changes every time we pushed an update. If you would like for us to code something out for you and push it in the next update then we can do that, as long as it isn’t something that will remove a feature requested by someone else already.

          Feel free to shot us an email at plugins@nuancedmedia.com and we will look into it and get back to you as soon as possible.

    • http://bit.ly/1kGNy2Y Terry Pham

      Harry I’m just letting you know Nuanced Media must like you better than me since you received a reply.

      • http://interludic.com.au Harry Bosh

        maybe try donating?

  • David Singer

    I just installed the plugin; [meetup-list] doesn’t display an event happening later tonight. Could there be a timezone problem between Meetup and WP? Thanks!

    • http://nuancedmedia.com/ Nuanced Media

      Hey David,
      There very well could be a timezone issue. We try to account for that but we are realizing that we might be causing some issues because of that. If you look at the Events tab on the WP Meetup admin page, then you can compare the dates the WP Meetup is storing the event at with the date the Meetup.com has. If these don’t match then feel free to email us at plugins@nuancedmedia.com and we will happily look into things further.

      • http://readthisblog.net David Singer

        The times matched; I’ll see what happens when I’m within a few hours of the next event on my meetup and will email you if there’s still a problem. Thanks!

  • Avigail F

    when I upgraded wordpress to 3.9.1, this plugin created an error. I had to keep it deactivated. There is no sign that there is a newer version. what to do? jnbf.org

  • Avigail F

    Since I upgraded wordpress to 3.9.1, the plugin creates an error message:
    Development Error: The pt variable needs to be overwritten in each specific PT file.
    What do you advise?

    • http://nuancedmedia.com/ Nuanced Media

      Hi Avigail, I just release an update today. If you upgrade the plugin and still ave issues then please contact us at plugins@nuancedmedia.com and we will happily look into your issue further.

  • Mom Adored

    I just added this and am excited to use it. However, I cannot figure out what format I am to use to add my group. The sample text show group_url_1, group_url_2, group_url_3. This gives an error “Please enter a correct group urlname.” Please advise. Thanks!

    • http://nuancedmedia.com/ Nuanced Media

      Hey Mom Adored,

      When you view the url for a Meetup.com group, you will see something along the lines of http://www.meetup.com/group_urlname/ and if you try to enter the full url then the plugin will give you that message. What you need to add is the group_urlname. This should add your groups correctly. If you have any further issues then don’t hesitate to ask us here, or email us directly at plugins@nuancedmedia.com and we will happily help you.

      • Valter Colognori

        Hi, I followed the instructions listed in the response .I inserted group_urlname without http: // www ………. but it does not work.
        appears: Groups Have Been added.
        but in the following line appears: Please enter a correct group urlname.

        I also tried to insert the url in part, without spaces or insert but nothing did not work. The current version is 2.2.9 wpmeetup

    Great plugin. Unfortunately, it’s only allowing me to use one group. When I try to add another it kicks me out to the home page. Also, the widget calendar doesn’t display the information on the calendar. It does work with the short code, but I though I would let you know.

      Hi Pat Moran,

    I noticed that it duplicated many of our meetup groups after I updated plug-in. After deleting duplicates, tried to add a new one, but kept kicking me out of the dashboard. Doesn’t seem to be my wordpress settings, as I’m able to update other things within the dashboard.

  • Julie

    My links for (read more) under each event are wrong. What can I do to correct this? I am new to wordpress. I went out today and bought a book on it.
    http://pittsburghinvestigatorsoftheparanormal.com/pip/

    Thanks

    • http://nuancedmedia.com/ Nuanced Media

      Hey Julie,

      I took a look at your site and this issue that you are having is du to the fact that you don’t have WordPress stored in your root. Since you have it installed at http://pittsburghinvestigatorsoftheparanormal.com/pip/, whenever WordPress needs to link to a page it will build the page URL from the root (http://pittsburghinvestigatorsoftheparanormal.com/) and leave off the “pip/” that is required for links to work correctly.

      In order to fix this, you have a couple options. The first would be to move WordPress to the root and rebuild your whole site using WordPress. This is a lot of work but will probably be worth it in the long run if you want to fully utilize plugins. The second and much more simple solution would be to change your WordPress Address and your site address from within the WordPress settings page. Doing this will cause WordPress to recognize that it isn’t in the root and take that into consideration when building links.

      I hope this was helpful. If you have any more questions then fee free to contact us.

  • Jess

    Where can I edit the scripts to make the links open in a new window/tab? I don’t want my site visitors to be taken completely away from my page just because they want to rsvp.

  • Pavo

    Hi There,

    I’ve been trying out the plugin and making the updates as they come, but I’m noticing that the plugin is not working well on my client’s site http://www.realitycrowdtv.com. The group URL entry is not working and gives an error message along with the “Groups have been added.” message. Please see attached screen shot.

    Also, is there a way to show the events as posts in the admin panel for edits and sorting by event date instead of post number? Whenever the events showed up on the web site’s Events page, they would be out of order.

    • http://nuancedmedia.com/ Nuanced Media

      Hey Pavo,
      This issue should have been fixed with the update that was released yesterday. Try updating the plugin, or deleting and adding the plugin again. If issues still persist, send us an email at plugins@nuancedmedia.com and we will have someone look into the issue.

      • Pavo

        • Chattanooga Hash House Harrier

          I had the same issue. I then added only the group name (what came after the http://www.meetup.com/), so only {my group name}, and it added the new group.

  • Brian Alexander

    Hi…I just installed WP Meetup to my site. I can see all of our group’ events on the Event tab in the settings, but when I tried the [meetup-list] shortcode on one of my pages, it only shows the first 200 or so. We have had over 600 events since the group started in 2011. Under general options, the only box checked is “Checking this box will make all links within the calendar and widgets direct users to the Meetup.com event page.” Under query options, # of past months = 60 and # of future months = 2. I tried doing a force update, but after a minute I get a 504 error. Is there a way to fix this?

    • Brian Alexander

      Also the Meetup list is not displaying in table format like you have in the screen shot at the top of this page. Not sure whether it’s related. Thanks.

      • http://nuancedmedia.com/ Nuanced Media

        Hey Brian,

        You are receiving the 504 error because you are requesting too many events. Meetup.com limits the amount of time that a query can take. This is also why you are only getting 200 of your 600 events. We set our default values to a smaller window for this very reason. One thing you can do is limit the the query to smaller chunks and pull events manually. If you set the query values you past: 60 and future: -55. It will query the 5 month set and then you can shift to past: 55 and future: -50 to get the next set. Doing this manually will keep you under the 504 error limit.

        As for the Meetup list not displaying in the format above, that image is from the backend settings pages of an older version. We have made many updates since and will be updating these pictures shortly.

        • Brian Alexander

          Ah, thanks for the tip! I still get the 504 error, but everything appears to be loading now.

          I kinda prefer the format in the screen shot, but that’s just me.

          Thanks again!

  • Brian Alexander

    Follow-up to my question about using [meetup-list]: One of the events in the list has italics in the description. From that point on, all the events listed after it are also in italics, including the headings. Even the sidebar text is in italics. Looks like there is a missing closing tag somewhere. Is there an easy way to fix that, or is it just a matter of me going through the code for that event page?

    Also, is there a way to change any of the text formatting (font, size, etc) for events listed with [meetup-list]?

    • http://nuancedmedia.com/ Nuanced Media

      Alright, thanks Brian. We will look into this issue.

  • http://ashtangayoga.ro Darius II

    I would consider a next needful enhancement the add the posiblity to fillter the events after a specific host: e.g. [wp-meetup-calendar host=”Ruben-Darius M.”] or even more to consider if there are multiple hots to have something like [wp-meetup-calendar host=”*Ruben-Darius M.*”]

    • http://jamesrtyrrell.com/ James Tyrrell

      seconded, having a generic filter for events by “host”, “name” etc. Would be great as my client has internal and external events and having two calendars one for special, English, Spanish events

      would be excellent.

    Hi, my events were showing up for couple of days. But now, i didnt change anything, but they no longer show up on either widget or main page. They still show up in the backend database, and if click on them, they still come up on the website on a specific link. But it seems both short code and widgets no longer show them. Please help!

    • http://nuancedmedia.com/ Nuanced Media

      Hi Jake,

  • Larry Polyak

    Great plugin, I have tried both the event and the calendar shortcuts but I have some questions:
    1) How can I change the text color on the calendar event text?
    2) My options page looks nothing like your screenshot. I’d love to get the # of rsvp’s like that shows. How can I do that?
    3) How can I get an event list on the sidebar to look like the one on the sample website?

    • http://nuancedmedia.com/ Nuanced Media

      Hi Larry,

      I will respond to your questions in the same order that they were asked.

      1) You can’t change the color of the event text. We made an option that forced the text to be white, but if that isn’t checked then the text color should use the default link color of your WordPress theme.

      2) The options page got an update in v2.0 and we have yet to change the screenshots appropriately. We want to do this and are going to soon, but we have been very busy as of late. I apologize for the inconvenience.

      3) The sample website (http://tucsonrecess.com/) uses the built in Meetup Event List widget.

      If you have anymore questions then feel free to let us know! Thanks for using our plugin.

      • Larry Polyak

        Thank you, I got it now. The only thing I don’t see is an option for the text color to be white. That would be helpful. All I see is an option to select the background color on the calendar.

        • http://nuancedmedia.com/ Nuanced Media

          Hey Larry,

          If you go to the options tab of the WP Meetup settings pages, under the general options there is a checkbox that says “Checking this box will make all links within the calendar white instead of the color created by your theme default.” If you check that box then the event text on the calendar will be white, or should be unless your theme continues to overwrite the styles.

          • Larry Polyak

            Thanks. Don’t know how I missed that. Works like a charm!

  • http://www.zenshinzo.com/ Joe Zenshinzo

    Is the plugin supposed to generate the blog posts? It imports the event list and under events it has a “wp post id”. When I click any of the listing it comes back with the 404 page.

    • http://nuancedmedia.com/ Nuanced Media

      Hey Joe,
      This issue should be fixed by simply resetting your permalinks. This can be done by going to the WordPress function under settings->permalinks and clicking save. This resaves your current settings and links the post ID to the proper URL, and should end your 404 issue. If the problem still persists then please let us know.

  • SidneyEileen

    I just installed the plugin on a new install of WordPress. I was excited about the feature mentioned where the events would be added to the blog automatically, but I can’t find a way to do this and it did not happen automatically. Also, if I do not redirect to Meetup, links to events create a 404 error. This is the case from the front end calendar or event list, and also from the event admin page. For now I have the links redirecting to Meetup, but this is far from ideal, especially since the links do not open in a new tab. Are the 404 errors something you expect to fix in the near future? http://www.lightweaversacademy.com/events/

    • http://nuancedmedia.com/ Nuanced Media

      Hey Sidney,
      We have discovered that one of our functions isn’t working correctly on certain servers. In order to fix this, simply go to your WordPress dashboard, under settings->permalinks you can reset your permalinks by simply clicking save. This should populate the posts and allow for your posts to show up in your blog. If you still have issues then please let us know.
