Hi there! My events don’t show at the correct place on the calendar. For example the event details for 6 Feb is displaying on the calendar on 5 Feb. It seems everything is a bit scrambled! Please help!

Your styling of the html tables that you used to design your site is overriding the calender monthly styles css. Change your page to modern techniques and drop html tables for general design methods.:)
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

Liana,

Using tables to define the structure of a web page, and for positioning, is of course no longer the preferred method. It is still a valid approach, though. At some point you will probably redesign and rebuild the site using more current methods. Now may not be the opportune moment for you to do this, however, if the immediate concern is just to make the calendar work properly.

The W3C validator shows 70 errors that I think you would be well advised to take a close look at:

Who knows, maybe one or more of the errors is causing problems for the calendar...

You could also test the assertion about css conflicts by changing the relative order of the style sheets. You could, for example, move the block of calendar code in the <head> section to the very end, just before the </head> tag. Then the calendar css would override any conflicting table css instead. If there are any in-line styles in the tables, they may still override the calendar css, if indeed there is a conflict.

I have never used the CC calendar maker, so I don't know about anything specific that could cause events to end up on the wrong day...
