One more thing that I should add which I thought was strange is that when the edit link changes/loses the calendar name then the date also transposes. Not sure that means anything.

Your have submitted a new calendar event.Keep this link someplace safe:

http://www.localendar.com/edit/ohvaparents?key=J5H1VVK0TRFM

It is the only way for you to return to this event to edit or delete it.

Thanks - the testing does help, because we can't duplicate this issue on our side. If we could, I wouldn't have to bother you.

I am calling out to any other people who allow visitors to add events - have you ever had this problem?

First - a question I should have asked earlier: The edit link that your users are using: Are they copying it off the web page, or from a confirmation email they receive?

I can tell you that we've made a complete additional pass over the code, cleaned up a few things that we thought might be potential issues, and then did 5 back-and-forths to test your specific use case (no issues encountered) as well as our complete test suite for adding/editing/deleting events (you can imagine, this is pretty important functionality so we don't want to break anything!)

BTW, where did you see the date transpose? On the actual event date itself, on the last mofified date, or in the description (If in the description, they it must have been a typo; we don't edit/change that text in any way)

I have been copying the link from emails that I receive. The link is not active when it comes in so that is the only option. You can't even control and click it.

The transposition of the date occurs in the emails I receive. What I posted in the previous reply was taken directly from the emails that I have received. When the edit link loses its calendar path then the dates transposes. i.e. 11/14/2013 becomes 14/11/2013

I will copy solely from the web page in another test and see if that makes any difference. I know we discussed web browsers but I don't think that is the trouble because I have other parents who experience the same problem.

The problem is not visitors adding events, the problem is visitors editing events when the monitor has changed them from private to public. Sometimes the function works but eventually it does not. There is no set time of the edit process where the link just gives out.

I do believe that the edit link works properly when the add event posts public without monitor intervention.

Thanks for your help.

Just curious if you have seen this happen anymore since we completely changed the way these links are created?

To clarify one point; the email link you receive is not the same as the re-edit link the user gets. That link in your email should be something like "http://localendar.com.../?DAM=EventEditor&event_id=..."
The users who submit events are getting something more like:
http://www.localendar.com/edit/ohvaparents?key=...

After you change an event from Private to Public, that link emailed to the calendar owner isn't valid anymore.

The date in the email you receive should be formatted according to the date preference of the calendar owner. We'll have a look. This is just a convenience of the notification. It does not change how the data are stored in our system.
