My Calendar Admin Notice

Admin Notice: The showkey, shownav, showjump, and toggle shortcode attributes have been deprecated. Use above and below instead. If you’ve recently upgraded My Calendar to version 2.2.0, you may be seeing this notice at the top of your public calendar. This is because I’ve introduced a change in version 2.2.0, and although those four shortcode attributes will continue to work for now, I do intend to remove them completely down the road — so I need people to stop using […]
