A: 1 – Be sure to set your timezone by selecting your city from WP General Options.
2 – Set time format to 24 hour
Q: After I upload an image and click “Insert into post” the image doesn’t show
A: Before clicking “Insert Into Post” make sure the “Link URL” field is populated by the image URL, if the field is empty click “File URL” to populate it. Then click insert into post.
Q: I get a destination already exists error, plugin install failed, why?
A: You should deactivate and then delete any previous versions of the the plugin then install this version.
Q. Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error.

*Upgrade to version 4.0.
*This is a major upgrade, you absolutely MUST save a copy of your current schedule and delete the previously installed version before upgrading as it will wipe-
out the existing database and start a new. You’ll also get an error because WP will be looking for a file that no longer exists.
*You may need to replace your schedule display short code to this [joan-schedule]. This is because we re-wrote the database and the plugin and removed all
references to the old database. Applies only to those upgrading from 3.2.1 or lower to 4.0.
*Wipes old database, starts fresh, saves database from there going forward.
*Removed Template Tag option, we feel the standard display options are sufficient.
