#5234 new defect

Weekly Chats widget is frequently incorrect

Reported by: crstauf Owned by:

Component: Make (Get Involved) / P2 Keywords: has-screenshots


The "Weekly Chats" widget on make.wordpress.org is nearly always incorrect. Initially I thought it was a caching problem, but after checking for a few days, that does not seem to be the case.

[First noticed the issue](https://cloudup.com/cd4_mqFeEMP) on Monday at 16:57 UTC right after #docs meeting, on this page: https://make.wordpress.org/docs/2020/03/16/external-linking-in-docs-policy/.

Checked again today, and it's even stranger, saying that there's a meeting today in one hour: https://cloudup.com/iBbDHtw2W08.

From my perspective, there are two tasks involved in this ticket:

  1. fix the scheduling glitch
  2. implement JS to show the correct relative time to bypass cache

  • Component changed from WordPress.org Site to Make (Get Involved) / P2

This is caused by the "fix" in r15912-dotorg which no longer adds the next_date property, causing the next date to be an empty strings to gets converted to today.

The proper fix seems to be https://github.com/Automattic/meeting-calendar/pull/100.
