Calendar application missing after upgrade

Hi,

Unfortunately, since the last system upgrade with an upgrade of the calendar app, our calendar no longer works. 
I initially thought it was because the URL is now     .../events      and I have already created a page with the same URL. Unfortunately, after changing my event site this problem persists. 
Is this only the case in our community or a fundamental problem?

@savannahjan50 Same here with the birthdays 😕 @Gary Very sad that it's a paid plugin now.

Please note that this plugin is a third party one created by a member of the community, and not an additional charge from IPS.

I understand. But before, it was included in the calendar app 😉

Please go to support in your admin CP, and you will see an optional patch available. Please apply that and see if it resolves your error

Patch applied, but problem persits 😕

Anja, we did a work around for this issue.  It takes a good bit of time and effort. 

I first searched for members who had visited with the last year.  I checked everyone on this list to see if they had added their birthday to their profile.  Then I made a hand written list of these members and their birthdays.

Next, with the created list of recently visiting members and their birthdays, I went into the calendar and added each birthday as an event, marking them as hidden.  When you add an event, it will post about it, so if it is hidden, only admin can see it.

Now, I look at the calendar every day, and at night before someone's birthday, I click on the event and 'unhide' it.  Then I post a comment under the announcement or add a birthday emoji to make the post current.

Another way to recognize birthdays is, once you have made your own list of members with their BD,  create an announcement for each one.  Yes, this is very labor intensive, but with an announcement, you can set the date for the announcement to be displayed and then made inactive the next day.  After a member's birthday, I go in and delete the announcement.

It doesn't make sense to me that the birthday function was written out of the software, how much space can that possibly take?  😠
