Cannot access calendar beyond this week. It looks like I am not the only one.

Is your problem fixed? It should be...

I'm still having this problem today. If I click "home" and then try to move forward to the next week with the ">>" button, the week does not change. However, if I force a refresh, it does load the next week. If I click ">>" twice and then refresh, it correctly moves to 2 weeks ahead. It's just not updating on its own. I'm using Chrome.

I am not able to reproduce this issue, although many people are experiencing it. Would you be able to open your Chrome Developer Console (CTRL+SHIFT+J) and tell me if you find any red messages in there after trying to go to the next week?

This is what I get after it won't go to the next week:

It doesn't happen every time, but I'd say it happens around 50% of the time trying to move forward a week. As I said before, a refresh of the screen does clear it temporarily and put it to the correct week, But it comes right back again.

Unfortunately, this screenshot doesn't help me figure out what the issue is :( There doesn't seem to be any error there...

I just noticed that you said that it only happens about 50% of the time. If you try to go to the next week straight away after loading weekplan, does it work properly for you?

It depends. Sometimes it does, but sometimes it doesn't.

Here's something I just noticed. I usually use Weekplan as a separate Chrome window through the option to "create application shortcuts." I am having the problem 50% of the time when I use it in a separate window. However, I was just playing with it as a regular tab in my main Chrome window, and I encountered NO problem when flipping through weeks for several minutes. I went back and reopened it in the separate window and sure enough, it's still got the bug. Not sure that this has anything to do with it, but there's a definite difference.

To add to what I previously noticed: I just reset my application shortcut to go to the main weekplan.net site instead of the app.weekplan.net site.... and there is no problem at all. Judging from what I'm seeing, it seems that the problem is limited to when Weekplan is used as a separate Chrome app window. Also, using it this way seems to be problematic because if the application shortcut is set for app.weekplan.net, it automatically bookmarks and saves the current week - at the time of setting up the app - so when loading up Weekplan in future weeks, it starts on the old week and the home button is also set to that week. Perhaps a true Chrome app (for those of us who want a full-screen app window and don't have Windows 8)  would fix all of these problems? I do have the Chrome extension but it's not as useful because its view is so limited.

Unfortunately I cannot reproduce the issue BUT I have made a small change that will prevent WeekPlan to rewrite the url so that it stays https://app.weekplan.net after loading. It means that if you bookmark it, you will not encounter the issue you mentioned with the "pinned" week.

It will be available in the next release.
