So I am working on updating a drupal site that was very out of date, I have updated everything to the latest versions. When I updated the Calendar module things started going awry, now most of my views don't display anything. I'm assuming this error is the reason:

Warning: include(__custom_path__/sites/all/modules/calendar/views-view-fields.tpl.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in theme_render_template() (line 1525 of __custom_path__/includes/theme.inc).

I've searched and while there are numerous potential fixes none have worked. The last one I tried, adding a empty version of the views-view-fields.tpl.php and that only creates a different error where theme.inc can't find calendar.views.inc because it look for it at the path calendar/calendar.views.inc instead of calendar/includes/calendar.views.inc

Why is it looking for this in calendar instead of views? What can I do to fix this?

  • Did you try registry_rebuild drupal.org/project/registry_rebuild and of course cache clear? Also could you tell from what version to what version you updated?

  • When running registry_rebuild form drush this is the output: The registry has been rebuilt via registry_rebuild (A).

  • for the calendar module it was 7.x-2.x-dev -> 7.x-3.5 The registry rebuild nor cache clear affected anything.

  • can you revert back? maybe try updgrading one version at a time, rather than such a large leap - there could be DB adjustments not being done properly because the range of versions

I cannot reproduce this myself but take a look at


It is an old ticket but is for the 7.x-2.x-dev branch and basicly it says disable your module remove the module directory and reinstall it so something like

Will disable the module.

 drush dis calendar

Will uninstall the module (if the module has a uninstall hook)

drush pmu calendar

Remove the directory

rm -rf __custom_path__/sites/all/modules/calendar

Most likely not necessary but wont hurt but will rebuild the registry and clear all cache

drush rr
drush cc all

Download the newest version of the module

drush dl calendar

And enable it.

drush en calendar

It should remove all traces of the old calendar and add a clean copy/install.

I would also do a drush updatedb just to double check if after all that everything is still in order.

  • Thanks for the clear instructions on this. I'm a little weak in the drupal admin dept. but this worked perfectly.
