This latest update seems to be a total disaster!

First, the disappearing items from all calendars. After syncing them back from MobileMe, all my calendars now show up under a MobileMe directory instead of On My Mac. What about if I didn't have a MobileMe account? What if I cancelled my MobileMe account? Would I lose everything forever?

Now, the calendars that I have published before inside iframes at my web site will not update.

I have several, but previously I just had to specify " Music" as the SRC in my iframe and the latest version of the calendar appeared there. Now, no events have been updated since the latest update fiasco. Can this be fixed?

The previous Publish routine was so simple. Now it's a mess.

    I have the same issue. I too recently upgraded. After frustration as some entries show up in Mobile Me and synched computers and some don't, i noticed I now have TWO duplicate groups of calendars on my iMac27: one is named "ON MY MAC", and the other is "....(my account)@ME.COM". I never noticed this until today, and have apparently been kind of randomly making entries in both groups on the iMac. Therefore, some synch with other devices, some don't. the entries made in the "ON MY MAC" group don't seem to synch with Mobile Me. Weird. Apple, where are you????

    Try selecting the calendar that no longer publishes to website. Select 'Calendar' from the menu bar and 'Change Location'. Leave the publishing server as mobile me and check the box 'Publish Changes Automatically '. Then, click 'Publish'. Your calendar changes should update to website now.

    Thanks dontbestupid, toggling the checkbox 'Publish changes automatically' off and then on again under 'Change Location' seemed to work for me. My changes now update to the website.
