Events app not appearing in dashboard after upgrade

Updated Perch from 2.x to 3.x and updated the apps and the Events app is not appearing in the dashboard (although the Blog and Forms apps are). What can I do to troubleshoot this?

Commenting to follow.

Hmm... I'm surprised to have no response on this. What other information can I provide?

There was no response because you indicated you were going to follow up with more information, but you didn't.

What do you see under Settings > Diagnostics > Add-ons ?

 Blog 5.5.1 is up to date
 Events 1.9.5 is up to date
 Forms 1.9.1 is up to date

(p.s. — sorry, by "Commenting to follow." I meant I added a comment so I could be sure to get email notifications)

It doesn't look like the Events app is installed. Have you tried replacing it?

I tested this in a development environment. Both Perch and Events app are up to date. The Events app does not appear in the dashboard for me either.

It looks like maybe the Events app dashboard.php hasn't been updated for Perch 3 yet. Here is a hacked-together version to use until it is officially updated (replace addons/apps/perch_events/dashboard.php with this):

    return function() {

    $API   = new PerchAPI(1.0, 'perch_events');
    $Lang  = $API->get('Lang');

    $Paging = $API->get('Paging');

    $Events = new PerchEvents_Events($API);
    $events = $Events->all($Paging);

<div class="widget">
  <div class="dash-content">
      <h2><?php echo $Lang->get('Events'); ?></h2>
      <a href="<?php echo PerchUtil::html(PERCH_LOGINPATH.'/addons/apps/perch_events/edit/'); ?>" class="button button-small button-icon icon-left action-info"><div><?php echo PerchUI::icon('core/plus', 8).'<span>'.$Lang->get('Add event'); ?></span></div></a>
    <div class="body">
        if (PerchUtil::count($events)) {
          echo '<ul class="dash-list">';
          foreach($events as $Event) {
            echo '<li>';
              echo '<a href="'.PerchUtil::html(PERCH_LOGINPATH.'/addons/apps/perch_events/edit/?id='.$Event->id()).'">';
                echo PerchUtil::html($Event->eventTitle());
              echo '</a>';
              echo '<span class="note">'.PerchUtil::html(strftime('%d %B %Y, %l:%M %p', strtotime($Event->eventDateTime()))).'</span>';
            echo '</li>';
          echo '</ul>';

Ah, you literally mean the dashboard widget. I'd missed that.

No worries, it's fixed for now!
