There is an error message displayed when clicking on the Calendar icon when the Settings menu is active.
But there is no error message displayed when the "Profile" and "Activity" menus are enabled.

The error message in plain text:

An error occurred when loading days visited history.

Screenshot for reference:

    This only happens in some of the subtabs under the Settings tab, not all. I'm able to open the calendar when in the "Edit profile" tab, for example.

This is fixed as of Feb 6th, 2023.

Calendar should now load on all settings pages.


I might have cracked the source of the bug, sadly I can't fix it, however this should make fixing it faster. (If I'm not wrong.)

So, when clicking the calendar icon, it sends request to https://meta.stackexchange.com/users/daily-site-access/[user-id], and replacing the user-id with the logged in user id.

However, to find the id, it looks for the active tab link and extracts the id from there. It's best seen in this screenshot:

tabs links with different user id format

As can be seen above, for the "Profile" and "Activity" tabs, the link format is /users/[user-id]/... however the "Settings" tab has a different format, and hence the calendar sends a request to https://meta.stackexchange.com/users/daily-site-access/undefined which naturally fails. (404)
