[EventCalendar] EC Query problem

USUALLY,  when you're calling a PHP routine, and you want to pass parameters
to that routine, you use the ? as a seperator between the URL and the
parameter, and additional parameters get seperated with &'s  like this
http://www.something.com/index.php?param=1234&secondparam=abcd&third_param=qwer

but in the case of calling a wordpress archive, there's no php to invoke, so
you don't do that.

So,  you end up with a url like

http://oaregion4.org/blog1/?ec3_after=today

which, by the way works perfectly, and gets you all the events after today.

The thing is, you're trying too hard.  Try this instead

http://localhost:8888/wordpress/?ec3_after=today<http://localhost:8888/wordpress/programs-events/upcoming-events/?ec3_after=today>
