I've had an issue with recurring events submission from the web.

When an event had a start time of 7 p.m. and no listed end time, it wasn't able to accept the submission from the web when it was recurring the next day. In other words, I used a recurring event for a Friday/Saturday event that started at 7 p.m. each day. When I put in a start date of 12/12/13 and an end date of 12/13/13, it kept changing the dates so that they were both 12/13/13/ and then gave me an error of "can't be the same day". I supposed the easiest way around it is to create a single day event and then from the Blox CMS duplicate it and change the date. But couldn't understand why this wouldn't work.

For anyone who happens to encounter this, the problem was that the system defaults to midnight in the absence of a time. So I was in essence saying an event starts today, ends tomorrow, and then repeats tomorrow and ends the next day. It wasn't able to do that. By just putting in an end time before midnight, I could have resolved the problem.
