The Events Calendar
[resolved] Breaks WP search when used together with “WP Publications Archive” (12 posts)

    When I use “The Events Calendar” together with “WP Publications Archive,” the WordPress search stops working, that is, it no longer returns any results (though it does not give any error messages).

    After some testing I found out that the search works fine unless I activate “The Events Calendar” and “WP Publications Archive,” any ideas? I cannot easily replace either plugin.

    I'm not sure jpod, we weren't previously aware of that but we'll mark it down as a conflict and look out for further reports.

    Hi guys,

    I am having the same problem and would really love to keep your plugin, but we have to have the documents searchable. Was this ever resolved? We really need to resolve this week, so a quick reply would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

    kpatrick33: it has not been resolved, we've made a note to look into it though and will do so as soon as we can :-)

    Have you reached out to the author of the other plugin?

    Thanks kpatrick33 - can you confirm if either of you have reached out to the author of WP Publications Archive on this one?

    Yes, and no response from the publications archive that I have seen.

    Actually, I'm not sure it's the interaction with publication archive - the search doesn't pull anything at all when events calendar is active, including page content.

    kpatrik33: can you clarify - do you mean you are finding that with only The Events Calendar active your site search fails to work as expected?

    If so that is definitely not something I can replicate and we'd really need further details (though, if there is a problem along these lines that is quite independent of a conflict with the publications archive plugin then I'd encourage you to create a new thread).

    Thanks!

    Hi Barry,

    I retested to be sure - the problem does only occur when both the WP Publication Archive and Events Calendar plugins are activated. Unfortunately I still have not heard back from the author of the publication archive.

    Hey kpatrick33. Sorry we can't offer up more here; this is unfortunately something you'll probably need to take up with that other plugin's dev. But if they note that there is something we're doing wrong in our codebase that goes against WordPress best practices and is causing a conflict, we'd definitely be open to working with them to patch it.
