Sync Facebook Events
[resolved] Events Imported Multiple Times Not Resolved (20 posts)

    This was a another thread which has been marked resolved - however the solution was not posted within the forum. I am having the same issue... please help!

    Every time I do a sync, the event data is imported multiple times. Here a brief description:

    first sync:
    events are imported twice, once for author "admin" and once for post_author = 0

    every further sync:
    will do the same, so after 2 syncs each event is listed 4 times in the backend

    3. on the website each event is displayed, correctly, only once

    Any idea?

    Thanks.

    Just noticed this myself. Will see if I can suggest a patch later today.

    This plugin is incompatible with WP 3.4

    Facebook event IDs were being stored on the post->to_ping. As of 3.4, to_ping is validated as a URL (sanitize_trackback_urls()).

    Author: store your Facebook event IDs as a postmeta.

    I'll try to hack together my own fix for this tomorrow. I'll post it if it works.

    I suppose the easier way to fix it, and potentially WP core appropriate, would be to instead of putting the FB event id in the to_ping, put the full FB event URL in the to_ping. Sure, it requires more parsing in the plugin, but its viable.

    Scott,

    I tried your fix but now it doesn't update the events at all. Anyone else run into this problem?

    After i worked hours to get this PlugIn to work, i tryed this plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/all-in-one-event-calendar/

    and this Tutorial: http://help.time.ly/customer/portal/articles/616553-how-do-i-use-the-facebook-import-

    5minutes later, everything works fine :)

    Its no solution for the people how need to use "The Events Calendar" but for everybody else i think its a easy road :)

    Scott, If you would like to be an official maintainer, please let me know and I'll add you.

    Modern Tribe has released a paid version for similar functionality, that is probably the best option for anyone at this point.

    I Would really like to keep this free version around as an option and as long as modern tribe allows it, but I no longer have the time to personally maintain it.

    Sure, why not? I plan to use it for my site, kcimprov.com, for the foreseeable future. Might as well release updates for others while I'm at it. I'm not planning any major upgrades, just maintenance.
