The Events Calendar
[resolved] Data not saving in fields (60 posts)

    Hi, I am currently using Version 2.0.1 and notice that some fields (like location & org details) are not saving when I try to update them.

    Has anyone experienced the same issue on fields not saving/updating?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Same problem here. Event location fields are not saving. Anyone know a workaround?

    I noticed that some fields only save if other fields are filled in. For example, in location details if I did not enter a venue name, I was not able to enter a country either. In organizer details, I was not able to enter a website without first entering an organizer name.

    Like you, it appeared these fields were not saving, and it was only after playing around with it for a bit that I realized certain fields are required in each section.

    I am having the same problem -- forgot to include organizer info and link when I created the event, and now when I go back to add that information it is not being saved. Even if I fill in all fields the new data is not saved. I hit "publish" and my additions disappear. I'm hoping this is a bug that will be fixed in the upcoming update? Right now what I am not able to save is: location, organizer, and organizer link. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Same here. I can't change the location details (e.g. phone number). It always brings back the value entered when first entering and saving the event.

    This should be fixed in 2.0.2, which is coming out on Monday. Please let us know if the issue persists upon upgrading and my apologies for the inconvenience until then.

    Just an update...we introduced a somewhat critical bug just as we were leading up to 2.0.2 launch, so it's been delayed a bit. Aiming to get it out by the end of this week.

    Just installed version 2.0.2 and noticed, that this has not been fixed and e.g. a changed phone number is not saved. Is this right? Or should this have been fixed in 2.0.2, which is obliviously not.
    Thanks for clearing this.

    Hi gerobe. Looks like the version we released did not have this functionality; it was pushed to 2.1, according to our records, to ensure we got 2.0.2 out in a timely fashion. 2.1 is what we're shifting our focus to now so that's the next priority. Rest assured that it is still on the radar and will be fixed for the broader update. I apologize for the confusion on this and for the inconvenience on your end.

    Hi, I need to use this plugin for a project at work that is due soon.
    It has to function flawlessly.
    Currently I am having problems mentioned here with the data not being saved when I make changes. I was wondering, does the "pro" version of this plug in have the same problems?

    thanks so much,
    Jesse

    Having same issue.. Does anyone know a workaround for this bug ?

    Not being able to change the entered data is quite a big bug. Hope it will be fixed soon.

    @navyad
    The only workaround is editing the data directly in the mySQL-Database via phpmyadmin.

    gerobe, I agree -- can you please tell me what table and field to look in, to make these edits if necessary? At this point in site development I am pretty committed to this plug-in, so I have to figure out a work-around until the bug is fixed. Thank you!

    So far, I have been just deleting the entry & re-publishing with the correct data.. which will not work for a client obviously.

    Does anybody know if the same bug exists in the pay/premium version of this plug in?
    Would hate to invest a lot of time developing with this, only to find out it's not functional. Would gladly pay the $50 if it works..

    This is a known issue happening for organizers/venues in core (free), and will be resolved for 2.1. Apologies for the inconvenience in the interim.

    To address jesse's question: this isn't a problem in PRO, since it uses saved venues/organizers. If you need to change the details of something like a venue address or organizer phone number, you can change that by just modifying the saved venue/organizer entry on the site's backend.

    We'll get this resolved for you non-PRO users as soon as possible. As it stands this is our top 2.1 bug so hopefully a fix will be ready very shortly here.

    My clients and I are looking forward to the fix as well. It's a pretty unpleasant bug. Thanks!

    Hey guys. This is confirmed as fixed in the 2.0.3 code base, which we're just nailing down a few issues on. (I've tested it myself and changes to venue/organizer data on existing entries are confirmed as now functional & saving as they should). No guarantees on the release date, but we're on track for and aiming to have it live early next week.

    If anyone is in a real pinch and needs the code before then, feel free to send me an email (rob at tri.be) and I can get you the code in its current form. Thanks!

    Any update on this release?

    So I have upgraded to 2.0.3 and I am able to make changes to the Event Organize and Event Location -- BUT once I update, those fields are blank on the edit event post page. The changes are visible on the site. However, if I go in to update again -- and don't fill out all the fields -- previously entered information is lost (the fields are emptied). Will there be an additional update soon, or do you think something went wrong with my upgrade? Thanks!

    I echo 2cats experience. Location and organizer info doesn't get pulled into the update form. When you enter data and click the update button the new data gets saved to the database (and updates the live site) but that info disappears in the form next time you try to update.

    Bummer.

    I didn't experience this problem with 2.0.2 but since upgrading to 2.0.3 today, I can't save venue info.

    Was hoping to launch today. Guess that's out. I'm going back to 2.0.2 to see if that resolves the issue for me, at least.

    I was having the same issue

    I have been meaning to upgrade to Pro, so I went ahead and did that

    Problem with saving/filling Venues and Organizers fields went away

    We're working on a fix for this now, guys. Sorry to hear that you encountered issues again - in all our pre-launch testing this was working fine and it still does in our testing environment, so somehow the fix isn't impacting all users. We apologize for the inconvenience and are working on a resolution now.
