Events Manager
[resolved] Possible Bug with Recurring Events (9 posts)

    I recently made the switch from Events Manager Extended to Events Manager.

    However I noticed a bug when rescheduling recurring events. If I try to reschedule an event that has happened in the past and will continue to happen in the future (like a weekly meeting), all the past events are duplicated in the database. If I try to delete the recurring event, it then deletes the current event and tags all the past 'duplicates' as error: corrupt database record.

    What can I do to fix this so I don't have multiple events showing up in the past?

    See http://livetheexperience.org/community/events/ to see what I am facing.

    were those past events made in EME? If so it's probably because it's based on 2.x code and i completely rewrote the recurrence engine in 3.x

    you should just delete the old events and keep the duplicates, i imagine that should fix it for you and then future updates shouldn't create duplicates (in fact, i bet if you reshedule the dupliaces, you won't see a duplicate problem again)

    When I switched plugins, I had to recreate all the events from scratch. Unless both plugins are using the same tables (which I don't think they do), I don't believe this is a bug from the transition.

    When I originally create the recurring events (with the start date in the past and it extending in the future) the event looked great.

    Then I noticed that I needed to change the description, so I hit reschedule, and when I updated the event, it never deleted the original past event when creating a new one. (One workaround is to open the rescheduling in a new tab and with that tab open, delete the event in the original list. Update the info in the reschedule tab and save).

    i would try totally removing eme before trying to mess with EM. that behaviour isn't normal, but can't tell you what eme does and am quick to blame it :).

    Ok. Totally deleted both EM and EME (and even went into the database and deleted the tables from each.

    Then I reinstalled EM. Created a new location, Created a recurring event, modified the event and the problem still exists. (I am now using EM ver 4.14)

    I also created a test blog from scratch. Default everything. (WP 3.2.1, Multisite enabled. BP v1.2.9. EM v4.14) -- on a different webhost.

    Problem still exists. See the test site here.

    Hi Cam, thanks for the effort, noted this bug down, I'll try to check this out on a similar system setup and reproduce.

    This appears to be fixed with version 4.15.

    Thanks for the update Marcus!
