Support » Plugin: Events Manager » Allow event slug to be specified

    I wrote a standalone script to import events from another site.
    The events are for musicians in a bar. Many of the musicians play regularly.

    I use EM_Event::save() after creating a new EM_Event() object and populating some of the values.

    	$EM_Event = new EM_Event();
    	$EM_Event->event_name = $event_title;
    	// Append date to event so that the url of repeated events look better.
    	$event_slug = sanitize_title($event_title.' '.$event_start_date);
    	$EM_Event->event_slug = $event_slug;
    	$EM_Event->post_name = $EM_Event->event_slug;
    	$EM_Event->post_content = $event_description;
    	$EM_Event->event_owner = $author_id;
    	$EM_Event->location_id = $location_id;
    	
    	$EM_Event->event_start_date = $event_start_date;
    	$EM_Event->event_end_date = $event_end_date;
    	$EM_Event->event_start_time = $event_start_time;
    	$EM_Event->event_end_time = $event_end_time;
    	$EM_Event->start = strtotime($EM_Event->event_start_date.' '.$EM_Event->event_start_time);
    	$EM_Event->end = strtotime($EM_Event->event_end_date.' '.$EM_Event->event_end_time);
    

    Unfortunately, $EM_Event->event_name is sent to wp_insert_post() [as ‘post_title’] but $EM_Event->post_name isn’t.
    This results in event slugs like Band-name, Band-name-2, Band-name-3 etc.
    I would like to have Band-name-2017-10-01 (name – date).

    Would it be possible to send post_name to wp_insert_post()?

    Thanks, I’ve passed this on to the Dev team for consideration.
