Support » Plugin: The Events Calendar » Calendar Link Redirecting to Homepage

  • Resolved nspuckett


    The calendar URL on one of the websites I manage is redirecting to the homepage.

    I had updated the plugin, which crashed the site, then restored the previous version of the plugin, which brought the site back, but then the calendar URL wouldn’t direct to the calendar. I updated the plugin again, and I still can’t get to the calendar. Events are still appearing on the homepage via The Events Calendar Shortcodes plugin, and the links to individual events seem to work fine.

    Also completely deleted and reinstalled the plugin. Still nothing.

    I don’t know if I’d call this resolved exactly, but I changed the URL slug from /events/ to /calendar/ in the plugin settings, and now it’s working fine.


    Hey nspuckett,

    This sounds like it might be related to rewrite rules and them needing to be flushed. When you updated that slug from “events” to “calendar” the rewrite rules got flushed so the views were working again. If you change it back, “events” should start working again.

    For future reference though, if you ever have an issue with events or any other content on your WordPress site behaving oddly with 404 or redirecting, try going to the Settings > Permalinks section of your dashboard and just re-saving the current settings there.

    Let me know if this helps.

    Thanks Josh. I had tried switching back to “events” and it was still misbehaving, so I just went with “calendar.” I don’t know.

    Thanks for the permalinks tip though!
