  • Hi joshdd,

    You should not have an actual ‘events’ page to begin with, our plugin creates this page virtually (behind the scenes) automatically. So, be sure you have no pages with that slug and be sure to empty your trash too. WordPress still keeps a slug reserved even after it has been deleted but no permanently deleted. After that try clearing Permalinks again and that should do it.

    I didn’t know not to have an events page before I installed it when I installed it.
    I assumed that the plugin would ask me what I would like the slug to be for the events page not just create it in events (I already had events used for something else). Once I realised that the plugin was automatically using the events slug, I moved my events page to “agenda”.
    Then when I decided to uninstall the plugin (because of it’s lack of recurring event feature), I tried to move “agenda” back to “events”. But the plugin had left a redirect behind so that events now just takes you to the homepage.

    But I’ve fixed it now.
    This was the solution:
    1. Open phpMyAdmin.
    2. Go to the options table in your wordpress database.
    3. Near the bottom of the options table will be rewrite rule for events page, delete it.

    Wollah, done. There were also several other entries left behind by this plugin which I deleted.

    Thanks though.

    Hi joshdd,

    Glad to hear you figured it out! Let us know if you need anything else.
