Events Manager
[resolved] Installation conflict problem [urgent] (4 posts)

    Hi all. We are about to deploy a site live and have an issue with including the plugin.

    Our site already has a custom content type called 'event'. If we install the EventsManager plugin, it overrides this and causes a problem.

    Is there any way we can change the content type the plugin creates before installation, so that it won't affect our existing content type?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Hi,

    Try defining Events Manager post type as early as possible (in wp-config.php for example)

    define('EM_POST_TYPE_EVENT','event');

    Obviously you have to change the word event to something that suits you

    Hi,

    If possible, I think it would be a lot less risky to rename the existing custom post type, in case edits you make are overwritten on a plugin upgrade.

    This is what we tried and it seems to have worked; subject to some more robust test of course. Thanks all.
