Support » Plugin: Events Manager » Parent pages not loading

  • Resolved rene springmann


    We got a Problem in a WordPress Multisite Installation that uses the “Events Manager” Plugin.

    Pages like “” are showing the 404 page, but Pages like “” work like normal.

    When we deaktivate the Plugin everything works fine. We also tried to only have the “Events Manager” activated but the problem still exists.

    Permalinks were rebuildet after every action we tried.

    Does anybody have a clue, or at least a hint where we could search for the Problem?

    Thank you for your help!

    are these links pages you’ve assigned to be part of Events manager e.g. for events pages etc?

    normally if this ever happens the issue is the other way around, i.e. child pages break.

    If you can provide links that may be helpful.

    Hello Marcus,

    Some of the pages contain events and list of events in their childs, but also just freshly created pages, that are not related to any event are broken.

    The Website where this happenes is At the moment there is a workaround in this page, as you can see if you look at the urls in the top-menu:
    The part “/topnav/” was created to let the page “unternehmensberatung” show up.

    In the testing enviroment we also created a page /test/ that goes to 404 and a page /test/testtest/ that is shown correctly.


    Are you using the default theme? Can you try it if not?

    Also, have you verified that your .htaccess is complete and correct?


    the multisite .htaccess is as the network management wants it.

    default theme was tested, but did not have any effect

    Are you using sub-domain or sub-directory set up for your multisite?

    If the latter, I believe that may be causing your issue. You may have a conflict between sites and slugs…


    A subdomain-configuration is used, but the different sites are on completely different domains. such as: as an other example

    Are the pages that don’t show actually Pages, or are they Category pages?

    I’m asking because I know that category pages don’t display unless there’s at least one published post in them.

    They are actual pages, not a category or anything else from a plugin etc.

    have you tried deactivating all your other plugins (including those network-activated and those in your mu-plugins folder), resaving your permalinks in a blog, and seeing if that helps?

    Alternatively try switching themes and reasaving your permalinks.

    Also, does the problem go away if you deactivate EM and resave permalinks?

    we deactivated all Plugins except EM and resaved permalinks but the problem remained, deactivated EM, the problem was gone, pages show up

    what about your theme?

    I’m running out of suggestions here… if it was an issue others were experiencing (therefore likely it’s an EM bug) I’d offer to take a look at your site but as you’re the only one with this problem I’m suspecting it’¡s something in your setup.

    So, we will give you as many information as we could collect if that may help, because we really need to do something about this.

    We are working at a testing environment to play around as we like to, so there we have all plugins deactivated in multisite config. only the EM is activated at this actual blog. Pages are normally created via backend-> new page. a new first level page goes to the 404 page, a new page in the second level, under the one in the first level is normally displayed.
    Permalink-Structure ist set to month and name.
    the wordpress network configuration says to have this .htaccess:

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    # uploaded files
    RewriteRule ^files/(.+) wp-includes/ms-files.php?file=$1 [L]
    # add a trailing slash to /wp-admin
    RewriteRule ^wp-admin$ wp-admin/ [R=301,L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteRule ^ - [L]
    RewriteRule ^(wp-(content|admin|includes).*) $1 [L]
    RewriteRule ^(.*\.php)$ $1 [L]
    RewriteRule . index.php [L]

    Maybe the Permalink-Options of the Plugin are interesting for you?
    The one for events is set to /veranstaltungen/termine the ones for places, categories and tags are empty, but here we also tried to leave all of them blank, nothing changed.

    We would really like to find a solution to this problem, because the EM is a very heavily used plugin in this case and we´d like to stay with this wonderful plugin.

    On the way Testing we activated the developer-mode in wordpress and it told us: Warning: strstr(): Empty delimiter in /var/customers/webs/lynto/dvpt/wp-content/plugins/events-manager/em-posts.php on line 253
    Does this give you a hint?

    I think that’s the problem, you can’t set permalinks to be blank, they need a value.
