  • p.s. I can edit the event but if I click view event after editing, I get the same 404 error.

    For anyone following this, I had been exploring changing the permalink structure so wp_list_pages would correctly display events nested under their category – I tried using Settings-Pages-Permalink slugs to create a better permalink and accidentally left a slash mark after events. (if you look at the meta box, it’s prepopulated with a default ‘events’ and I left it as ‘events/’ My efforts didn’t work because what I wanted was site_url/events/event-category/event-sub-category/event but you can’t hardcode that – I was hoping events manager would use a constant that would reference the categories – so much thought and time no doubt went into this plugin i wish i were more knowledgeable to contribute to making it even better by allowing for breadcrumbs and nested navigations (which would show the event properly nested) that make use of wordpress’ own mechanisms for them.

    Do you still need help with this or were you able to fix things for yourself?

    Thanks for following up! No, I haven’t sorted this out yet. I’ve tried a few approaches:
    http://www.limecanvas.com/how-to-set-a-page-as-the-parent-of-a-wordpress-custom-post-type/
    http://juiceboxinteractive.com/ideas/making-custom-post-types-behave-like-pages/
    https://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/wp_list_pages#List_members_of_a_custom_post_type
    I haven’t been successful with these. I don’t know php well enough to understand why changing the following lines in em_posts.php breaks the plugin and/or results in a 404 not found error when navigating to individual events:
    ll. 168 'show_in_nav_menus'=>false, to true
    ll. 173 'hierarchical' => false, to ‘true’
    ll. 176 'rewrite' => array('slug' => 'events-recurring','with_front'=>false), to true
    A lot of the recommendations I’ve read involve these changes. It occurred to me to try using EM’s own interface in Settings > Pages > Permalinks but the same 404 error occurred.
    I’m basically trying to get wp_list_pages to recognize the events cpt posts as hierarchical so that if user is on promoting-the-arts/exhibits/current-exhibits/Turrell I can use wp_list_pages and get a sidebar menu that will allow the user to return to any of the ancestor pages and be aware of where s/he is in the chain. My attempts with using a custom nav walker also failed. I’m hoping it’s possible to use a native wordpress approach rather than rolling my own menu because I feel like it would be better all around for the client. Thanks for any help/insights!
