Support » Plugin: Events Manager » [Plugin: Events Manager] Can't create new events suddenly – permission problem?

  • Resolved eddr



    I’ve installed “Event manager” which seems perfect for my needs and customization desires.
    Now, everything worked fine even after I did several changes to the formatting through the plugins interface.

    I left it and continued working on other things. When I got back to this, I found out that I can’t create new events and some more options are missing from the admin panel.

    That’s what I did to check it:
    1. Tried to use a link to edit some old event post I has and got the “cheatin uh?” message.

    2. restarted the plugin through the admin panel => can create new event, but when I do some changes to the settings and saves it, the new event option disappears again.

    3. Uninstalled, deleted and installed again the latest version – same problem.

    4. THEME – changed to the “twenty eleven” theme and another one – still the same.

    5. Other plugins – Have only 8 basic plugins, but I tried to deactivate them all and then restarted the “events manager” plugin – same.

    What could it be?

  • did you check user capabilities at settings > general > user capabilities ? also, what are the options that is missing? do you have a sample screenshots?


    1. Yes.
    2. The admin panel
    The plugins permissions



    please advise.
    Noone else gets this?

    Which functions is called when the submit button on the options page is clicked?

    try deactivating your other plugins, uninstall or reset events manager under settings > Admin tools

    my guess is a permissions problem caused by another plugin, doing the above should reset EMs permissions again.

    I have found the problem.
    1. One I’ve described in another thread regarding wrong array definition – “cap_docs” or something like that: It is an array of arrays and each sub-array has an extra “,” after the last item.

    2. There is a problem in the Hebrew translation. Using “%S” instead “%s” and that causes problems. One big problem is that the capabilities in the plugin’s settings sections are not shown and therefore saves as they were unchecked checkboxes – making even the administrator permissionless.

    someone sent me an updated po file which I think fixes this, so will update the next stable release.
