[Resolved] [Plugin: Events Manager] Installation problems (any version)

  • I have an established website which includes events. I recently tried to install Events Manager (current version) and am having installation problems.

    I installed version 4.305 and got the following error:

    WordPress database error: [Table 'nexus_wordpress.wp_em_events' doesn't exist]
    SELECT COUNT(event_id) FROM wp_em_events LEFT JOIN wp_em_locations ON wp_em_locations.location_id=wp_em_events.location_id WHERE <code>recurrence</code>=1 AND (<code>event_status</code>=0 OR <code>event_status</code> = 0 )
    
    SELECT COUNT(*) FROM wp_em_events LEFT JOIN wp_em_locations ON wp_em_locations.location_id=wp_em_events.location_id WHERE (<code>recurrence</code>!=1 OR <code>recurrence</code> IS NULL) AND (<code>event_status</code>=0 OR <code>event_status</code> IS NULL ) ORDER BY event_start_date ASC, event_start_time ASC, event_name ASC

    Also
    Events Manager upgrade not complete, please upgrade to the version 3.0.96 or higher first from here first before upgrading to this version. We made a screencast to help you out.

    Keep in mind that this is a new install, I’m not upgrading from an old version. But, since that’s what the error suggested, I tried deleting and installing version 3.0.96, and got the following error:

    Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error.
    
    Cannot proceed with installation, please upgrade to the version 3.0.96 from here first before upgrading to this version.

    I also tried the latest (beta) release to see if maybe this was a known bug with 4.305 that was fixed in the latest, and I got:

    SELECT COUNT(event_id) FROM wp_em_events LEFT JOIN wp_em_locations ON wp_em_locations.location_id=wp_em_events.location_id WHERE (recurrence!=1 ORrecurrenceIS NULL) AND (event_status=0 ORevent_status` = 0 )

    WordPress database error: [Table ‘nexus_wordpress.wp_em_events’ doesn’t exist]
    SELECT COUNT(event_id) FROM wp_em_events LEFT JOIN wp_em_locations ON wp_em_locations.location_id=wp_em_events.location_id WHERE recurrence=1 AND (event_status=0 OR event_status = 0 )`

    Okay. So here’s what I think is happening: I said this is an established website. I currently have events plugins, and have several previously installed plugins that I tested out before. Most likely, there is something in the database that is causing a conflict, but I’m not sure what it is. However, the website is live, so I don’t want to delete my entire database, and I can’t completely remove my other events plugin before installing this one. (Of course, I deactivated it for this install, but that had no effect.)

    The current plugin that I’m using is EventPress, and I also previously had installed Jet Event System and probably a number of other plugins too. If there is a known conflict with another plugin and someone can tell me how to get rid of it, that would be super-awesome.

    I’m guessing you installed Events Manager Extended, which isn’t us. Chances are if you delete the dbem_version record in your wp_options page, and delete all wp_em_… prefixed tables from your DB, it should reinstall itself.

    Aha, we’re both right!

    I did what you said, and also went through and deleted all the events plugins tables from the database.

    Turns out, I had tested out Events Manager Extended/Events Made Easy in the past, which uses the dbem_ prefix. It had created a dbem_version entry, which was messing up the installation.

    Let it be known that there is a conflict with Events Manager Extended, a plugin which is now known as Events Made Easy.

    Thanks for you help!

    They’re the same, Franky insists on confusing people.

    I do not, look at the page for “Events Manager Extended”: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/events-manager-extended/ , it clearly states that the name has changed to “Events Made Easy” (which no longer uses the dbem prefix btw). I no longer update or advertise “Events Manager Extended”.

    I’ve asked you many times for over a year, very nicely, to just stop mentioning Events Manager in your plugin name, yet you still do! That’ll probably dramatically reduce confusion. Calling it ‘expired Events Manager Extended’ is still confusing (enough posts on here prove this) and not what I asked, I consider this still using our good name and efforts.

    I get these requests every day… you just divert/waste time from allowing me to make a better plugin for all.

    So, I wish you could take a real concrete step to prove that your intentions are not malevolent instead of wasting both of our times by going around what you really can do to solve this issue. Will gladly take this back when you do! Don’t think it’s much to ask considering it took you 5 minutes to change the name.

    I registered “Events Manager Extended” with wordpress.org without any problem, yet you complained (many months later). I reluctantly renamed the plugin to “Events Made Easy” (which took a whole lot more than 5 minutes), yet you still complained (and threatened to take “further actions”). I renamed the old plugin to “Expired plugin Events Manager Extended, use Events Made Easy”, and still you are not satisfied. I wonder where the “malevolent part” on my behalf is?
    Once more I will cave in and change the old name, to just “Expired plugin, use Events Made Easy”, just to stop this useless waste of *my* time.

    Again, our one single request since we realized you existed is stop using Events Manager in your plugin name, because we aren’t stopping development (you’d know had you tried to email us directly to begin with rather than spamming an unanswered forum, that’s what I did with Davide). It’s not wp.org’s job to play judge judy, although I think eventually they’ll need a plugin policy.

    Finally! That’s all we wanted all along. It’s not changed yet, but thanks in advance and hopefully we don’t have to speak again about it anymore and focus on coding plugins!

    2 months on, still waste time on this stuff thanks to confused users… here’s a simple example – http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-events-manager-_locationallevents-not-showing?replies=11

    I thank Franky in advance too often, because he never follows through with his promises (fully).

    Franky, it’s still apparent to me that you have some malevolent reason for not doing a <5min job yet you can still find the time to support your plugin.

    What are you now complaining about? Just about every time you accuse me of being malevolent, while I in fact even changed the name of the plugin (which WAS NOT EVEN NEEDED as per wordpress rules). If there’s an issue in my version of the plugin, why not just be polite and tell me about the issue?

    Plugin Author Marcus

    @netweblogic

    I’ve repeated myself enough to you Franky, and asked you nicely enough times now. You’re just being difficult now, to put it in very very nice words.

    All I’m asking is you remove the EVENTS MANAGER from your plugin name. very very simple request lasting 1+ year. You said you’d do it above, yet you haven’t.

    Or am I missing something here? It only took you a few mins to reply, so obviously you’re able to do this change you said to do on here, you just don’t want to for some reason, and I maintain it’s not with good intentions.

    What’s wrong with the way it is now? See
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/events-made-easy/
    It’s not in the plugin name, and hasn’t been for a long time.

    And just because I can reply on a forum post slating my name, doesn’t mean I have svn access from the network I’m on now.

    @netweblogic

    Are you joking!?

    Unless you’ve grossly misunderstood me and Davide’s previous polite requests all this time, you’ve just proved my point on how you’re stringing us along. Read this entire thread as an example. Considering you wrote this further up, I can only think so:

    Once more I will cave in and change the old name, to just “Expired plugin, use Events Made Easy”, just to stop this useless waste of *my* time.

    yet you now write

    What’s wrong with the way it is now? See
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/events-made-easy/
    It’s not in the plugin name, and hasn’t been for a long time.

    Again, I am not slating your name, I’m stating the facts here. I have better things to do than think about you, such as working on my own plugins and making WP a better place to work on. Unless you’re on a 2 month trip, you had time to do this, you’re just BS-ing everyone and playing the fiddle about how we’re victimizing you.

    So, stop being shady and either do it, or, just man up and say you won’t do it and make your intentions clear. If you do the first one, that’s all I asked in the first place.

    Again: just tell me what’s wrong with it so I can fix it. Just saying all the time “fix it” doesn’t help if you don’t tell me what’s wrong.
    For the record: you agreed last time with the changes I made, so for the love of God, what in earth are you talking about???? Tell me *in words* the error I made on a page of “Events Made Easy” so I can fix it, yes?

    On a sidenote: (and I can post old mails if they’re not junk by now), you’re not that polite a man you claim to be: you threatened to take legal actions against me if I didn’t change the name of my plugin (which was, as said before, approved by WordPress plugin managers and thus changing the name was not needed). Not very polite indeed. You accused me multiple times of being of malicious intent. For what, a plugin I continue to develop for free in my free time?
    I’m under the impression that every few months you feel the urge of attacking me again, just for the fun of it. Stop that, it bores me.

    Please do not. These forum do not wish to become involved in copyright issues relating to the publishing of private emails.

    In fact I think it would be far better all round if this discussion was taken to email – full stop. A public forum is not the right place for it.

    Agreed, and I apologize for letting myself getting carried away like that.
