Support » Plugin: Events Manager » [Plugin: Events Manager] is there a way to restore the default settings?

  • I installed Events Manager 3.0.9 yesterday and was disappointed in the RSS feed that was generated. So I uninstalled it. Then, not finding a better plugin with RSS, I reinstalled it. But when I reinstalled it, the placeholders in the settings were blank. I tried to find an option to restore the default settings, but didn’t find them. I also didn’t find them in any of the documentation. How can I restore the default placeholders in the settings? Do you have a list of these somewhere, or can you send me a screen shot of these?

    Hi gkemp,

    what’s lacking in the RSS features?

    That shouldn’t happen, do you have any other events plugins installed? It might also be that you installed a plugin that corrupted our installation data (events manager extended might do that, not related to us at all so I don’t know). If that happened, you may need to go into your database and do this:

    Deactivate plugin. If you don’t have any events already, delete the wp_dbem_ and wp_em_ tables, and in wp_options run this:
    DELETE FROM wp_options WHERE option_name LIKE '%dbem_%';

    and then activate again.

    You’re correct. I did install events manager extended, had some problems with that, and uninstalled that. I reinstalled events manager and had the problem. So I uninstalled that, deleted the wp_dbem tables and the dbem options in wp_options. Then I uploaded a fresh copy of em and ran the install. Still don’t have the default placeholders.

    The problem with the RSS was that the dates didn’t show up correctly. I was seeing date years like 1969. I ran the RSS through the w3 validator and didn’t see a date field in the xml. I can work with the RSS if I get EM installed again. It is basically what I need and I like it.

    Thanks for the quick reply!

    update: I had deleted the wp_option rows by hand and missed some. I’m trying that now.

    The “DELETE” sql fixed it.

    Thanks again. Nice job with the EM plugin.

    I’ll post more information about the RSS problem I’m having in a separate post once I’ve tried it out again.

    Glad to hear you got it working.

    RSS isn’t something we’ve worked on much, but then again nobody’s complained about the RSS content to date so if it ain’t broke…. 🙂
