[resolved] Possible to change "location" taxonomy? (4 posts)

    I already have a "location" taxonomy that's heavily tied into other areas, and it conflicts with Event Manager's location taxonomy. When submitting an event, I see the following error in Chrome:

    HTTP Error 500 (Internal Server Error): An unexpected condition was encountered while the server was attempting to fulfill the request.

    If I disable the EM location option things work great.

    Question is, can I change the default "location" taxonomy that EM uses?

    you might want to turn-on WP_DEBUG to see if there's any other error and also you can check php file em-posts.php.

    there is a way, but it's untested, and not really recommended. However, it was done for these extreme cases.

    In your wp-config.php file, you can change the post types by defining them as on em-posts.php so for locations, you'd add e.g.


    note that you can't change this back and forth, it's permanent for that blog, unless you go in to your DB and change all the post_type values in wp_posts

    Thanks for your help. I set the following in wp-config and I'm good to go.


    Just a reminder to anyone else trying this...don't forget to re-save the Permalink settings after defining these settings.
