Support » Plugin: Events Manager » [Plugin: Events Manager] Upgrade to EM5 problem – Categories

  • Two questions:

    1. I have seven categories in EM 4 and when running some test upgrades to EM 5 the categories are being randomly assigned to events different than they were in EM 4. For example, an event in EM 4 that was “Entertainment” only now has “Outdoor” and “Featured” also assigned to it. Any thoughts as to why this is happening?

    2. In my current EM 4 install I have 1000+ events with many in the pending approval status. When upgrading to EM 5, it automatically makes these events active and not pending anymore. Is there a way to keep them in the pending approval status during the upgrade to EM 5?

  • I could use some advice on this if anyone has any to offer… Don’t feel like manually changing categories on each event if I don’t have to.

    I’m having pretty much the same issues, but all of my events were moved to a new category “uncategorized” and now the events widget doesn’t show events because it can’t reference the category id.

    not sure about the categories problem you have, they should assign automatically to the right ones. Do the old categories even get created?

    r.e. cat id,s you need to use the new ones assigned by WP

    I’ll make an adjustment to 5.0.4 so it takes pending events into account when importing

    Do the old categories even get created?

    I think they got created but none of the events were assigned to them. Sorry I haven’t had time to do much testing lately, I’ll try to update on my dev box and let you know if I have any problems.
