The Events Calendar
About to roll back to 1.6. (15 posts)

    I have now found that I have a new/additional 'Events' menu on my WordPress menu bar. However .. All previous events, which were created and seen as 'posts', have disappeared from my homepage as posts and now only appear in my new 'events' menu. How do I ensure that they are BOTH?

    My standard 'new post' editor no longer has an events section, so a real separatrion of 'events' from 'posts' now seems apparant with V2 & a retro step methinks.

    OK, so now my events posts are in events menu, HOW do I post this new events calendar to my homepage menus as I just cant seem to see a way!

    Very frustrated and now gonna try to roll back to 1.6!

    I feel similarly to you, but that's how they've gone with this version. :(

    The WordPress.org page for the project makes it very clear you should be careful and backup before proceeding, but unfortunately they can't really warn you through the automatic update process.

    Rather hilariously, I just noticed that another plugin, Events Manager, is planning to go the OTHER WAY, moving from a model where events aren't regular posts to one where they ARE regular posts. Apparently for exactly the kind of flexibility I value in TEC 1.6.

    Marcus, presumably the developer, wrote this week in the forums, "this will be possible soon (working on making events posts, so you'll be able to have 'private' events)."

    Thats interesting bwp. Glad that someone has a solution for you folks. We'll be addressing that need in the near future, but probably with a different approach.

    One quick fix if you like

    as robertoc posted in http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-the-events-calendar-incorporate-upcoming-event-into-blog?replies=3

    you can use this before the loop:

    query_posts( array( 'post_type' => array( 'post', 'tribe_events' ) ) );

    In this way, the events are listed together with your "normal" posts.

    I don't know about them "having a solution" -- I suspect it's a LOT of work to switch from one style to another (witness your 2.0 development process) so I wouldn't really expect Events-Manager to work the way TEC 1.6 does any time soon!

    I think we're sticking with The-Events-Calendar.

    Yes and because the event posts are now in their own "section" for the plugin, that's what's causing the issue with the Headway Theme and many other themes that can't recognize these event "posts" properly (in the headway visual editor). Definitely a BIG step backwards and makes me cautious of other plugin/theme conflicts with using this.

    Yeah, I think I saw robertoc's post earlier -- but that doesn't help me include TEC 2.x Events in regular WP categories, does it?

    hey rvlawrence,

    you really should check in with headway folks in their support forum. According to their docs (I just looked quick) they do appear to have custom post type support. Here is a tutorial they made last month on integrating custom post types: http://headwaythemes.com/headway-tutorials/screencast-tuesday-creating-custom-post-types-with-headway/.

    I'm not saying that it will work out of the box, but rather that this isn't such a black and white picture.

    bwp - that is exactly what that code does. Includes you events into the main loop.

    Really? I can then assign regular WordPress Categories to TEC 2.x events, just as I did in in 1.x?

    I thought it didn't work that way any more.

    You can, but not out of the box. Let me work with our dev to get you the code you'll need to make that happen. Will drop in here once I've got it...

    I dont know if THIS is related to upgrading my Events Calendar to V2, or because I have been fiddling elsewhere in my config settings, BUT, I no longer have the rich/smart editing toolbar functions like font colour, paragraph styles, spell checker, table creator etc. I now only have heading functions just like those in THIS edit box!

    Can anyone advise how I get these back please?

    I updated to version 2 without realizing the massive change to this plugin and everything broke horribly. You might have warned us. The calendar view and list view pages no longer display. After reading this forum and migrating existing events to the v2 format things were no better.
    I had to trash the database and reinstall a backup and delete the plugin and revert to 1.6.5.
    We chose this excellent plugin because it added events into the normal post loop and now it seems that you have abandoned this feature.

    Frustrated irritated and annoyed

    Hi folks,

    We have warned users every way possible. I'm sorry you have had to deal with those challenges. If you browse the forum you will see we have posted code on how to include events back into your loop. =)
