The Events Calendar
[resolved] Thousands of wrong 404s generated (22 posts)

    I am enjoying your Events Calendar, however I have noticed a major problem with it. It is creating a massive amount of 404s that I am seeing in Google Webmaster Tools.

    E.g.

    http://cloudtimes.org/events/category/europe/1939-02
    which links to:
    http://cloudtimes.org/events/category/europe/1939-02/URL

    -----

    I tried entering the some suggested code (https://gist.github.com/2763669 and https://gist.github.com/1964698) by Joey and Paul, however no success. That caused an issue as the function was already declared in the theme, so I just removed the part that declared the function and left the code that calls the function, but then that results in this error:

    Warning: call_user_func_array() [function.call-user-func-array]: First argument is expected to be a valid callback, 'tribe_dont_index_day_views' was given in /home/content/m/t/a/mtantow7/html/wp-includes/plugin.php on line 40

    (results from)

    if (class_exists( 'TribeEvents' ) )
    add_action('wp_head','tribe_dont_index_day_views');

    in functions.php

    Can you help?

    Hi mtantow,

    The first Gist is what you should be using and I'm not quite sure why it's not working. Can you post your full functions.php to Gist or Pastebin so I can see what you've got?

    Thanks,
    Jonah

    Thanks, Jonah for coming back on this. The functions.php file is just a file that includes another file that includes about 20 other files. Can you indicate what you're looking for, so I can try to extract that.

    Sure, I just want to see the file where you've placed the code and make sure there's nothing off with it.

    Thanks,
    Jonah

    Hi Jonah, I have been watching Google Webmaster for a while. The initial problem seems to be fixed, however there is a similar 404 error now with tags.

    These 404 errors seem to be fixed:
    events/category/usa/1793-02/URL
    events/category/usa/1792-11/URL

    However now these appear and cause a 404:
    events/tag/Government/
    events/tag/mobilecloud/

    I assume they come from the Events plugin.

    And another type of 404s where I am not sure if they are caused by the Events plugin:
    ?tribe_organizer=ubm-techweb-3/feed/
    ?tribe_organizer=keynote/feed/

    Thanks for your help,

    Martin

    Hi there Martin. Thanks for the follow-up here; I'm not sure Jonah saw this, so I've passed it his way directly and asked him to take another look. Stay tuned and thanks for your patience so far.

    Hi Martin,

    I'm not sure myself why this is happening but am checking with one of the other devs to see what we can find. I'll post back here when I know more.

    Cheers,

    Hi Martin,

    Just to confirm because I don't see it mentioned here and I don't remember if we asked you this already, but what version of the plugin are you running?

    - Jonah

    2.0.7

    Hey Martin,

    We're still investigating this. It appears that it could be a conflict with the tag cloud plugin you are using where either our plugin is inadvertently appending /events/ to the URL's of the tags or the tag cloud is not getting URL's properly.

    What plugin are you using for the tag cloud?

    Thanks,
    Jonah

    Hi Jonah, As far as I know I'm not using any plugin for the tag cloud. Just the default WP one. FYI: I've also upgraded to 2.0.8

    I am using The Events Calendar Pro at http://www.dcdrinkup.com and also experiencing this issue with the WordPress Tag Cloud widget. It appears that The Events Calendar is rewriting the URL's in the tag cloud widget to use the "events" slug. Please provide an update on this as it appears that mtantow has been working this one for a while...

    Hey guys. Just wanted to follow-up on this, per my email exchange with Martin and now that we've looked into this further. This did appear to be an issue specific to tag clouds, which could most effectively be resolved by removing tag clouds from the site if you're concerned about the search implications.

    However, that being said, we have fixed this in the code for 2.0.9 (which is coming out over the next month or so). The devs finally figured out what was up and have fixed the issue so it is awaiting deployment in that latest code.

    Thanks again for your patience so far guys. Please know relief is in sight, and feel free to reach out if you need anything more in the interim.

    I have the same issue. I would love to use your plugin, but my site's main navigation is built around tags so this issue is a dealbreaker for me.

    Is it possible to provide us with a patch or will 2.0.9 come out before 19 september? (that's when my site will go live...)

    I've downloaded version 2.0.9 from svn. You fixed it allright!
    Great! Still hope to install the stable version soon, though...

    The tag cloud issue was indeed fixed in 2.0.9 - thank you for confirming as much! Since it appears that the core issue here is resolved, I'm going to mark this thread accordingly...but please let me know if anyone disagrees or has further issues here.

    If not, thanks to all for your support and patience so far. If you are enjoying 2.0.9 we sure would appreciate a vote of "Works" here on the dot-org repo :)
