Support » Plugin: Very Simple Event List » single event – page not found

    (@denisedesign)


    Hi. I’m not able to get to the single event page from the archive page that I created. I get a 404 Page Not Found when I navigate to the single event page on the site and when I “preview” the event from the admin.

    I did create a single-event.php page (modeled after wordpress’ basic single.php page) in the child theme (active theme) and that hasn’t solved the problem.

    Great plugin, btw! It’s handling an event list with an image and an archive feature for past events, better than anything else I’ve ever found. Excited to get it working fully. Cheers!

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

  • Use the links in the sidebar on that page, to test. I’m using the page listings elsewhere on the live site and needed to edit the settings to remove the links to the single event page since it’s not working. Thanks!

    Hi Denise,

    If you get an 404 please resave the permalink. I’m almost certain this will solve your issue!

    And please don’t list your events on a page with slug “event” because this might cause a conflict with the event pagination.

    Guido

    Hi Guido. Thanks for getting back to me. You’re right! I should have known. This isn’t my first rodeo. 🙂

    Alas, we have a new problem. The event information isn’t displaying at all. Only the navigation displays. Can you take another look?

    I understand that you’re going to use /events/ in a future version, and I will not use it, once I’m through working out the kinks.

    Thanks!

    To clarify, the link to the page is working now, but there’s no content on it except navigation.

    Hi,

    Your event page looks fine over here on my iPad. There’s no pagination currently. And the links to the single event page aren’t activated. This can be done via the settingspage.

    Again, please don’t list your events on a page with slug “event” because this might cause a conflict with the event pagination. Meaning, pagination might not work.

    Guido

    Thanks. The links aren’t active, but I created a sidebar instead to link for testing.

    I’m using the “page” listings on the live site < https://huhinstitute.com/huecenter/ > and until the single event page issues are worked out, I’ve chosen to hide them on the page listings. Use the sidebar to link.

    I changed the slug for the test page. It’s now: https://huhinstitute.com/hue-events/

    When I go to the single page for one of the envets, all I see (in Chrome on a mac) are the regular page header and footer, and a section with <h2 class=”screen-reader-text”>Post navigation</h2> and the navigation links to follow. It’s what I see in the page source, as well. No event content. Example: https://huhinstitute.com/event/the-biodentist-way-our-founders-message/

    Thanks so much for all of your help.

    Hi,

    I notice whole event content isn’t displayed on the single event page. Check my info regarding this on the plugin page:

    It does one thing: it hooks into the the_content() and the_excerpt() function.

    If your theme uses it’s own customized version and you visit one of the pages mentioned above, the event(s) might not be displayed properly or not at all.

    Does your “single” file or custom “single-event” file contain a the_content() function?

    Guido

    I’m using a custom “single-event” which is just a “single” from basic wordpress renamed. And there is no the_content…. I’m sure this comes up often. If you can direct me to a link or thread where this issue is addressed, that would be great!

    PS – I’m not really a coder, but I can follow directions.

    I’ve tried a few bits of code that I’ve found online and now it’s really broken. :/ Is anything special required, or is there a standard single-event.php page that is available for download?

    Thanks for all of this help!

    Hi Denise,

    Currently I’m away and only have an iPad so cannot take a look at your source code.

    Does it display the event content again when you remove the “single-event” file, so the native “single” file is being used? If not, does your “single” file contain a the_content() function?

    If not, which theme do you use? Can I find it on wp dot org?

    Guido

    Awesome troubleshooting from an ipad. Yes, it works now that I removed my single-event.php file altogether. That was simpler than I was making it out to be.

    I have some work to do on the look of it, but I’m hoping that I can do most of that with CSS.

    Thanks so much for building this plugin. It definitely fills a hole in what’s out there.

    Best,
    Denise

    Hi Denise,

    Great to hear it works properly again.
    When using a custom “single-event” file I recommend using a duplicate of the “single” file, and customize that to your needs. But in case you only have CSS related changes, just use the native “single” file (so don’t create a custom file).
