Events Manager is great plugin. Highly customizable, solid, just works great. I’ve used it for many years.
However, v6.0 introduced many breaking changes for existing installations. Just scan the support forum to see some the issues. I think many installations just went back to a pre-6.0 release. We did.
My biggest disappointment: it appears v6.0 had little or no beta testing for existing installations. If the developer had done just a bit of testing with existing users, they would have realized these significant issues before the release. This version just wasn’t ready. The developer then had to provide update fixes to try to allow existing users to “turn off” the new features/functions/formatting, etc. I suggest a more gradual approach (multiple step releases) would have been better to introduce these changes.
Developers have been mostly silent the last few days. I hope they issue a pinned statement on the support forum on the current status and how they are addressing these issues.
