Support » Plugin: The Events Calendar » ?tribe_venue, etc., creating unwanted pages using wrong page template on my site

  • Resolved WaitWhereAmI


    Hello all,

    I have the events calendar setup to display the calendar and events on a full width page template on my site. However, by following my site’s url with /”?tribe_organizer”, “?tribe_events”, “?tribe_venue”, or the name of any of the organizers… it jumps to pages that seem to be using my blog template. It appears that organizers are showing up as posts if I enter part of their name into the address bar, e.g. just typing “” will take me to a post “”.

    Any thoughts on how to prevent this altogether, or if not make sure these pages use the same full width template?

    Thank you.

    Hey there WaitWhereAmI. Sorry for the inconvenience; tell me, does this also occur when you enable permalinks (a structure like /%postname%/)? There are quite a few issues where the plugin chokes without pretty permalinks enabled and my guess is that this is one of those situations.

    Let me know if you’re in a position to give that a go.

    Hi roblagataa,

    Thanks for getting back. I do have my permalink settings set to “Post name”, which I believe is the same as /%postname%/.

    I just disabled my plugins to see if that fixed anything, apparently not. Any other ideas what this might be?

    I don’t know if this helps but i’ll clarify my issue:

    It seems that /?tribe_events, /?tribe_organizer, and /?tribe_venue are all their own pages using my post template. Any organizers or venues I enter into an event’s details page are also showing up as posts.

    (e.g. is its own post that people can view if they just happen to type “” in the address bar.)

    How can I prevent this?

    Thank you

    Sorry to post another follow up, but I’m not sure this is your plugins fault.

    “?taxonomy=” is also showing up as its own page using the Main Index Template (index.php) instead of my page templates, with or without your plugin activated.

    Is it normal for a page like this to show up if you type “” in the address bar?

    Hey there WaitWhereAmI. I apologize that your notes here slipped through the cracks; it looks like you made some progress on getting this resolved. Are you still having issues?

    Regarding your last question…I have never seen that behavior and am not finding it on my local install.

    Hi roblagataa,

    Thanks for following up. I first discovered the problem because of posts your plugin was generating, but i’m pretty sure your plugin isn’t causing that behavior in the first place. I took the issue to the main wordpress troubleshooting forum but didn’t have much luck. For now i just put a bandaid on the problem by replacing index.php and single.php with copies of my 404 template so that people get a 404 message when they stumble upon urls like /?tribe_organizer=TED, and I did some 301 redirects for urls like “/?tribe_organizer=” and “/?taxonomy=”.

    I noticed that some other wordpress sites do this too, and almost all of the ones using my same theme do. I’m wondering if its just normal behavior that typing urls like that will generate posts or take people to my posts page. It’s just inconvenient for me because I wanted my blog (index.php) to be completely inaccessible and for any weird posts not to be generated using single.php.

    If that is normal and i’m just clueless let me know, either way thank you for your help.

    My guess is that this is the normal behavior; I’m not a dev myself but if you’re seeing it consistently I’d wager it’s a WP best practices issue.

    Apologies I couldn’t offer up more here. If you have questions or need me to look further, please let me know.
