  • Hi there,

    As highlighted in a closed thread (with no resolution) few months ago, after updating to UM 2.xx there is a redirect loop on sites using Events Manager.

    There was no such issue prior to the UM update.

    Is there any chance a solution for this can be found?

    The response of both the above plugin developers to this issue is extremely disappointing choosing to ignore and/or shift blame to one another as opposed to actually even showing the slightest willingness to find a solution. Shows how much they care for users and developers considering these for production sites should be mindful of this.

    For the users struggling with getting their sites working after updating to UM2.0, here is a solution I can offer to get things going temporarily hopefully until this gets resolved:

    – In UM settings, ensure you uncheck ‘Pages’ under access. With this you will forgo the ability to restrict access to pages individually. However this will solve the redirection loop.
    – With UM2.0 you can restrict access to categories and those access restrictions will flow on to any posts or pages you assign to them. WP doesn’t have categories for pages so you will need to solve this first.
    – Now install a good plugin which lets you assign categories/tags to pages.
    – Create a category for each access level you want to have.
    – Add the relevant pages you want to restrict to the right categories. In other places you can use the shortcodes (which will also need to be updated with the prefix “um_” since the developer didnot care to include that in the auto-update if you are updating to UM2).

    Hope this works for you as it works for me.
