Support » Plugin: Events Made Easy » Unknown column 'use_2co' in 'field list'

  • Resolved jzahlaway


    When I try to edit any of my events, changes are not saved, and I am getting multiple instances of this type of error message:

    WordPress database error: [Unknown column 'use_2co' in 'field list']

    I’m using the latest iteration of the plugin (1.0.18) and I have deactivated and reactivated the plugin. I also have deleted and reinstalled the plugin, deactivated all other plugins, and activated the default theme. No joy. Please advise. Thanks.

    If you reinstalled and you still have this error, then there’s a DB problem preventing the creation. The best thing to do here:
    – activate the plugin
    – select the option “Delete all EME data when upgrading or deactivating?”
    – deactivate the plugin
    – activate the plugin again

    This isn’t a viable option. There’s a voluminous amount of data that would be lost. Is there a way to export the existing data and then import after a “Delete all” is executed?

    Or can I just manually create the missing field in the MySQL DB?

    Yes you can do it manually:

    alter table XXXX add use_2co bool DEFAULT 0;

    XXX is the name of the events table, by default: wp_eme_events

    Did that. Edited an event. Now I’m getting this:

    WordPress database error: [Unknown column 'use_webmoney' in 'field list']

    Also: The field(s) that I’m adding: Should they be specified as NULL or NOT NULL?

    Disregard; I rolled back to a backup version of the DB, deactivated and reactivated the plugin & it works now.

    Thanks for the assistance.

    Well yes, after the use_2co field, other database fields have been added. But apparently after the rollback the database fields were successfully added, so maybe some hickup there? Your DB logs might provide a clue.
