Hi...a couple questions.
Updated recurring events today, extending them through December 2018. Some of them are weekly.
Had the following issues:
1. Redirected to a 404 page when I hit update. Did a reload, and still displayed the 404. Then browser back. Nothing saved. Hit reload, nothing saved.
2. Disabled all plugins except Events Manager...hit update.....timed out, hit reload, still timed out, then browser back button to the edit screen..nothing saved.
-BUT...if I hit reload after browser back, the records updated in most cases (monthly events 55 records) , but for weekly events (155+ records) , it was hit or miss. Also ended up after retrying for the weekly events with 2-3 duplicates of each day.
3. When removing duplicates manually in admin, timed out. Went to mysql....and deleted the records from the em_event db...but then discovered that the records are also occurring in the regular posts db...
However, after deleting the records in the em_events db and then reactivating the recurring event record...it cleaned up the duplicates.
All very strange. Some of the events were created two years ago - so curious if these issues could be due to the records being created in a much earlier version of the plugin?
Also, could these time-out issues be due to the massive quantity of posts created for a weekly event ranging three years? Got my wp memory set at ('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '512M') and ('WP_MAX_MEMORY_LIMIT', '512M').
Finally, there is a view in admin for recurring events, but what about a view for non-recurring events? It's almost impossible to sift through 3000 plus events to find ones that are not recurring.
I did find a solution....I use Admin Columns Pro,an excellent plugin, and added a column for the custom field _recurrence_id, and made it sortable....and this allows for a descending sort from no records to the largest record number, putting all the events that are non-recurring at the top of the sort (or bottom if ur perverse<G>)
Getting ready to open event listings to members, and I am very concerned about Event Managers capability to handle a large quantity of event records....I'm looking at 50-100k event records.
