Add to Cart link not working (4.0 Beta v4.0-beta-3)

I downloaded the new Event Espresso 4.0 Beta v4.0-beta-3 for testing purposes.

I am looking to re-build our site’s functionality step by step as 4.0 improves over time.  When it meets our thresh-hold of functionality, we plan to take it into production.

With that said, I during my testing, I am already unable to create an event.  I would be interested in helping you find bugs and improve this problem.  What information do you need from me?

Hi Brad,

Thanks for taking the time to test 4.0. Was this on a new install (no prior version of Event Espresso installed on the WP site? )

Also, is it the add to cart link that’s not working, or you’re not able to create a new event? The reason I ask is the title of the post mentions the Add to Cart link isn’t working. In the case of the Add to cart link not working, that would be expected since we haven’t released the Multi Event Registration add-on for 4.0 yet, and the 3.x version for Multi Event Registration isn’t compatible with 4.0.

It is a brand new installation of wordpress and event espresso. I’m not able to create a new event (nothing to do with adding to cart).

I just noticed my subject line for this issue was wrong(sorry it was text on my clipboard) feel free to rename this something like (Unable to create event 4.0) or something like that.

Hi Brad,

If there were any errors displayed when you tried to save the event we’d love to know what they were. If you didn’t see any errors when you tried to save the event, you can try turning on wp-debug by editing the wp-config.php file and you can try saving again a look for errors.

Hi Brad, are you receiving any PHP errors ? If not, do you have WP_DEBUG turned on (look in your wp-config.php file)?

Also, at what point are you not able to create a new event ? Does the Add New Event button not work? Or is it the Save button that doesn’t work? Do the events get saved in the admin but don’t show up in the  frontend of the site? The more specific the information you can give us, the more likely it is that we can help. Thanks.

[EDIT]  I should have refreshed the page before responding with the exact same thing that Josh posted! he he

When I click create event -> it takes me to the create event page.

There, it looks like a lot of fields are missing.  The thing I see out of the ordinary is at the bottom right side of the page.

There is a section called “Event Staff/Speakers” with this error in it:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function espresso_personnel_cb() in/home4/megacit2/public_html/test/testamericanlegacytours/wp-content/plugins/event-espresso-core-pr/includes/core/admin/events/Events_Admin_Page.core.phpon line 2211

UPDATE: in General Settings -> Admin Options

If I turn “Use the Staff Manager?” to “No” it seems to fix the problem.

I’m guessing there is a problem using Staff Manager at the moment.

Hope this helps.

Hi Brad,

I checked with the dev team on this and the Staff manager functionality hasn’t been ported over from 3.x to 4.0 yet. The initial 4.0 stable will not have the staff manager feature, so they’ll make sure that the option there is removed.

Thanks for testing and sending your report!

Also Brad just to help clarify,  4.0 stable will initially just be what is known as the ‘decaffeinated’version of Event Espresso.  In other words, the functionality present will be what will be released in free versions of Event Espresso.  In future iterations we’ll be adding in the features that the users of Event Espresso Pro  are familiar with as a part of the “caffeinated” version.  You’ll start seeing this appear (*hopefully) with versions 4.1+ (which we’re currently working on).  4.1 is the version that will come immediately after 4.0.

Sounds good, I’ll keep pressing on and keep you up-to-date with any problems I run into if that is helpful.

Keep up the good work!
