I have had problems in the past with EE3 creating additional start times, ticket prices, and preselecting categories. I’ve usually been able to fix this by deleting the entries with ID=0 from phpMyAdmin.
However, this time I can’t find any entries with ID=0. Additionally, the last time I got help with this I was told it wouldn’t keep recurring but it’s happened several times since then.
Also, when I search for events in my event dashboard, old events are occasionally getting pulled up as currently being active/ongoing even though they are done.
Could you please direct me on how to fix these issues?
I was able to get the additional entries deleted by searching for event_id = 0 instead of just id=0 in the phpadmin.
I also figured out how to get the old events from showing in the current feed. If the date has a single digit for the month it does not go away. So, ” 2018-1-20 ” as the event end date will not ever leave the feed but ” 2018-01-20 ” will. Just wanted to post in case anyone else has the same issue.
Still curious though, how can I stop the added entries from occurring?
The key is make sure you’re using the current version of Event Espresso 3, and it sounds like there’s at least one plugin/theme conflict happening. Normally the calendar date picker will only use this format for dates:
Finally, you can try running this script (install, activate, then deactivate the plugin) and it will remove all occurrences of event_id=0 from the events table and other related tables:
