Continuous Problem With Extra Entries

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?

Hi Jason,

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:
“2018-01-20”. So if you go to set an event date and the month is formatted as a single digit, then that’s a good indication there’s another script on the page that’s overriding the date format set by Event Espresso 3.

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:
