Event Category Listings Page Not Working After Upgrade

Hello. After the latest EE upgrade our landing pages for individual event categories are no longer displaying events.

https://grandmaraisartcolony.org/event-category/adult-classes/
https://grandmaraisartcolony.org/event-category/youth-classes/

Any ideas? We’ve already combed through all of our theme code, updated theme, flushed cache on our web application firewall, etc.

Hi Nathan,

We’ve received your request for priority support. This might be an issue with the child theme’s custom archive.php template. I’ll see what I can do to troubleshoot locally as the FTP connection will not connect, it’s timing out. I’ll let you know what I find.

OK here’s an update: I loaded up the Enfold theme locally and the event listings displayed on the local site. Then I went in and changed the theme options > Blog Layout (in Blog Layout) to Grid and the same thing happened locally, no events displayed. So I tried changing the Enfold option > Blog Layout to a different layout option and the events display on your site now.

So apparently something in the archive’s Grid Layout loop code is resulting in a database error.

Thanks Josh. Partial answers are better than none. Unfortunately, what we had on that page and need for users is a grid layout. These pages display all classes in Event Espresso that fit a specific category or sub-category but because there are so many the grid is necessary with featured image, event title, date brief description. As I mentioned, the latest EventEspresso release broke the pages. Can you elaborate on what changed in the release that would be causing “the archive’s Grid Layout loop code is resulting in a database error”? Nothing we’ve read in the release notes is sticking out.

Hey Nathan,

May I ask what part of your question did I not answer?

As far as I can tell, the Enfold theme runs a second query when the Grid Layout template is used for the post archive. Specifically, the global WP Query already queried for the events, then the avia_sc_postslider class gets instantiated and runs more queries for events. The database error happens on that second query.

Here’s how you can avoid the database error and get back up and running with that grid template layout:

Open the child theme’s archive.php and just before line 74 add this:

remove_all_filters('posts_where');
remove_all_filters('posts_join');

so the end result will look like this:

remove_all_filters('posts_where');
remove_all_filters('posts_join');
$blog = new avia_post_slider($atts);
$blog->query_entries();
