Event Espresso – – Several new issues

We upgraded to latest version a few days ago.  We are a heavy user with usually about 700-900 registrations monthly.  Here is a recap of issues I noticed with this latest release so far:

Duplicate payments with Paypal Pro transactions.  – This was a huge issue for us 6 months ago (see topic) but was resolved.  We had no issues since fix but since update now have had several.  Must be an issue with this latest update.
Using same computer, 2nd registration has overwritten 1st registration.   Again, like before, we had seen this issue in a previous release but has been resolved….now with this version it is back.
Email Tag:  [payment_url] brings you back to site and results in this error:

Warning: array_merge() [function.array-merge]: Argument #2 is not an array in /event-espresso/gateways/process_payments.php on line 30

I went ahead and made some changes that split the call to paypal pro up into an authorization and then a capture, instead of one call to sale, and added some checks to keep multiple authorizations from happening, even if the user hits the button more than once. I’ll email you the file that I made the changes to. Copy the paypal pro folder from plugins/event-espresso/gateways to uploads/espresso/gateways, and use the file that I’m emailing to you to replace it’s equivalent file in uploads/espresso/gateways/paypal_pro. Then deactivate and reactivate the paypal pro gateway to make sure all the paths stored in the database are updated.

Sidney – thanks for the update.  I will test to make sure it works.  What about the other issues? Any fixes for those?

Hi Troy,

I think the issues you’re reporting are all related to what Sidney’s fixes will address.

This one:

Email Tag: [payment_url] brings you back to site and results in this error:
Warning: array_merge() [function.array-merge]: Argument #2 is not an array in /home/ixoy/public_html/wp-content/plugins/event-espresso/gateways/process_payments.php on line 30

basically happens if the attendee record has been deleted.
