Event Espresso Calendar Reporting 404

My site is
EE Version 4.9.42.p
EE Calendar Version 3.2.9.p

My EE is working fine, but my calendar page ( is not displaying, instead I get a 404 result.

I have done the following:
– Reset Permalinks
– Deactivated and Reactivated EE, then reset Permalinks
– Resaved the page
– Deleted the page and created it again with shortcode
– Deleted any plugins that seemed like they could be an issue, then recreated the page and saved and reset permalink.

If I change the permalink to plain, then the calendar displays with the current page. Obviously, the plain links are less than optimal, so I would like to get this to work with the post name or a custom url.

Any help would be appreciated.

PS: I have the following active plugins in addition to the EE ones:
Advanced Custom Fields
Comments Disable – AccessPress
Contact Form 7
Facebook by WebLizar
Image Rotator Widget
Simple Google Maps
Social Media and Share Icons
Social Media Auto Publish
Updraft Plus – Backup/Restore
WP Editor Widget

Hi there,

It is happening because you have calendar page as a child of a page with the slug ‘events’.

The output on this page:

Is not from a page called events, it is the espresso_events post archive and is dynamically created. So when you go to:{some-event-title}

It tells WordPress to look within the espresso_events posts for a post with the title {some-event-title}.

That means that now when you go

It looks for an event with the slug ‘event-calendar’, there isn’t one so it returns 404.

To prevent that you can set the calendar page to no longer be a child of ‘events’.
