Event List Broken in Upgrade Process

I’m currently using this shortcode to list all events in a category on a page: [EVENT_LIST category_identifier=category_name_here]

But, when I upgrade to the lastest EE version, it doesn’t show the events at all.

Is there a new shortcode for the most recent version that I should be using instead of the one above?

What version were you upgrading from? Have you made customizations to the template files?

No changes to the template

Check your /wp-content/uploads/espresso/templates folder just in case. Nothing should have changed that would break the EVENT_LIST shortcode or change how it works. (That said, there’s also a different category shortcode you could use: [EVENT_ESPRESSO_CATEGORY event_category_id="your_category_indentifier"])

Can I upload my event_list.php and event_list_display.php file for you to check out? I don’t believe anything was changed, but I don’t have a “fresh” copy, either… Can you point me toward a “fresh” copy so I can compare?

You can download a fresh copy of Event Espresso from your account page.

Issues after upgrading are usually caused by having out of date template files (from a previous version) in the /wp-content/uploads/espresso/templates/ directory. If you have modified templates in there, they need to be updated to the new template files included with the current version of the plugin. If you haven’t made any modifications to the templates, these can be removed. If you are not sure if there were modifications made to these files, back these up or rename that folder just in case.
