HELP! 404 instead of registration pages – client unable to accept payments

Hi there –

Dealing with an issue this morning. Last night a client decided to accidentally update ALL plugins and then delete them in an attempt at fixing the damage.. I had a backup of all core files made Nov30 so it was not the end of the world.

However, something that occurred as part of the update/delete is now causing Event Espresso to malfunction. We cannot reach the registration page (/event-registration/) but all other plugins and widgets are functioning normally.

URL to calendar:
URL to one event page:
URL in other format for event page:

I cannot for the life of me figure out what’s going on. Anyone else encountered this issue before? I will dump plugins and configuration settings shortly.

Willing to troubleshoot if someone can help. I suspect there is a database value that needs touching.

Hi Dustin,

Have you flushed permalinks? (Go to Settings -> Permalinks. Make no changes and hit save)

If you go to Dashboard -> Pages.

Can you find the ‘Event Registration’ page?
If so what shortcode is within that page?

Hi Tony,

Thanks for the response. Unfortunately the permalink flush did not resolve the issue. I will try testing the Event Registration short code on a different page.

As a side note, do those links look “correct”? That page appears to accept the ee=201 variable and uses that to load the event-specific information. If you have any more ideas please send them along.

Hi Dustan,

Could you run a search in WordPress Pages for the following shortcode:


Do multiple pages show up or just a single one?

Event Espresso 3 does not use pretty permalinks for single event pages so they will appear like so:
