New Event – Question Groups not listed

WP Version Version 3.9.1
EE Version
EE Plugins – Attendee Import, Calendar, Permissions, Social Media

This is a recurring problem which we have not reported before. There are 7 total Question Groups. When the Permissions Add-On is deactivated, only 2 QGroups are listed for Admins to choose from on the New Event page with one of those being the System QGroup. When the Permissions Add-On is activated, only the System QGroup is listed.

We need to allow limited access to Users so the Permissions Add-On is a must.

I don’t understand why all Admins cannot see all QGroups on new events.

Thank you so much for your assistance with this!

Hi Tammy,

Event Espresso pulls the question groups created by the user with id = 0 or 1 by default which is why only 2 question groups show up by default. With the Permissions Add-on active this is altered to only pull questions that match your current User_ID, we can alter both by using something like this:

add_filter('espresso_get_question_groups_for_event_where', 'espresso_get_question_groups_for_event_where_custom', 9);
function espresso_get_question_groups_for_event_where_custom() {

	remove_filter('espresso_get_question_groups_for_event_where', 'espresso_rp_basic_get_question_groups_for_event_where', 10);

	return '';

Within your themes functions.php files or a site specific plugin

That will remove the User_ID check and also set the EE default to display all question groups created by any users.

Awesome. Works like a charm. I’ll ask the other admins to check it as well. Please mark this as resolved/closed.
