Permalink is not displaying Events

The permalink is set to https://tbgmarketing.com/event/

I am able to display the events just fine with the shortcodes (when using Visual Composer the shortcode category needs to be enclosed in “category” or the shortcode will not work). When I click the button to view the details of the event, the Event does not show on the permalink. There is no page “event” for my site – to I need to create when or is that simply part of the permalink.

Listing of Events: https://tbgmarketing.com/workshops-webinars-events/

Event View: https://tbgmarketing.com/event/wordpress-workshop/

Hi there,

This is happening because you have the event slug set to ‘event’, which is the same as the singular slug.

If you go to Event Espresso -> Events -> Templates

Change the ‘Event Slug’ to ‘events’ (or anything other than ‘event’) and save the settings.

Navigate to Dashboard -> Permalinks to refresh your permalinks and then test
https://tbgmarketing.com/events/wordpress-workshop/

You event details should now load.

It happens with events too – it’s why we changed it to event. We thought changing it to event would allow us to see the single detailed view of the Event. I checked to see if we have a page or post called events and we do not. Regardless of the slug, it still does not show the detail. I changed the slug back to events and refreshed the permalinks by saving them again and still does not show. I cleared browser cache and it does not show. I also tried a clear browser in Safari and the Detail Event does not show.

I tried refreshing Permalinks – I wonder if WordPress does not refresh the links if you do not actually change the permalink settings. Hmm?? That could be it but I really don’t want to impact all of my content that way.

Thanks for your help here… we had this EXACT same problem with The Events Calendar (that plus their plugin had an error that bled warnings every 5 seconds and I could never get them to fix it).

Just visiting the permalink setting page without doing anything else will flush your permalinks.

It almost sounds like something else is using the events slug and overriding the output, but looking at the html markup on the link above it correctly shows the EE post type.

Can you do a quick test using the Theme Test Drive plugin, activate a default theme (twentyseventeen for example) and view the event then, does it show the content?

(Theme test drive allows you to switch to another theme as an admin and not affect your site visitors)

Interesting – it appears to be the theme blocking the slug. Any thoughts on how to correct that? Good call – you’ve done this before I think!!!!

The theme may have a setting that lets you change its events slug, or you could use a completely different slug for Event Espresso’s slug option, for example setting the slug option to upcoming-events would avoid the conflict.

No bueno… there is something in the theme preventing this. Have to ask the designer.

If the theme designer can’t fix the theme, we’ll be more than happy to take a look at the theme’s code and point you in the right direction if there’s a way we can download the theme.
