Problem with registering for events

Many of my pages won’t let people actually register for an event. Here’s an example….

I’ve created an Upcoming Events page ( which is using the shortcode [EVENT_ESPRESSO_CATEGORY event_category_id=”special-events”] to give a list of the events in the “Special Events” category.

However, if someone clicks on a Register Now link for an event on this page, (e.g. the Legends of the Turf 2012 event, with the URL of the Turf 2012) they are actually taken to the page,, which is a list of all events, instead of the registration page for this one event.

And the Register Now links on this page also don’t work.

I would have expected the links on both of these pages to have taken people to the registration page for the event, i.e.

The links on the Event Calendar page take people to the right place.

Obviously I have something setup incorrectly. Can anyone please help me?

It seems this problem was introduced because I switched to using the Recurring Event template files.

I think I’ve found the problem. The Recurring Event template files build a link with the URL fragment e_reg=register.

Changing this in the event_list.php and event_list_display.php files to use the fragment regevent_action=register instead, seems to have fixed the problem.
