Problem with Reoccurring events

I can’t seem to find the Reoccurring events section. I’ve read through the direction and it seems I should find it in the event editor. Can you direct me further?

I see:
Event Date Time
Event Pricing
Additional Event information
Email confirmation
Create post

On the side bar I have:
Quick Overview
Event options
Custom Tickets
Mail CHimp
Event Category
Promotions
Event Questions
Groupon

That’s it! Where should I be looking?!

Hi Tamara,

Have you installed the Recurring Events Manager add-on?

It is a normal plugin so can be installed as such. This guide is for Event Espresso itself, but the process is the same.

yes Tony! It says the plugin is activated. I have tried deactivating and re-activating. Should I try deleting it and re-installing?

Is this an event you have already created or are you creating a new one?

hmm- after your question i see the option when creating a new event. any way I can make it apply to saved events so i don’t have to create them all over again?

Since recurring events are created a slightly different way under the hood, it can only be applied to events when they are created. As far as I know, it cannot be applied to existing events. The best that I can advise is to open the existing event in one tab or window, and the new event editor in another tab or window to make copying the information easier.
Edit:
After some experimentation, it looks like you may be able to convert an event with some direct database manipulation. I would recommend backing up your database first, as I have not heard of this being tried before. If you look at the event in phpMyAdmin, find the field called ‘recurrence_id’ and change it to a non-zero number. Be careful that the number that you change it to is not already assigned to any other events.
Edit again:
It looks like that might not work after all, because it needs a corresponding entry in the wp_events_recurrence table. If you really want to try it, you could try putting a corresponding entry in that table manually. It has the fields

recurrence_id	recurrence_start_date	recurrence_event_end_date	recurrence_end_date	recurrence_regis_start_date	recurrence_regis_end_date	recurrence_frequency	recurrence_interval	recurrence_weekday	recurrence_type	recurrence_repeat_by	recurrence_regis_date_increment	recurrence_manual_dates	recurrence_visibility

You could look at the recurrence editor in the new event editor to try to match up what those values should be, or create a new recurring event to see get a set of values.

Thanks Sidney. That’s WAY above my level of technical abilities! I’ll just copy and paste! 🙂
