Set 'Add/Update post for this event?' to NO by default

I’m referring to the same issue here

I need to make this go to default, if not it will just delete my post content whenever I change other details in the event. I find even I sometimes forget to change the setting, let alone my clients. So I really need to make sure this is fixed at NO before I hand the website over to them.

Help ASAP please! Thanks.

If you open:


Go to line 20.

You’ll see:

$create_post = ‘Y’; //If a post was created previously, default to yes on the update post.

Change ‘Y’ to ‘N’

Whats happening here is ee checks a post was created previous, if it has Update should default to Y (yes), else default to N (no).

We’ve just changed it so either way it will always return N.

Remember, as this is a customization it will revert back to the normal way after each update. So you’ll need to do this each time ee is updated.

hey guys,
We are actually adding a filter in 3.1.34, the next version to come out, on line 24 of that file:

$create_post = apply_filters('filter_hook_espresso_defalt_update_post_option', $create_post);

So if you want to, you can add that line into your current version, create a function in custom files, or your own plugin, that returns a value of “N” and add it to that filter. That way you won’t have to worry about having to reedit that file every time a new updated version comes out.
