Supplied Event Links Going To 404

Using version

While linking to events in new posts the generated event links are going to 404 page. I have tried linking to all 3, shortcode, short URL, full URL. These were working, first the links went to 404 on Firefox and were working fine on Chrome, now they go to 404 on every browser.

I have no additional plugins installed.

Here is what I have tried:
I tried installing the calendar widget, the links in the widget go to a 404.
I tried to create a new event page, links went to 404.
I verified the event is set to public.

Am I missing something here, or are there additional things I need to check? I have searched the forums, tried a few supposed fixes but still 404’s to all event pages I have created, seems like something is conflicting but I have no additional plugins installed, I removed the calendar widget.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Are the pages published? Have you tried re-saving WordPress Permalink settings?

Seth – thanks for the reply.

I’m using those links on a post, not a page, that should be ok, right? I did verify the posts are published. I also re-saved the permalink settings in WP, tried new permalink settings and nothing worked, still going to 404. Event if I take the generated full URL and and place it in a new browser tab it goes to a 404.

Check the page with the [ESPRESSO_EVENTS] shortcode. Make sure it’s published and the ‘main registration’ page is set to this page.

Ahhh, I see, that fixed it. What I did was trash all of the auto generated pages that the plugin creates when its installed and activated. I do not have a use for them on my sidebar, is there any way I can hide them and have the event links still work? Maybe I can do it with CSS. Also, do I need to have the rest of the pages present and not in the trash (Registration Cancelled, Thank You, Transactions)?

Yes, these pages must be published for Event Espresso to work. The exclude pages plugin is one way to exclude pages from the navigation, and if the theme supports the built-in WP menu manager, you can remove pages from the navigation as well.
