Troubleshooting

The plugin will not install. Can you help?
Are you running the latest version of Event Espresso 3?

I’ve added the [EVENT_CUSTOM_VIEW] to my default event listing page and now event registration is not working.
[ESPRESSO_EVENTS] is responsible for registration checkout. It should not be replaced by any other shortcodes and it should only be used once on a site.
Restore the [ESPRESSO_EVENTS] shortcode on the events registration page (/event-registration/) and save changes. Then create a new WordPress page and add [EVENT_CUSTOM_VIEW] to it and save changes.
