  • The plugin will not activate. Can you help?
    Please first check that you have Event Espresso version 4.9.7 or greater installed.
  • The Select Event step returns “The results could not be loaded.”
    • If you have the iThemes Security plugin, you can go to
      Security > Settings > System Tweaks Configure Settings
      then uncheck the box next to Filter Long URL Strings, then click Save Settings.
    • The WordPress REST API must be enabled in order to use the Attendee Mover. Older versions of WordPress did not include the REST API. So if you have an older version of WordPress you can update to its latest version. Also, the REST API can be deactivated with plugins. If you’re unsure if the REST API is activated on your website, you can use the Health Check plugin to verify.
