🐞 YouTube Live Virtual Events integration not working on EU-hosted sites

Status: under analysis

Description:

When a YouTube Live Stream is embedded with Virtual Events on a website that is hosted in Europe, when it goes live, the event still shows β€œThe Live Stream is Offline.” message instead of the video.

This is caused by YouTube redirecting Virtual Events’ request to a cookie consent form which is currently not displayed in the UI, therefore blocking the stream from being displayed.

Workarounds:

Not great but: manually add a link into the content of the event that points to the YouTube channel or LiveStream

ℹ️ YouTube Live Stream not publicly listed embed not working

Status: expected behavior

Description:

Some users have reported no longer being able to embed YouTube live streams with chat turned on. After investigation, it appears that only live streams that are not listed publicly will not work, which is expected behavior.

Workarounds:

Make the live stream public.

βœ… 404 errors on Single Events

Status: fixed in The Events Calendar 6.0.6

Description:

Clicking on an event link in a calendar view or widget triggers a 404 page not found error.

Important: this issue is addressed in The Events Calendar 6.0.6. To fix the issue on your site, you need to update and then trigger a save on each event that is 404ing. To do this, open the event and change the start date or start time, and hit Update. Then change the date or time back (so that it’s correct again), and save. This sequence will prompt the system to generate the data necessary to correct the 404. If it’s a recurring event, be sure to choose the All events option for each save.

We believe updating to the new versions and re-saving events will fix the 404 issues for most customers. If you are still seeing the problem, please contact support and include a fresh copy of your site’s debug log. We’ve added new logging tools that will help us troubleshoot the remaining issues.

Workarounds:

  1. Try flushing the permalinks and other solutions suggested here
  2. Try temporarily deactivating your TEC plugins and reactivating them
  3. Check your PHP version, WordPress suggests at least version 7.4. Ask your web host for help.
  4. Have you completed migrating to the new data system?
  5. If you have installed an extension to fix 404 error messages:
    • Deactivate the extension
    • Flush your permalinks
    • Empty the site’s cache

If none of these workarounds work, please contact support.

βœ… 404 errors on recurring events

Status: Fixed in Events Calendar Pro 6.0.2.1

Description:

When viewing a recurring event on the front end, a 404 error occurs. Flushing permalinks does not solve the issue.

Workaround:

We’ve created a workaround plugin that you can install on your site to address the 404s. You can download the plugin here: https://d.pr/f/FV2fqs.

Install and activate that on your site, clear your permalinks, and you should be able to view recurring events on the front end again. Once we release the full solution in our next version, you’ll be able to deactivate and delete this plugin.

βœ… Events revert to current or swapped date after save (classic editor)

Status: fixed in Events Calendar Pro 6.0.6

Description:

Some users are experiencing an issue where editing an event in the classic editor causes the event to either revert to the current date and time OR swap the month and day of the event date (e.g. 1/5/2023 becomes 5/1/2023).

This only occurs if:

  • Events Calendar Pro is active
  • You are using the classic editor for events
  • Your Compact Date Format is set to something other than the default under Events > Settings > Display

Workarounds:

  • Go to Events > Settings > Display and change the Compact Date Format to the default option (2022-01-15).
  • Use the block editor for editing events.

βœ… Subscribing to a single event with iCalendar subscribes user to all events

Status: fixed in The Events Calendar 6.0.6

Description:

When a user clicks the Subscribe or Export options on a single event page, the export or subscription is for all events on the calendar instead of just that one event.

Workaround:

  1. Install the free Code Snippets plugin.
  2. In your dashboard, go to Snippets > Add New and copy this snippet.
  3. Save and Activate the snippet.

Once we release a permanent fix for this issue, you’ll want to remove the snippet.

🐞 Partial Support for FSE Themes

Status: Scope in Progress

Description:

FSE themes are now alive and kicking. In fact, starting with WordPress 6.0, the default theme, TwentyTwentyTwo, is an FSE theme.

For now, FSE themes don’t break with The Events Calendar, but there is still significant work to be done on our end to provide support for basic things such as:

  • Template overrides
  • Programmatical customizations
  • Legacy Widget support
  • Etc…

As you can imagine, we are not happy about this and we’ll spend the rest of the year gradually improving FSE support. Hang in there!

βœ… WordPress Dashboard displays 500 error.

Status: Fixed in Event Tickets 5.5.11.1

Description:

We have introduced some code to display the number of attendees for websites in the WordPress dashboard, on the “At a glance” widget. This is creating performance problems for sites where there are many attendees, potentially consuming the resources of the server and triggering a 500 error.

Workaround:

Add the following code to the bottom of the event-tickets.php file (in wp-content/plugins/event-tickets/)

add_action( 'plugins_loaded', function () {
tribe_singleton( TEC\Tickets\Admin\Glance_Items::class, TEC\Tickets\Admin\Glance_Items::class);
}, 1 );

add_action( 'admin_init', function() {
remove_filter( 'dashboard_glance_items', [ tribe( TEC\Tickets\Admin\Glance_Items::class ), 'custom_glance_items_attendees' ], 10 );

βœ… Incomplete CSV Events imports, missing: events, category assignment, featured image, etc.

Status: Fixed in The Events Calendar 5.16.2

Description:

For some users, when trying to import an Events CSV file, all seems to be working fine.

But, upon closer examination, there appears to be missing information from the import: events, category assignment, featured image, etc. Exactly as though some records were skipped.

The issue seems to be related to the configuration of the webserver for some users. There were some reports of CSV imports taking a really long time and even timing out.

Workaround:

In most cases, staying on the screen (as opposed to navigating away, fixes the issue). Some users have also reported fixing the issue by running the same import several times until completion. Others were not so lucky.

βœ… Google Search Console error: Missing field eventStatus

Status: Apply a snippet

Description:

Google has recently leveled up in regards to the information it is expecting from an event. This is why we added an event status option dropdown as of The Events Calendar 5.11.0.

This setting will keep Google happy with any new event that you create.

Alas, the event status option is not retroactive. In other words, if you created events before the feature was released, they will not have a defined event status.

Of course, you could manually go into each event and define an event status. But that is pretty time-consuming. We have a better solution πŸ™‚

Workaround:

Use the following snippet to add the eventScheduled event status to all events where an event status was not added.
