βœ… Error when publishing event with the block editor using WordPress 5.7

Fixed in The Events Calendar 5.4.0.2

Description:

When trying to save/publish an event with the block editor it displays the error “Publishing failed. Could not delete meta value from database.”

This happens when:

  • using WordPress 5.7
  • the block editor for events is enabled (Events β†’ Settings β†’ General tab β†’ Activate Block Editor for Events)
  • no organizer is selected

Workaround:

Note, the event likely still saves despite the error message.

βœ… Month view loads empty after update

Fixed in Events Calendar Pro 5.2.1.2

Description:

After updating to The Events Calendar 5.3.0+ and Events Calendar Pro 5.2.0+ and when using the legacy (V1) views, and using the [tribe_events] shortcode to display the month view, the calendar does not show any events. The calendar is populated when paginating to a different month.

Workaround:

Download and install this plugin, which should correct this behavior until a fix is released.

? Icons are duplicated / huge on calendar page

Info: Fixed in Avada 7.2

Description:

In The Events Calendar 5.3.0 we have tweaked our icons. They are now SVG templates instead of background images to speed up loading times and improve customizability.

Some themes use template overrides to adjust the looks of The Events Calendar. These templates might still need to adjust their overrides to make use of the new SVG icons.

Workaround:

  • Downgrade to the previous versions of the plugins
  • Use the following CSS snippet to temporarily disable the new SVG icons
.tribe-events-c-view-selector svg,
.tribe-events-c-top-bar svg,
.tribe-events-c-nav__list svg,
.tribe-events-c-ical svg {
    display: none !important;
}
