The Events Calendar 5.1.6


Maintenance Release

The Events Calendar 5.1.6 features the addition of some updates for our Events Calendar Pro users, as well as improvements to CSV import functionality.

This is a minor release that should be smooth sailing when updating. That said, it’s always a good idea to backup your site and test changes in a development environment before installing this on your live site, as you would with any other WordPress update.

✨ New

New features included in this release

  • We now include Virtual Events information when exporting events via the Export Events and iCal and Google Calendar export buttons.
  • We have made it easier for our users to manage venues and organizers through CSV imports.
  • We have added the ability to use default values from settings for venue imports via the tribe_events_importer_set_default_venue_import_values filter.
  • We have replaced the placeholders in our template files with appropriate links to be the actual URLs for the articles.

✅ Fixed

Bugs that were squashed in this release

  • We resolved an issue that was causing SQL errors that would show up when creating custom Event queries in theme builders.
  • We have fixed SQL errors that would show up when running custom Event queries in plugins.
  • We also fixed SQL errors that would prevent customers from being able to select tickets assigned to Events in some instances.
  • We now allow our CSV import users to “Overwrite my event with any changes from the original source.” under Events > Settings > Imports.
  • When re-importing a CSV, we have enabled excerpt and description fields to be cleared of their values.
  • We have resolved an issue so that on re-import, we only overwrite items that have been mapped.
