Maintenance Release for the Week of 13 November 2017

Welcome to Maintenance Release number 22 of 2017! We have some updates and fixes to our plugin suite for you. If this is your first time getting an update from us remember Maintenance Releases are smaller updates between major releases that are mostly comprised of bug Fixes, tweaks, and small but meaningful improvements. We always recommend using a staging site to test these changes before updating on a live site.

To see all of the changes included this Maintenance Release, check out the changelogs for all updated plugins below:

The Events Calendar 4.6.5

  • Fix – Improved legacy URL redirect logic to prevent unwanted redirects (our thanks to wesleyanhq and Adam Schwartz for highlighting this issue)
  • Fix – Modified tribe_get_template_part() to remove potential for multiple templates to be rendered in a single call
  • Fix – Fixed an issue where Event Aggregator scheduled imports might remain stuck in pending status
  • Fix – Removed code which was automatically populating various address fields with default values when creating a new venue from within the event editor
  • Fix – Resolved some issues with the “Show Map” and “Show Map Link” options in CSV files not being reliably respected on import (props @joappf and many others for highlighting this issue)
  • Fix – Added opportunities to override edit linked post links
  • Fix – Fixed a bug where only some parts of event featured images were clickable in List Views (thanks @mattemkadia for highlighting this issue)
  • Fix – Fixed the broken ‘Learn more’ URL received after an unsuccessful “Other URL” import preview
  • Fix – Fixed issue in list view navigation with backwards previous/next classes (thanks @secondtoughest)
  • Fix – Fixed an issue where venues and organizers would not be correctly assigned to events in CSV imports with import statuses other than “Publish”
  • Tweak – Remove net import scheduled notes for on demand imports
  • Tweak – Allow for non-Latin characters to be used as the Events URL slug and the Single Event URL slug (thanks @daviddweb for originally reporting this)
  • Tweak – Fixed some layout issues that would emerge with “Events URL Slug” option when “Plain” permalinks were enabled
  • Tweak – Tweaked some language in Event Aggregator’s metabox on individual edit-event screens to reduce confusion around the impact of the Update Authority on CSV imports
  • Tweak – Fix PHP 7.1 compatibility with Event Aggregator (props @BJP NEALE)
  • Tweak – Added new filter: tribe_events_force_filtered_ical_link. This makes the “Export Events” URL more easily modifiable (thanks to @tdudley07 for highlighting this issue)
  • Tweak – Made the “End of Day Cutoff” option better accommodate 24-hour and other time formats (thanks @festivalgeneral for bringing this issue to our attention!)
  • Tweak – Made the options presented by the timezone selector filterable (via the newly added tribe_events_timezone_choice hook – our thanks to National University’s Marketing Department for this idea)
  • Tweak – Improved integration with Twenty Seventeen – main events page now uses full height header when set to front page (thanks @uncovery for pointing this out)
  • Tweak – Ensured REST API taxonomy endpoints are only registered in WordPress versions 4.7 and higher (thanks @dnaber-de for reporting this)
  • Language – 1 new strings added, 132 updated, 0 fuzzied, and 1 obsoleted

Tribe Common 4.7.1

  • Fix – Added support for translatable placeholder text when dropdown selectors are waiting on results being returned via ajax
  • Fix – Implemented an additional file permissions check within default error logger (our thanks to Oscar for highlighting this)
  • Tweak – Added new tribe_is_site_using_24_hour_time() function to easily check if the site is using a 24-hour time format
  • Tweak – Ensure the “Debug Mode” helper text in the Events Settings screen displays all of the time (it previously would vanish with certain permalinks settings)
  • Tweak – Allow for non-Latin characters to be used as the Events URL slug and the Single Event URL slug (thanks @daviddweb for originally reporting this)
  • Tweak – Removed restrictions imposed on taxonomy queries by Tribe__Ajax__Dropdown (our thanks to Ian in the forums for flagging this issue)
  • Tweak – Fixed the definition of Tribe__Rewrite::get_bases() to address some PHP strict notices its previous definition triggered
  • Language – 0 new strings added, 16 updated, 1 fuzzied, and 0 obsoleted

Community Events 4.5.7

  • Fix – Improved translatability of the taxonomy dropdowns (“Searching…” placeholder can now be translated – our thanks to Oliver for flagging this!)
  • Fix – Changed the attendee and other links exposed to event owners so that they stay in the frontend environment where possible (our thanks to Gurdeep Sandhu for flagging this problem)
  • Fix – Added logic to prevent an event end time earlier than the event start time being set
  • Fix – Enhanced ease of marking nested fields as required (our thanks to dsb cloud services GmbH & Co. KG for flagging the need for this)
  • Fix – Ensure the correct wording is used for the Edit Venue and Edit Organizer pages
  • Tweak – The options presented by the timezone picker are now filterable (when used alongside an up-to-date version of The Events Calendar)
