Release: Hotfix for WP 3.5 bugs in Events Calendar PRO 2.0.10 & Community 1.0.4

As some of you may be aware, there were a couple of bugs that emerged in Community Events & Events Calendar PRO with the release of WordPress 3.5 earlier this week. These issues impacted both the display of the backend events list and your frontend events/community submission form. Once these were reported to us, we got the team together to strategize a fix and figured out the most effective course of action last night.

As of a few minutes ago, hotfixes have been released for Community Events 1.0.4 and Events Calendar PRO 2.0.10 (the core The Events Calendar was not impacted). To get the latest code:

  1. Log into the website with the credentials you used to purchase Events Calendar PRO and/or Community Events.
  2. Navigate to Account Central -> Downloads.
  3. Re-download Events Calendar PRO 2.0.10 and/or Community Events 1.0.4.
  4. Overwrite the old version(s) of Events Calendar PRO and/or Community Events 1.0.4 with the newly-downloaded files.

Keep in mind that the version numbers will not change with the new code — this was a hotfix, rather than a fresh release. It also means that users will not be provided with an update prompt, as this technically is not a new build. Anyone who experienced problems with the 3.5 update on PRO/Community will need to take the steps outlined above to fix the issue.

Thanks to everyone for being diligent in reporting the bugs quickly. If anything else emerges as you continue to use your freshly-updated WordPress 3.5 site, let us know over at the forums and we’ll do our best to get them sorted.
