Category views no longer work after update
Thanks for emailing support.
Starting with version 3.5.3, WPML uses caching to offer awesome performance on multilingual sites.
With that in mind, sometimes this can also cause 404 error messages, especially after one of the following changes:
- Upgrading one of our plugins
- Activating a WPML option such as “Custom post slug”
To resolve this, here is the recommended procedure:
- Disable WPML custom slug translation (see step 6 above)
- Save the settings
- Re-enable WPML custom slug translation
- Save the settings
- Flush permalinks in WordPress under Settings > Permalinks > Save
These steps will flush the WPML cache and avoid 404s errors in the calendar.
If that still does not work, after a quick database backup, try deactivating and reactivating all plugins from the Events Calendar family (the Events Calendar and the Events Calendar Pro).
Thanks for the info.
Please refer to this: https://theeventscalendar.com/knowledgebase/fixing-http-404-errors/
If none of these steps worked, here are a couple of other things to try:
- Head over to Events -> Settings -> General and hit the “Save Changes” button
- Re-save your permalinks.
If none of this works, Try temporarily reverting back to a default WordPress theme such as twenty-seventeen to see if that changes anything.
Let me know how that goes.
I followed all of these steps, but nothing fixed the problem.
– no conflict with themes
– no conflict with any plugin
– 404-fix in functions did not work
– I could not add the other function-snippet for diagnostics ( as there is a syntax error when trying to save
As mentioned above, the 404 issue only appears for the calendar and category pages such as mydomain.com/events/ or mydomain.com/events/category/single-kategorie. Single event pages like mydomain.com/event/event-name load just fine.
What happens if you disable the Event Rocket plugin? I know that was used at one point to help point pages correctly, however, it may not be needed or may be causing a conflict and not sure if you disabled that one when you disabled all the other plugins. Once you disable it, re-save the permalinks. There is a conflict somewhere or else these pages would work. Also, do you know if you have anything added to the .htaccess file for this site?
Hey there! This thread has been pretty quiet for the last three weeks, so we’re going to go ahead and close it to avoid confusion with other topics. If you’re still looking for help with this, please do open a new thread, reference this one and we’d be more than happy to continue the conversation over there.
Thanks so much!
The Events Calendar Support Team
Just wanted to share with you that a new release of our plugins is out, including a fix for this issue 🙂

We apologize for the delay and appreciate your patience while we worked on this.
As always, we suggest to setup a dev/staging site so you can make all plugin updates without disrupting the live site.
