CSV imports and duplicate events
Hi, Sally. Sorry you’re experiencing this.
If this is the bug I’m thinking it is, it was introduced as of The Events Calendar version 4.4 — does that possibly ring true with your experience?
FYI: I marked this thread as Pending Fix, which means it should receive a reply once the applicable fix has been released. I cannot guarantee when it will be fixed as it’s in the development team’s hands now. They need to assign it, code it, test it, and schedule it for release.
I apologize for this issue and appreciate your understanding and patience.
Hi – thanks for your help. It is hard to tell whether or not it started around that time…..
Can you tell me a little about the specific bug though, so that we can be confident my problem will be resolved when the bug you mention gets fixed? Is is only with CSV imports, or more general? Or just send me a link to a thread which covers it? Many thanks!
Just wanted to share with you that a new release of our plugins is out, including a the tribe_events_import_event_duplicate_matches filter that facilitates the addition of some matching rules to prevent duplicates.
Find out more about this release → https://theeventscalendar.com/maintenance-release-week-15-april-2018/
Please update the plugins and let us know if the fix works for your 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
