Event Update Authority Settings Bug

    Previously reported in https://theeventscalendar.com/support/forums/topic/event-aggregator-facebook-imports-not-updating-event-venues/

    Currently the only way that Venues are updated when associated Facebook Event locations change is when the “Overwrite my event with any changes from the original source.” setting is selected. THIS IS WRONG. Event Aggregator should update Event Venues for updated Facebook events when the “Import events but preserve local changes to event fields.” Update Authority setting is selected. This bug requires me to sacrifice local changes if I want to ensure that my events maintain accurate location data.

    Please see the above link for reproduction steps. I would like this bug logged with the development team and fixed in an upcoming release.
