Recurring Events – Clarification Please
Thanks so much for reaching out!
When you set up a recurring event, the event will end if there are no more instances created. For example, if you create a recurring event to recur every week for 4 weeks, the event will not be recreated after those four events have past.
If you want events to recur indefinitely, you will have to intentionally set it up that way. You also have options about when events should be cleaned up and how far in advance new events should be created. You can find these options in Events Settings < General.
I hope this helps to provide some clarification for you. If you have any other questions on this topic, please let me know!
Hi, they were all set to repeat indefinitely as they are ongoing clubs, classes etc. but didn’t do so. I had set it up to clean up after a month and repeat for a month (though thankfully the clean up didn’t do anything either as the events are still listed in the backend, so I do still have all the info.
Okay, it seems like there may be something that isn’t working properly.
As a first troubleshooting step, could you please provide us with your complete system information in a private reply using the instructions found in the following link?
In addition, can you take a screenshot of the way you have one of your events set up that doesn’t seem to be working as expected.
Also, if you go to Events Settings < General, what does your “Create recurring events in advance for” setting say?
Let me know!
Great, thanks for providing me with all of that information. As a first troubleshooting step, can you update your WordPress version and Events Calendar, Events Calendar PRO, and Community Events, to their most recent versions?
After doing so, try creating a new recurring event and see if the issue still occurs.
Let me know how it goes!
Okay, I am fully updated.
I’ve added a test event and it’s successfully created future events, but I’m guessing I won’t be able to see if it’s worked for a month or so as this is what happened previously too! Is it possible to have this thread stay open until I can check?
On a separate note, the filter bar doesn’t seem to be working now I’ve updated. Is that something that can be addressed here, or do I need to start a new thread?
I’m glad that you were able to create some future events, let’s see how it goes! I can keep this thread open until you check to see if the issue still occurs.
As far as the Filter Bar issue, I’d recommend opening up a new thread, just to keep it to one issue per thread.
Let me know how everything goes!
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!
