After Cloning, certain events aren't showing in Events + Calendar

Hey all,

I developed a staging site last week, then Cloned it yesterday. Aside from widgets not showing, Customizer theme options not copying, and a few other weirdnesses, it seemed to make it through well enough.

Then I got an email from a prospective organization member saying that an event URL had 404ed on her. I checked, and indeed, at least one recurring event isn't showing on the calendar. Screenshots of event settings and calendar attached.

I've updated the post and reset permalinks (because they were inexplicably changed when I Cloned the main site to staging).

An aside: This, combined with other short-fallings in the way Cloner appears to be built, make this VERY unpredictable software. Extensibility is a great goal, and has a lot of exciting prospects, but WPMU is not WP, and expecting lay-users to be able to hook into it—no matter how well documented the hooks are—is silly and counter-productive. Given Cloner is still promoted as a couple-click staging environment solution, I think that's false advertising.

I'm very surprised by the quality of this product from WPMU.

    Hi @adam,

    Hope you're well?

    Do you actually see the recurring event in the Dashboard All Events page?

    Dashboard > events+ > all events

    Find the event that's recurring and open it to edit.

    Check in the right column for all the instances.

    Click edit instances, then click on 1 from the list, see if that opens ok in the editor.

    We can then determine whether all the recurring data has actually copied over or not.

    Hi there @adam,

    Hope you’re well today! Thanks for your patience on this.

    Any chance I could take a look at the site to see what’s happening here? As the instances should be showing.

    If you could grant me access via your network admin > WPMU DEV > Support > Support access and click “Grant Access”.


    Kind Regards
