Events+ widget (Network Upcoming) gives the wrong link to single event page

Hello,

I am having a bit of trouble with a widget that comes with Events+. It is called the 'Network Upcoming' widget. I'm assuming that it is meant to list the upcoming events that have been posted anywhere on your network - which is really what I'm looking for.

As of right now, I have the main network site and one child site. The child site has two test events created with Events+. When I activate the 'Network Upcoming' widget on the main network site, it lists the upcoming events from the child site correctly. But, the title of each event is a link, and when clicked, they do not go to the page devoted to that event on the child site, as you would suspect. One of the test events is linked back to the main network site and the second test event is linked to '/blog/6-revision/'

Not sure why this is happening. I have the 'Recent Global Posts' widget installed right below and it is also showing the two events (since they're the most recent on the network) and clicking on the titles in that widget takes me to the correct pages. Any idea why this may be happening?? Any way that I could get the titles to link straight to the event page itself?

    Thanks for the reply Joe, awesome support around here!

    Sorry, the URL is http://theatrekc.com and the widgets are in the right sidebar.

    Silly little me thought that maybe I was skipping something so elementary that someone might be able to just say 'Hey, switch on XXXX'. Hah. Either way, thank you for getting back so quickly!

    Greetings Noah,

    Thank you for the link and allowing me to get my head wrapped around what is going on there.

    Any chance you have reset the permalinks to anything but default?

    And since your installation of these plugins have you indeed reset them again?

    Even if they are on the same setting you originally set them to, save them again which in effect will reset them and test those URL's again please.

    Please advise.

    Cheers, Joe

    Hi again Joe,

    Ok, I had changed the Permalink structure and so I reset it like you said, but still no change. So, I continued to fiddle with things and I've figured out what the problem is, but I have no idea how to fix it. Allow me to explain, please bear with me...

    When an event is added through a network site, I have found that the main network site (where the 'Network Upcoming' widget is in place) will try to link to those events using the post id of the event. But, it is trying to link to the post id on the main network site and NOT to the post id on the child site.

    Example...

    Through a network site called 'Theatre Company Template', I added an event called 'Another Test' and the single event page is at http://theatrekc.com/theatre-company-template/events/2012/09/another-test/ and the post id is 17.

    When the 'Network Upcoming' widget lists 'Another Test' on the main network site, it tries to link to http://theatrekc.com/?p=17. I'm guessing that it really wants to link to http://theatrekc.com/theatre-company-template?p=17 - which would lead me to the correct single event page.

    So, it is attempting to link to events using the page id, but it's linking to the page ID's of the main network site itself and not to the page id's of the child site that posted the event.

    So sorry for being confusing, but that's the best way that I could describe what is happening. I'm trying to be as specific as possible. Is this the correct functionality of the 'Network Upcoming' widget? Am I using it incorrectly? Thanks again for the help.

    Greetings Noah,

    Thank you for the fantastic detailed input and your absolutely great find.

    At this point with all the information together it is time to call in our lead developer @Vladislav because I am sure he will want to see this for himself.

    I would almost call this a confirmed bug.

    Therefore I will see if I can get the lead developer in here with his invaluable insight into this plugin for his advice/advise for us.

    Though this may take a bit longer then a normal ticket, I will try to get him in here asap.

    Cheers, Joe

    Great! I can confirm that this fix is working!

    Incredible support here. I can't say enough about how professional, fast and helpful you guys are. I went from reporting a problem, to having a full blown bug patch in about 24 hours. Crazy! Thanks again both of you.

    I hope that this fix will be included in the next update of Events+ so everyone else can take advantage!
