I’m being prompted to migrate Events. Should I?
If you have updated The Events Calendar Pro you may be prompted to “migrate” events. This is because The Events Calendar Pro 6.0.0 introduced a new storage system that will allow the plugin authors to expand functionality.
If you get this message, please review this full article that explains the migration process, how to do it, and what it accomplishes.
So, should I migrate?
The short answer: Yes, if you can.
As outlined in the article above, you will first have to “Preview” the migration and when you complete that preview you may be notified that some events cannot be migrated. This may be due to an error in the event configuration (ex: missing start time). If that’s the case, you should fix the error(s) and migrate the events. If you’re not sure how to resolve the errors you may take a screenshot of the issue and open a technical clarification with a detailed explanation of the issue.
Please note: Recurring Events with tickets are not eligible to be migrated, so if the site has ineligible events we will need to hold off on migrating them until a future date when tickets on recurring events are supported. Non-migrated events are still supported by the plugin author but will not have access to the new features offered by migration.
Help, the migration preview doesn’t generate!
If you can’t generate the migration preview please check to see if WP Rocket is installed and active. If so, temporarily deactivate WP Rocket and try the migration preview again. If the preview works then complete the migration and re-activate WP Rocket. If the migration preview still does not work with WP Rocket disabled you may take a screenshot of the issue and open a technical clarification with a detailed explanation.
