WordPress MU – BuddyPress and Events Manager *Bug Fix*

I’m working on an install of WordPress Multi-User including BuddyPress for a client. I know, I know. We’ve been trying to hold on until WP 3 comes out, but we can’t wait any longer. For those of you that don’t know BuddyPress is a plugin for WordPress that adds social networking functionality to WordPress.

Anyway, I have been trying to install the plugin Events Manager, but unfortunately it has been causing some problems. I finally figured it out so I wanted to post it here. It’s not actually a fix, but more like a work around. Hopefully it will save others a bit of frustration. I also posted this on the forum for the plugin. Events Manager Forum.

I’m running a test version on another domain so I can make changes before the live version. I after seeing a post asking why there was no change log to the new version of the plugin, I realized I upgraded it when WP said there was a new version available and didn’t think about it much. So, in my test version I uninstalled version 2.2.2 and reinstalled 2.1. Guess what it worked again. So, I went over to the settings page and all the defaults were there. For some reason when you install/upgrade to 2.2.2 it dumps out all the defaults including the page title. I then copied and pasted the setting from 2.1 into 2.2.2 and it works fine now. Follow the link below for a pdf that shows the default settings.
