I'm running Wordpress 4.4.1 and CiviCRM 4.6.11

The main page of our site http://www.mltawa.asn.au is redirecting to an old event's page (http://mltawa.asn.au/2015-agm-registration/?page=CiviCRM&q=civicrm/event/info&reset=1&id=7). When I disable the event, it goes into a loop or, if logged in as admin, I get the pop-up message in the back-end:

The event you requested is currently unavailable (contact the site administrator for assistance).

Ideas of where to start looking to fix this? :)

  • Can you go to Administer - System Settings - CMS Database Integration and tell what's in "WordPress Base Page"? – Catorghans Jan 17 '16 at 8:37
  • Ya, it's just set to the default - it's blank atm. – Esther Jan 17 '16 at 9:00
  • so, nothing in the text field? – Catorghans Jan 17 '16 at 9:00
  • That's correct. Sometimes I get this error "Exception thrown GAPI: Failed to authenticate user. Error: "developers.google.com/accounts/docs/AuthForInstalledApps " I don't know where to start looking... – Esther Jan 17 '16 at 9:02
  • If I deactivate the CiviCRM plugin, it's all fine, so I know there's some box somewhere I need to tick or untick or change! – Esther Jan 17 '16 at 9:03

Create an empty Wordpress page, name it what you want, for example "civi". Add that name to the "WordPress Base Page" in Administer - System Settings - CMS Database Integration.

For more info see: http://wiki.civicrm.org/confluence/display/CRMDOC/Displaying+Public+Forms+in+WordPress+Frontend+Sites

Does that work?

  • Unfortunately not :( – Esther Jan 17 '16 at 9:15
  • hmm, what happens if you go mltawa.asn.au/2015-agm-registration Does that page exist also when CiviCRM is disabled? – Catorghans Jan 17 '16 at 9:21
  • Yes - the page exists, and then just displays the header image and shortcode for the form. – Esther Jan 17 '16 at 9:36
  • Another thing I can think about is something weird in Wordpress Settings - Reading - Front Page settings. – Catorghans Jan 17 '16 at 9:37

    I see the "normal" front page now, it seems like [civicrm component=”event” id=”7″ action=”register” mode=”live” hijack=”0″] is somehow taking over command and forwards to the page. What happens if you delete this component from that page when you activate CiviCRM? – Catorghans Jan 17 '16 at 9:40
