5.4.4 and Pro 2.3.6 Released

Posted on June 24, 2013

This update adds many important fixes to some of the newer features in Pro, as well as fixing some outstanding EM bugs along with some minor changes which make some new Pro features in this latest update work as expected.

Important Improvements/Additions

In this latest update to Pro, we’ve not only made a ton of improvements to our beta Multiple Bookings Feature (which is just about ready to leave beta!), we’ve also added a new feature.

We’ll talk about it in more detail later this week, but we’re happy to announce the addition of custom booking email templates! You can now create automated booking templates specific to your events or gateways. Go to your Settings > Bookings tab and see the new section there!

    Hi Alex,

    Please raise this issue on either of these forums and we’ll be able to help you troubleshoot further there:

    Free (EM) Forums
    Pro User Forums

    If you could provide more info on what exactly happens to ‘break’ the site, any links and if you’re seeing blank screens check your error logs to see if there’s any clue.

    If you can’t access your admin area due to this you can deactivate EM by renaming the wp-content/plugins/events-manager/ folder via FTP
