Event Blocks?


I’m trying to make sense of The Events Calendar‘s decision to allow events to be managed in the block editor.

Sell me this pencil.

This giant leap forward is all about empowerment. No coding chops? No sweat! With the block editor, anyone can create rich content and beautiful layouts with zero HTML or CSS required.”

Okay, cute. But what you’ve really done is broken the tribe_events_tickets_metabox_edit_main hook that lets us add an extra checkbox to the Edit Event screen.

So the only solution we can give at this point is

If you don’t see the Add Attendees checkbox when editing your The Events Calendar events, you may need to install the Classic Editor plugin.”
