    We’ve recently discovered that we are unable to publish events. When we hit publish we get a message saying;

    “Are you sure you want to do this?”
    “Please try again”

    The event then gets saved as a draft, which again can’t be published.

    So far I have tried disabling all plug-ins and deleting event organiser (removing all data) then reinstalling it but I still get the same issue.

    I’m using wordpress 3.5.1 and event organiser 1.7.3

    Any advice? Thanks.


    Hi Sam,

    I can’t replicate this issue. It’s long shot but could you switch to TwentyEleven theme temporarily?

    The error message you see is prompted when WordPress performs a nonce check – a security check – and it fails. It’s normally caused by a plug-in/theme performing the check when they shouldn’t…

    Thanks Stephen,

    The site is running a twenty ten child theme, but i get the same issue when switching to twenty eleven.

    I can see how the issue will be difficult to replicate. Is there any way I can find out what’s causing the nonce check to fail?

    Thanks again.


    Hi Stephen,

    I just manually reinstalled WordPress over the top of my current installation and it has fixed the issue.

    The automatic update to version 3.5.1 must have got itself in to a bit of a mess.

    EO is working perfectly now 🙂


    Awesome 🙂

    For future reference an easy way of checking what function is behind something like that:

    add_filter( 'wp_die_handler', 'wp_die_debugger' );
    function wp_die_debugger( $function ){
        echo wp_debug_backtrace_summary();
        return $function;

    But I would recommend removing it as soon as you’ve finished debugging. Works for WP 3.4+.
