Duplicate or Copy an Event

The powerful Duplicate event feature helps you to save a lot of time when creating new events. You can create a new event by copying or duplicating an existing event with all the same information as the original event.

Once you duplicate your event, you can simply update review and update the newly created event with new dates and information as necessary. All that takes just a moment to create the new event.

When duplicating an event, the following fields are copied from the existing event to a new event:

  • Event Name/Title
  • Permalink/url

  • Datetime(s)
  • Ticket(s)
  • Venue Selection

Restrict access to private events by password protecting your event pages

With Event Espresso 4 you can set a password for every event created so that if a user comes to your WordPress events website to register for an event, the user needs to enter the event password in order to see the event details and to register.

Password protected events are helpful for event organizers who have events for special types of attendees. This can be helpful for association member-only events, VIPs, vendors, or employees.

You can also use this password restriction at the beginning of an event to invite only special guests when registration opens to grant special access, and then remove the password restriction later on when you want the general public to access the event.

See also our feature to restrict access with custom capabilities.

Create a Password-Protected Event

password protected event pages and registration
To create a password-protected event navigate to:

  • Event Espresso > Events > Add New
  • Go to the “Save New Event” on a new event or “Update Event” meta box
  • Open the Visibility option
  • Add your password and press “OK”

Don’t forget to update, save or publish your event.

From there on, website viewers will be prompted to enter the event password for this event to access that event page.
