Hi Ryan,

I’m not familiar with how they made that customization. That was something that the developer of that specific site came up with.

Before going through the work of developing this, you might want to consider waiting for Event Espresso 3.2, as this will be a standard feature:

Wow, that would be great.. What is your eta on the new release? Also, I am looking at adjusting my template so that i can have buttons instead of the generic register this event link. I am definitely not a back-end developer but i’ve worked my way around editing php files.. I feel kinda silly but i can’t seem to get a finger on exactly where i can find this.. Can you point me in the right direction? I basically just want to insert the img for “Add to Cart” after it adds I will replace with a “View Cart” button. I’ve also looked through documentation and throughout the CMS in wordpress and didn’t see this as a standard option. Arts Garage

I don’t have an ETA for the release of Event Espresso 3.2, I can recommend keeping an eye on this section of the website for updates on the development here:

When I swap in buttons for links, I’ll generally go with a CSS3 button. I recommend this tool for generating a custom CSS button:

Here is some sample code:

p.register-link-footer a {
 padding: 5px 10px;
 background: orange;
 border: none;
 color: #fff;
 font-weight: bold;
 border-radius: 5px;
 -moz-border-radius: 5px;
 -webkit-border-radius: 5px;
 text-shadow: 1px 1px #666;
 text-decoration: none;
