I looked though the documentation, but am not finding what happens when the attendee limit is reached. Is the submit button disabled, is there a message on the form? The event organizer is asking me. Thanks!

You’ll get this prompt:

Or you can setup a waiting list:

Where would I change the text of that alert. I need it to respond with a message and a url. Thanks!

You can find it in the registration_page_display.php file in the templates directory:

                        <?php _e('We are sorry but registration for this event is now closed.', 'event_espresso'); ?>
                <p class="event_full">
                        <?php _e('Please <a href="contact" title="contact us" rel="nofollow">contact us</a> if you would like to know if spaces are still available.', 'event_espresso'); ?>

It is recommended before you make the change to first copy the two files, registration_page_display.php AND registration_page.php from the templates folder in the plugins/eventespresso folder to the uploads/espresso/templates folder and make your changes there, so that you don’t lose the changes the next time you upgrade.

I changed the statement in the registration_page_display.php file in both the plugins and upload templates directory, but it’s showing the stock answer still. I cleared cache completely in the browsers to be sure and then actually deleted the registration_page_display.php file, got errors, uploaded again and it still is not updating. even tried from my iphone not having gone to the site with same result.

Code updated:
case ‘REGISTRATION_CLOSED’: //only show the event description.
// if todays date is after $reg_end_date



                        &lt;?php _e(&#039;Please <a href="" title="Lunch and Learn">click here</a> to schedule a one-on-one lunch and learn session.', 'event_espresso'); ?&gt;

The URL that you posted looks like it’s for an open event. What’s the URL for the event that’s closed for registration?

Same URL, the client just asked me to change the attendee limit to allow a test registration and I forgot to set it back to trigger the closed event. will show as closed now. Just can’t figure out given I am posting in the right spot why the changes I made to the message aren’t showing up. Thanks!

The above code will display if the event is past the registration end date. To change the part that is displayed when the attendee limit is reached, look in registration_page.php, line 275.
