Hi there,

I want to include a Back to Programme button on the event registration page and I can see that it’s possible to add it in registration_page_display.php file in event-espress plugin’s templates folder.

But the issue is that I want different URLs for different categories.

For example, we have 2 event days at the moment: and

So we need a back to programme button on each of those events registration pages which links back to the respective day calendar.

How can I do this?

Use a basic if statement in the registration_page_display.php file, using the category_id (not the identifier, the actual ID)


$myeventcat = $event->category_id;

if ($myeventcat == 1) { echo '<a href="">Go back</a>'; }
if ($myeventcat == 2) { echo '<a href="">Go back</a>'; };


if you do

<?php var_dump($event); ?>

you will get access to all the available information in that variable if you need to do further work.
