Calender widget "register now" button text filter

I need to change the text in the “Register Now” button which displays inside the popup that displays when visitors click on an event in the EE calender widget. It’s hard to describe without uploading an image! Is there an example of a filter I can use to change this text?

Hi there,

For screenshots you need to host the image and post a link here for us to view, we have some examples of how you can add screenshots here:

To change the ‘Register Now’ text on the calendar you have a couple of options, you can either translate that string to something else using one of the methods shown here:

Or, there is a filter within the Calendar that allows you to change the button text:


When using that filter it’s the full HTML for the reg now button so it would be expected that you rebuild the HTML yourself, see:

However you can use str_replace() to replace ‘Register Now’ with whatever you prefer, another example:

You can add either of those to a Custom Functions Plugin on your site.
