Change Event Table Heading Names

On the events table list I’d like to change the Name of the ‘Event’ column to ‘Class’ and the ‘Date’ heading to ‘Date of First Lesson’.

Can I do this with a custom function?

Thank you!

Hi there,

I’m assuming this is using the event table template, correct? –

If so you can translate those strings with a custom function but you’ll need a little hoop-jumping to only translate it on that page.

An easier method for that table will be to copy the template used for the table into a child theme and alter the string in the template, EE will then use a copy of the template from your theme in place of the original.

So if you copy eea-events-table-template\templates\espresso-events-table-template.template.php into your theme and change line 45 from:

<th class="th-group"><?php _e('Event','event_espresso'); ?></th>


<th class="th-group"><?php _e('Class','event_espresso'); ?></th>

and line 49, from:

<th class="th-group"><?php _e('Date','event_espresso'); ?></th>


<th class="th-group"><?php _e('Date of First Lesson','event_espresso'); ?></th>

That will change the output for you.

Yes, that’s the one, apologies! That worked perfectly, thank you very much!
