Which file do I modify to change the Onsite Payment and Offsite Payment text that appears on the payment page when someone is registering for an event?

This should be in gateways/gateway_display.php.

I would like to get rid of thee “Off-site Payment” text altogether. Can this be accomplished using any of the templates. I’d rather not make any changes to the core code of Event Espresso.

To give a bit more information — the course I just created only gives participants the option to pay by PayPal. The “Please choose a payment option” section currently contains the label “Off-site Payment” then a large gap (looks like an empty form) followed by a PayPal button. This looks really ugly and people on smaller screens wouldn’t see the PayPal button without scrolling.

Thank in advance for any suggestions you have to pass along…

/gateways/gateway_display.php can be copied over to /wp-content/uploads/espresso/gateways and modified there. This file should load before the core file.

Hi TStringer, Did you resolve this issue? I am struggling with it also. Can you post the final php code you applied to which file? Thanks!

Following to this request, I have figured out much of the title removals and layout rearrangement for the page, however, I still cant get rid of all the space before the PayPal button. Please let me know how this can be achieved? Thanks in advance!

When I view the source I can see that the space above paypal button is made up of all the customer form values; name, address, business logo etc etc, which are “hidden” and spaced by line breaks “”

Sigh.. how to hide the space they are taking up?
