Congratulations message on check payment

I don’t want the Congratulations message to show when an event is paid by check because the registration is not final until we actually receive the check. The Congratulations message is ok if payment is via Paypal.

Plus, the instructions on paying by check are buried at the bottom of the page and need to be the first thing someone paying by check needs to see. Where is the template to edit that page?

Hi there,

You’ll find the template to edit the Thank You page in /shortcodes/espresso_thank_you/templates/thank-you-page-overview.template.php. However, please note that we do not recommend modifying this template directly.

Instead, you can use the WordPress filter and action hooks in the template to modify the output. For example, the ‘FHEE__thank_you_page_overview_template__order_conf_desc’ allows for changing the Congratulations message to something else, on-the-fly. So if the payment status isn’t completed yet, a different message can be displayed there.

Along with that, you can use the action hooks to move the content that normally appears at the bottom of the page to the top of the page.

Thanks. Do you have a how-to on using the action hooks?

It turns out there are a number of resources that explain how to use WordPress filter and action hooks:–wp-27373
