Couple of questions

Dear friends,

I have a few questions here:

(1) Is there a way to automate the registration start/end dates for newly created events? Right now when I add a new event, the Reg start date is “today” which is fine, but the end date is set to “14 Dec 2013”. Is there a way to automate the Reg End Date to the Event Start Date?

(2) I tried registering for an event, when I received the confirmation e-mail, the sender is “WordPress <admin@domain>”. Is there a way to change the name “WordPress” to something else? I checked my admin wordpress account, it has a firstname and lastname. Not sure what went wrong here.

(3) Is there a way I can change the format of the upcoming events widget to show: [Event Name, Speaker, Date] instead of just the event name and date? I also realise that the list is according to the event ID. Is it possible to change it to list according to event date instead? The homepage of the widget is (blank)

(4) How can I make the event categorical listing to be in a table form with the column format [Event Name, Date/Time, Register Link] instead of the default listing? The page is (blank)

Many thanks! Appreciate your time! 🙂

1) Unfortunately not without editing the core which will then be overwritten after each EE update.

2) If you go Event Espresso -> General Settings. ‘Email Settings’
Is ‘Use fancy email headers?’ set to No?
If so set it to Yes and update the settings.

3) This would require some customization to the widget template. The Event speaker is not called from the database, this would need to be included within the query.

4) We have the [ESPRESSO_TABLE] short-code available through the Custom Files Add-on which can be used to display a table of events although we are soon to release a new Add-on which may suit your needs more if you can wait a little?
