Creating an Online Class

I would like to create a distance learning class that takes place only online without a physical location. My question is how does one go about setting up an online venue via the backend of Event Espresso so this online venue is communicated to others via the frontend of my site. In other words, How can I add a new venue in the ‘Add Venue’ in Event Espresso so it doesn’t show a physical location?

Thank you

Hi Ryan,

You can leave the Address fields blank and it won’t show a physical location.

Thanks Josh,

please refer to the two screenshots I’ve included which doesn’t allow for blank address fields:

Thanks again.

Hi Ryan,

What you can do is go to Event Espresso > General Settings, then select a country other than Qatar (it can be any country), then set Country Appears in Dropdown Select Lists to Yes. Then click Save.

Then, when you go to edit/add a venue, you’ll see a please select option for the Country field, and you can skip selecting anything in that field.

The State field works the same way, but if you do not want to add any states in the Country Settings, you can blank out the 0 in the Venue’s address form.
