Custom My Events Page.php in the Members add-on

Wordpress v3.7 (pre v3.8 for sure).
EE Version
Multiple Add-on including The User Intergration Add-on.
Not a new install and it has not been updated.

I’m curious if there is a way that I can customize the my_events_page.php that is a part of the Espresso-Members. I want to add a form that will allow my users to add in the hours that they participated in certain events.

We want to integrate it with the excel export as well.

I might not take it that far because i feel like i will have to modify the plugin files and then we won’t be able to install updates to the plugin and we want to avoid be stuck on an older version.

So, what i am wondering is can i drop the my_events_page.php in some folder and then the plugin is smart enough to know that I’ve duplicated it and want to be modify it outside of the plugin folder?

IF that is not possible, I will find another way to do this.

The my_events_page.php file cannot just be dropped anywhere and edited. However, the main function within the file event_espresso_my_events() is pluggable, which means you can copy it to a custom plugin or to custom_functions.php file (wp-content/uploads/espresso/custom_functions.php, you may need top create this).

Pluggable functions info –

You are right in that getting any data added to integrate with Event Espresso and the export files will be complicated and may indeed require modification to the core files.

If you require assistance with the code, we do have a list of recommended developers –
