There is not a built in way to do conditional questions. The best way that I could see doing that is to write some jQuery to do it. I would put all the parish options into the question answers in the EE admin, then have the jQuery erase all the parish options when the page loads. Then put a listener on the region question that basically has a big switch statement, and add the options into the parish question based on which region is selected.

Hi Joel,

From watching your video, it looks like what you’re looking to do is add conditional questions based on the answers of other questions. I’m afraid that Event Espresso doesn’t have this feature out of the box. If you know some jQuery you can add some jQuery to the registration page to hide,show, or toggle questions based on selected options.

Alternatively there is a plugin that we didn’t develop that has been used to add conditional questions. Please note that we do not support this add-on, it’s offered as-is.

Thanks for the plugin, is there a way to integrate Gravity forms because it has the ability for conditional questions

Hi Joel,

We haven’t tested any integrations with Gravity forms.

I wrote up some example jQuery that does the DOM manipulation like I described. You could add it to the end of the registration_page_display.php. Note that it’s a one-off. You would have to modify the jQuery based on the questions and answers you are targeting:

Please could you tell me what parts of the code I have to change and please give me an example, I am not very good at coding, hence why I bought the plugin.

Ps. Couldn’t get the conditional plugin shared to work.

Hi Joel,

Sidney gave you a detailed example. In this case we can recommend contacting one of our recommended pros who can do custom development work that can code this up for you:

Hi Josh,

As I can see, this has been a feature a lot of people have asked for, after searching for hours for a solution, I came across a lot of discussion about this even in the old forum, so my question is, why should I have to pay an external developer hundreds of dollars to give me a solution to something that should have already been a part of this plugin suite?

That does not sound right, I am just needing help to know what to put in the different areas of the script.

Hi Joel,

Event Espresso does not advertise that it has the ability to create conditional questions. While it would be a nice feature to add, and we would like to add it one day, it’s not a feature that has been added yet.

Sidney spent some time yesterday coming up with some example code that can be used to make something like this possible, but in order to use the example code a basic understanding of jQuery is required. If you have the time to learn a basic understanding of jQuery, I can recommend checking out CodeAcademy’s tutorials.

In general, if readymade solutions (like any WordPress plugin) do not have the feature that your client requires, then a viable solution is to extend the plugin so that it does. We are not in a position to add this feature to the plugin right now, so the option we can recommend is to hire a developer who has the time to take it on right now.
