EE 3.1.25

Firstly the new version is great, I havent upgraded for a while so much change which is great. I have updated to 3.1.25 on development server to test prior to going live, and I have one or two little bugs, sure there just CSS issues with my theme as I upgraded it too.
the two main issues are:

on the payment page (the page with the payment options)
there appears to be a huge gap 1/2 a page between the EWAY and Pay Pal, is there a way to reduce it.

the second is the on the registration form that the add more attendees dosent do anything when clicked, (also checked the option in the event, its on)

also both issues happen with or without themeroller enabled (which by the way is great for non CSS people, thanks for that.

Below is the test server url for you to see, I have also created a test event at $ 0.01 incase you need to test.

so in summary if there is anyway to provide me any CSS stuff to paste as I cant code.

thanks again for great software

Any ideas on this Chris?

Re: payment page —
This is something your theme is doing. Josh has mentioned this before and I don’t know that I can point to a specific WordPress function but what’s happening is your theme is inserting <br> tags after every hidden input line in the PayPal button. Since PayPal buttons use a lot of hidden fields, this throws the image way down the screen.


I’m not sure how to resolve that since we didn’t (and wouldn’t) put those <br> tags in there, so you might need to contact your theme developer on that one. It’s possible you could hack it by using some absolute positioning. I did some fiddling in Chrome’s element inspector and this seemed to work:

 #espresso_payment_buttons form {
      position: absolute;
 ul#espresso_payment_buttons {
      padding-left: 0px!important;
      list-style: none;
      padding-bottom: 20px;
 #espresso_payment_buttons li {
      height: 40px;

Re: add more attendees —

This is coming from a javascript error on your page:

<p><script type="text/javascript">$jaer = jQuery.noConflict();var attendee_num = 0;var additional_limit = 5;var first_add_button = null;var selector = 'div#additional_attendee_' + attendee_num;function markup(attendee_num) {return '
Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected token ILLEGAL

I would check to make sure you don’t have any template files in /wp-content/uploads/espresso/templates/ and — if you don’t — I can only assume that this is something the theme is doing, too, since I don’t see any reason for that javascript to get cut off after the '. You can try switching to TwentyTen or TwentyEleven to test and see if the issue with the add more attendees link persists — if not, you know it’s something in your theme that’s causing it.

I do have templates in that folder, there ee custom file 3.1, all the new ones plus one migrated sidney made, the movie table one.

Does that mean my theme is causing it, if so what should I ask them or explain to them?

Regarding the payment button thing if I paste that code into the theme CSS should that work

The template that’s being used (that would cause the javascript error) is the registration_page_display.php — if you have one of those, just rename it or move it out of that folder and see if the issue is resolved. It could be related to the other, theme-related issues…

As far as that goes, what I’d ask is what function they are using that would automatically insert <br> tags into content and if there is a way to disable that. The add more attendees thing could easily be related to something the theme is inserting into the markup that’s breaking the js that controls that feature.

I will contact the theme developer as in wordpress 2011, the pay pal button sits there next to eway fine,

the Re: add more attendees –

javascript issue is still happening, any further ideas, seems not to be the theme this time.

any feedback appreciated.

It’s working over here which is using the latest version of Event Espresso

Do you have a modified registration_page_display.php template?


July 21, 2012 at 7:37 pm

Chris regarding the javascript issue, I have renamed the upload folder and turned off all the templetes, I have gone to wordpress default theme and still its not able to add another attendee, also on the confirm page the edit option is not there, could it be something to do with EE new version or conflicts with EE addons. I have tested and disabled all other plugins, other than EE and EE addons – no change & I have deleted all other old EE plugins and addons too.

so it dosent seem to be theme or templete issue or other plugins


July 21, 2012 at 7:41 pm

I have private mesaged you the access to have a look.

Also just disabled all EE addons other than the main, still happening?

hope you can help

Check the questions & question groups for any apostrophes in the content of these questions and groups. Older versions of Event Espresso had a few issues where apostrophes were not being escaped/sanitized correctly. There may be an apostrophe somewhere that isn’t escaped.

Another thing you can try is wrap the [ESPRESSO_EVENTS] shortcode in [raw] short tags like this:


July 24, 2012 at 10:41 pm

Josh, I used the [raw] codes and it fixed another issue i was having but the “Add More Attendees? (click to toggle, limit 5)” still dosent work.
this issue seems to be with EE, I have disabled all other plugins and changed between my theme and the wordpress default, no change.

I will message you the log in details maybe i am missing something?

also on this page since the upgrade the form fields dont line up, any ideas?

Do you mind sharing the solution?

Thomas Richards

Yes, can you share. I am having this same problem on a MySiteMyWay theme (which you are using). The “[RAW]” shortcodes did not fix the problem. It does appear to be a theme conflict as disabling plugins did nothing, but switching to Twenty Eleven theme did.
