EE3: Change "Closed" to "Full" in event list

Hi – I’ve searched for this topic but haven’t quite found what I’m after. I want to change the word “Closed” to “Class Full” in all event listing pages. I thought it would be a matter of adding the event_list_display.php template to the uploads/templates folder, and changing these lines:

$status_display_custom_closed = $status[‘status’] == ‘REGISTRATION_CLOSED’ ? ‘ – <span class=”‘.espresso_template_css_class(‘espresso_closed’,’espresso_closed’, false).'”>’ . __(‘Class Full’, ‘event_espresso’) . ‘</span>’ : ”;

and then uncomment:

<?php echo $status_display_custom_closed; //Turn this on to display the closed message. ?>

But the event still says just “Closed”. What do I need to do instead?

If you haven’t already done so, you’ll also need to copy over the event_list.php file over to /wp-content/uploads/espresso/templates.

Thanks Josh – I did that, but no change. Do I have to amend that template too in some way? BTW, to test, I’m just changing the registration end date to the past. And then I clear the site cache. Let me know if there’s a better way to do this.

You do not have to amend event_list.php, you’d only amend event_list_display.php.

Just to be sure, you’ve placed the two templates into /wp-content/uploads/espresso/templates, not into uploads/templates, correct?

Correct – but I found the solution. I’d forgotten that I also have the Custom Template plugin for event tables. I made the change in that template, and it all looks good. Thanks for helping me troubleshoot!
