Hi there, is there anyway to include the ‘section’ name in the confirmation emails?
I want it to say ‘seat# xx’ in ‘section#: xx’
What tag would i use to do this?

There isn’t a tag for this, only one for the seat ([seating_tag], it displays the tag, seat and row).

The only way to achieve what you want would be via custom development. It’s not a hard job, but it would involve modifying a core file which we do not recommend nor support.

If you want to look into it further it is /wp-content/plugins/event-espresso/includes/functions/email.php and you will need to modify $SearchValues and $ReplaceValues arrays. (You could get away with modifying the existing seating_tag tag if that is preferable).

Updates to the plugin will over write any changes you make.

Hi, we won’t be able to assist you with core edits but you can take a look at this file:


if (defined("ESPRESSO_SEATING_CHART")) {
        if (class_exists("seating_chart")) {
            if ( seating_chart::check_event_has_seating_chart($data->event->id)) {
                $rs = $wpdb->get_row("select scs.* from ".EVENTS_SEATING_CHART_EVENT_SEAT_TABLE." sces inner join ".EVENTS_SEATING_CHART_SEAT_TABLE." scs on sces.seat_id = where sces.attendee_id = ".$attendee_id);
                if ( $rs !== NULL ) {
                    $data->seatingchart_tag = $rs->custom_tag." ".$rs->seat." ".$rs->row;
