Event Expresso 3 – Change CLOSED to SOLD OUT for Event Listings

Is there a way within EE3 so that when the registration date closes for an event, that instead of the event showing CLOSED, it can read SOLD OUT instead? Don’t see an easy option to change via back-end settings so was wondering if it’s somewhere in the code that can be edited w/o issue?

Hi Andreao,

The simplest option is to ‘translate’ that text, you can do that using a function like the one posted here:

Set your $strings array to something like:

$strings = array(
    'CLOSED' => 'SOLD OUT',
    'Closed' => 'Sold Out',
    // Add some more strings here

You can change the strings on the right to whatever you prefer then add it to a custom functions plugin:

That should change the output for you.
