Event Registration form not showing for event

I can’t get the registration form to show for some reason. The description can be toggled on/off, but the actual registration form will not. I have reinstalled twice to no avail. Suggestions?

Check the setting in the event editor that is labeled: “Display registration form?” make sure this is set to Yes.

Also, if you have recently updated from an older version of Event Espresso, check in /wp-content/uploads/espresso/templates for older templates from a previous version.

Did both of those per previous posts in this forum. I can get the description to show/not show, and can even add/create a post from the event and delete the post as well. But when I select “Yes” or “no” from ‘Display Registration Form’ it does not show up regardless of my selection choice…..it does keep the selection I choose whether it be ‘yes’ or ‘no’, it doesn’t show regardless of the selection.

And I made sure that the “Pages” created by EE are using ‘Espresso Events’ as the template file and they all have the correct [shortcode] on them.

I also have the custom-file templates in the WP theme folder I am using.

Pages created by Event Espresso shouldn’t use the Event Espresso templates, those are for the custom post type feature. Set these to use standard theme templates.

OK – reverted those back to the theme’s default. Now I get the Event Registration page title , which is good — but still no registration form. Now the description doesn’t show up either whether it select to or not.

Ahhhhh – figured it out after much hacking and I got the registration form to show on a ‘showcase’ template page. I will have to create a generic page template to use for the EE Pages. I took the advise from your previous reply and ‘saw’ what was happening. I don’t have a ‘generic’ default WP template and I need to create one that will ‘read’ EE’s info for output. Thanks for your help and time!
