Groupon plug-in not showing

After updating to, Groupons were not applying to events.
As this is a Severity-1 impact to our site, I deactivated/reactivated the plugin to no avail.
I then deleted the plugin, downloaded it again, and reinstalled it.
Groupons are working now, but the Groupon plugin does not show in my WordPress plugins. I need to edit the wording around this to match what we’ve used in the past, but the plugin doesn’t show in the editor or anywhere else.

Can you please tell me what files contain the following for Coupons and Groupons:
“Promo Code:”
“Enter Voucher Code:”
These appear on the initial registration page above the “Submit” button.

Hi there,

The groupon plugin is being re-branded as the “Social Coupons” add-on. So you’ll find it under Event Espresso – Social Coupons.

The file that contains the text string “Enter Voucher Code” is in the social coupon/groupon add-on, and it’s named use_groupon_code.php.

The Promo Code: is from the core plugin in use_coupon_code.php

As an alternative to modifying plugin files, you can create an “English to English” translation by creating your own translation.

1) We recommend poedit for working on translation files:

2) After you install poedit, you can download a copy of event-espresso and open the /languages/event_espresso-en_US.po file in poedit.

3) Use the Find tool to pull up the text string you need to modify.

4) Change the string as shown:
enter image description here

5) Save, then upload the .po and newly generated .mo files to the wp-content/plugins/event-espresso/languages/ directory on your server.

Thank you for the quick reply. I missed the renaming of the plugin. I appreciate the support.

No problem, sorry for the trouble there.

One last thought Josh – what threw me was that in my Account tab, this plugin is still titled Groupon Integration. I’m sure there’s more effort to re-title this, but consistency is always helpful…

Thanks for pointing that out, we will get it amended!
