Registration at:
WordPress Version 4.1.1
Event Espresso Version 4.6.11.p
Event Espresso – EE Barcode Scanner Version 1.0.0.beta.002
Event Espresso – Social Sharing (EE4.4.4+) Version 1.0.p
Event Espresso – Ticketing (EE4+) Version 1.0.0.beta.012
Recently upgraded Event Espresso

An example would be the shortcode: [INVOICE_RECEIPT_SWITCHER_BUTTON]. It currently displays “Switch to Receipt”. However, my client would like the button to read “View Registration Summary”. What php file would I need to edit to change this? Thanks.

It would be better to use the language files to “translate” the button’s wording rather than changing PHP files. Please see here:

If you are adamant about changing the file directly, it is /wp-content/plugins/event-espresso-core-reg/core/libraries/shortcodes/EE_Transaction_Shortcodes.lib.php but please note we do NOT support nor advise changing core files directly, and any plugin updates will over write those changes.
