Is this possible?

So our site requires a lot of different events (for classes). Since we have 4 pricing options for each event (class), that means 8 total prices when you count members, and 16 total fields when you add in the descriptors. Is it possible to have preset pricing fields in the add new event form? This would be similar to the venue manager, but for prices. I’m comfortable with editing PHP. Thanks for any help!

There is no function built into Event Espresso that would do this for you — it would require custom development. Off the top of my head, I don’t know where those price forms are created, but I’m thinking that’s where you’d want to start looking. Just make sure that you’re using the custom files add-on rather than hacking core directly.

In 3.2 I believe this can be done natively.

Thank you for your response. I was looking around but I can’t seem to find how the pricing fields are generated either.

So I added this to add_new_event.php but it only populates the member pricing fields, not the standard ones. Any idea why?

a href=”#event-pricing” onclick=”

document.getElementById('add-member-name-2').value = 'Drop-in Class'; 
document.getElementById('add-member-price-2').value = '15.00'; 
document.getElementById('add-member-name-3').value = 'Buy 8 Classes (Never Expire)'; 
document.getElementById('add-member-price-3').value = '110.00'; 
document.getElementById('add-member-name-4').value = 'Buy 1 Month Unlimited Classes'; 
document.getElementById('add-member-price-4').value = '150.00'; 
document.getElementById('add-member-name-5').value = 'Pay Later'; 
document.getElementById('add-member-price-5').value = '0.00'; 
document.getElementById('add-member-name-6').value = 'I\'ve already paid (package)'; 
document.getElementById('add-member-price-6').value = '0.00';   
document.getElementById('add-price-type-1').value = 'Drop-in Class'; 
document.getElementById('add-event-cost').value = '15.00'; 
document.getElementById('add-price-type-2').value = 'Buy 8 Classes (Never Expire)'; 
document.getElementById('add-price-2').value = '110.00'; 
document.getElementById('add-price-type-3').value = 'Buy 1 Month Unlimited Classes'; 
document.getElementById('add-price-3').value = '150.00'; 
document.getElementById('add-price-type-4').value = 'Pay Later'; 
document.getElementById('add-price-4').value = '0.00'; 
document.getElementById('add-price-type-5').value = 'I\'ve already paid (package)'; 
document.getElementById('add-price-5').value = '0.00';

I would actually do it on the submission side, instead of the form side. Maybe put a checkbox in the form “use preset pricing”, and the in insert_event.php, right before line 360, check for that checkbox, and if it’s checked, override the $_REQUEST[‘event_cost’] array with one populated with your preset pricing.
