Firstly, With respect to: https://eventespresso.com/wiki/multiple-events-registration-use-add-to-cart-link-instead-of-default-registration-form/
The suggestion for using image buttons works great. When a member selects “Register Now” though, the default that is then shown is “View Cart” in text – how do we 1) show the same “Register Now” button instead?; or 2) show a different button, say “View Cart” instead of the text as it is easily missed by logged in members.

Secondly, with respect to MER – is it possible to have a drop down list for each additional attendee to choose the relevant ticket and add personal information and then move on for the registration process? Currently we are using the view cart mechanism for multiple registrations.

Hi,

The view cart is an situation that will require CSS.

Take this for example

<pre class=”brush: css; gutter: true; first-line: 1; highlight: []; html-script: false”>.ee_add_item_to_cart {
display:inline-block;
background: url('http://www.ee-3136.5.dev/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/basket_empty.png&#039๐Ÿ˜‰ 0 0 no-repeat !important;
text-indent: -9999px;
}

.ee_view_cart {
display:inline-block;
background: url('http://www.ee-3136.5.dev/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/GREEN-TICK.png&#039๐Ÿ˜‰ 0 0 no-repeat;
text-indent: -9999px;
}

Note: don’t forget to change the image urls!

This will add an image to show for the add to cart, and then swap it over to a different image for the view cart: screenshot http://take.ms/eGasV

Regarding the dropdown question, I’m not 100% sure what you mean, but the default process is to select the number of tickets per event and then move onto adding the attendee data. There really isn’t a way to change that without modifying the plugin quite heavily.

Thank you.

1) Another option would be for us to change the text “View Cart” to “View Options” – would that be possible?

2) In essence we have multiple ticket options with the ability to book for multiple delegates at one time (as they may bring guests). Ideally, we would like multiple drop down lists available but in the default presentation only have on drop down list with then an option to add attendees – but all are then linked to that single option. The only way to get around this is to use switch off the registration form and use the cart option. But, when the tickets are selected in the cart all delegate information requested per ticket is relevant to that of a primary attendee. 100% happy with the rest of the presentation but in this instance it makes bigger registrations quite lengthy. Is there another option to make other attendees required information less when automatically linked to the primary attendee info? (other than reverting back to the single drop down selection option). OR in the default registration form option to have multiple drop down selections and then to enter attendee information per ticket?

Not sure if we are querying something out of the scope Event Espresso but would appreciate any assistance.

Thank you.

Hi,

1) Yes you can. You can use the language files ( https://eventespresso.com/wiki/how-to-change-wording-with-poedit/ ) or a plugin such as Quick Localisation. If using the plugin please use event_espresso as the domain phrase http://take.ms/EpSXq

2) If I understand right, the best available option would be to limit the questions asked for an additional attendee. You can do this by either:

Setting the Additional Attendee Registration info? option in the event to Personal Information only (name and email).

Or by setting it to Full Registration info, but then amending what question groups are asked in the Event Questions for Additional Attendees section further down the page.

The second option basically means that the primary attendee will be asked XYZ question groups, but the additional attendees will only be asked Z question group.
