Missing Registrants on the Latest Event Espresso

Good day,

I am having some serious problems with Event Espresso. When someone registers on our site and then decides to immediately register someone else it does the following:


1. Send Person A and emails saying they have registered

2. If I were to quickly look at the attendees I will see Person A

3. Registering Person B will send Person B an email as well

4. The attendee list will only have Person B in the list


Please help as this issue has really caused issues with our current event. It does not look good from our side as an organization.

What is happening is that they are not completing the registration (i.e. they havent paid, or been sent to the Thank You page). As such their “session” is still active.

We are currently looking into a way to resolve this, there is a temporary fix that should close the session off, please see this thread

Thank you, would skipping that page and directly going to the confirmation page be an alternative fix to :

unset( $_SESSION['espresso_session']['id'] );

The confirmation page doesnt close the session off, it needs to be the Thank you Page (or the cancelled registration page). The thank you page comes after the confirmation page.

Yes thank you, I tested it with skipping the confirmation page and it did not work.


Going to do the quick fix, but will this file not be overwritten when I upgrade?

No, the file will be overwritten. However, we are looking to add a permanent fix for this issue going forward so it should not be a problem.

The hotfix that was released on Saturday includes some additions to the payment page that will warn users to not hit the back button in order to avoid having their registration overwritten.
