Multi Event addon – Can I use one button for "add to cart?"

EE4 Support,

For our fishing tournament we have three separate event registrations for a single event; one for Angler Teams (which include free guest/guide and additional guest/guide tickets), one for Table Sponsorships (which include angler teams with free guest/guide and free table workers), and one for additional sponsorship registrations (including door prize sponsorships, bucket sponsorships and auction sponsorships) which do not require purchase of a team.

I like having the registrations separated into the different sections with the Multi Event addon, but it feels counter intuitive to have to return to the cart to add the separate registrations, as this is actually a single event. Is there any way to have just one “add to cart” button? Or, barring this, is there a way to have some kind of separation with a title between the items on a single event list as apposed to Multi Event?

Please also keep in mind that I will be creating a csv file for the entrees for badge creation and a separate csv file to keep track of the sponsorship items. I will also use the check in system to monitor the purchases of the sponsorship items as well as check in for the event.

I would also like to change the “return to Event List” button to read “Return to Registration list”

Thank you so much for your help! I feel like we are almost there!

Laura

Hi Laura,

Is there any way to have just one “add to cart” button?

Not for multiple events no, each ticket selector submits its own tickets, so you can’t have 1 button to submit multiple ticket selector selections.

Or, barring this, is there a way to have some kind of separation with a title between the items on a single event list as apposed to Multi Event?

I’m not sure what this means, can you post a screenshot?

I would also like to change the “return to Event List” button to read “Return to Registration list”

This function: https://gist.github.com/Pebblo/385e46712013a3ee5908

Allows you to change the strings used by the Multi Event Add-on, you need this function: https://gist.github.com/Pebblo/385e46712013a3ee5908#file-ee-site-specific-plugin-php-L8-L11

Change return 'Return to Event List'; to return 'Return to Registration list'; and then add that function (not all of the functions if you don’t need them) to your themes functions.php file.

Here is the screenshot of the Registration page. I like that the different types of registrations are separate, but when the customer selects something out of the first list and also needs something out of another list (like the Bucket Sponsorship for example) they would have to select “add to event cart” and then select “return to Event List” (currently changed to “Return to Registration”) to add another selection from a different event list. I would prefer it all be on one event list sense it is actually one event, but I would need the ability to separate the events, similarly as to what is seen in the screenshot, with a large title between the selections for that type of entry.

I hope that makes more sense.

Thanks,

Hi Laura,

You can’t combine multiple events ticket into a single ticket selector if that’s what you mean?

I’m assuming you want the 3 instances of the ticket selector on that page combining into a single table, with headers between groups of tickets (like there is now) to allow for one table of selections? If so that’s not possible with multiple events.

You could combine the tickets into a single event but IIRC you’ve broken them out into different events to collect different questions based on the ticket type, is that correct?

I actually have the same questions for the Table Sponsorships as the Team purchases. I could probably combine these two if necessary, but the purchase of the sponsorship of items will only require the sponsor’s information, not information for the attendee.

Any thoughts?

Hi Laura,

Each ticket selector is actually an html form, and each form has its own submit button. These forms cannot be combined, so each one needs to have its own button.
