Multiple day event : different times

Hi. How can I create an event that runs over 3 days, with different times on each day? I tried to add the start date and end date, and created 3 times, but now it’s asking the user to choose a time. The times should not be optional, it’s a 3 day course.

Hi Jennifer,

The best way to do this would be to simply add the times to the description. Reason being is the times as you discovered will become a choice for the user.

Another way to do it which is slightly more in depth would be to create 3 events, one for each day with the appropriate times.

Then for day two and three, change the “Alternate Registration Page (optional)” option found in the event itself to the URL of the first event.

What this will do is list 3 events on the event list and calendar, but when you click event 2 and 3 it will send you to event 1 so from an admin point of view there is only one event being registered for.

Thanks Dean. Option 1 is the better one, as the person using it needs the simplest possible way of doing things. However, if I add the times to the description, the start time and end time for the first date are displayed and it looks a bit confusing. Is there any way to hide the start and end time for one event only?

Hi Jennifer,

This can be done with some CSS.

To remove the date from the registration page

#espresso-event-id-X .event_time { display:none; }

To remove the date from the event list page for a specific event

#event_date-X { display:none; }

Note that the X should be replaced with the numerical ID of the event (not the unique identifier!) if you look at the event overview you can find this ID on the left hand side of the event.
