Multiple events, one click registration and hide price

Hello !

1. We have two different events – Event A and Event B. Certain VIP guests will get invitation to both the events, and others will get invitation to only one event. What we want is, a checkbox for the VIP guests that lets them select one, or both events, and then click Register, and then let them enter their user-information. I did take a look at the multiple event plugin, but the whole ‘Event Cart’ concept feels a little distracting for our guests. Both the events are free, and we only want to allow one ticket per registration.

2. We want to customize how the ticket selector is displayed. We only want to display ticket-name. Our quantity is always 1, and our tickets are always free, so we want to not show quantity, and price.

I do realize that out of the box, we will not get these. But can you please point me to a direction where I should start customizing ? A theme would be enough, or where should I start customizing the code .. ?

Hi there,

Regarding item 1: If there are 2 separate events and you want to offer registration for both events without using Multi Event Registration, then what you could do is set up individual datetimes with associated tickets, for each of the events, but put it all within one event. Then you set up one “VIP both events” ticket can grant access for both datetimes. You can follow this code example to hide the VIP tickets and have them displayed on both pages:

With regards to customizing how the ticket selector is displayed, the recommended way is add CSS to your site’s custom stylesheet. For example, the following CSS can be added to hide the price column:

.tckt-slctr-tbl-td-price,
.ee-ticket-selector-ticket-price-th {
display:none;
}

Hi Josh,

Thanks for the reply.

Item # 2 – works, and I am able to hide the price.

For Item # 1, the ticket selector shows a drop-down of quantities. I want it to be 2 checkboxes. I tried limiting the quantity per ticket to 1, and that shows up as 2 radio-buttons, but they are exclusive-or, and can not be selected both at the same time .. ?

I’m afraid that checkboxes aren’t actually an input option for the ticket selector. If they’re radio buttons that means you probably set the “Maximum number of tickets allowed per order for this event:” option to 1. That will actually limit the total number of tickets for the event to 1.

It sounds like you want the quantity per ticket to 1, and that can be set in the Advanced ticket options section (you click on the gear icon to open the Advanced options). You’ll set the Maximum Quantity field there to 1.

Yes, setting the maximum quantity field to 1 fixed it for me. Thanks !
