Need to disable all but one event

Due to the COVID-19 situation we are rescheduling our entire show. I need to prevent people from registering from any of the several dozen events in our show but not from the show itself. I thought a quick and dirty solution would be to update a display ticket selector field on all but that one event, but I am unclear where to find that field. Is this a good solution? If not, what is better way to handle? If so, where do I find the field?

Yes that’s a good solution. The “Display Ticket Selector” setting is in the “Event Registrations Options” metabox within the event’s editor.

Yes, thank you. Unfortunately, I am trying to avoid manually changing almost 100 events. So I was hoping this was tied to a binary in the database that I could flip for all events instead. I could then turn it back on for our overall registration event. I could of course try and see if I could suppress it via CSS, but then I wouldn’t be able to allow registration for our show. Does that make sense?

If you’re looking in the database tables, you’ll look in the _esp_event_meta table. The field that controls the ticket selector display is EVT_display_ticket_selector. You can change each of those to 0 (zero). Then you can update the event you want to stay open.

Thank you! Worked like a charm.
