I need to change the word “ticket” to “registration” everywhere in Event Espresso 4. I’ve found fragments of suggestions all through the forums, but I was wondering if someone could just consolidate all that info into one area here for all of us who want to change the word “ticket” to something else. This seems to be an significant need for many users. Thanks!

I needed the same thing and found the answer in these forums. There are a couple of options but I edited my functions.php file and pasted in some code. Here is a link to the thread. It bassically changes the wording in various places there it mentions ticket. I wish there was an easier way in the interface.

Hawkman- Wow, how timely! I also need to do this but the link didn’t seem to show up in your comment above. Can you re-post the link? Thank-you.

Not sure why the link was stripped out.. Here you go
The code is here that you add to your functions.php file

A string that talks about it is here.

If you scroll down to the section “Or you can add a custom function to your theme’s functions.php file…” this is what I did.

I also am learning that many instances of the word “ticket” can be changed by editing the Messages.

Yes, all the emails that get sent out need to be edited. You have to do those manually. I also removed all the Google+ and Twitter links from them since I dont use those.

Thanks Hawkman!

Also see here: http://eventespresso.com/wiki/how-to-change-wording-with-poedit/

That article offers two ways: Poedit and a function.

I ended up using a combination of all the methods suggested, but the most impact in making the change from “ticket” to “registration” came from the simple task of modifying the messages. The functions.php changes helped, too, and although I did the PO/MO file edits and uploaded them to the language files, I’m not sure that actually changed anything. I guess my suggestion would be to combine the functions.php additions and the careful editing of the messages templates.

Thanks Rosemary.

Generally if the number of strings that need changing is large (not the number of times they appear, but the number of different strings), then go with Poedit, otherwise the function works great.
