I want to make my event a custom post type but there isn’t a choice in the “create event” -> “create a post” box; just “create a post y/n”, author, tags, categories. I do have a CPT defined. Any ideas?

Also, how do I change the text on the buttons? (Buy tickets rather than Register)

(using Custom Post Type UI plugin to create my post types)

Head over to Event Espresso>Template settings and activate the custom post types feature.

Please note that there is an Event Espresso function that defines the event post type, so the CPT you’ve defined with the other plugin will not work.

To change the slug you would need to modify ‘rewrite’ parameter in the register_post_type that Event Espresso is using. The post type is registered in /includes/admin-files/custom_post_type.php but I wouldn’t recommend modifying the core or you won’t be able to upgrade without having to change that every time. You might be able to override the function if you are using the custom files add-on.
