However dollars are being displayed
A further issue is with shortcodes
When I use Chrome to “inspect element”, I can see that the shortcode
Regarding dollars showing rather than pounds – this was because I hadn’t set country in
– there’s still the shortcode issue however
What you’ve done here, is set the US to use GBP and I can tell that from the fact that the US states are loading on the right.
The screen you are on (Event Espresso -> General Settings -> Countries) allows you to set the settings for each specific country. So if you go to the above and select United Kingdom (if you’ve set your address correct in general settings it will be selected by default) you’ll see it has the currency settings set to what we expect in the UK.
However, if you now select the United States in the dropdown at the top, on your site it will likely also show GBP settings for that country. Each individual country you select in the dropdown can have the settings changes in that section, it’s to allow for control various currency settings in each country in case it’s needed (for example if the currency used changed etc).
I recommend your change the settings for the US back to Dollars, note that changing the settings after selecting the United States in the dropdown at the top will NOT change the settings for the UK.
That tells EE which country you are using and it uses the settings specifically for that country mentioned above. It’s the correct fix for this, but I still recommend you fix the currency settings for the US.
If you open up Chrome Dev Tools and look in the Console you’ll see:
The above was a breaking change in jQuery 2.2.4 onwards and has caused that same error in man plugins.
