Problems with Event Expresso and Event Espresso – Permissions

Wordpress 3.4.1
Event Expresso 3.1.36.P
Event Expresso – Permissions 1.5.5.p

New installation

As the WP administrator, I created a series of questions and question groups. All of the questions are marked “no” for admin only.

I have two users set up as Event Expresso Admins with all privileges. However, when they create/edit an event, they cannot see the question groups that have been created.

Hi Sri,

It turns out that this is a feature of the Permissions add-on. It makes it so each event admin has their own set of questions. As an aside, the admin only question option lets you create questions that do not display on the front end registration form so that event admins can enter notes about registrations. It does not make it so a question can be used by another admin account if Roles and Permissions is installed.

Is there a way to let other admins see the question groups? As their consultant, I created the question groups for them and now want them to be able to use them as Event Administrators.

Is there a workaround? Or will they have to create their own question groups from the questions I created?

Theres a filter in place to allow this to be disabled.

create the file custom_functions.php

Within that paste this


remove_filter( 'espresso_get_question_groups_for_event_where', espresso_rp_basic_get_question_groups_for_event_where, 10 );

add_filter('espresso_get_question_groups_for_event_where', 'custom_espresso_get_question_groups_for_event_where', 10, 3);
function custom_espresso_get_question_groups_for_event_where($where, $existing_question_groups, $event) {
    return '';

Then place that file within /wp-content/uploads/espresso/

All users should then see your question groups.
