Promo code explanatory note

I’d like to put a different explanatory note above the promo code field on the booking form depending on which event is being booked, is that possible? Second question, where do I go about changing this note? I made such a note last year but for the life of me can’t figure out now how to modify it.

Hi there,

Currently we don’t have an option to change the text per event, however the note you are referring to was never actually a note, the original string for that section is simply ‘Promotion Code’ and is the label for the promotion code input.

There are a few ways in which you may have edited that section using PHP, you may have used the filter:


Or used a function to translate the string using a gettext file such as:

Only the string you would have been targeting would be just 'Promotion Code'

It’s also possible you edited the promotions add-on code directly (which we advise against).

Start by checking your theme’s functions.php for anything related to ‘promotion’, then check if you have a custom functions plugin installed to hold custom functions, again search that for anything related to ‘promotion’.

Ah yes, the custom functions plugin, that’s where I had inserted that code (which I think I found via the support forums last year). Thanks for pointing me in the right direction! It was very useful to be able to add a custom label there.
