I have events that I have enabled promo codes for and the field to enter a promo code is not there. I am up to date on you event espresso version. I have promo codes enabled for the first two camps.

We removed the coupon code system form the Multi Event Registration at one point in time because the system will allow you to enter the discount code for all events and discount all events in the cart. We are however working on changing this behavior so that it only discounts the events that have the specific code that was entered.

If you would like to turn it on for your site, please open the event-espresso/templates/shopping_cart.php in your code editor and find the code around line #90 that looks like this:

Remove the <?php /*?> and <?php */?>

So it should look like this:

Once the changes are done. You should copy the file to the /wp-content/uploads/espresso/templates/ directory on your server.

Hi Seth-
I made the change but it is not working. I really don’t know PHP so I probably messed something up. Can I email you my login/password so you can check it out? Thank you!

Hi Seth, may I do the same? I need to enable coupon code for cart and know nothing about PHP…

Hi Christine and Daniel,

Since this will require us to get ftp access to your server to modify those files, we will need you to purchase a support token and give us the ftp details for your server.
