Register Link Style

Hello again EE folk. Another question for you. I’ve had several people mention to me that they can’t figure out how to register for an event when they get to the event page. I’m using Event Posts to fuel Mailchimp RSS campaigns, so the links in those emails take users to the Post, and they can’t seem to be able to find the Register link easily.
I see that you do plan to offer jquery / themeroller styling to this link in 3.2, but that’s been in the works for a while. Is there a way to style the Register link so it’s more obvious?
My thought is to put it above the link to google maps, larger (h3?), and in a different color. Can this be done?

Hi Mike,

There are two buttons on the event post (one before and after the content) and they both have a class name of a_register_link. So if you apply some CSS3 styles to that class, you canmake that link look more button like. Here is some example code you can try by placing into a custom stylesheet or a child theme style.css file:

a.a_register_link {
   border-top: 1px solid #96d1f8;
   background: #65a9d7;
   padding: 5px 10px;
   -webkit-border-radius: 8px;
   -moz-border-radius: 8px;
   border-radius: 8px;
   -webkit-box-shadow: rgba(0,0,0,1) 0 1px 0;
   -moz-box-shadow: rgba(0,0,0,1) 0 1px 0;
   box-shadow: rgba(0,0,0,1) 0 1px 0;
   text-shadow: rgba(0,0,0,.4) 0 1px 0;
   color: white;
   font-size: 14px;
   font-family: Helvetica, Arial, Sans-Serif;
   text-decoration: none;
   vertical-align: middle;

a.a_register_link:hover {
   border-top-color: #28597a;
   background: #28597a;
   color: #ccc;
a.a_register_link :active {
   border-top-color: #1b435e;
   background: #1b435e;

The above style rules were adapted from Chris Coyier’s CSS button maker if you’d like to customize it further:

If you want to move the register links, that will require altering the event_post.php template. You’ll likely want to copy over the event_post.php template to /wp-content/uploads/espresso/templates. One thing to keep in mind if you do copy it over, you’ll need to keep it maintained when there are changes to the built in template in future versions of Event Espresso.
