How can Non-Members register for an event without them having to sign in to anything?

4.10.22.p We want to use Promotion Codes and not have anyone have to log in. When Non-Members register, they get an email requesting that they create a password. How do we stop that?

Hi there!

Thanks for contacting us!
We have noticed you have our WP User Integration add-on that allows you to prevent creating a new user on each registration.

Let us know if you have any further questions!

Where is this located?

Hi there,

My apologies for the delayed reply here, the above is from the WP user integration add-on and those options are shown within the event editor for each individual event.

So when you edit the event itself it usually shows in the sidebar: https://monosnap.com/file/cstfMgZnfB65pvqs6n0Ym6cAlLCbub

The exact location can change as it’s a drag and drop item on the page so can be moved around.

I’ve also replied to your email regarding this if you prefer to follow up using that, either is fine.

Tony,
I just did a test registrations and it sent me an email asking me to set my password and login. We want people to register for our events, but we don’t want them to have a login. We still want to capture their info, but they shouldn’t have to log in to register for a meeting.

Email said:
To set your password, visit the following address:

Tony, for the “User Integration Settings” We have the first one “NO” and the Second one “YES” Is this correct for what we are trying to accomplish, or should we have the second one “NO”.

I just want to make sure we are capturing people’s registration info, (Name, Email, Company) but not forcing them to create a login.

The first option says your users must be logged in to register onto an event.

The second option uses the registration data to automatically create a user account when they register.

Sounds like for you both of those options should be set to No.

What about people that are already have website logins? Is there a way to remove those people from having logins? We still want to keep their information that they registered for the event, but we don’t want anyone to have to log in.

Hi there!

Thanks for getting back to us!
Users already created with access to your Dashboard can’t be reverted. It will be applied just for new event registrations.

Let us know if you have any further questions!

Can’t we just delete users? Then change the Auto-Create Users to NO. Then the next time they register, it just registers them without having to login. Am I getting that wrong? What is the purpose of having someone log in to the website?
We want to streamline people’s registration to our monthly events, but we don’t want to force them have to remember another meaningless set of credentials.

Are there other things tied to that login like mailing list? Or is it a authentication thing? Keep in mind, these are not members. Just attendees. Members are the only people that need logins.

If you don’t want to force users to log in, don’t want to create users from registrations and don’t want to require users to log in if they already have an account, do you need the functionality of the WP user integration add-on?

Are you using any of the other features from that add-on?

The reason users are forced to log in is to keep their registrations linked to their user account so they show up when using the [ESPRESSO_MY_EVENTS] shortcode.

It is possible to disable the check for an existing user and still keep the add-on, for that you need to add a snippet of code to the site. You need the bottom snippet from here:

https://gist.github.com/joshfeck/1131145859a3fab58f4d#file-disable_email_match_everyone-php

So just adding:


add_filter( 'EED_WP_Users_SPCO__verify_user_access__perform_email_user_match_check', '__return_false' );

You can add that to a custom functions plugin on your site, we have some documentation on creating one here:
