Not sure what to search for on this, so here goes.

Is there a way to change the order of how a registration page orders the info it presents. So I have

How can I make Date first, or above Description? How can you adjust that type of stuff?

It would involve editing the registration_page_display.php template to re-arrange these. In this instance, you’d move this block of code to the point right before the code that displays the event description:

<p class="start_date">
        <?php if ($end_date !== $start_date) { ?>
        <span class="section-title">
        <?php _e('Start Date: ', 'event_espresso'); ?>
        <?php } else { ?>
        <span class="section-title">
        <?php _e('Date: ', 'event_espresso'); ?>
    echo event_date_display($start_date, get_option('date_format'));
    if ($end_date !== $start_date) {
        echo '<br />';
        <span class="section-title">
        <?php _e('End Date: ', 'event_espresso'); ?>
        </span> <?php echo event_date_display($end_date, get_option('date_format'));
    } ?>

Please see this guide that explains how to copy customized templates to the /wp-content/uploads/espresso/templates directory so these do not get overwritten on an update:

Thanks, I’ll see if I can do that.

Another question if I can. Automatically, it shows the Venue Address/Info under description, but by default it does not show the Venue Name, just the info. I had to add the following in my Description to get the Venue Name to show and then hide the double info, and that seemed to be good for me.

[ESPRESSO_VENUE  show_address = “false”  show_map_image = “false”]

I was doing a test Registration and in my confirmation e-mail, it is also missing the Venue name when it confirms the event.

I just get:

131 Summer Street?
Boyden Hall Quad?
Bridgewater, MA 02325

So how can you show the Venue Name in both parts? I would think it should show that be default? Thanks in advance for your help.

There was a bug in an older version of Event Espresso where the venue name was missing in the email notification. Which version number of Event Espresso do you have installed right now?

I have 3.1.25.P on WP 3.4.1, newly purchased a few weeks ago

It’s missing on event pages and the e-mails

Are you using the venue manager option or the older method of entering venue info in for each event?

I have it setup in Venue manager, and I only have 1 venue. It has a name that I can select when choosing venue while setting up an event.

Use the [venue_title] and [venue_address] shortcodes in the email.

You can disable the address from displaying on the registration form in Event Espresso>Template settings and use the [ESPRESSO_VENUE] shortcode instead.

I did do that on the registration page, so it is a work around. Hopefully it will be fixed in the next version. Thanks for all your help!

Not sure what you mean by fixed in the next version. They are two different features that shouldn’t be used at the same time.
