Remove "Available Spaces" from Register page

I would like to remove the section on the registration page that says: “Available Spaces: Unlimited”

I don’t want to show that information at all. How can I remove it?
Thank you

If the WordPress theme that you have installed has a custom css section in the theme options, you can copy this code there:

p.spaces-available {display:none;}

Some themes also have a custom CSS file or instructions on how to create a child theme. Check the WP theme’s documentation for this info.

Alternatively, you could use the my custom CSS plugin plugin to make the above change.

Is there a quick way we could rename “available spaces” to “available space(s)”.

It will show “1 available spaces” if there balance space is 1.

Thanks in advance ๐Ÿ™‚

Hi Tooedge,

You can edit the file event_list_display.php (event-espresso/templates/) around line 106.

It doesn’t seem to work if you move the file to the custom folder so as with any core file change you need to know that it will revert back on update and its at your own risk.

Thanks for the quick reply and advise on future updates..

I have tried updating but it still shows “1 available spaces” on the site..

Am I updating the wrong thing?

//Social media buttons
do_action('espresso_social_display_buttons', $event_id);

$num_attendees = get_number_of_attendees_reg_limit($event_id, 'num_attendees'); //Get the number of attendees. Please visit for available parameters for the get_number_of_attendees_reg_limit() function.
if ($num_attendees >= $reg_limit) {
    <p id="available_spaces-"> 

        &lt;p id=&quot;register_link-" class="register-link-footer"&gt;&lt;a class=&quot;a_register_link&quot; id=&quot;a_register_link-" href="" title=""&gt;</a>
                    &lt;p id=&quot;available_spaces-" class="spaces-available"&gt;

The simplest way of doing this is editing the language files and defining your WP_LANG in wp-config.php to be en_US. Otherwise, you may need to hack core to change that. In 3.2 I think we do a better job of plural forms (at least, when I asked our lead developer if we were using plural forms, he said yes, and there are no plural forms whatsoever in 3.1.x).

Thanks for your reply and suggestion Chris..

Tried using langs but still does not work..

Any other suggestions?

Hi guys,

Is there anyone here that could kindly assist on this matter…

Seems silly that it shows 1 Available SPACES…

I have even tried WP_Lang at WP-Config but without luck.. ๐Ÿ™

Any help is greatly appreciated..

Did you also edit the language file after changing your WP_LANG?
You need to make sure the language file is actually being recognized, which it may not be if WordPress doesn’t realize you are using language files. You may also need to add a /languages/ folder in your /wp-content directory so WordPress understands that you are using localized files. Then edit the event_espresso-en_US.po file in Poedit or a text editor, changing the “Available Spaces” to whatever you want it to be instead (I don’t recommend using a text editor and doing it by hand — to easy to break it and make it unusable. Better to just use Poedit).
