Remove Start Date and Start Time from Registration Page

Hi, how do we remove the start date and start time info from our page:

Obviously the information is generated randomly but we don’t want it to appear – our event is ongoing and doesn’t stop or start…

Many thanks

Add the following to the stylesheet of the active WordPress theme:

p.start_date, p.event_time {display:none;}

Alternatively, I recommend using the My custom CSS plugin for making edits like this.

Many thanks. And is there also a way to remove the same information of the registration summary email?

Thank you

To clarify, that’s the email that gets sent to the admin?

The emails that get sent to the registrants are customized in the email editors, so if there is date/time information in these emails, simply remove the shortcodes from the editor.

If you need to modify the admin email, there’s a function in the core plugin that you’d have to modify:
In /functions/email.php, there’s a function that’s named espresso_prepare_admin_email. This function has the date time info coded in. The downside to modifying that function is it will get overwritten on an update.

I’m using the the option to create a post when I create an event – I add a category so that I can query posts of that category to display on my homepage – when it links from the homepage (via the_permalin() ) it goes to the Events REgistion page where I have the short code [ESPRESSO_EVENTS] – the event displays in the template I’ve created for this page – I guess the short code bundles the event data into the the_content() function –

So where do I customize this content? Specifically I need to add the event start time, everything else I need seems to be there…

Here is my homepage
Events are listed in the lower left corner (only two at a time)

Here is one of the events I created where I’d like to add the start time of the event:
