Hi Crew

I need to remove this text from the page which shows when a bookings registration date has passed

Please contact us if you would like to know if spaces are still available

Custom CSS solution welcome! I can change the php but want to avoid loosing my changes via updates

Hmmm my first response seems to have failed so hopefully this wont be a duplicate.

There are a few options:


.event_full:last-child {

Note that this will not work on older IE browsers 8 and earlier i think.


This guide might be ok but the strings are probably broken up meaning it may be difficult to find the individual bits –

This function is probably better –

Hi Dean

Thank you that worked!

Can either remove the remaining text (“We are sorry but this event is not yet open for registration”) or replace it with “Please contact us to register”

Thanks mate

Similarly, I would like to have it display the event information but remove the registration button and replace it with a similar message.

hate to tack on, but there are so many topics about this issue.

Hi folks,

You can customize the templates however you wish. We provide them as a starting point, and you’re more than welcome to customize them to meet your specific needs. You can open the registration page templates in your text editor to make your desired customizations. They are located in the event-espresso plugin’s /templates directory and are named registration_page.php and registration_page_display.php.

Once your are happy with your customizations, you can copy both of these files over to /wp-content/uploads/espresso/templates to keep them from being overwritten the next time you update.

Thanks Josh

Hopefully your team can look towards making these kind of adjustments more user friendly. I can go into code and stuff, but I’m not comfortable with it and frankly I’m paying for premium to not have to do that! Custom CSS is always cool. Understand you guys are looking for the balance but I reckon you could still come closer to the client on this scale

Thanks for your time and all the best
