Separate Pages for Different Categories

Hi All,

I have the Event Espresso Lite version (free) installed so I can try out Event Espresso for managing our training course registration. I plan to purchase the Business license.

As of today, our marketing team is also interested in Event Espresso for conference registration management. Ideally, the website users would navigate to the Marketing Events page and see marketing events only. Users would navigate to the Training page and see training events only.

I know how to accomplish that. But I know that each department will want different auto-responses, and will not want to share calendars. We want the information to be separate on the customer website, and customized to the types of events we are offering. It seems a bit sticky to try to use the same license. Does anyone else have experience with this dual use of a single license? Would we be better off moving the training to its own domain and using a separate license?

Sorry, I meant to change the title of this post.

Hi Heather,

I think you could put both on the same site, the calendar has a category filter so you could have two different pages to display events for each department. The pro version also lets you set up custom registration notification templates that can be set to be used for specific events too.

A few things you’ll gain from having it on two different sites is a clear separation for managing the payments and attendee records. There’s probably pro’s and con’s for having two installations vs one installation.

One point that might help make things a bit more clear: Event Espresso is licensed under the GPL so you can run it on as many sites as you’d like with one license. With that said, we can only support one of the sites, and the 1-click software updates will only work on the site that is tied to the support license.

Hi Josh,

Thanks so much for the information. Based on that response, I think we’ll install it on one site and see how it goes. Worst case, we completely separate the sites.

Thank you for the fast response!
