Hi

Sorry I’ve searched but cant find a solution on how to show the event START – END DATES on the registration form next to the ticket details. I’m having to add the dates to the ticket name to get them showing which isn’t ideal πŸ™‚

Any solutions?

Also any idea how much longer the Event reminder emails will be in beta testing… getting close yet?

thank you

Hi jacl,

You can add the start and end dates just below the ticket details on the registration form by adding some PHP code to a custom template. Here’s a step by step how to:

1) You copy over the attendee_info_main.template.php file from the Event Espresso plugin into your activated WP theme. We recommend using a child theme for adding customizations. The file is located in the /modules/single_page_checkout/reg_steps/attendee_information/ folder.
2) You make the following edit: After line 42, which has this:
<?php echo $ticket_line_item[ $registration->ticket()->ID() ]; ?>
You add this:

<?php 
$datetimes = array();
$datetimes = $registration->ticket()->datetimes();
foreach ($datetimes as $datetime) {
	echo '<tr><td colspan=1><strong>Start:</strong> ';
	echo $datetime->get_date('DTT_EVT_start') . '</td>';
	echo '<td colspan=3><strong>End:</strong> ';
	echo $datetime->get_date('DTT_EVT_end') . '</td></tr>';
}
?>

3) Then you save the file.

The above changes will result in something that looks like this:

Not close. There was quite a bit of negative feedback given from testers so it’s back to get reworked.

Thanks so much for the guidance on adding dates to the reg form.

Works perfectly πŸ™‚

That’s a shame about the event reminders…. do you think we are talking weeks, months or worse?

I don’t have a timeframe on the event reminders add-on.

You’re invited to download the beta, try it out, and let us know what you think of it. There’s information about how to download it in this blog post:
