how to show event times on the events list [first page] before clicking “register”

the event times now show, but there is a “question mark” icon between the times that I can’t remove. Any ideas?

Hello Rebecca,

The ? in a diamond symbol is the browser telling you that there is a character (letter etc) there that cannot be shown correctly, this is normally due to a foreign character (öäå etc) that isnt available in the font.

So if you have modified the templates in anyway I would double check what you have entered in case there is a wrong character added.

Hi Dean, we took the code to show event times from your website: Can’t find the foreign character, can you?

<p id="event_time-start-“>Start time:  <p id="event_time-end-“>End time:

Hi Rebecca,

Here is some code I’ve used in the past to show starrt to end times on the event list:

<p id="event_time-<?php echo $event_id ?>"><span class="section-title"><?php _e('Time:', 'event_espresso'); ?></span>  <?php echo do_shortcode ('[EVENT_TIME event_id="'.$event_id.'" type="start_time" format="g:i a"]') .' - '. do_shortcode ('[EVENT_TIME event_id="'.$event_id.'" type="end_time" format="g:i a"]'); ?></p>

Hi Josh, your code also shows the “question mark on event registration.” And I didn’t see any foreign characters in your code either. Any help?

Josh I got someone to fix the question mark issue. Could you please help with the rectangular and empty white box with slight gray border that shows up on event registration page next to the price?

Never mind, Josh, we found it. Just needed to hire a “detective” web code person. Thanks for all!
