We are offering a variety of virtual events (Zoom, WebEx, Vimeo videos etc.) In your virtual events wiki (https://eventespresso.com/wiki/tips-hosting-virtual-events/), you describe sending links to the Virtual Events by using Venue > Virtual URL field and [VIRTUAL_URL] shortcode in message notifications to send registrants a link to the virtual event.

Problem: Using [VIRTUAL_URL] shortcode in message notifications to send registrants a link to the virtual event would require a venue be setup for each virtual event. Is there a better solution or add-on to send registrants an external event url and that can be specified in the event editor? Such as Alternative Registration Page field? What is [display_html_url] shortcode?

Hi there,

Rather than using the VIRTUAL_URL for this, I recommend using a custom field on the event and just pulling the value for those into the message templates when needed.

I’ve posted how to do this previously so rather than rety it here I’ll like to the previous post:

Does that help? I’m more than happy to add more details for any of the steps if needed.
