Wait List Full Indication

Currently if the waiting list is full, the button disappears but it doesn’t give any indication that the waiting list is full, it just looks like there isn’t one. Is there any way to have a message where the button was that says Waiting List Full? or something along those lines?

Hi there,

Currently we don’t display any messages stating the waitlist is full and one of the reasons for that is if the event is full and a waitlist is available, there’s an action the user can take (joining the wait list) but if thats also full, adding a message stating the waitlist is full is essentially the same as showing the event as sold out, which we already do.

However, it is possible to add your own custom message if the event has a waitlist set and no waitlist is available, to do that you can use a function like this:

Change the ‘Testing full waitlist message’ text to whatever you prefer to output and add that to a custom functions plugin on your site, we have some documentation on creating one here:

Thank you for the workaround. I’ll give it a try.

You’re most welcome.

Note that the output does not need to just be text, you can add your own HTML elements to that output if you prefer.
