I have the waiting list plug in, when my events are full it shows sold out, is there a way t change that wording to ‘sold out, waiting list” or ‘waiting list’ something so they know they can click full and get to the waitlist?

Hi there,

It depends on which output you are viewing.

Can you link me to the page you are referring to above where it shows the event as sold out?

https://cellbotics.com/cell-phone-repair-courses-all-schedules/ I have thought of switching to the calendar view with images would that show Waitlist? RIght now we use Table view, which I like just which they knew they could click it and get a waitlist

If you are sticking with the table view template it has a sold_out_button_text parameter you can use to change the text on the fly:

sold_out_button_text='sold out, waiting list'

Would set the sold out text to the above.

So your shortcode would be:

[ESPRESSO_EVENTS_TABLE_TEMPLATE sold_out_button_text='sold out, waiting list']

Is that what you are looking for?

You’re already using it on this page: https://cellbotics.com/cell-phone-repair-courses-all-schedules/

So find the shortcode used there and add the above to it

This is my current code [ESPRESSO_EVENTS_TABLE_TEMPLATE show_all_datetimes=true]

so I would do this?

[ESPRESSO_EVENTS_TABLE_TEMPLATE show_all_datetimes=true][ESPRESSO_EVENTS_TABLE_TEMPLATE sold_out_button_text=’sold out, waiting list’]

or how do I combine them?

I figured it out

This is a short code from another page where I only show a certain course, how would I add it in there?

[ESPRESSO_EVENTS_TABLE_TEMPLATE order_by=start_date limit=7 category_filter=false table_search=false category_slug=device-master template_file=espresso-events-table-template-toggle.template.php reg_button_text=Register]

Great, I’m glad you figured it out ๐Ÿ™‚

Just for any future readers, you combine them like this:

[ESPRESSO_EVENTS_TABLE_TEMPLATE show_all_datetimes=true sold_out_button_text='sold out, waiting list']

I replied above whilst you were adding your last reply, for that you’ll use:

[ESPRESSO_EVENTS_TABLE_TEMPLATE order_by=start_date limit=7 category_filter=false table_search=false category_slug=device-master template_file=espresso-events-table-template-toggle.template.php reg_button_text=Register sold_out_button_text='sold out, waiting list']

After I did this, the waitlist doesnt seem to show anywhere on the event, look at this page https://cellbotics.com/events/cpr-dec-6-21/ this event have waitlist set to 10, no on automatic and, 0 manually controlled spaces but you can see there is no where to enter them to the waitlist… am I doing something wrong? It was working

Hi there,

On the frontend if you view the event you’ll see this message:

Note to Event Admin:
The “Maximum number of tickets allowed per order for this event” in the Event Registration Options has been set to “0”. This effectively turns off ticket sales. (click to edit this event)

You need to update the ‘Maximum number of tickets allowed per order for this event:’ setting in that event to be anything other than 0, the default is 10.

Updating that setting will not ‘open’ your event for normal registrations but setting it to 0 basically disabled the ticket sales (including waitlist registrations).
