Want event listed but don't want to allow tickets to be sold on website

Hello,
I have been asked to list events and use the functions of adding the day, time and place of the event through Event Espresso but want to de-active (not allow people to buy anything through the website). How can I use this without the “add to event cart” button appearing (don’t really need price or qty here either). As tickets for seminars will be sold on a convention’s site and not ours.

Thanks for the help

Hi there,

There’s a few options depending on how you want it to work but within each event is an ‘Alternative Registration Page’ field, if you add the URL of the ‘event’ or whichever location you want the user to be directed to EE will direct the users to that page.

The ticket selector will change to just a ‘Register Now’ button and when clicked the user is directed to the URL you set.

Will that work for you?

Note you need the full URL in that field, e.g https://google.com

Where do I find the “Alternative Registration Page” field?

I have found it now actually but now the view details button on the page prior to the event (the upcoming event listings) goes direct to the linked page instead of the write-up on our next page (unless clicked on the title and not the view details button). Is there any way around that?

In that case, you wouldn’t use the Alternative Registration Page option and instead set the “Display Ticket Selector” option to “No”.

Oh! One last question, we are going to leave the view details button on (linking to the external registration page) but I can’t seem to find an option for it to open in a new window instead of in the same one, can you point me to where I might be able to adjust that?

Yes, there is a filter to enable a target_blank attribute on the button.

You’ll need something like this:

You can add that to a custom functions plugin on your site, we have some documentation on creating one here:
