We are looking to customize Event Espresso Templates
The support article at is not up to date.

It states:
Core Templates
The way Event Espresso allows customization is via templates. By default these are found in plugins/event-espresso/templates.

However we have no such pathname
We have wp-content/plugins/event-espresso-core-reg
there is no template directory

Hi Charles,

The documentation you linked to is for EE3, you’ll notice the breadcrumbs show ‘EE3 Docs’, as your using EE4 that documentation does not apply.

Documentation for EE4 can be found here:

With a section specifically for EE4 Templates here:

EE4 works differently to EE3 as the events are custom post types so a lot of the output is actually done through your theme templates and EE just hooks into the_content() to add the event details. At that point it loads the templates from within /event-espresso-core-reg/public/Espresso_Arabica_2014/ for each of the individual detail sections (please don’t modify the templates there, you can copy the template you want to edit from that location into your themes root directory and EE will use that file in its place)

You can also take over the event details output completely using your themes template files but it really depends on what your looking to do. If you can provide further details on the customizations you are trying to make we can help point you in the right direction.
