From researching all the topics/replies in the support forum I still have a hard time finding current methods to modify the basics to my client’s needs. There are quite a few questions submitted regarding CSS and Themes. Most common things people change are CSS and template files. I have copied the following templates and CSS file, made my changes, and saved in my theme folder:


where do I put these files so they overwrite the core?

This will solve most of my future support requests.

Please and thank you, Ryan

Hi there,

I am Joao from the support team! Thanks for contacting us.
We are sorry for delaying to reply.

The first step to override files is to create a child theme, have you already created one? If so, you need to paste the modified files following the same path to which they belong, for example:

invoice_header.template.php it’s under modules/gateways/Invoice/lib/templates/ – so you will need to create the respective folders under your child theme and paste the modified file there to override it correctly.

Regarding the CSS file, it’s not necessary to create the same CSS file, you can create the style.css and put your CSS styles there to override the Event Espresso ones.

Let me know if it helps!
