I had this issue before and tech support in the thread linked above gave me a function that changed the text I needed brilliantly.. but now I’m noticing that it no longer is working.

Is there an updated function that I can add to my site specific plugin so I can change the text for events?

Here is my current function:
function mycustom_filter_gettext( $translated, $original, $domain ) {

// This is an array of original strings
// and what they should be replaced with
$strings = array(
‘The %1$s%2$s%3$s%4$s is available to members only. %5$s’ => ‘The %1$s%2$s%3$s%4$s is only available to registered scholars. Please log in.’,
// Add some more strings here
);

// See if the current string is in the $strings array
// If so, replace its translation
if ( isset( $strings[$original] ) ) {
// This accomplishes the same thing as __()
// but without running it through the filter again
$translations = get_translations_for_domain( $domain );
$translated = $translations->translate( $strings[$original] );
}

return $translated;
}

Hi there,

When posting code we recommend using something like pastebin.com or creating a gist to add the code to and post the url here, the forum alters the formatting of your code, for example single quotes like ' become which won’t work when used within PHP.

It could be the forum altering the formatting here but if you notice in my example here:

https://eventespresso.com/topic/wp-user-change-is-available-to-members-only/#post-180663

The original string has 2 spaces after %1$s%2$s%3$s%4$s, your code above does not. The original string must match exactly so I suspect that is why your function is not working. If I copy my original function it works fine on my test sites.

Also, there should be one more line of code after that which would be:

add_filter( 'gettext', 'mycustom_filter_gettext', 10, 3 );

I’m guessing that is actually there you just didn’t include it but wanted to make sure as it will not work without it.

Aha! I must have over-written the last line of code.. I added it back and it worked. Thank you again. You guys rock!

I was just asked today to change the text where it reads: “Goes on Sale”.. to “Will be Available”
One can see the Goes on Sale text here for example:
http://carrickinstitute.com/events/907-908-washington-2016/

Can I please have a script to change that text as well please?

You can translate multiple strings within that same function, the strings are added to an array and the function loops over all of them, so it currently has:

$strings = array(
        'The %1$s%2$s%3$s%4$s  is available to members only. %5$s' => 'The %1$s%2$s%3$s%4$s  is only available to registered scholars. %5$s',
        // Add some more strings here
);

You can change that to:

$strings = array(
		'The %1$s%2$s%3$s%4$s  is available to members only. %5$s' => 'The %1$s%2$s%3$s%4$s  is only available to registered scholars. %5$s',
		'Goes On Sale' => 'Will be Available',
		// Add some more strings here
);

That will translate both the strings for you.

Worked perfectly again. Thanks again for your help on this.. I’m PHP illiterate, so your help is very greatly appreciated!

Hi Freddys,

Did you have any other questions about changing the messaging/verbiage that is used in Event Espresso?

Thanks
