    For overriding or customization, template files can be found in the wp-event-manager-sell-tickets/templates/ directory.

    To override a template file, follow the below-mentioned steps:

    1. Create directory “wp-event-manager-colors” under your theme folder.
    2. Copy the template file to “/wp-content/yourtheme/wp-event-manager-colors/” directory.
    3. Your theme will now use all the template files from the “/wp-content/yourtheme/wp-event-manager-colors/” directory instead of the plugin’s template file (/wp-content/plugins/wp-event-manager-colors/).

    Remember: If you have an overridden template file and plugin frequently updating then you need to sync template file with new updates from the plugin’s template file for better functionality and new features.
