  • Multiple Registration: when the option “Prevent users from registering to the same event multiple times” is enabled, the registration form will be hidden from the user who has already completed the registration.
  • Disable this option if you want to allow visitors to register for the same events multiple times.

  • Duplicate email: if you enable the Duplicate email option, you can restrict people from registering with the same email id multiple times.
  • Organizer Email notification: An organizer will be notified with an email message as soon as a visitor registers for his event.

  • Send event registration mail notification: Here, a user can either send the registration confirmation mail to the event organizer or to the registrant’s email id. The user needs to choose in between these two options.

Advanced: Overriding/Customizing the templates

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

To override a template file, here are the steps you need to take:

  1. Create a directory “wp-event-manager-registrations” under your theme folder.
  2. Copy the template file to “/wp-content/yourtheme/wp-event-manager-registrations/” directory.
  3. Your theme will use all the template files from the “/wp-content/yourtheme/wp-event-manager-registrations/” directory instead of the plugin’s template file (/wp-content/plugins/wp-event-manager-registrations/).
  • event-registrations.php template file lists the user’s alerts.
  • registration-form.php template file which controls the alerts form display on events page.

Note: Our plugins get frequently updated. So if you override template files, you need to make sure that you sync the template file with the new plugin updates for better functionality.
