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

Remember: If you have 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.
