Event Registration
[resolved] Event Registration: Bypassing Eliminating Confirming the Registration (5 posts)

    When users register to an event, they first must click the Submit button once they complete the registration form, and then they must click the Confirmed button on the next page (the confirmation page), otherwise, the registration is not complete.

    I created a draft Event and asked 15 of my colleagues to review it and provide feedback . What I discovered is only 4 out of the 15 have actually confirmed their registration. The rest just completed the registration form, clicked the Submit button and closed the browser thinking they completed their registration. Even though the confirmation paged was displayed, they did not think much about it and did not realize they needed to confirm their registration and simply closed the browser. Therefore, they actually never registered to the Event.

    Is it possible to eliminate the Confirmation page and just confirm the registration once the Submit button is clicked? Another option is to make it optional under the “Options” tab when creating the Event or make it a Global option for All events under Configure-> Page Config?
    If not, can you share with me which PHP file I can modify myself to meet our needs?

    Your help is greatly appreciated.

    The short answer is no it is designed this way for a reason. It has to do with entering multiple attendees. Perhaps you could change the Submit button text to Next> ?

    I'm not sure your group testing is all that valid in that they had no intentions of attending the event and were just trying to help you out during their busy day.

    All the files are in /Public

    I understand the reason behind it and I appreciate your response. I would like to try a dry run on changing the Label of the Submit button to Next. Where do I do that? What Stylesheet or which PHP file?

    You can change it in the language file if you're familiar with editing mo an po files or simply change it in the public/evr_public_form.php on about line 336 change the _e('Submit' at the end of the line .

    <input type="submit" name="mySubmit" id="mySubmit" disabled="true" value="<?php _e('Submit','evr_language');?>" />

    I made the change to the Submit button in the PHP file.

    Is there a way for me to edit the message on the confirmation page? where it states: Please verify your registration details

    I believe if I change it to states: Please verify and Confirm your registration details (or something like that). It will possibly get the user attention to read through and click the confirm button.

    P.S. Where is the language file located?
