    yes, try Start/End date of ticket availability under Bookings/Registration -ticket form

    thank you. is it possible to add automatically this deadline to all bookings?


    You could if you hooked into the action that saves each event, yes, although that would require some custom coding to achieve.


    which template file could i edit for it?

    You’d need to edit this template to display the deadline on the page for each event:

    See the tutorial on using templates here:

    To actually stop people booking tickets after the deadline, you’d need to need to create code that adds a filter to the booking process add prevents orders being placed after a certain date.

    That said, if you all you want to do is stop taking bookings after an event has started, that’s the default setting for the Booking Cut-Off Date of each event.

    thank you – i will have a look on this template.

    for avoiding any missunderstandings: i do not want to use the default setting of cut off –> any bookings should not work on the whole events starting day.

    You mean if an event is set to start at 10am tickets should not be on sale from midnight that day / morning?

    yes! this would be nice..

    You’d need to hook into the em_event filter in classes/em-event.php and modify $EM_Event->event_rsvp_time so it = 12:00 AM

    it requires php so you may need to hire a programmer to help you.

    thank you. i think i can get it by myself. what means event_rsvp_time?
    i have created template file called “single-event.php”. i think in this template i can define this function as a normally comparison with event start date and todays date. its a pitty, i thought that i can manage this with em-templates at last. but thank you for your hints. great support! 🙂

    ok, thank you!
    here my solution in theme_folder/plugins/events-manager/templates/templates/events-single.php

    <?php /*Begin*/
    $today = date('d-m-Y');
    $eventday = $EM_Event->output("#d-#m-#Y");
    if ($today!==$eventday)
    echo $EM_Event->output("{has_bookings}<h2>Bookings:</h2>#_BOOKINGFORM{/has_bookings}");

    actually, you’d not do this with a template, you could probably put it in your theme’s functions.php file, see here for info on where to paste snippets:
