[Resolved] [Plugin: Events Manager] Booking placeholders not working in mail

  • I have a problem since upgrading to version5:

    In the emails all booking related placeholders are no longer replaced with the actual values. Event related placeholders work fine, though.

    For example, an email might look like:

    Thank you for booking our event “Great Event Title”
    that takes place on January 18,2012
    You were using the email adress #_BOOKINGEMAIL

    What’s wrong?

  • I have a similar problem – but it’s just with #_bookingspaces appearring instead of the number.

    That’s interesting. #_BOOKINGSPACES works in my installation.

    I have meanwhile upgraded to WordPress 3.3.1, no change.

    I completely uninstalled the plugin and installed and configured it from scratch: Same error.

    Weirdly, the placeholder #_BOOKINGNAME works in the “confirmed booking email”, but not in the “contact person email”. Though both emails are created at the same time, one of them contains the name of the customer, the other one just #_BOOKINGNAME


    After a lot of debugging I found a work-around. Not really sure, why this is happening, but this is how I got it up and running again:

    edit events-manager/classes/em-object.php

    find line 576

    this line should start with:
    $custom_replace = apply_filters(’em_booking_output_placeholder’…

    add this line before that one:
    $no_match = null;

    should be fixed in 5.0.3



    I have implementing Event Management plugin too and when I use #_BOOKINGTICKETPRICE #_BOOKINGPRICE placeholder nothing happen it only display those placehoder 🙁

    ryscript, are you trying to use this outside emails? if so thats why, it’s email only placeholders.
