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, first you need to create directory “wp-event-manager-registrations” under your theme folder and copy the template file to “/wp-content/yourtheme/wp-event-manager-registrations/” directory. 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.

Remember: if you have overrided 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.
