Sometimes we have classes that repeat on multiple dates. The registration for all dates needs to close at the start of the first class date.
But when we have a repeating class using your ticket management add-on and the class is set to “Stop selling tickets X minutes before event start” only the first date turns off, not the repeating dates for that same event.
Is it possible to turn off ALL dates for a repeating event with this feature so we don’t have to do it manually?
there is a new version of tickets just released a few days ago that may (or may not) fix your problem- I do recommend updating that
there is also an update to the eventon core and event lists (although I don’t think the events list is influencing your problem)
I need to understand one thing however
this event for example Quick Curve Ruler – #20
runs on the 20th of Feb and repeats on the 6th of march
why would you want to stop selling tickets to the 6th of march at the time when you stop selling tickets to the 20th of feb? that doesn’t make sense to me
They don’t want people joining the class unless they are there from the start date. The class starts on Feb 20th and they don’t want people missing that date, then joining on March 6th. People would be confused starting the class after missing a full date.
I hope that makes sense.
It sounds like you are suggesting to update the plugin, but you don’t think that will fix the problem. Is that correct?
oh ok so it is actually 1 event- the same people are going to each class and they have to go to the first in order to get to the second it is 1 event spanning over 2 dates, so they don’t need to be buy tickets to the second class (as they should have already bought it in the first class)
unfortunately the tickets are not set up for that- you would have to manually turn off sales for the second class
In that case perhaps creating a repeat is not the best way to do it
here is an alternative
scroll down to 22 sep- and this is your first class and then on the 28th is the second class- if you open the second class it has a button buy tickets- when clicked it takes you to the woocommerce product for the first event
that button is added when creating the event (scroll down to the bottom of https://benfranklincraftswi.com/wp-admin/post.php?post=11150&action=edit )
now you have some redirect plugin in operation but you could link to the single events page of the first event (I am not 100% familiar with your redirect plugin or how to turn it off for that event and I didn’t want to play around with it)
this way yes you are creating 2 events (or you could create 1 event copy the “view event” url and duplicate the event and paste the link into the button field and change the date/times) also you wouldn’t have 2 places where they are buying tickets
I am not sure if this is what you are after you can delete that button in
myeventon>>>>settings>>>>>custom meta data and the second option is the tickets button you simply deactivate it
So I am sorry if my solution isn’t what you are after I am sorry to say there is no was to turn off automatically the second repeats ticket sales – you could request a customization however
For customization job, please fill up the customization request form and send us a request.
I understand your work around. I’m just surprised there isn’t an easier, more automated option. Oh well. Thanks.
RSVP is not currently set up for classes- more so for individual events
or people would have it all in one event
if you don’t want people going to the second course without going to the first one- then why advertise the second one? best to advertise it only in the first event
in the 5th october you would say this event has 2 courses the first being the 5th of october and the second being the 8th october (or whatever your dates are)
Day 1: 5th october
course details fdffdfdf
Day 2: 8th October
you would have that in the event details
In the sub header of the event you could put in 5th & 8th of october
make that 1 event rsvpable and not need to have the second event listed at all
