    great, I’m looking forward to seeing it in action.

    We found this code in eme_rsvp.php around lines 978-992.

    		  if ($booking_id) {
    			  // now upload the wanted files. If uploading fails, show that and delete the booking
    			  $upload_failures = eme_upload_files($booking_id,"bookings");
    			  if ($upload_failures) {
    				  // uploading failed, so show why and delete the booking
    				  $form_html .= $upload_failures;
    				  eme_delete_booking($booking_id);
    			  } else {
    				  $booking_ids[]=$booking_id;
    				  // everything ok? So then we add the user in WP if desired
    				  // this will only do it if the booker is not logged in and his email doesn't exist in wp yet
    				  if ($event['event_properties']['create_wp_user']>0 && !$booker_wp_id && !email_exists($booker['email']) ) {
    					  eme_create_wp_user($booker);
    				  }
    			  }
    

    Our booking form includes a file-upload field, so this seems to be the most likely reason that we have occasionally lost bookings.

    We don’t know why you have chosen to delete the booking. This seems like an undesirable option. We would prefer that you advise the user to try to load the file again.

    Hi Franky,

    We followed your advice and everything appears to be working properly now.

    Thank you,

    Hi Franky,

    Yes, we are using #REQ_COUNTRY. We’re assuming that users are using auto-fill, so we get a value, and that satisfies the javascript tests.

    Good to know.

    I had been testing by generating PDF output from the Bulk Actions button on the “Change Registration” page. I’ll stop doing that.

    Thank you,

    I’ll look at that more closely. We’ll follow up with our client to see if their pricing works with a discount.

    thank you

    Thanks for explaining the logic, it makes sense now.

    The issue that I’m trying to deal with is this: we have a registration form and we want to register one seat per booking. We also want to advertise two prices. We do not want the user to choose a price option as we determine which price will be charged. Perhaps this is a job for the filters.

    Thanks for the pointer, that’s exactly what I wanted.

    Is it possible to apply showperiod formatting to the default Events page?

    OK, I’ll experiment.

    I’ve followed the documentation and found the default settings for event list filters. I’ve also set up a few templates and created a WP test page to experiment. The combination of lists and filters works really well. I’m glad you’ve pointed that out to me we’ll be certain to use that. Thank you.

    Unfortunately it isn’t what I want to achieve though it does provide a different way to get to a short list of events. What I want to do is to get the user to the application form as quickly as possible.

    It seems like a common use case, to present a booking form for the event which has multiple dates and to have the user select the date of the event. Have you thought about it at some stage? I’m wondering what are the reasons that you haven’t implemented it?

    I’ve added an eme_filterform shortcode to my WP page and it generates a drop-down for categories and for locations. That’s a great tool.

    I must be overlooking something because I’m not able to get a dropdown for dates. At present I have [eme_events category=1+4 showperiod=monthly] [eme_filterform scope_count=24].

    What should I include in my shortcodes (or my settings) to get a selector for dates?

    malcolm

    I set RSVP min and max seats to “1||1” and loaded the latest eme-formfields.php from trunk.

    The RSVP booking form validator still requires #_SEATS{1} and #_SEATS{2} appear in the code or I am shown a warning message.

    The SEATS fields are formatted as hidden fields and the user does not see them or have to interact with them.

    That is exactly the outcome I was hoping for, thanks for your help

    I’ll dig in and have a look at how to implement that.

    p.s. left a review on the wordpress.com page this morning to express my satisfaction. Of course, money speaks louder than words, so we’ll post a donation too.

    thanks for your help

    Well done.

    Thanks for your suggestion. I think we are already doing that but we want to go further. At present we are using a WP page with embedded shortcodes. We have a page of text and images then we drag in the pricing, seats, location details using a shortcode.

    ’eme_events category=1+4 template_id=1 limit=1`

    Beneath that we display a list of dates that the event is on.

    ’eme_events category=1+4 template_id=3 template_id_header=16 template_id_footer=13 template_id_no_events=18`

    That works perfectly. Of course each date is linked to the event booking form.

    What we’re being asked to do is to place a “Apply Now” button at the top of the page. We can do this if there is only one date because that makes sense. If there is more than one date for the event the “Apply Now” button will link to the first date and once on the booking form the user cannot choose the another date easily.

    As I said in an earlier post, I’d like to produce a booking form which has a selector that displays all of the possible dates, letting the user select the right one for them. How should we handle this? Is the answer to modify the booking form so that we have buttons at the top of the form which allow the user to select a date. That could be done in the template couldn’t it?

    I’m using #_EVENT_COUNTER in a template. I’m expecting 1, 2, 3. Instead I’m getting 3ER, 3ER, 3ER.

    In other words I’m getting $_EVENT_COUNT .’ER’

    When we generate a multi-booking form we get hidden input tags

    
    <input type='hidden' name='eme_event_ids[]' value='20' />
    <input type='hidden' name='eme_event_ids[]' value='21' />
    <input type='hidden' name='eme_event_ids[]' value='22' />
    

    I’d like a to be able to generate a selector instead

    <select   name='eme_event_ids[]'  >
    <option value='20'>Aug 15 2018</option>
    <option value='21'>Dec 9 2018</option>
    <option value='22'>Apr 21 2019</option>
    </select>

    We don’t know when we’ll have one event.

    At some points in the year there will be three events in scope and as time rolls on, two events and then only one event.

    I was hoping that there was something clever that I could do with conditional logic to determine whether more than one event was in scope.
