How do i change the wording on events+ listings and single view


I want to change the wording of "Takes place on"... which shows before the event date to "Event Date: "

This applies to all uses of this on my site.

For example: and

Can you please advise where this should be updated and is there any way to protect this change from future plugin updates (by copying the edited file to my theme etc)

Many thanks

    Hey @chris, hope you're doing well today! :slight_smile:

    In this case, what you can do is take the language file that's located in events-and-bookings/languages, download that, and open it in a program like this:

    Once you download that, you'll be wanting to open the .po file you downloaded earlier, and note the entries that you're wanting to change. Do not add the wording changes to the "Source Text" section, add them as translations.

    After going to Catalog -> Properties & making sure that the language is set to English (United States) there, you'll want to go File -> Save As..., and save the file as eab-en_US.po. Please note, a file with a .mo extension will be saved as well.

    Once you've done this, upload both eab-en_US.po & to wp-content/languages/plugins.

    And now you should be good to go! Before you ask, yes, this will definitely be safe against future updates to the plugin itself, as the files are being saved to a different directory entirely. :slight_smile:

    Hope this helps!
