5.3 and Pro 2.2.5 Released

Posted on November 23, 2012


Template File Changes

There is one small but important line to add if you are using our Attendee forms and you’ve overridden templates/forms/bookingform/ticket-single.php. See the diff for details on where to add this line  on your template if so.

  • partially-updated Russian translation, thanks to Evgeniy Efimenko

  • added second em_booking_form_ticket_spaces action to templates/forms/bookingform/ticket-single.php fixes attendee field not showing for single/last ticket/space bookings
  • reverted to previous use of global $wp_query in parse_query filters with additional fix to prevent clash with Pods framework

Pro 2.2.5

Aside from some translation adjustments and a full translation of Chinese, we’ve also made a minor fix to the reservation of pending spaces with gateways preventing manual approval of these reserved bookings if the booking is full. Some other functionality has been improved (particularly in some specific event booking settings combined with our new Attendee Forms feature) but these corrections were made to the main/free plugin.

5.3 is required for this update (although 5.3 can still run older versions of Pro). Please make sure you update both plugins if you upgrade Pro as well!


  • fixed some non-translated strings
  • updated the POT file
  • added Chinese translation, thanks to Leo Losoviz
  • fixed pending/reserved spaces not being approvable, requires EM 5.3 to work
