Hide "Don't list me on the public attendee list" option

    Hello, how can I hide the “Don’t list me on the public attendee list” checkbox option?

    The option used to be hidden due to this snippet I had put in “Additional CSS” in my theme:

    .tribe-tickets-attendees-list-optout {
    display: none;

    That stopped working, so I did a web search, and someone said use this:

    tr .tribe-tickets-attendees-list-optout {
    display: none;

    That doesn’t work either.

    I found an article that links to a code snippet that allows attendees to view their ticket information but not to modify their attendee information, their RSVP “Going / Not Going” status, and/or their “Don’t list me on the public attendee list” response here:

    But that seems to be different than hiding the option in the first place. Also, neither the page with the link nor the page with the actual code indicates exactly where to put the code snippet (functions.php, but I have no idea what directory that is in).

    Follow up question: if I don’t hide the “Don’t list me on the public attendee list” option, and someone purchases a ticket, and checks that box, is that person counted in the number of attendees listed under “who’s attending”?

    Thanks for reaching out!

    To answer your second question, them checking the box only prevents their avatar from appearing on the front end – it does not affect the attendees list 🙂

    To hide the option, you can use this CSS:

    #buy-tickets .tribe-tickets-attendees-list-optout {
        display: none;

    or do a template override of the tickets.php file found at wp-content/plugins/event-tickets-plus/src/views/wootickets – you’ll want to remove the following from your copy:

    if ( ! $hide_attendee_list_optout
    	 && class_exists( 'Tribe__Tickets_Plus__Attendees_List' )
    	 && ! Tribe__Tickets_Plus__Attendees_List::is_hidden_on( get_the_ID() )
    ) { ?>
    	<tr class="tribe-tickets-attendees-list-optout">
    		<td colspan="4">
    				name="optout_<?php echo esc_attr( $ticket->ID ); ?>"
    			<label for="tribe-tickets-attendees-list-optout-edd"><?php esc_html_e( "Don't list me on the public attendee list", 'event-tickets-plus' ); ?></label>
