How do I style the Register Button. The site I am using this on uses a different style button with a border and no background color. I would like continuity on my site if possible please.

Hello, thx for the .css. I found it on provided link, but it is not working to hide the MEC sidebar – it just narrow the content.
In my specific situation – I am working with The7 theme – it has it’s own system to manage the sidebars. normally it is not active for custom post types (mec_event) but I added this function also to MEC events by a snippet in function.php of my child theme.
Now if I activate a sidebar and I tell to The7 theme to use mec sidebar in this sidebar i usually have 2 sidebars – MEC and mine – which is not what I want. The point is to place mec widgets in a regular sidebar. I made a copy of our website so you can investigate this problem if you find time for it – I can make you and admin account and send ftp credentials .. (there are also secondary layout problems with The7 theme)
I have one more question – is there an easy way how to handle the order of MEC widgets in a sidear?
Thx for your support
