Bigger registration button
The registration button is so small and light grey. I have had many members from several associations complain about how they cannot find the small register button at the bottom of the event page. Being able to make it a different color and bigger would be a huge asset.

It seems that the nature of the Registration button depends on the site's design/setup, because ours is kelly green and huge, right next to our events' descriptions. Also unmissable on the list of events. I suggest anyone with a button design/location issue first talk with Support as to why buttons differ.
But while on this subject, I do have some minor beefs:
Can we change the button label? Traditionally in our 75-year-old organization we make "reservations" and the volunteers who handle them are still called "reservationists."
In the mobile version of our site's list of events, if I remember right, the button comes above the event. Although nobody has complained, as a usability concern this seems very wrong. User should first be offered the details of the event, etc., before seeing the Register button. We have too many people coming from the Internet and reserving before they know the details of the event, let alone having a full picture of our club.
Our motif is red and white, with some blue. It would be nice if we could change the color. (I didn't set up our site and am not Webmaster, so offhand I don't know if this is an easily changeable option. I suspect it might be.)
Hmm, our Register button is pink and not that hard to find, I think. Maybe our website admin did some changes that accomplished this or she changed theme colors or something.
Since we have a number of reg. types on one of our events, we also put a "Register Now" link closer to the top of the description. See http://www.wesoweb.org/event-2422648
Also, in our regular events, with fewer choices, I think the Register button seems pretty clear. See http://www.wesoweb.org/event-2467214
I have put a "Register Now" button at the top of our event e-mails so folks on phones can click that right away. We haven't had much trouble since then.
The board members on my team have suggested finding another membership hosting service because our members cannot figure out how to register for our events. I think this issue would be resolved if the registration button was easier to see.
Please! I've received feedback about the difficulty of finding that button. I don't want anymore angry complaints. Thank you, thank you!

I have had several clients who have complained about the event registration button as well. I would like to be able to move it to the top of the page, as well as make it bigger and more noticeable.
