We had a scenario where client runs a cluster of events, and folk sign up for these, and usually the registrants signs up for all events, but then they might invite mum to the Dinner, and brother John to the Talk, etc etc.

We wanted to achieve this on a single form with a single payment. We explored both CiviCart and Drupal Commerce but in the end concluded we could achieve this in a much lighter way with good old webforms.

The outcome is that up to 6 people can be registered for any combination of events, eg 

  • c1 registers for Events A, B, C, D, E and F

Two months ago, I launched a Make It Happen campaign to build a System Administrator Guide with the goal of migrating the installation, setup, and upgrade documentation out of the wiki and into a beautiful guide on our new documentation platform. Amazingly, the MIH campaign reached its $2,000 USD minimum in only 4 days — which meant I could get to work right away!

Now I've completed this content migration and am excited to share the System Administrator Guide with you, in...
