Contributing to CiviCRM

CiviCRM - Mon, 01/15/2018 - 13:51

Last year, we overhauled the CiviCRM contributor program, allowing individuals to submit details about their contributions online as well combined the contributor and partner listing. So far this year, we’ve seen an increase in contributions being logged as well as a new revision to site that improves visibility of contributions. We thought it’d be a good time to recap where the program is at, answer a few common questions, and highlight where we see it going.

Registering multiple people for multiple different events - using Webforms - and LOTS of conditionals

CiviCRM - Wed, 12/06/2017 - 18:37

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
