Would it be possible for visitors on a website to signup for events created in event calendar?

Since this is for a website which provides courses, ideally with max number of signups allowed per event.

Also, the dream would be, if the signup form and corresponding user group/mailing list would automatically be created for each event.

I have minimum knowledge of PHP, so if anybody would help me with snippets, this would be awesome :)

Thanks a lot in advance for help.

Hello, sorry it took me a while to post this. I've attached some example code for a site I built with event registration. Here is the link to the site for reference:

I've taken out some of the things that you won't need. Should still work okay. I figure you can customize it the way you like and just use this code as a model. Let me know how it works. Good luck!

Finally, the website is good to go, and I am working on signups for events :)

I am testing your original code, some small things like removing dataobjects or includes which i didnt have, went ok..

But then I am running into this error after i flushed templates:

[Notice] Trying to get property of non-object
GET /testworkshop/2010-02-09

Line 34 in /home/dinhurlg/public_html/mysite/code/Workshop.php


25 		$f->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.Main", new TextField('WorkshopCost','Workshop Cost'),'Content');
26 		$f->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.Main", new TextField('WorkshopDiscount','Workshop Discount'),'Content');
29 		return $f;
30 	}
32 	public function RegisterLink()
33 	{
34 		return DataObject::get_one("RegistrationPage")->URLSegment . "/" . $this->ID;
35 	}
38 }

And i have to admit that I have no idea what this error means..

Help is appreciated ..

Umm... are there any RegistrationPage records in the database?

I am not quite sure what I am looking for.. yes, there is RegistrationPage table in the database, with fields ID and ThankYouMessage, but thats it, I guess..

Anywhere else I should be looking?
