I'm attempting to map out and build a fundraising website that would allow for an organisation to set up multiple events during the year. Users would be able to register for these events and get notifications relating to the specific event.
Each event, however, is to have custom questions relating only to that event. For instance, one fun-run type event might ask the user whether they wish to complete the short run or the long run, while another event may ask whether they user is over eighteen years of age.
The way I was originally thinking of creating it was to have a registrants channel (using an add-on like Zoo Visitor or Profile:Edit), an events channel and a third channel that would link the two (with one field relating to the registrant channel and one relating to the events channel). This third channel is required to record the registrant's fundraising for that specific event.
Am I just going about this in the completely wrong way? Is there something simpler that I've missed or perhaps I'm trying to stretch too far with one install of EE. Perhaps I need to move towards having one install for each event (or investigate MSM).
Any help, suggestions or guidance would be appreciated!
