The NatCon 2008 Registration Form has just gone live.

NatCon is an annual national wargaming tournament. This year the tournament is being held by the Christchurch Cavaliers at the St Albans & Shirley Working Men's Club. They needed an on-line registration system that would allow the tournament organisers to be able to collect the registrations with the minimum amount of fuss and paperwork.

To this end Drupal was used. Using CCK, Taxonomy and Views to create a content type for the registration form. This content type is unable to be published and is able to be created by non-authenticated users.

A few of the organisers and umpires have access to the site and are able to view the registrations that are relevant to them and download the registrations as a CSV file for importing into their own systems as the need arises.

The other thing that I liked about this site was that it was my first Multi-site. The registration system is running of the same codebase as Evolved.
