Multi-site and Registration Form Query

We’ve been using EventEspresso for our bookings for a few years now, but have recently closed a deal that would change our sales structure quite a bit and we have a few questions relating to the change.

Our plan is to migrate our EventEspresso installation to a fresh WordPress instance on a subdomain that would serve solely as a “stand-alone” EventEspresso instance. The events would then be published on two WordPress sites — one of them on the same domain as the EventEspresso server, and the other on our partner’s domain. I had planned on using IFrames on both sites that simply take the Event page from our stand-alone server.

So, the questions that have come up are:

1. The whole registration/payment process would need to happen inside the same IFrame making our stand-alone server “invisible” to the end user. Is this even possible? Due to the nature of the partnership, we can’t redirect our users to a separate site and the whole process qouñd. Eed to be seemless.

2. If this setup is feasable, what would this mean in terms of licencing? Would we need to purchase two separate licences for the EventEspresso install, or would it be sufficient with a single license since the content is being served from a single domain? This really isn’t a big issue, but since your product has been a game-changer for us, we want to make sure we’re being straightforwards and fair on these issues.

3. If this centralized server concept isn’t feasable, can you recommend any alternatives? The most important issues for us are:
A. We need to be able to make sure there is no overbooking on Events.
B. We want to avoid having to make changes to events on multiple instances.
I also considered having separate instances on each of the WordPress sites and simply sharing the MySQL database between thw two, but as far as I can tell there is no easy way of having EventEspresso access a different databade than thw WordPress site hosting it. I also figured it would tale quite a bit of “fragile” custom code to deal with the different domains.

Thank you for your time!! I hope we can make this work so we can keep relying to your software for our needs!

In addition, we would also like to know if it is possible to have a simple (Name, e-mail, phone number) registration form before payment, and an additional form with more fields once payment has been completed.

Thank you once again!

Hi Akseli,

The iframe part might work as far as the registration checkout step, but your success may vary depending on the payment gateway because some of the payment gateways do not allow their checkout pages to be served via an iframe.

With regards to licensing, you’re still running Event Espresso on one site so the licensing end of things isn’t an issue.

possible to have a simple (Name, e-mail, phone number) registration form before payment, and an additional form with more fields once payment has been completed.

Currently Event Espresso doesn’t offer this feature so something like this would require some significant custom development.
