    Hi Evgeny, my question is about understanding how the forum operates. Occasionally I notice that you or Dmitry ask members to 'vote' on an idea. Is voting achieved by just posting a reply or is there some other way for the community to cast a vote in favour of the change or against it?

    I suppose what I am looking for is a list of all suggestions that are 'up for vote' where I can go and cast a simple: Yes, No or 'Happy either way', perhaps with a short comment box

    Is there somewhere in the community where requests for feedback or voting are summarised or can be identified? I find it difficult to locate my own threads where the community has been asked its opinion let alone others

    I don't think that there is any doubt that it is confusing - the question is whether or not soemthing should be done about it and if so what?

    Is it possible to change this using global javascript or CSS?

    A number of my members, who are also event organisers, have found the use of the term 'public view' confusing and did not immediately realize that the button 'To public view' in fact takes you to the Member view.

    Given the title of this thread, would it not be more correct and less confusing if the button were to read 'To Member view'

    I came across a posting on 17th January 2012 from Frank, User Experience Designer (WA) that provides a CSS workaround that appears to work a treat

    http://forums.wildapricot.com/forums/308920-archive/suggestions/8835451-hiding-free-label-on-events-without-costs

    It does the job for us by removing the registration label from the bullets that appear below the heading Registration in the registration box that appears on the front page of each event. For the events that have multiple registrations, we now need to include in the registration description some of the text that previously appeared in the registration label - not a problem

    The change applies to all events that appear on the PageID specified in the CSS code (the PageID can be found in Page management)

    Thanks Frank

    This is also addressed in 24159 http://forums.wildapricot.com/forums/308932-wishlist/suggestions/8826691-do-not-mark-as-free-events-which-involve-expense

    We are a golfing society that has around forty fixtures per year at various golf clubs in the UK. We want as many Members as possible to register for events to show their availability for selection. We do not charge for events via the web site, we collect all fees due on the day and pay the golf club directly. The society does not get involved in the finances so we set up all events as 'free' to avoid invoicing issues

    We use the event and registration type descriptions to explain the pricing of the event so having the Register panel next to each event displaying '- Free' is confusing and distracting.

    I merged another very similar thread into this one, they should be solved together – the registration to multiple events should be simple and fast if possible. There are a number of suggestions in comments on how to achieve this.

    I represent two organisations where the ability to register for multiple events in a single visit would encourage more to registrations and reduce the burden on central administrators who are often asked to register for multiple events on behalf of members.

    Perhaps from the List view of upcoming events it might be possible to add a check box to the dialogue box displaying the summary of the event. If there is then a general registration button that looks for all 'checked events' could it be possible to take the user through all 'checked' registrations. The problem, I believe, is always having to find your way back to the event list following each registration - not easy for everyone!

    We are a sports society and have many fixtures against other societies.

    We encourage members to show their availability by registering for as many events as possible event and then select the team from those who have registered.

    We treat them all as free events - those selected have to pay to participate but all money is collected on the day and to keep it simple, we don't put it through the system.

    There is only one registration type and all the registration forms are the same - one additional field to those that are pre-populated - this also encourages members to tick the 'Include name in list of event attendees' box (we would also like this to be be able to default to 'yes' - see other threads)

    Is the facility to be able to put exactly the same registration information to multiple events planned for the next release? I have seen references to this in a number of threads but cannot determine the current status of this in the wish list

    Thanks
