I am needing to create an entry form for a musical competition. So basically, the registration form (which can be connected to WP via s2) needs to be quite complex, ideally with a bit of conditional logic? For example, if someone selects that they are entering in the Vocal section, then the vocal classes will appear. There will be 5 sections (Vocal, Instrumental, etc.), and up to 400 classes spread among them. Other fields would be things like date of birth, email address, etc.

I have all the classes in a spreadsheet, so I would want to bulk import them into the registration form. Obviously I wouldn’t want to manually create a form with this many possibilities.

I also need a decent exporting tool. Can the Pro version of s2Member help me export the entries? I would want to export, say, class 100, which would contain all the people that registered for that class.

Of course, if I’m barking up the wrong tree here (in terms of plugin choice), then let me know. Also if there are any other plugins that might be better suited, then I would greatly appreciate recommendations.

Kind regards,

Hi James,

s2Member’s Custom Registration Fields feature is not designed for the complexity you describe.

If I was working on a similar project and needed to provide membership access to a site, I would either find another plugin that specifically handles form creation or custom-code my own form to the specs you described, and then hook into s2Member for the registration process. s2Member provides plenty of hooks that allow you to do this, as well as an API for creating new users via a snippet of PHP code (s2Member Pro required).

The current version of s2Member allows you to export user and custom field data to a CSV file, but there are no options for elaborate filtering like you described (e.g., ‘class 100’). The next version of s2Member, expected to be released towards the end of March, will have improved features in this regard.
