New WordCamp ticket registration fields

This week we added three new fields that will appear on the registration form when purchasing/claiming any ticket on a WordCamp site. The first two fields relate to special situations that organizers should know about:

  • Do you have a life-threatening allergy that would affect your experience at WordCamp?
  • Do you require special accommodations, such as a sign language interpreter or wheelchair access, to participate in WordCamp?

If the attendee answers “Yes” to either of these questions, a notification email will automatically be sent to the WordCamp organizer, directing them to follow the guidelines in one of these Handbook pages:

The third field relates to the event Code of Conduct:

  • Do you agree to follow the event Code of Conduct?

This question will include a link to the Code of Conduct page on the site, if it is still the same page that was automatically generated when the WordCamp site was first created. This field just has a “Yes” checkbox. If the box is not checked, the site visitor will not be able to purchase/claim the ticket.

(Note that for WordCamps that currently have open ticket sales, there is no need for attendees to go back and retroactively check the box.)

To see if the text associated with these new fields has been translated for your locale yet, check the WordCamp.org translation project.

Thanks to @andreamiddleton and @iandunn for help getting these enhancements up and running.
