Online registration form
Looking for a simple online registrion form for a conference

For a European Conference we now use a download registration form but we would like to make an online registration form as well. This is NGO work, so no budgets available. Can't spend too much time on reinventing the wheel and if it is too complicated we will stick with the normal form, but on-line registration would help us getting the registrations in quicker.

The fields we use would be:
- personal details like name, institution etc.
- arrival-departure time and place
No problem, this can any form-mail or guestbook do.

Then we would need a few radio buttons like
..yes/no I want give presentation
Also no problem, this can be like default=empty is no, clicking is yes

The most problematic would be accommodation and counting the fees.
For example, we would offer several types-locations for accommodation

yes/no single at 40 $, yy nights @ 40$ = amount xx
yes/no double at 25 $ yy nights @ 25$ = amount xx

There will be also registration fees (yes/no buttons for which type) and some other payments. The nicest would be if there would be a field "Total" automatically adding all fees together.

Apart from adapting the normal guestbook, anybody has any tips where to find free templates?

Is using a form for a shopping cart an option? If so, any idea where to get a free and useful template; no experience with this. Besides, we don't have online-payment option; its only registration.

A simple shopping cart should do. You can find many using a google search.

Do all shopping carts need MySQL?

It's something what we do not have on this IRM package and since this is not for a permanent shop but for conference registration, I prefer not to switch packages again.

Probably not all of them, but most of them I would think use a database.
