Conference Organizing Distribution (COD)


COD is a "Conference Organizing Distribution" meant to make it easy to build a site for manage events with features like session submission, registration, user profiles, forums, and logistical information.

You should use COD if you are building a site for a conference like a Drupalcamp or Barcamp, for an organization that offers trainings, for a Drupalcon perhaps, for a music venue that wants to sell tickets online without using ticketmaster, etc.

[Free Webinar] Faster and Smarter Development with Drupal Console

2015-09-30 21:30 - 22:30 Asia/Kolkata

Managing the increasing complexity of Drupal 8 can be a daunting task for anyone. Writing a module involves a lot of boilerplate code. There are also a lot of things you need to know and do, just to get started with building a new module. These tasks can be repetitive and tedious, and can therefore create opportunities for errors. Fortunately, a lot of the new code can be generated automatically using Drupal Console.

Schedule not working in beta5

I'm trying to update to beta5 from beta3 and hoping to get the drag and drop schedule builder going. But I'm running into an issue wherein the schedule tab no longer appears at all on the Manage event dashboard. Also, simply typing in the location in the URL bar results in an "Access denied" page.

Permissions and features look correct, or at least, identical to beta3 settings where it is accessible just fine.

Is there a setting I am missing or is there a bug?

Any help greatly appreciated.

Time Slot creation in beta2

We are currently running a production site based on the v7 alpha3. We are in the process of migrating to beta2.

One thing that we are running into is that when creating Times, the title display of the time in various places is 7 hours behind. E.g., if my first time slot is at Sept 4 at 7:30 am, it appears as
09/04/2014 - 00:30-09/04/2014 - 01:30.

Workflow for registering for Event where registrant is also ticket holder.

I have a live COD site. We're using 6.x right now and I'm starting to work toward converting to 7.
I love the ticket module and how it separates out the registrant from registered. This is how many of my client's people register. (They ask their admin assistant to do it)
