On a clients site, we are using several contribution pages, and some of them are duplicated in webforms. I have a hard time deciding when to use what. I prefer the webforms, but I always end up configuring everything twice. What is the intended workflow ?
For a contribution, a contribution page is needed. But for a dozen similar contributions, I can use webforms pointing to the same contribution page, and configure the payment amounts there. However, since I can't 'hide' the civicrm page from the web, I do need to configure the amounts there, too. I always end up puzzling on how to sync these amounts from the contribution page to the webpage (pricesets - matrix - confusion).
On contribution pages, I can include 'profiles' to get additional information. On the webforms, I can just include the wanted fields from the contacts. since I can't 'hide' the civicrm page from the web, I would have to do both.
