Just have a look into the documentation. Maybe that part of the detail 
view ist just hidden and needs to be "enabled" within the TypoScript 
configuration of the plugin. Search for hideFields or similar in the 
manual of the extension (in the configuration reference)

Well, the list of dates within the topic's detail view will show a 
column with a registration link that's unique for each date record. So 
if you just hide all other columns except date + registration, this 
might be the solution for you.

I think you're doing it the correct way with topic and date records. 
That's exactly the scenario why we invented these different event types 
(complete / topic / date records).

I still don't get, what you want to change...? The topic/date feature is 
fully implemented since longer time.

Are you talking about something like a shopping cart where you can book 
several registrations at once?
