Let's ring in the New Year by spinning some new hits and timeless classics for the dancefloor at this CiviCRM extension party.
//record scratching sound// Wait, what's an extension, you ask?
It's an add-on so your Civi can do more things in better ways.
For starters, over 200 Drupal 8 sites already run CiviCRM! This post is based on my own research and conversations with those involved, and is intended to be informative and encouraging. As you may know, CiviCRM works with no less than four CMS at the moment, including three versions of Drupal, two 'officially'. Understandably with Drupal 7 end-of-support scheduled for Nov 2021, there has been recent discussion amongst those using or considering Drupal about which to use for your website.
Hello world, I would like to introduce the idea of of CiviCRM "Community Fridays". Let's coalesce our ongoing community efforts improving Civi around a certain day of the week: every Friday.
This is the idea of myself, Allen Shaw, Josh Gowans and and other partners. Will you consider joining us? Community Friday isn't just for bugs and developers... it's for marketing, end users and everyone.
I’d like to pose a question to users of CiviCRM that is not particularly technical. It’s more to do with using the existing features of Civi in the most effective and efficient way to do 2 very important things...cultivate Major Donors and apply for Grants.
See how donation, events and grant data can live happily under one CiviCRM roof.
McKenzie River Gathering (MRG) Foundation is the leading funder of Oregon's social justice movements, driven by an unwavering belief in the power of collective action to change the world. Robust management of our various constituencies is essential for meeting our goals.
CiviCRM has had an array of powerful import tools for as long as I can remember but the availble options have been limited. Contacts, Contributions, Participants, Memberships and Activities...sure....but what about the Events themselves? Sorry. What about Grants? Nope.
"Sort Name" is used by CiviCRM for tabular search results. CiviCRM has historically just copied the Household and Organization names directly into the Sort Name field. For names such the "The Can Company" and "Tom and Jeri Cooper" this doesn't work out so well; the sort will happen on the letter T as in "The" rather than the letter C as is more appropriate.
Proper GRM tools can make all the difference in the success or failure of your herd. As many developers have found, working with a proprietary goat resource management system can seem simple in the beginning, but customizing it to your herd's specific needs can feel like eating brambles. With the new CiviCRM extensions framework and easily digestible API 3.0, developers can dig in and produce at an unprecedented rate.
