Have you ever wondered, how can I give a group of contacts specific capabilities? We have too. And now you can! Introducing the CiviCRM Groups Sync Plugin (CGS). This plugin provides a new way for access control to be managed that associates a group of users in WordPress to a group of contacts in CiviCRM.
In the past few weeks we have been looking at how a more uniform user experience could be provided between CiviCRM and WordPress dashboards. We looked at potentially leveraging Shoreditch, but quickly realized that it's dependent on a Drupal theme and the readme clearly stated that is was only for Drupal.
After many many many months, we had another CiviNYC day last week at Columbia University, thanks to Bashar Makhay (@themak) of the Office of Government and Community Affairs.
The first time a WordPress version of CiviCRM was available it was version 4.1 back in February 2012. It has now been more than 5 years, and I thought it would be nice to outline what has happened since WordPress became available as a CMS option for CiviCRM.
Last year in February we started a series of CiviNYC work days. It consists of an event where we work and learn from each other for an afternoon, usually around 4 hours. Here's what it looks like.
Not too shabby!!!
CiviDay NYC was hosted by the National Urban League and Tadpole Collective. We came together for an afternoon of working and learning together, followed by presentations in the evening.
I had fallen into technology almost by accident. As someone who enjoys delivering solutions I often find myself in conversations with people who are trying to build software infrastructures. It spawned a curiosity of technology puzzles. This brought me to Open Source software and I was soon building and configuring WordPress websites, and creating a workspace that allowed me to collaborate with the larger software communities.
