January Campfire Resources

It was great to hear about what people are working on. We talked about managing events with CiviCRM, hosting options, Wordpress and Civi integration, headless Civi, and much more. More advanced users helped newbies answer questions as well.

Coleman Watts from the CiviCRM Core Team talked about Search Improvements and received great feedback. Noah said, "Thanks for the great work, Coleman. This really takes Civi to a new level." Christian Wach shared a link to CiviCRM Gutenberg Blocks.

Jon Goldberg from Megaphone Technology Consulting shared that to do a complex import, install these four extensions:

Jon added to do the headless forms, you want Form Processor and Action Provider above, as well as Inlay and InlayFP.

Here are some of the other resource links shared during the event.
