- Create charts simply by using URL with some parameters
- Inserting the chart is as simple as you would be inserting an image
- The chart is created on the fly dynamically
- No need of server side coding
- Any resolution of the chart with only a change in URL parameters
- Manipulating the parameters of the URL would change the chart
- A variety of styles to choose as per your tastes.
Lets take a simple case study for our chart. Suppose you are showing Contribution to orgnization using monthly and yearly basis and instead of showing the data in tabular format you could show the data with some visual cues. Charts are the perfect way...Read more
We've had the ability to add one/more CiviCRM Profiles to the drupal registration page since the first release (thanx to the flexibility of Drupal hooks). This was not possible in Joomla 1.0.x and we hoped the 1.5.x series might help solve this issue and be more open. While Joomla 1.5 is a major step forward in multiple aspects, it did not address this issue. So to some extent we were stuck. I was hoping for someone in the community to step up and do the needful. But that did not seem to be happening either :(
After yet another forum post on this topic, i decided to take a look at the code and figure out what needs to be done. We had abstracted most of the pieces from drupal already, so we just need to make a few function calls at the right places. I started looking for an example component that does something similar, that I could base my work on. Had heard good things about...Read more
Store Data for Multiple "Domains" in a Single DatabaseThe current data model allows you to create and maintain separate "data silos" ("domains") in a single CiviCRM database. This concept was derived from Drupal's multi-site table-prefixing model - although it uses foreign keys instead to link each domain's dataset. Over the past few releases, we have seen quite a few use cases where larger hierarchical organizations want to control access to subsets of their data - based on a user's departmental or regional affiliation and/or role. However - the current... Read more
The new dedupe engine and UI landed on trunk (development part of our code repository) last week, and we’d be more than happy if you gave it a try on our CiviCRM 2.1 sandbox and let us know how it works for you.
The new dedupe, besides the engine changes described earlier, sports a new user interface. Navigate to Administer CiviCRM → Find and Merge Duplicate Contacts and check out the new admin screens.
Since 2.1, you are not limited to editing the three rule groups (one per contact type), but can create your own. The change that lets you use various dedupe rule groups for a given contact type without having to redefine them is accompanied by two new properties – ‘defaultness’ and level, explained below.
Another change in CiviCRM 2.1 is that the dedupe engine is used for contact matching through the whole application. For this, the two ‘fuzziness...Read more
