To make custom tabs when viewing a contact, begin by using the tabs_hook "hook_civicrm_tabs".

A simple example given on the hooks documentation link above

function civitest_civicrm_tabs( &$tabs, $contactID ) { // unset the contribition tab, i.e. remove it from the page unset( $tabs[1] ); // let's add a new "contribution" tab with a different name and put it last // this is just a demo, in the real world, you would create a url which would // return an html snippet etc. $url = CRM_Utils_System::url( 'civicrm/contact/view/contribution', "reset=1&snippet=1&force=1&cid=$contactID" ); $tabs[] = array( 'id' => 'mySupercoolTab', 'url' => $url, 'title...

This is by no means an elegant solution, but is at least a step towards automatically creating an associated Drupal user when adding a membership to a CiviCRM individual. The code basically grabs the email from the contactId, sets the necessary paramaters to create the Drupal user, and then calls the method that does the creation. I was getting a form error for a while that was not allowing the creation of the new Drupal. I eventually troubleshot the error down to there being no password set in the form when creating the Drupal user. I'm not sure my workaround is the best, but I used the hook_form_alter to make password not required, and it worked for me. Here is the code below: function MODULENAME_civicrm_postProcess( $formName, &$form ){ if($form->_BAOName == "CRM_Member_BAO_Membership" && $form->_action == 1){ //creating new membership require_once("CRM/Contribute/BAO/Contribution/Utils.php"); require_once('CRM/Contact/BAO/Contact.php'); $email =...

The team is excited to announce the release of CiviCRM 3.1 Stable. You can download the release AND / OR try it out on our demo sites. The version number for the initial stable release is 3.1.1. There was an invalid 3.1.0 distribution on Sourceforge for a few hours. If you downloaded that version, please discard and re-download 3.1.1.

v3.1 includes several COOL new features:

  • Contact Subtypes - Extend (and / or rename) the built-in contact types and create custom fields specific to a subtype (e.g. Staff vs. Volunteer custom fields). Thanks to the folks at Alpha International for sponsoring this much-requested feature (learn more...).
  • Personal Dashboards - Each CiviCRM user can...

This is a follow up to Refactoring CiviCRM's templating system (starting with CSS). It may be helpful to read that first, although it is certainly not necessary. We have made a lot of progress on CiviCRM 3.1's templating system, and I'm quite please to share some of the details of the work with you! In addition to a number of minor fixes and CSS cleanup, the main contribution page template has been re-worked and we have begun implementing many of the ideas outlined in the Layout Standards page. I've also created a new subsection in the Wiki, that deals specifically with templates & theming. I hope that this section will...
