If you've recently upgraded to CiviCRM 4.1, you'll need to upgrade your webform_civicrm as well. Versions 2.3 and below are not fully compatible with Civi 4.1. Version 2.4 is, and will be released in the next couple of days, especially if I get a few comments on this post from people who have sucessfully tested it! The latest -dev is stable and working, so please feel free to download it and try it out on your 4.1 site!

Note: webform_civicrm 2.4 is not backwards-compatible with older versions of CiviCRM, and should only be used with 4.1.x

New Features In webform_civicrm 2.4

  • Adds contact image and language pref fields
  • More options for matching/updating existing activities
  • Support for new multi-valued contact sub-type
  • Improved group and tag fields
  • Can include the entire webform submission in the activity details, as well as an edit link

There have been several hook() or Drupal module based solutions for "members only" pricing for events or for other 'discounts' related to memberships.

 

I take a different approach by using only jQuery and blocks in Drupal 6.  For those who use Drupal 7 you can adapt this code with Drupal 7's new javascript namespace and Joomla folks could even make use of this in custom TPL files.

 

The whole concept of this code is that any 'member only' fee label must contain a specific word or phrase, in my example this word is "Member".  Staff must be trained to do this - it is relatively simple to do so.

 

How it works:

1. Place this code in a block, selecting "full HTML" or "unfiltered" input type, and assign the block to an inconspicuous region in...

Thanks to a successful Make-it-Happen campaign the 4.1 release comes with a much improved and super flexible approach for running Civi's critical back-ground processing tasks. These tasks include keeping membership statuses up to date and sending renewal reminders, sending scheduled CiviMail mailings, sending pledge payment reminders, and more. I've spent the past 10 days testing and documenting the new "consolidated cron" functionality, and the good news is that I think it fulfills the promise of providing a convenient and friendly way to administer and run all the required tasks for a site.

 

The "bad" news is that these improvements are NOT backward compatible. The set of PHP scripts which were previously used to run these tasks have all been deprecated (and moved to a 'deprecated' directory). This means that all CiviCRM-related cron jobs will stop working as soon as any site is upgraded to 4.1...

One of my favorite features in CiviCRM 4.1 is the improved support for custom tokens via hooks. It's really opened up the possibilities for building some great functionality and new workflows in CiviCRM. If you already know what tokens and hooks are, skip down to see some cool examples.

Wait a minute, what are hooks and tokens?

When composing a mass-email, letter, etc. you can personalize it with tokens. Tokens are little placeholders that can get replaced with something different for each contact. Traditionally a token is simply a field in the database, so if you start your letter off with "Dear {contact.first_name}" it will become "Dear Robert" when sent to Bob. But as we will see, you can do a lot more with tokens than just pull a single contact field.

That's where hooks come into play....

Continuing our amazing productivity during sprints, we introduce our 9th and final sprint of the year. This sprint is being held at the offices of De Goede Woning in Netherlands from Dec 12th - Dec 16th. A big thanks to the sponsors  - De Goede Woning - for offering facilities, bosworX for installing WiFi and to Erik H and Erik B from EE-atWork for sponsoring the food, drink and accommodations.

This sprint we are trying something a bit different. In addition to the folks gathering in the NL, we will have a virtual sprint going on at approx the same time on the #civicrm IRC channel. Considering we have developers spread across different time zones (europe, india, US east coast, US west coast, new zealand), we should be going pretty good around the clock :) We'll have a virtual...
