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

The team is excited to announce the first stable release of version 4.1  - with support for Drupal 7, Drupal 6, Joomla 1.7/2.5, and Wordpress 3.3. You can download the release now from Sourceforge.

We strongly recommend that you upgrade a test copy of your site and review your critical workflows before upgrading your production site. You can also test-drive the release on each platform using the public demos:

Using only jQuery and CiviCRM to create Members Only Pricing

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.

Wake-up Call for Site Administrators - Consolidated Cron Hits the Pavement in 4.1

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. (Yes, a loud warning will appear on the screen at the end of the upgrade process.)

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.
