Do you need to allow parents to register their children? Tired of using custom data fields on a child to collect information about their parents and emergency contacts? Would you like the information collected during the registration to create (or update) the various contact records needed in the back-office? Then this blog post is for you. This recipe creates a contact record for each child, each parent, each emergency contact, the household contact, and also builds the appropriate relationships between each contact.
The team is super excited to announce that CiviCRM 4.6.20 and 4.7.10 is now available for downloading

HR is difficult. Especially if you’re a non-profit, seeking a system that is both affordable and comprehensive.

To ensure that CiviCRM continues to work with standard, contemporary PHP hosting platforms, a future version may make a subtle change in hosting requirements.

Q: I'm not too fluent in geek-speak. What should I do?
Forward this to whoever manages your server. If you work with a CiviCRM partner, they may be thinking of you already.
Someone asked me to post this here - so that he can give it a try!
