Assistance with Open Source adoption


Paths to sustainability

CiviCRM - Tue, 12/11/2018 - 06:01

Last month I attended Sustain Summit 2018: an inspiring 'one-day event for open source sustainers' organised by Open Collective. It was great to spend a day with people who are working hard to tackle the sustainability problem. Some focused on their own projects, others looking more broadly across the open source ecosystem. The sustainability conversation has moved on significantly since the last time I looked, in about 2013, and there are lots of new ideas and projects with the potential to impact how we work.

WordPress Admin Styles for CiviCRM with WordPress

CiviCRM - Mon, 11/19/2018 - 15:39

In the past few weeks we have been looking at how a more uniform user experience could be provided between CiviCRM and WordPress dashboards. We looked at potentially leveraging Shoreditch, but quickly realized that it's dependent on a Drupal theme and the readme clearly stated that is was only for Drupal. So we stepped back and looked at how we could do this with CSS changes that apply to the admin only, since this is not affected by the theme at all.

CiviCRM Version 5.7 - Candidate for Extended Security Release

CiviCRM - Mon, 11/12/2018 - 16:07

The first Wednesday of the month is an important day for the CiviCRM community. It’s the day where a new, scheduled monthly release drops. These normally include bug fixes, minor features changes and improvements. Nothing earth shattering (hopefully). Upgrades are typically routine and easy. For many, this is a fairly painless process to manage, especially as the ease of upgrade and release reliability have improved over the years.
