Drupal Groups Churches Home

Welcome

Welcome to the Drupal churches group. This is a group centered around building Church websites with Drupal and a point for members of The Church to go out into the Drupal community. In this group we discuss how to use Drupal, modules to use, integrating other services with Drupal, and the ins and outs of building Church websites.

The Drupal church community extends beyond this group. You can find more information and help in the IRC channel #drupal-churches on irc.freenode.org and on the Geeks and God podcast website.

New Church Site

Hi All,

Haven't been very active lately. Too busy with my "day job". But thought I would share that my church just launched a new site on Drupal 6. Check out Church of the Redeemer - Chestnut Hill, MA (Nov 2010 | D6). I also added it to the Churches tab.

The site was done by Theory One Design.

Prayer Journal?

I'm looking for a way to allow people to keep a simple prayer journal, to add items, then check them off, or change the status from "Concerns" to "Answered" or the like. This would be mostly private, although being able to make concerns public so they show up in a section of everyone else's concerns would be helpful, or even better, "public" vs. "public to members only".

Thoughts?

Exposed filters view by date

I am designing a webpage where I have created cck fields and one is by date. I have exposed the date field so people can search by date, but it seems not to be working. Why is that? What do I have to do to make it work?

Drupal for collecting Church data

I am trying to create a user friendly report that our ministry leaders can fill out. The more user friendly the better. I have been working with some ideas such as the meetings module which shows some promise. I am leaning toward CCK fields (versus webform)because of the ability of displaying the data in many ways. Each small group has a leader who fills out the report. I would like the list of the people in the small group to show up in a select list as a means of taking/reporting attendance.

Calendar

I have installed the calendar module working good. One downfall it is not loading my theme css. How do I import my css so it load that instead of the garland type calendar view.

Pick file from a server

I am transferring our old html site to a drupal based site. We have 3 years of sermons. I want to upload these sermons and pick them when I choose these files in a cck field. I know you can choose FILEfield to upload files or audio field is there any added functionality that can be added by choosing files on a server. Which module will do that? Will I have to upload them all?

Calendar Page Display not Showing up right?

Followed all the steps included in this video podcast http://mustardseedmedia.com/podcast/episode27 I'm using all the latest modules for a Church web site here http://covenantbaptistchestertown.com/calendar. Can't seem to get all the posts to show up on the dates for which the event is happening but instead all the posts showing up on the date I created them.

What can I do to fix this problem?

30 Day Study

I have been setting up a drupal site for our church. One item our pastor has talked about is posting a 30 day topical bible study (one for now but additional series may come). What I would like is for people to be able to sign up for the study and then receive an email each day for the next 30 days with the daily study.

The complicating factor is not everyone is going to sign up on the same day. So if you sign up Oct 15 you will be emailed study 2 on Oct 16 but if you sign up Nov 1 you will be emailed study #2 on Nov 2 ...

A school design

Hi all,

Just to have a basic design question (I have searched all over the discussion forums and not yet able to any.)

Scenario: A school has a group of teachers who are teaching their subjects (e.g. Math, English, Science, etc..). A website is needed for students to pick a subject and ask question about that subject. The teacher, who is in charge of the subject will receive notification and respond to the student. Once it is responded, it will be made available to all students.

Browsing Sermons by Book and Chapter

I have a client who wants to enhance the ways their visitors can browse sermons on the website. The one that currently has me most stymied is replicating what you see here: http://www.keepbelieving.com/scriptures/

Basically, he wants a tab that lists all the books of the bible, when you click on one you get all the chapters in that book. When you click on the chapter, you get all sermons that have to do with that chapter.

Privacy Policy

We have just moved our ColdFusion website to Drupal, and are in the process of building up the new site. We are taking advantage of all of Drupal’s capabilities, and have started to encounter issues of privacy and security that we have had to address before.

Does anyone have a written privacy/security policy (user registration, posting of names, phone numbers, posting and tagging of photos, etc.) that they would be willing to share with us?

developer | St. Francis Old Catholic Church

Employment type: 
Contract
Telecommute: 
Allowed

I've attempted to get assistance with this on the CiviCRM forums without any luck other than for lobo to say go hire a developer but all the developers either want $500 or more or won't touch it because it's a small project. So I'm reaching out to see if there is another developer who might be interested. I'm looking to have two reports in CiviCRM combined into one report and some data added to the reports. The two reports are the Activity Summary Report and the Donor Report (Summary).

Admin themes

Which do you prefer and why? Rootcandy, Admin Menu, or Admin module?

I started with Admin Menu. Loved it.

Then I discovered Root Candy, even better.

Now I am seeing Admin module (where it uses a left column for admin menu functions).

I am trying to figure out which one is best and why. So, I turn to you for input!

Sermonaudio.com

http://drupal.org/project/sermonaudio

For anyone that is using or wants to use sermonaudio.com, I have put together a module that integrates into their SOAP API. The main feature that I needed was mass importing of sermons into sermonaudio.com. This is accomplished through views, cck, and vbo. I am still in the process of writing the help files to go along with the module, but just wanted to check out here if there is any interest in it and maybe get some ideas about features that would be nice to have in the module as well.

edit: corrected url

Downloadable File Module

A lot of times our clients want to link a menu item directly to a file for download. Typically they have something like a pdf brochure that they want to be downloadable from a primary menu link or linked to from within another node.

In the past we would ftp the file to the server and just set the path to link directly to that file. Now we use a module called 'Downloadable File' that allows the content managers to create these downloadable files without requiring FTP access.

You can get the 'Downloadable File' module here http://features.centogram.com/node/4 .
