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.

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 .

Need a +1 or twelve for a simple issue: Add an "Associations" field to our d.o profiles

Apologies in advance for this crossposting to 11 groups. I recently started an issue to help us get to know each other better: Add field for "Memberships in Associations, Societies, and Other Professional Organizations" to User Profile. The initial response was, "Don't see why not, but let's hear more support before we do." So this is an appeal to read the issue and consider giving it your support.

My search "yielded no results"

In the past few days I've upgraded from 6.16 to 6.17 and installed CiviCRM.

Since I didn't use the search function during that span, nor in a while, I don't know why or when it broke.

So, it's a church website, I searched my name, "church", "foc", "bible", all came back with: You must include at least one positive keyword with 3 characters or more.

Feeds, Aggregators, and such things

I've asked for help on drupal.org, none received. So, reaching out to my North Cack peeps.

I have a site (church site). A member (pastor) has a blog. I want to feature the blog.

Attempt 1: Using core module Aggregator, publish box that has blog title and recent posts. This works, kinda. I get the titles of individual entries, but the url is the same for each one.
Article 1 (links to Article 3)
Article 2 (links to article 3)

The ol' Church Directory dilemma

So, here is what is special about a church directory, families. In a business directory you just have one entity and their listing. In a church directory you may have 5 or 6 people, each with their own unique account, needing to be displayed as one entry.

What you really need is a block with a family photo, then names of each person, then contact info. What to do...

Hi, we are a very small church and have been using Drupal with CiviCRM for a while now. I've done all the back end stuff and let me tell you it's been tough. Try something, break it, fix it, try something else, break it, fix it.....on and on.

Still not certain that everything is working like it should but praying that it does.

Would like to find someone who would be interested in:
