Community discussions related to the Open Outreach distribution for nonprofits
Open Outreach is a Drupal 7 distribution that aims to provide grassroots, activist, and nonprofit groups with the web tools they need for effective public engagement. Open Outreach includes features from event calendars and WYSIWYG editing to social media integration. This group is a place for Open Outreach users and developers to plan new functionality, exchange tips, and generally collaborate.
- Project website: http://openoutreach.org. Includes documentation and screencasts.
- Open Outreach project page: http://drupal.org/project/openoutreach. This is where issues like bug reports should be filed.
- Download: http://openoutreach.org/download.
- Debut features: http://drupal.org/project/debut. This is the feature set that Open Outreach is built on.
Please post jobs here only if they are explicitly linked to Open Outreach, e.g., Open Outreach will be used in building a site. Otherwise they will be removed.
One of our goals in the development of the Open Outreach distribution has been to create a community of users in which groups can assist other groups, resources can be pooled for adding new functionality and we can all learn from each other. We've recently added some new functionality on openoutreach.org to help us realize that goal.Read more

I'm new to Red Hen, and I have had a lot of experience with CiviCRM, but I am ready to jump into the Red Hen flock (I raise chickens too, so it's a good match). Enough of that.
I hope someone can help me with the following flow: A new user signs up. During registration, RedHen contact info is collected. One piece that is also collected is, using check boxes, s/he can select one or more organizations that s/he is affiliated with, and that already exist as organizations in RedHen.Read more
Earlier this year we discussed how to strengthen the Open Outreach distro for nonprofits and community-based organizations. Now we've got an answer.
We're in the planning stages of putting together a new cooperative that will bring together groups using the distro and those developing and contributing to it. The aim is to build a strong organizational basis that will allow groups to pool their resources, both benefiting from and contributing to the project.Read more
I am giving a talk at Badcamp on Big Data Drupal: Cloudera Hadoop, MapReduce, Nutch, Solr, Aegir BOA, Drupal 7 ApacheSolr Views
I am trying to gather some other experts i.e. Cloudera / Hadoop / MapReduce + HyperDrupal + Twig etc to come and handle the bigger and deeper questions
thanks to the recent work of the Solr Nutch sandbox project I've managed to get Nutch 1.6 jobs to run on a Cloudera CDH3 4 node cluster sending results to Solr 3.6.2 (hosted within Tomcat on Aegir BOA) and then integrated into the Apache Solr 7.1.1 module (not the dev) into search results and Apache Solr Views
I must say, I am pretty excited about Hadoop / Cloudera running Nutch and Solr and integrating with Drupal
for anyone interested in setting up a Cloudera cluster I recommend masterschema (centos) and Gregory Grubbs on YouTube (debian)
I'll post some notes etc ASAPRead more

The new release of Open Outreach - RC5 - includes two significant new features that ramp up the scope of what nonprofit users get out of the box.
The development of these two new features has been our major work over the summer and are the last two pieces we're planning to add before aiming for a stable release within the next month or so.Read more

I downloaded and installed open outreach without too many problems. Had to get my server to make some changes to their setup but mostly it was a breeze.
However, I know find myself at a loss... I've started to set it up, you can see it here
Right now, my main confusion is getting profiles set up. They don't seem to contain any information and I don't know how to change that.
I am using social login, if that matters.
Even if someone could point me to a page that says "Do this", it would be greatly appreciated.Read more
Membership management and other CRM functionality is a common need for the nonprofits and activist organizations that the Open Outreach Drupal distribution aims to serve. With basic organizational website needs now covered in Open Outreach, turning to CRM is a key next step.
But how? CiviCRM integration? Or native Drupal CRM functionality?
We'd love to hear from both CiviCRM users and integrators and those working on native Drupal CRM solutions.Read more
What considerations need to be addressed to ensure the Configuration Management Initiative is informed by and reflects the needs of Drupal distributions?
The Configuration Management Initiative tackles problems that are distinct from but overlap with what's done in Drupal 7 with the Features module, the tool of choice for producing distributions. Features allows capturing bundles of configuration and deploying them in a form that can be reproduced on multiple sites.Read more
